'Fraid so.

But not to worry.
The thread WILL debut on schedule. If "A Christmas To Remember" does not show up, I know I can get a good "opening shot" at Hallmark.
Their Christmas merchandise is always out by then.

Hi guys, haven't stopped by in too long. Jude started kindergarten last week and we arejust getting into a groove. He loves it, we miss him! It's a very short day but still.. it's weird without him!

We are almost all decorated for fall. Awaiting this heat to get the heck out of here is all!

This is quite possibly the most saddening news I have heard all day. Say it ain't so, indeed. Not one single empty space? "A Christmas To Remember" sure wouldn't have a problem opening in any Ottawa mall.

I'm still holding out hope, however. A Christmas To Remember must pull through!

Also, I visited Tinseltown today. There were only a few new items on display. I talked with the owner and mentioned that I belong to a Christmas forum. He seemed quite excited and wanted to discuss. Needless to say, I gave him the address and said it was a wonderful place. Somehow, he had no idea such a thing existed! He's a great guy though, so I hope he gives us a visit!

I managed to snap few pictures. As I said, I'll hold off on them for a couple weeks. Until then, I'll keep an eye out for immediate contributions for my favourite thread of the year!

Brings up a point, Brent.
"A Christmas To Remember" is a chain. Perhaps another member can get an early shot in their area which we could use.
How about it, Guys? Anyone see one up or getting prepared in your part of MMC land?
