A few of my favorite lines from a great Christmas movie that is sure to become a classic…
“You sit on a throne of lies!”
“You smell like beef and cheese, you don’t smell like Santa.”
“Smiling’s my favorite.”
“We elves try to stick to the four major food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup.”
“What about Santa’s cookies? I suppose parents eat those too?”
“Watch out! The yellow ones don’t stop.”
“I’m sorry I ruined your lives, and crammed eleven cookies in the VCR.”
To pass the time today while we wait for word on Chip’s mom, the kids and I are watching Elf. Talk about a great way to keep your mind off of things! This has got to be one of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen. Jon Favreau is a genius! If you haven’t seen this movie, don’t even bother to rent it. Just go out and buy it. It’s definitely worth every penny!
Chip’s mom went in to have a heart cath at 11am today and they were then taking her to put in a pacemaker. Should be done anytime now and then Chip will be on his way home. We appreciate all of your prayers and I’ll be back later this afternoon to update on how everything went.
Chip’s mom came through the surgery fine. She’s back to her normal goofy self (maybe even a bit more so than usual with all the drugs she’s on) and will hopefully get to come home tomorrow sometime. Chip’s on his way home for a few hours and then will go back up this evening to relieve his sister for a while. Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes!
