This is what we have playing at home right now. It's also playing on my blog.:) We also like to listen to Burl Ives as it reminds me of all those fun Rudolph and Frosty "claymation" movies from my youth. Remember when they were only on during Christmas? Before videos and DVD's?
What are you listening to?
Ah, Jimmy Stewart. I always think of him at this time of year. "It's a Wonderful Life" is one of my all time favorite movies. Can you believe it was a flop when it came out in the theaters so long ago?? It's hard to imagine. Jeff watched it for the first time one Christmas when we were engaged. I loved that I got to share it with him. We will be watching it again this year during the holidays, you can be sure of it.:) Do you have any special movies that you enjoy during Christmas time?
Oh, and have you read "It's a Wonderful Life for Kids" by Jimmy Hawkins? I bought it last year. It's a story of George Bailey's son, written by the man that played Tommy Bailey in the movie. If you have not read it, you truly must this year. Any wonderful books that you would like to recommend?
I hope that the Christmas spirit is with all of you and that you are not feeling too rushed or overwhelmed. I am trying to do something special each day with my girls to celebrate this wonderful time of year. Katie and I made the Gumdrop Wreath this evening! It's not as perfect as the picture I showed you, but we made it together and that's all that matters.:)
