Okay, we like movies, but with six in our family, going to the movies requires a loan from a major bank. On the rare occasion we go to the theater, even if we go in the afternoon, it is never under sixty bucks. So we wait a lot for the DVD to come out. Everyone in our house got a movie for Christmas and we have been watching one every night. I love it. I got Scott some John Candy movies, Uncle Buck and the Great Outdoors. Hilarious. We watched Narnia, Prince Caspian last night, awesome.
I love it when the whole family is laying around or sitting around, under blankets and watching a movie, shushing everyone through the whole thing. Then the days afterward when we are all quoting the funny or great parts. It is a wonderful thing.
ELF is our new Christmas favorite. If you have never seen it, just buy it. I rented it four times before I bought if for the family. We can quote it and laugh every time. "You sit on a throne of lies", "You stink of meat and cheese" Stuff like that. If you have seen ELF, you are laughing hysterically. Even Cooper quotes ELF.
We also watch It's A Wonderful Life every year. Every year when George is running through town at the end of the movie, I am crying like a baby. Every year for cripes sake.
What is your favorite movie? Rent it and watch it today. Introduce your children to it. They will think you are either a genius or an idiot or both.
God Bless you and yours.
