In Need of Some Holiday Inspiration?

Have you put up your Christmas tree?


Traditionally we start our Christmas decorating the weekend after Thanksgiving.  I am looking forward to taking out all of our ornaments and lights and decorating our Christmas tree.  


If you need some fresh ideas, the following are some helpful tips from author Roxanne Hughes Packham:






         


Three Things Every Traditional Christmas Tree Must Have


By Roxanne Hughes Packham, Co-Author of the Hospitality Book: Inspired Design





I can remember back thirty years ago, as a little girl, getting dressed up with my sister in our matching Christmas plaid dresses, getting ready for Christmas Eve dinner, and posing for pictures in front of our brick fireplace in our first house. I can still remember how excited we were for Santa Claus to come and leave presents, how much fun it was to have our crazy, loud family all together for Christmas. There are so many memories of Christmases past, but mostly the beautifully set tables and decorated trees and presents are the forefront of my memories. Our family is so much fun, and there was always so much laughter, loud and often hysterical storytelling, great food, and mostly an appreciation for our blessings, not material, but the blessing of our family.

Sometimes the decorating during the holidays gets so overwhelming, it becomes more daunting than it does desirable. You must keep in mind that for most people the memories made by Christmas past is the sweet memories that it conjures up time with family, friends, surrounded with textural delights all in celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. So keep that in mind when you are breaking out the decorations that you are simply setting the backdrop for memories for family and friends, not trying to get an award for the best tabletop design in the country nor the most amazing tree in the land. Most of our deepest desires for the Christmas Season are to make a lovely, festive memorable day for our nearest and dearest.

Keep the following in mind for your tree: There is no award for the most amazing tree (that I know of), but you will touch the hearts of all who enter your home and enjoy the beauty of your tree because your tree represents your family.

~ Family ornaments!

This may be funny to some who have more than 25 years of ornaments saved and carefully packed each year. Good for you! Even if you just buy one new ornament per year on a vacation, or special event someone in your family participated in it makes such a story once the tree is fully decorated. I like to take a permanent marker and write the specific event and year on each ornament, after purchasing, in case I forget all the little details. It makes decorating the tree quite a tradition as each person takes the ornaments out of the boxes and begins to reminisce about the event or trip. Even with shiny new ornaments the old ones really give a history for the family and meaning to the tree.

~ Sparkle! 

This might go without saying, but little white lights and colorful red Christmas balls really go a long way in making a Christmas tree look Christmassy! The lights reflect off the balls and the more the better, in my opinion. It is traditional for the tree to be mainly red and green. Since the tree itself is green, invest mostly in red ball ornaments. The more little white lights the better, especially important towards the back. Hang the simple round ornaments way back towards the trunk so that it sparkles all the way through. Don’t just hang the ornaments right on the front of the trees. Remember also to do a topper on the top! If yours broke, or you haven’t had one, use ribbon and make a large loopy bow and stick it almost on the very top. This one you will have to tie to the tree with the bow facing towards the front.

~ Candy Canes and Bows!

Although I often do themed trees throughout the house, it is always our big main tree that I like to be very traditional, red and green, with all the family ornaments. And, of course, no Traditional tree would be complete without candy canes and bows! Hanging the candy canes on last after the tree is decorated is the easiest, filling in every spot where there isn’t an ornament. They don’t even need a hanger, but can just be set hanging on a branch! Tying bows can be fun while watching a favorite Christmas movie or listening to your favorite Christmas music. While I know sometimes the teenagers have other things to do, they are always glad we took some time to make some more Christmas memories together. Lastly, tie the bows. I recommend something very “red & green” like polka dot ribbon with those colors, or something very Christmas-plaid! Those say Christmas-time more than any other types of bows. You can either tie the bows right onto the candy cane before you hang it, or tie the bows, and use an ornament hanger on it to hang the bow. I find it way too hard to tie the bows onto the tree. 

Enjoy your time together this Christmas. Time is the most precious thing there is with loved ones! Bless someone by asking them over for simple coffee and tea, and to enjoy your beautiful Tree. Practice Hospitality, Romans 12:13!   

Merry Christmas!

The Muppets Movie Review

11/21/11


Genre:                                      Family Comedy
Rating:                                      PG
U.S. Release Date:                    November 23, 2011
Cast:                                        Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, Animal, Jason Segel, Amy  Adams, Chris Cooper, Rashida Jones and Walter
Director:                                   James Bobin
Producers:                                 David Hoberman, Todd Lieberman
Executive Producers:                   Jason Segel, Nicholas Stoller, John G. Scotti, Martin G. Baker
Written by:                               Jason Segel & Nicholas Stoller (credit not final)



On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world's biggest Muppet fan, his brother Gary (Jason Segel) and Gary’s girlfriend Mary (Amy Adams) from SmalltownUSA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze the Muppet Theater and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets' former stomping grounds. To stage a telethon and raise the $10 million needed to save the theater, Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tribute band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbaraclinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate. With signature celebrity cameos, Disney’s “The Muppets” hits the big screen Nov. 23, 2011


I had the exciting opportunity to screen the new Muppets movie this weekend and brought my son along with me. He was a bit tentative and unsure if he'd enjoy the movie. After all, he's in Middle School and at that age, you feel you're too "cool" for some things.  But I think you can enjoy the Muppets at any age!  

