The time between Thanksgiving and Christmas season always seems like it’s going a million miles per hour. On the home front, if you decorate anything like we do, you’re tasked with going throughout the rooms and breaking down various displays.
Arrays of gourds, Indian corn and collections of different size pumpkins gather on the buffet and side tables. The porch needs to be cleaned of corn stalks and loose hay that’s blown out of the scarecrows arms. But if there’s a silver lining in all this work – I personally supervise finishing off the rest of the ginger snap cookies that line the bottom of the vintage turkey cookie jar and return it to its place high on the shelf in the garage.
As I fill 30-gallon bins of decorations and put them back in the attic, I’m reminded by my wife that while I’m up there, I need to come back down with another 8 bins of Christmas items.
Between operating as a full-time decorator’s assistant and official ‘ladder climber’ (wife is 4 months pregnant) to place the star on top of the tree and hang outside lights, we’re also juggling an outrageous holiday schedule.
With all of this going on, who has time to get involved with complex homemade meals? Not this guy. I go to my back-up, always there, always reliable – Ellio’s Pizza.
Ellio’s has expanded and now boasts six different original crust flavors like Cheese, Extra Cheese, Supreme, Five-Cheese, and Italian Sausage and Pepperoni. PLUS, they’ve introduced a thicker, Sicilian-style crust in Five Cheese and Pepperoni for those times when you want extra cheese and a thicker crust. All of their pizzas use the freshest ingredients with 100% real cheese and no artificial flavors.
With the kids holiday programs, book exchanges, classroom parties and Christmas-themed outdoor markets and gatherings PLUS having to buy and wrap a ton of gifts before we travel for the holiday – Ellio’s is a quick and easy way to keep our energy up and continue to push through!
Don’t kill yourself this holiday season by trying to do SO much – take something OFF your plate and ADD a few slices of Ellio’s.
It will give you back a handful of precious time that you can spend with family, decorating the tree, setting up advent calendars and watching guys like me and Clark Griswold battle to untangle hundreds of strings of lights and check every bulb. NOTE: Just kidding, I stopped doing that years ago – now I just throw them out!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from the Dad or Alive family!
