Ballet and babysitting bring two teens together in this very merry holiday rom-com from the author of the acclaimed Bookish Boyfriends series
Noelle Partridge is known for three things: being the best ballet dancer, babysitter, and person with the most Christmas spirit in her small town. But lately she's bored by the lessons at her dance school, and her friends and father are more bah humbug than deck the halls. So when her favorite babysitting clients ask her to accompany them on a ski trip over winter break, she packs her bags for the slopes. It helps that they're offering double her rate--she'll need the money for Beacon, an elite ballet academy that has granted her an audition.
Noelle is ready to have fa la la la fun, until Wyatt, the older half-brother of her babysitting charges, decides to surprise his family for the holiday. He's one of the best dancers at Beacon, and makes Noelle's head spin faster than pirouettes. Unfortunately, she also manages to step on his toes--spoiling his surprise and complicating his secret plans. After a few missteps, Noelle and Wyatt begin to thaw toward each other and bond over the big decisions looming in each of their lives. With enough Christmas magic, Noelle might just start the New Year with lots of babysitting cash in her pocket and a chance with the pas de deux partner of her dreams.
Christmas This or That with Tiffany Schmidt
Pie: Apple or Pumpkin — Apple
Tree: Real or Artificial — Artificial, but only because I want to live in a friggin’ Christmas Tree farm, like the one Taylor sings about, and going artificial means I can have more than one and leave them up longer. (We’re currently up to 4 trees: the big, main one, the twins have one, our kinder-Rascal has one, and there’s a tiny one just for Disney ornaments). Last year I set up before Thanksgiving and left them up until Easter. I will say, that we burn a lot of Balsam candles, because there’s nothing like that real tree smell.
Tree: Random decor or Themed — Random on 3 of the 4, one is Disney themed
Topper: Star or Angel — StarsLights: White or Multi-Color — white on 3 of the 4 — the twins chose colored
Dinner: Ham or Turkey — Ham. Though last year since we were flying solo, I let the kids pick: we had lobster, pizza, and homemade mac & cheese
Vegetable: Green beans or Yams — Green beans
Song: Silent Night or Jingle Bells — Silent Night (When I was little, I was convinced it was “Sleep in Heavenly Peas”) — though the kids’ pick is Jingle Bells (which they thought was a “One horse chicken sleigh”) – mishearing lyrics runs in our family.
Modern: Michael Buble or Mariah Carey Christmas — Mariah Carey
Movie comedy: Elf or National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation — Elf! 1000% Elf — it’s one of my all time favorite movies.
Movie teens: Home Alone or A Christmas Story — Home Alone
Movie romance: Love Actually or Dash & Lily — Love Actually
Movie action: Gremlins or Die Hard — Emmet Otter’s Jugband Christmas 😉
Movie classic: It’s a Wonderful Life or Miracle on 34th Street — Wyatt Christmas – oops, I mean White Christmas (my phone now autocorrect this to the name!).
Drink: Cider or Egg Nog — Cider
Dessert: Gingerbread or Yule Log — Gingerbread — and Gingerbread houses, competitive Gingerbread houses.
Greenery: Mistletoe or Poinsetta — Mistletoe
Activity: Ice Skating or Sledding — making hot cocoa while others go sledding and waving out the window, then going to sit and read by a fire. One trait that Noelle and I share is an absolute loathing of the cold!
Clothes: Matching Pajamas or Ugly Sweaters — PJs all the way. There should be laws agains changing out of pajamas on Christmas day (and one of my favorite scenes in Wyatt Christmas is all about the Christmas pjs).
