Theater Thursday

It's another Christmas Theme Theater Thursday! This week we're talking about To Grandmother's House We Go

To Grandmother's House We Go stars the once cute and lovable Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Circa 1992. 

Julie and Sarah (Olsen twins) are being raised by their single parent mother Rhonda. Rhonda has to work long hours at her connivence  store clerk job to support her girls. This Christmas they won't be able to make the trip to grandmother's house. The girls overhear their mother talking and believe that they have become a burden upon her. The girls decide to make their own way to grandma's. 

Julia and Sarah decide to hide in the back of a delivery truck driven by Eddie. Eddie is a friend of their mom's who hopes to own day win it big with a lottery ticket. Once they get separated from Eddie they fall into the hands of Christmas scammers and thieves Harvey and Shirley played by none other than Rhea Pearlman and Jerry Van Dyke. 

So the question is, will the girls make it to grandmother's house? Can Eddie and Rhonda find her girls before it's too late? Check it out!

I remember watching this movie all the time when I was younger. I loved it! I haven't seen it in years though!
By the way, I am sure I would have been way more out of it if I had gotten the IV and been sedated for them to take my wisdom teeth out. I actually didn't sleep until after midnight last night. :) Thanks for the well wishes!
