I love Christmas time!!! I love the carols, and the fabulous scent of my Christmas Tree every morning as I walk down the stairs. Ben loves the lights, and (unfortunately) the ornaments... I received great advice from an experienced mom - put the tree in a playpen, not the kid! Ha ha, as odd as an image as that calls to mind, it works! Surround your tree with a little fence and then Mr. or Miss. Grab-Everything-And-Put-It-In-Your-Mouth can't get hurt! It's genius.
As I was mentioning on the message boards at my website, I have concocted a way to have a bit of an online Book Club. So for anyone who would like to join in, come check out my message boards and catch up! We're reading Shadow of the Wind by, Carlos Ruiz Zafon. It's really good so far.
This is our last week of work before the holidays. I am so excited to have some time off - it's been really busy here, and Ben and I have not had a lot of time together. As a side note, I was just watching an episode that will air early January, and I must tell you - I got chills. It is SO GOOD!!! It's the Bo/Hope storyline, and wow - Peter and Kristian are truly phenomenal.
Bryan and I had some interesting scenes last week - it's so wonderful to have Christie and Austin back, but such a time warp, too... you know? Well, of course you know! Lol!!! How hilarious were those flashbacks they aired last week - from what? 1996? YIKES!!! I saved that episode on Tivo for Dave to watch. He couldn't believe how young we all looked. Before our scenes, Bryan and I did a photo shoot with Austin and Christie. When we were doing the group set-up we were all remembering all our old photo shoots together. Ha - I still have a SOD cover in my dressing room from '96! The cover line reads Watch out Sami, you're about to get caught! lol - some how, that seems so familiar to me... hmmm.
Well, this will probably be my last blog here before the Holidays, so ... MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY CHANUKAH, ETC.
