I am too Katie! I have been recording all the Christmas specials and movies. I am recording "Santa Claus is Comin' to Town" and will watch it later (I think James will want to see it too, and he is doing something else right now). I'm smiling just thinking of you getting as excited as I do about that! My DVR is already set to record Rudolph tomorrow!

My mom's face always lights up when I visit her and it always makes me smile. She is so happy to see me everyday.

I love the Christmas specials, too........I hope they have the one where the boy with the big glasses and is adorable wants a Red Ryder (?) BB gun and his parents say "no" initially because he could put out his eye.......and the trip they take.......reminds me of my childhood and being crammed into a car and a somewhat grouchy dad....(don't know why he was grouchy..haha....Miracle on 42 Street is also a favorite as well as the Charlie Brown's Christmas, and The Grinch, etc., and many others........

expatty, that's "a christmas story". it's the 25th anniversary of the movie, what has become a cult classic.

i remember going on a date to see it, way back in '83.

there was a convention at the house featured in the movie last weekend.

Still love it after watching it at least 6 times a season!

That movie was filmed here in Cleveland. My dh was an extra in that movie. His best friend did all the floral arrangements. My mom used to take us downtown every year to that dept. store (Higbee's) to see the window displays and see Santa. lol We love that movie!

Yup, the movie was filmed here. I haven't been to the museum yet, but it is true, you can eat Chinese food and buy a leg lamp. lol

Now--two people that I am secret santa for have received at least part of their presents. I can't wait to see if they liked what I picked out for them. I am probably more excited than they are!!!!

Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer just started on tv... a smile in itself.

But then my oldest (9) reads the title on the guide...
"RUDOLPH?!?!?!! when did they change his name???!!!!! it's supposed to be ROODLE!"

LOL, the kid needs hearing aids or something!