The Toy Story short before the movie was absolutely hysterical.   Some of the humor might be lost on the little ones, but adults will get a great chuckle out of it.  I won't spoil it for you by giving you any of the plot, but if you're a fan of Buzz Lightyear and his friends, you'll definitely like it.

My son groaned during the opening of the movie, turned to me and said, "Why'd they have to make it a musical?"  (which is pretty funny, since most Muppet movies have lots of singing)  I have to admit, I thought the first song was a bit cheesy.  It had a 50's feel with lots of big grins.  But it did grow on me.  Here's a clip for you to watch and tell me what you think:




As the movie progressed, there were lots of belly laughs.  Most of these were coming from the adults in the audience (a lot of the jokes will go over the heads of little guys and are aimed at the adults).  I was laughing right along too and so was my tween.  The pop culture references in this movie are a trip!  I especially loved the 80's robot!    There are older references as well as newer ones for everyone to enjoy.  (and who doesn't love dancing chickens?)  I was pleased that the jokes weren't in bad taste and were kept family-friendly (for the most part, but what else can you expect from guest-star Jack Black?)

You will see many familiar Muppet characters (my all-time fave is Miss Piggy!) as well as some new characters.  The main plot will keep you interested and the two side plots with the dating couple (who have been dating for ten years!) and Walter the Muppet fan, although a bit predictable, are great too.  I love Amy Adams in pretty much everything I've seen; she sang and danced flawlessly and fit right into the Muppet world.   There were heart-warming moments and great themes:  believing in yourself, love of family, working together to accomplish goals, relationships, and treasuring the time you have with loved ones.


The Muppets have a history of bringing family-friendly entertainment with fun plots and humor and this movie certainly didn't disappoint.  I definitely recommend you bring your family to see this over the holidays.  You may just find yourself singing as you leave the theater (I won't tell you what tune gets stuck in your head but it's a classic).

Thank you to Shannon and Allied-THA for providing the tickets for my son and I to attend this screening.

Disclosure:  I received an invitation to attend this screening for free.  All opinions are my own.

The Muppets Road Trip Game

11/17/11


Are you getting excited about the upcoming muppet movie Nov. 23rd?  I know I am!  I am going to a screening this weekend (more to come next week) and can't wait to see their latest antics!


With Thanksgiving coming up, you may be looking for something fun to occupy your kids while traveling.

 


Are we there yet?          How ‘bout now?          Now?          How about now?

Those questions can only mean one thing: road trip! (With children.) And Kermit knows road trips! In the upcoming film Disney’s “The Muppets,” Kermit joins Walter (Walter), Gary (Jason Segel), Mary (Amy Adams) and—eventually—the whole Muppet gang in the car for a trip of their own, as they endeavor to save Muppet Studios from evil oilman Tex Richman. So don’t despair. The Muppets can help keep kids busy and happy with…

DISNEY’S “THE MUPPETS” ROAD TRIP GAME

See if you can spot:
·         5 Kermit green cars
·         1 Person who looks like a relative of Gonzo’s
·         3 People who look like they just stepped off the Electric Mayhem Band bus
·         4 of Miss Piggy’s biggest fans. How can you tell? Easy, they could be
a)     Singing to themselves
b)     Fixing their hair in the mirror
c)      Blowing kisses to you through the window
d)     Blowing kisses to themselves in the mirror
·         2 Bumper stickers that are so funny, Fozzie Bear would add them to his act
·         4 People wearing suits they stole from Statler and Waldorf
·         3 Cars that are so patriotic, Sam the Eagle just might be driving them

Bonus:
·         Sing the chorus of “Mahna Mahna” or “Rainbow Connection” at a red light or while driving through a tunnel
·         Find a license plate from Smalltown, USA (or at least one that is red, white and blue)
·         Find the letters of Disney’s “The Muppets” in license plates

Happy Veterans Day And Free Kindle Download from Tricia Goyer

11/11/11


This photo was taken two years ago at the World War II Memorial in Washington, DC.  It is especially memorable for me because my grandfather fought in WWII.  I remember him telling me stories when I was little.  They didn't mean a lot to me at the time because I wasn't very interested in old war stories as a little girl.  But thinking about them now, I appreciate them and am thankful that my gramps served our country and made it back home safely.  I wish that he could see this memorial.  He is unable to travel and I have not seen him in many years.   I know it would touch his heart to see this!  (Love you Gramps!)


Thank you to all those veterans who have faithfully served in the military!  We don't say thank you enough.  But your sacrifices are so appreciated; not just today, but every day!


One of my favorite authors, Tricia Goyer, has written several books about WWII.  I thought I would share with you today that she is offering her novel Songbird Under a German Moon   (Kindle version) for free today on Amazon in honor of Veterans Day.    


So thank a veteran today.  Hug those you love.  And curl up on the couch with a great book!
