Good morning!

Yesterday’s 24 Days of Togetherness was “watch a Christmas movie,” so Mal and I put on our “movie suits,” cozied up on the couch, and watched Elf last night.


Growing up, my family and I watched two Christmas movies every year, but nowadays I love Elf. I honestly laugh out loud while watching it and recite lines from it all year long. When I visit Theodora in NYC, I often tell her “watch out, the yellow ones don’t stop” when we’re crossing the street together. (She always laughs.) And, of course, I love: “I just like to smile, smiling’s my favorite.” Murphy likes that quote too. He uses it a lot since he smiles so much.

My favorite scene from Elf:

Gimbel’s Manager: Okay, people, tomorrow morning, 10 a.m., Santa’s coming to town.


Oh my gosh, I lose it every time! Haha!

Mal loves Elf too, so he was all about watching it last night, but when I asked him if it was his favorite Christmas movie, he said Home Alone was. We had a brief debate about which movie was the better pick, but we ultimately agreed to disagree. Obviously, they’re both great movies. Home Alone is actually the only movie I’ve ever seen more than once in a movie theater and, of course, the soundtrack is awesome. I can’t hear “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” without thinking about that scene from the movie.


While we watched Elf, we ate Hawaiian pizza, which was a little experiment to see how my digestive system would do. I’ve eaten gluten in small doses here and there with no issues, but never a lot at once, so I ate a few pieces of pizza to see what would happen. Sadly, it made me super gassy and then sent me straight to the bathroom. Boo. At least I know for sure now, right?


Question of the Day
