This is our Christmas Movie Basket. We have more in the cupboard, and I switch them out as we watch them through the season. Some of these movies are brand new, and some are over eighteen years old! Some are actually videos! But they all hold a special place in our hearts. Every year, as we unpack them from the box and put them in the basket, we talk about our favorites and plan when we will watch them. That Disney Sing Along Songs video? My Grandma Mildred got that for Madison for her first birthday! I remember sitting on the sofa with Madison in her jammies as she drank from her bottle watching it over and over. And we still watch it now.
We try to watch one every evening before bed as a family. If we don't make an effort, we realize the season will pass us by and we will miss making these memories together. Here are a few of our favorites...
This is perhaps my favorite of all time. All these classics together! I just saw this at Walmart the other night.
And these...newly released classics on DVD. If you haven't seen them, you must. You will love them. Promise. I found them on Amazon.
This is another old favorite, newly released on DVD.
These two. Oh, even though most of my kids are older now, we still adore these. Mine are on video, but they have DVDs on Amazon. Christmas Eve on Sesame Street is from when I was little!
And Flynn asked that her two new favorites be included...and I must say...they are adorable!
So, make some cocoa and sit down together for an hour or so as a family and watch a movie or two. Make some memories. You will be glad you did. : )
