Sunday Was A Day Of Rest (i.e. No Christmas Tree)

We went to church and enjoyed it a lot.  We got a text message from Robin that the Jette’s were going to be available for lunch between their cruise ship exit and airplane back to Montana.  we met at El Torito near John Wayne. Please join the fun!

El Torito for a drink and a short visit

We then headed for the Newport Harbor Elks to dance the evening away. Please join the fun!

Gene DuVall played super dance music all afternoon!

When we got home, we headed for the Christmas movies.  We watched “The Case For Christmas“. Summary: Michael Sherman (Dean Cain) is a lawyer and single father struggling to obtain more clients. Being a single working dad, Michael doesn’t have time to think about a relationship or work on the classic car he inherited from his parents, but his friend Lauren (Rachel Blanchard) is a mechanic who helps rebuild the family heirloom.

Meanwhile, the majority of the population is losing faith in Santa Claus and the Christmas spirit. To make matters worse, Santa is served with a class action lawsuit for irreparable emotional distress by sporting-goods mogul Braxton Bennett who never received the holiday gifts he wanted as a child. Santa believes he has a strong case because Braxton was always on the naughty list and asked for gifts that were unattainable. Santa hires Michael Sherman to represent him.  Once the trial of Kris Kringle vs. Braxton Bennett begins, will Michael be able to save his own career… and Christmas?

Excellent Christmas movie

We then went to Thanksgiving as a topic and watched “Family Thanksgiving” . Summary: A wealthy, successful corporate lawyer (Daphne Zuniga, “One Tree Hill”) is living the high life in New York City with little time for anything except her lavish lifestyle until a close encounter with a bizarre mystic (Academy Award® Winner Faye Dunaway, “Network”) drops her into an alternative reality to see what her life might have been like had she made different choices.

Excellent feel good movie
