Fridays are always fun around here - rain, snow or shine! It's just that vibe in the air, knowing the weekend is always in VIEW. :) That's Larry's trademark line. We are always happier on the AM crew on Fridays...

Well, good news! It turns out it's not going be "0" when we wake up tomorrow... it will be 12 degrees. Is that really any better? Once we get to the teens, it's all the same to me and most likely to you too. COLD! Brrrrrr. Be careful on the roadways, the cold temps and wind combined can create black ice.

I'm on my own today, solo anchoring the shows - Doug is taking the day off and enjoying a nice long weekend. Today we had a couple of fun elements on the show... I wish he had been here for them!

The first one was our morning crew's holiday greeting E-Card... our co-worker made it online. We put it on air today... check it out:

You can do this too, for your friends and family - it's so easy! Just click on our hotlinks... we'll take you to JibJab so you can create your own!

Also, we had a GINORMOUS Flat Larry on the show today.


This fan named Tina made this HUGE Flat Larry, and wanted to get it autographed for her hubby for Christmas - so Larry did it for her!

Our Pointsettia Bowl crew is hitting the road this AM. They are taking three vehicles, and driving over the river and through the woods all the way to San Diego! Don Day, Xanti Alcelay, Mark Johnson, David Augusto, Zach Wolken and Paul Boehlke are all going. Our coverage should be awesome - we're even planning interactive webcasts at 12:15pm on Monday and Tuesday - so you can get in on the fun! Log on to our website to get involved. You'll see a lot of the Pointsettia Bowl crew on our air... well be doing live reports all the time. I'll have more on that next week...

Speaking of next week, I'll be off ALL WEEK LONG! It's my first Christmas with my new husband and I have all sorts of things planned to truly enjoy the holidays this year. I usually work most holidays, so this will be really special! BUT, the good news is - I will be blogging from home - most likely in my pajamas with a latte in hand. Love it!

And tis the season for family... tonight, I'm having about 30 (YIKES!) of my new in-laws over for dinner... wish me luck! I hope they are cool with sitting on the floor - at last count we only had ten chairs - oh dear!
