I know, i know. I need HELP, but i LOVE the Kenny and Dolly Christmas Special! It was a CBS special on in the early 80's [december 2, 1984 to be exact...], and i am telling you, you cannot get any better. Last year, i searched on Amazon and found the whole thing on CD which was fantastic. While not a parent yet, I believe in carrying on Christmas traditions and this one is near and dear to my heart. My future children will thank me one day. [Matt thinks i am crazy, so i brought the CD to work instead...Now my office thinks I'm crazy...but i guess that is...normal? I have accepted it. I am ok with it. No worries about me my friend.]
YESTERDAY, i searched Amazon AGAIN to see if by CHANCE i could find it on DVD or something...yea...good thinking. OF COURSE NOT. 1984 TV SPECIAL GENIUS! Who would really hold onto this b/c who really would WANT something of this sort? [Jenna Marie Lewis Cox would]
So i got sad. :(
But then figured i can still enjoy via YOUTUBE. [thank you worldwide youtube fans who love Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton's ONCE UPON A CHRISTMAS special like i do. you have brought joy to my heart]
Anyhoot, enjoy this 2nd installment of joy to your heart.

Yes, my car said 11 degrees. The news said the wind chill was even colder than that. THIS feels like Christmas. (Although it is supposed to be rainy and 60 on Wednesday, but that is beside the point...)
SO, in honor of this Christmasy wintry loveliness, enjoy this Christmas blast from MY past (TURN THAT VOLUME UP!):
(are those mannequins scary to anyone else? Sheesh...)
Yes this is Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton's A Christmas to Remember. I remember dancing around the living room when i was a kid with my brother as we were decorating the tree and singing to these songs and then again on Christmas morning while we were opening presents. Nothing like it. If only i could find this on video to make my kids watch this. That would be a dream past down. ha! (yes i did say "make" them. They don't have a say so in this.)

For those of you curious what LBD means, it means Like Bad Donkies. Noooooo. Little Biddy Darlings....(i could do this all day...)
Lunch Bunch Dinner. You see, we all worked together for quite some time at this one [undisclosed] location. we would eat lunch together every day and it was glorious.
Well, i changed jobs to where i am now, crazy things happened and another one of us also changed. Well, we didnt want our lunch lovliness to end, so we started our dinner group. WALAAAH. Here are our recaps from our Christmas party:
What are some of your Christmas party gifts?

then it was time to chop everything up. I decided to make it cute for my hunny:
collective "awwww"? Anybody?
ok, this stuff was AMAZING. so much flavor!
then we spun:
shew! that was a lot of spinning. i think that covers my work out for the day.
Pat and form the dough
and add crazy amounts of the awesome pizza sauce
i made a little baby one too...
THEN add as much or as little toppings as you want:
throw that sucker in the oven on 450 for 15 minutes:
and VOILA is an understatement.
This crap is gooooood.
what other toppings do you think would be good?
what good substitutes do you have?
Why am i so obsessed with cooking lately?
Dear Darling Blogger and Reader,
I need you and you need me. we check up on each other and encourage each other with thoughtful comments. This Christmas you can "encourage" me with one thing: creative present ideas for my hunny.
Come on. I would do the same for you if you were in my predicament! I trust your judgement. Anything goes. There are no bad ideas (well..maybe...)
So please, please, PLEASE, send me your wonderful, creative Christmas present ideas for the most precious darling that you have. For me, his name is Matt...and he still only has one arm.
Much love and peace to you this holiday season. May you be filled with creative ideas to send to me and may you find all the wonderful presents and love that you need this year.
Love and Sincerely,
Jenna Marie Lewis Cox of the Quirkie Bird
