I think it’s safe to say that, although we have yet to celebrate an actual holiday, we are knee-deep in The Holiday Season.
If you’ve missed the signs, here’s a recap:
1. Costco is selling a 10 foot stuffed bear and strategically placed it at the entrance of the store so my children can start asking for it from the moment we grab a cart to the moment we’ve had our receipt tattooed with a happy face.
|By the way, I’m only 50″
51″ on a good day
2. Every 7 seconds there’s a commercial for some sort of pet: Pillow Pet, Tummy Pet, Petjamas, Stretchy Pet, Slipper Pet, Seat Pet and my favorite My Kids Can’t Ever Remember to Feed our Pet.
|Thanks to Nate’s “generous donation” to the Give Away pile,
we have plenty of room for a Whatever Pet
3. The Stupid Elf on a Freaking Shelf has started making an appearance in our Newsfeed with increasing frequency. I have to admit, though, it seems as though the ‘ol EotS is walking a fine line these days… Elves today!
4. The Red Cup.
|Holiday cup + 80 degree weather + the beach = San Diego Holiday Season
Last , but certainly not least…
