One the Eve of the great Turkey Day.

What is it about Thanksgiving that makes me giddy with excitement?

No… it’s not just the copious amounts of food and a free ticket to be fat and lazy for a day… though, that’s not too shabby of a deal…

At the risk of sounding cheesy and rehearsed, Thanksgiving is a great day for family.  You know, that group of close family and unhealthily close friends that you are most comfortable with.  The ones that if I decide to wear slippers all day and choose to not do a thing with my hair, I know won’t judge me.  That, above all, is the greatest gift one can be given.  So in preparation of the Day of the Gobbler: I plan on doing an extra workout in the morning, brushing up on my poker skills (yes, that’s how we roll), and making some rockin’ baked mashed potatoes.

Football, cards, excessive amounts of food, fuzzy slippers (the target ones are the best…  L.L. Bean’s got nothing on those bad boys), and my strangely entertaining and wonderful family.  Seriously, what more could one ask for?

Can’t wait.

I hope you all have a lovely day tomorrow and enjoy the slower pace for a day.  Unless you’re in retail, then I’m so sorry.  We’re not Black Friday people… and never could be.  If I walked into one of those places on Friday, I would just be apologizing to all of the workers the whole time and not paying attention to the middle aged women fighting over the last copy of Fifty Shades of Gray.

Cheers, guys!  Here’s a hand turkey…

I know we haven’t had Thanksgiving yet, but Christmas is fast approaching.

I wanted to get everyone in the holiday spirit with one of my personal favorite traditions, watching Elf…

Is it silly and childish, yes, but isn’t that the best part?

Christmas changes as you get older.

You can’t stay up all night giggling with excitement.

You can’t be the one selfishly ripping open all your gifts.

You can’t eat endless amounts of sweets without suffering the consequences.
I am going to hold on to what I can.

I think Will Ferrell does an Oscar worthy job of reminding us that Christmas is full of magic, sugar, joy, snowflakes, m&ms, maple syrup, unicorns and spaghetti.

Although I am totally for letting your inner child out for the holidays, you are old now and have responsibilities. So, this is the perfect time, as an adult, to start thinking of gifts for others. We want to help you get that part over with as quickly and easily as possible. Check out our store to get a head start on that shopping at  LE MONKEY HOUSE SHOP
