Visiting Ho Ho

Today we went to the mall so the kids could have their picture taken with Ho Ho (this is what the 2 little ones call Santa). First we ate at Golden Corral...Wild Child peed her pants so I had to put on her replacement non-Christmasey outfit...Cutie Patootie spilled pop on her shirt around the collar...Manga Dork was SO too cool for this activity! Soooo...we went to see Old Saint Nick with fuzzy windblown hair, unChristmasey clothing, AND stains on our clothes.

Manga Dork slowly went and sat on the edge of the chair...Wild Child climbed into St. Nick's lap and began talking to him...Cutie Patootie flipped out, covered her eyes, and in her cute little voice shrieked "I can't do it! It's too scary!" So my photo is of 2 children (1 irritated teen and a 3 year old who conquered her fear of Santa).

On the way home we watched my favorite Christmas movie...Elf! It is so funny. I love when he burps really loud and long and then looks at his little bro and says, "Did you hear that?" I can totally relate to his "sugar addiction." If ya ain't seen it...what are you waiting for?!

Each year I overload my family on holiday films. I love them! This year my favorite new one has got to be "The Perfect Holiday." It has Queen Latifah and Gabrielle Union in it. The storyline is SO predictable...but it is SO sweet! Go ahead...give it a try...let me know if ya do!
What is your favorite Christmas movie?

I like the old stuff. White Christmas, Miracle on 34th street, it's a wonderful life etc.

A Christmas Story- no question about it. I love that show!

Sorry about your mishaps with Santa but I must admit it makes me feel better about myself having read it- that's something that would have happened to me. It's nice to know it's not just me!

Oh I love Elf - haven't seen The Perfect Holiday yet. One movie I just saw and loved is Shop Around the Corner - an old movie that You've Got Mail was based off of - it's soooo good! :)

My all time favorite is three. I can't just pick one. Christmas Story, Home Alone and The Griswald Family Christmas. I so klove Christmas movies also and can spend way too much time at the holidays watching. It has become such a fun plkeasure for me that they are now considered a part of my holiday tradition so I watch guilt free.

In years past, I have holiday movied my family to death...this year not so much. I haven't even had time to sit down to watch anything the last two weeks, let alone a movie. Maybe I can watch a holiday flick on Christmas Eve.....after I get home from work.

Two out of three ain't bad...lol! Kids that is on Santa's knee...heehee!

When I was a kid I totally loved "A Christmas Carol", Dickens is such a tradition in our home! As an adult my favorite is definitely "Love Actually"! Have some tissues if you never seen it!!! Plus, the sound tracK is amazing!!
