Movie Marathons

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.
