Christmas Movie List...

There is nothing like a Pandora radio station created around White Christmas by Bing Crosby or the feeling you get after watching one of these Christmas flicks listed below. Isn't it amazing how a movie can make you feel all warm and cuddly inside. These are a few of my Christmas season required viewings: (in no particular order, mind you)

2.       White Christmas
3.       The Holiday
4.       Elf
10.   Home Alone
13.   Prancer
15.   Love Actually
   20.   The Polar Express

What puts you in the Christmas spirit?

Thanksgiving was spent with the Tison family in Arkladelphia. Lazy days were filled with holidayish food and football, hiking trails and sightseeing, games and Christmas movies...

{dogs = blondie is Bailey, brindle is Butters, and the precious black one is Sausage Bear}
 It is now officially ok to start playing my Bing Crosby Christmas cd over and over! yesssss....

give thanks...

I am sure every family has their own way of celebrating and sharing the holidays together. Growing up I couldn't imagine spending the holidays doing anything other than helping Mom in the kitchen and having everyone around the dining room table{that is only used for special occasions}; however, times changed, people grow up and traditions are altered to accomodate our lifestyles. This year my brother in law and my sister are going to be with his side of the family for Thanksgiving {which means she will be in town for Christmas-woohoooo!} I will be joining my boyfriend's family in Arkansas where they have rented a little cabin by the lake. Luckily Lauren and David were in town this last weekend and we were able to have an early "Thanksgiving" dinner at Mom and Dad's. 
{I got to see Lauren's growing belly :) and in true Mother form
the house was decorated like the fall section at Michaels.}
{I tried a new recipe: Roasted Acorn Squash and Garlic Mash - It was a hit!}
{Mom found these cute butterfly baby shoes*the baby boy version with trains is coming in the mail}
{there was dancing...}
{and lots of eating! I looove the holidays!}

Leslie wasn't able to make it for early thanksgiving because she was working and is coming in town for the actual holiday! We missed you, Les.
