Day 5 Christmas Blog Challenge

Well first off I just have to say I did the unthinkable!!! Momma and I went to Super Target yesterday morning, I think it was about 9:30am. It was seriously not as bad as we were expecting it to be. There were no crazy lines. No crazy women scrounging for gifts. No rude customers. It felt like it was a normal shopping day. I was pretty pumped about that. Momma bought some gifts...I have to keep my mouth shut and pretend I didn't see what she bought ;)

Now on to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Challenge

Day 5: Favorite Holiday Movie/TV Show Special

Holidays movies are the best!!! There is something about watching them that brings so much joy to my heart. It's like you know there will always be a happy ending to it...nothing bad can happen. they are just all around happy movies. And for some reason watching the love and the snow and the happiness and the cold weather clothes, just makes it all that much more exciting for me. Weird? I know :)

For as long as I can remember we have watched Miracle on 34th Street. Not the old black and white one. The one with Dylan McDermott. This one.

We watch it while we decorate the Christmas tree. It is a perfect family, holiday movie. I love it so much. Momma got it for me for a Christmas present, so I can carry on the tradition with hubby and our family (when that day comes). I know hubby is super excited about it lol

Besides watching it while we decorate the tree...I think Aarika and I usually end up watching it quite a few more times during the Christmas holiday. We know every single line in the movie...yet we watch it so intently, like it is our very first time :-)

Typing up this post about my all.time.favorite. Christmas movie has gotten me so pumped up for the holidays!!! I want to go shopping now...if only I had the money. I am thinking budgeting for gifts this year will be a must. But I think it is the thought, not the price tag on the gift :) That is what 'they' say right? Who is they by the way?!?!?

Happy Holidays!!! :-)

I have actually never seen this movie, though I'm not sure why that is the case. I think you have inspired me to watch it this year!

I always LOVED this one too! I was so jealous that they had such a great view of the Macy's parade and I had to watch it on TV ;)

That's a good movie. I haven't watched it as often but we do own it, so I have the option :)
