    Scrooged! I love that movie! That and Elf are required Christmas viewings.

  2. Amanda

    You should watch “Long Kiss Goodnight” with Geena Davis! My mom’s and I favorite “Christmas” movie.

    I seriously need to start decorating our house. I feel so behind compared to all the bloggers! No traditions yet. Nothing is ever the same every year since I met my husband!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      That must keep things fresh and exciting for sure!

      Don’t feel too bad. I definitely half-assed it. πŸ˜‰

    my cat is quite sure that the tree is a big toy for her. but i just put non-breakable ornaments on the bottom and it’s been fine (i made a bunch of them last year with the wood shapes you can get at the craft store-cheap way to decorate the tree + kitty proof!)

    My wife and I watch Christmas Vacation every year while wrapping gifts. We know almost every line, but it is still FUNNY!

      I forgot about that one! National Lampoon’s Christmas is a new tradition with Michael and me. I love it!

    I like the movie “Elf” – very funny!

    You know, you could rig a generator up to that bike and ride it to power the lights πŸ˜€

    I finally get a real Christmas tree this year! (We’re crossing our fingers that our cats won’t climb it). πŸ˜‰

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Lol! Let me know how your tree survives.

    I’ve never seen “The Ref” but that quote is awesome! I’ll be Netflixin’ it.

    My Xmas movie must-have is “Love Actually”. Can’t help it, it gives me the warm fuzzies. πŸ™‚

      Bridget Jones is another good one!

  10. kate

    Ill come decorate cookies with you!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Yay!!! You should. πŸ™‚

    If it makes you feel any better, we haven’t had a tree in four years. We had one our first year and worried a lot about the pets and the hardwood floors. Turned out we ruined the floors last year by watering houseplants on unsealed saucers. Wanh wanh.

    We do have little tinsel trees and that’s fine with me. I’ll try not to get any more Scroogey than that.

    I actually went to University Village today, and it was already so crowded (and totally playing Xmas music) that I tried to get as much shopping done as possible. It was a start.

    1. Lisa Eirene

      I bet U Village was a madhouse. It’s a bit of a madhouse even when it’s not Xmas!

    I LOVE the Ref. Totally forgot about that movie but I’m gonna have to pick it up now.

    We always watch Christmas Vacation — “hey Griswold, where do you think you’re gonna put a tree that big?” “Bend over and I’ll show you!”

    I’m also loving your Xmas decor — it’s a refreshing departure from all of the picturesque, stylish Christmas barf that’s been crapping up the blog world lately. πŸ˜‰ CHEERS.

    We watch “Holiday Inn” Yes, its old, but still a classic. Don’t bother with “White Christmas”, inferior remake. The original is fantastic with great music. We also have to watch “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.”

    We have a little 4 foot plastic tree up on a box to make it taller. What we did when we had cats was have a pre-lit plastic tree so they couldn’t take off the lights.
