In the past couple weeks we have run into quite a few aquaintences who have just come back from spring vacations to Mexico. The only major trip like that that we've had is when Dave and I were still just carrying the only title of husband and wife and not Mom and Dad, when we went to Hawaii. We've gone on little holidays with the kids but not a major nice "trip" .
So tonight I was talking to my teen girl who's 17, and brought forth the suggestion of not doing the big spending spree of gift giving at Christmas and instead putting that money towards a really nice family trip.
Me: "...and we'll just not buy gifts and go all crazy at Christmas and put that money for a trip".
Teen Girl after saying she could go for that: "This is sounding like Christmas with the Kranks. *pause in thought* Can we still put up Frosty?"
After having a good belly laugh, because well, one, it was witty and two, we don't own a Frosty, I was brought to silence in the middle of a laughing snort, as I all of a sudden had a vision of myself standing at a tanning salon, ala Jamie Lee Curtis, trying to hide behind a hand towel, while my pastor stands outside the store looking at me in shock. Not good, not good, not good!
And if you don't know what I mean about either Frosty or the tanning salon, well, you'll just have to watch the movie.
