You know it's Christmas when...

Elf is on tv!!! I absolutely love this movie. I can quote every single line... My former roomies will tell you how many times I made them watch this movie. Trust me, it's A LOT!!! And I can't just pick a single part in the movie that is my favorite, because, well, the whole thing is my favorite. Ha! There's a facebook petition for Buddy the Elf to host the SNL Christmas Special. That would be hilarious!! But, back to point. Tonight I was going to try to introduce Murray to this wonderful piece of Christmas magic. I was super excited when I saw that it was going to be on tv, since my dvd player is broken (thanks to a little 21 month old chick) and I can't just pop in my dvd anytime. So, we turned on Elf and I explained to her that this would possibly be the funniest movie she ever sees. And do you know what she did? She ran and turned the tv off. Not acceptable Miss Thang. I turned it back on and told her she would LOVE it if she would just be still and watch. So she watched for about a whole of 10 minutes, then cried to go to sleep. Now here I sit watching Elf alone. Oh well. I could think of worse ways to spend a night.

Oh speaking of movies, I have thought of something I want to do on Christmas Eve with Murray from now on. You know that movie Polar Express, right? Well every year my brother and I have slept in his room on the floor until the past couple years since I've had Murray. He stayed out in the Bungalow with me and Murray. We usually watch a movie or whatever because I don't really let Ian sleep haha. So, I want us to watch Polar Express that night. It'll be a fun tradition to start, and I think Murray will love it.  I hope so at least...

Today I am thankful for our (mine and Murray's) health. It was a rough start with my sweet little girl, being so small. Then we had the issue with her kidney reflux. But, now I have an amazing healthy little girl. Even though she has a cold right now...poor little girl!


  1. Haha, if I were you, I'd be thankful that she wanted to sleep at all! Harper would NOT sleep last night. It makes for one unhappy Mommy the next day! Lol.

    I like Elf too. It's a good Christmas movie. I've never actually seen Polar Express all the way through, but the parts I've seen look good. Maybe this Christmas we'll actually get to watch the whole thing. :)

    Oh, and I'm glad you're blogging more again! I missed your blogs!

  2. Great movie! Haven't seen it again this year but I can't wait. I love your idea of the movie on Christmas Eve, what a great tradition to start!
