A Christmas Tour of the White Board

Welcome to Davis command central: the white board.  It takes up half of one wall in the kitchen, right by the door to the dining room, and since pretty much everyone comes into the house through the kitchen door, it's practically impossible to miss it.

See Stan Laurel there?  Dominic drew that for us right after he helped mount the white board, shortly after we moved here in September.  Since no one can bear to erase Stanley, we've turned him into an ever-changing Ollie and Stanley quote billboard, and as the kids have pretty much memorized every one of their films, the quotes are endless.   

Over here in the bottom corner we have the inevitable Christmas countdown.  Theresa lettered this for us -- and found the perfect little magnet to add. (This is from yesterday; today finds us at only 15 more days to go!)

Followed by more specific Christmas baking lists, like this one for Magi Bread:

We've been building a "movies-we-want-to-buy" list for a while now:

But this is my favorite list:

"No duct tape in this house? What the heck?"

(Possibly the best thing Gabe could find in his stocking Christmas morning?)
