Yes, wishing you the most comfortable flight possible now that the airlines have installed more seats into the same space. That is not exactly the Christmas spirit is it?! But it will be worth the flight, I know, once you are 'home' in Texas.

I downloaded Merry Kissmass and Always a Holiday (?) from Netflix. I hope they have more Christmas movies as time gets closer.

I do not have amazon prime because the video part does not work in Sweden. We might find a Christmas movie collection on DVD at Walmart. We usually do. Our room at my aunt's is equipped with a tv (not hooked up to anything) and a DVD player, so we take one of our region 1, 100 movie collections on DVd. Mostly old stuff but fun.
My favorite is "old drive in classics". I wanted to take that one. have to see if we have room. My aunt and uncle are school teachers and have to work mon-wed of thanksgiving week which is no Christmas fun. :thanks:

Spoke with my sister last night, and we are all struggling with the holiday blues. Why? It is 88F today just one week from Thanksgiving. We need a jolt of Christmas energy to start decorating next week even if it is 100. Oye! :think:

In 2016, we reached 236 pages of Christmas posts on December 30.
We're a small band of faithful Christmas Elfs posting, but we are far exceeding last year's goals. I think we've made Santa proud! I know I am proud and delighted to have such Christmas-hearted Elves for friends.

Okay this cracked me up: The 12 Days of Christmas for a millenial! It is a bit twisted but so is my humor and my nephews at times. :D

Twelve punk rockers drumming
Eleven marshmallows a-puffing
Ten reindeer a-leaping
Nine ladies singing
Eight alpacas a-milking
Seven hot chocolates a-steaming
Six kittens a-meowing
Five golden necklaces
Four calling telemarketers
Three French fries
Two starving Olsen twins
And a fairy in a olive tree

I'll send you the address in a PM. We will be there from Friday-November 28.
What a nice Christmas thought. I am not sure we will do Christmas cards this year so please don't feel obligated.

It would be very hard to get into the Christmas mood above 80 degrees.
It's hard enough for me when it's 60-70 degrees here.
