You'll shoot your eye out, kid!!!


There was nothing practical or frugal about the Christmas of 2006. The kids decided Ron Burgundy needed the leg lamp.

In the FRA-GEE-LAY box and all!

Now it adorns our front window during the Christmas season.

In all of its splendor.

Yeah, it's really ugly. But oh, have we enjoyed the laughs!

Now how much do you think this kid looks like Ralphie??
No wonder this movie is so close to our heart.

Our own little Ralphie, circa 1992.

Oh my goodness, how funny! We JUST bought "A Christmas Story" yesterday, and my almost 9 year old boy LOVED it (and could have written it...). Yes, your boy was definitely a Ralphie clone!!! And guess what I did today? I sneaked out to Walmart and bought a Red Ryder BB gun for Santa to leave behind the tree! Because there won't be many more Christmases when Santa can leave a special present...
Wishing you and yours a VERY Merry CHRISTmas! (and be careful dusting around that lamp!!)

Hahahaha! LOVE the lamp! It's priceless!

Oh, and for the record...your Ralphie is much cuter. :o)
