Christmas movies, lodging, and more....

Amy has never seen "It's A Wonderful Life"! 

  

Can you believe this? What's your classic Christmas movie?

Amy's favorite is "Elf"

Kankelfritz likes  "Elf" and "The Santa Claus"

Craig enjoys "Charlie Brown Christmas"

 

A little different, but it's for a great cause.

A woman in England is offering people the chance to go "old school" for Christmas. Fiona Furton --owner of a bed and breakfast-- is renting out her donkey stable to people who want to experience the "true meaning of Christmas." For under 20-dollars a night, you'll get a stable that has a double bed made ofstraw, tea making facilities, wi-fi, mood lighting and heating. For a little extra, you can also get shepherd costumes.?Turton plans to donate any money made during the holidays to Leukemia and Lymphoma Research. 

Super Foods

Nutritionist, Catherine Kruppa, on the show today to discuss "SUPER FOODS" for this season! Check out her picks and some recipes on her site: adviceforeating.com

Lost and Found

Ever lost something and then found it in a strange place?  Craig's wife Christine did that recently and posted about in on Facebook:

 

"true confessions; I couldn't find one of my boots. The left one, to be exact. Several hours later, as I was switching out the laundry from washer to dryer ... guess what I found? Yup. My left boot. Nice and clean at the bottom of the washing machine."

Men and Shopping

Kankelfritz read an article that pointed out how men find shopping stressful. But he can be trained if you go "hunting" for only one item. It's like bagging game. And you should keep shopping jaunts to 30 minutes or less with no browsing.

I Bought a Christmas Tree

Out of this little boot will grow a 3 inch spruce tree that I planted this morning. I think I'll have a tough time finding ornaments for it though.

 

Is your tree up yet?

 

Here's the wreath that Amy's mom-in-law made from the leftovers from her too tall Christmas tree.

 

 

Today we shared the list of gifts maybe NOT to give this holiday. Here is the list:

1. An appliance

2. The partial gift -­ satellite radio without the subscription fee paid, no batteries.

3. The improving gift - Any gift that could possibly be construed as a criticism should be struck instantly from your list.  A diet cookbook (Amy will take yours!), workout DVD, cologne.

4. The gift of exercise ­ - gym memberships

5. A puppy
