another sign

i'm going to have to take more pictures soon, i'm running out.

christmas movies!

Picture 032

yes, one of them is a bob the builder movie, but the kids deserve to get in on the festivities too, right?  we also have the polar express, but i'm not sure where that was when i was taking the pictures. and a charlie brown christmas, but that's on vhs and our vcr broke, so it will have to be replaced.  i want to just keep building our collection each year.  there are so many fabulous movies!

and speaking of, i promised living-under-a-rock-kate a list of the absolute MUST SEE christmas movies... obviously, the ones in the picture (well, you can watch the bob the builder one if you REALLY want to, but i don't really consider that a MUST SEE!).

in addition:

it's a wonderful life, miracle on 34th street (the real old one, not the new one with the annoying girl), a christmas story, frosty the snowman, santa claus is coming to town, the year without a santa claus, christmas with the chipmunks, elf, dr. seuss' how the grinch stole christmas (the real animated one, not the creepy, over-the-top jim carrey one), a christmas carol (i like the one with george c. scott), the best christmas pageant ever... that's all i can think of right now.  anyone else can feel free to comment and add to the list.

  1. It's not Christmas for me unless I watch A Christmas Story! Lately I've had to sneak it though... Luke fails to see the humor in it. Maybe I'll strike a deal and watch the National Lampoons with him if he'll watch my movie. :)

  5. Love it, Lindsey! Luke's dad is coming in for two weeks during Christmas... I should be able to get away for a few hours. Might bring the baby, but then again, might just let Daddy and Grandpa give him a bottle and put him to bed. :)

    Let's do it!

  6. I need to add Rudolf and Holiday Inn. Believe it or not, I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas was written for Holiday Inn BEFORE White Christmas was made. And for the funny take on A Christmas Carold, I've always liked Scrooged.

  7. okay, i know everyone LOVES rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, but i left it off the list because it is SO INCREDIBLY SEXIST!!! apparently everyone but me is able to overlook this fact because of the overall nostalgic value of the show, but i just can't do it. good grief, even santa's a chauvenist!
