bringing back christmas memories.

i am loving the old christmas movies that emma is obsessed with watching right now! currently, she's on a "frosty the snowman" kick. it really makes me so happy. i'm sure jason is getting tired of hearing that song over and over again (coupled by the dancing frosty that sings the song, rather obnoxiously, that is so generously on loan from nonna & grampa), but i am loving it!

do you remember watching those old tv specials when you were a kid? we would be so excited for them to come on tv. i remember my mom would have us fed, bathed, in our jammies, hair brushed, and we'd gather in the living room waiting for the once-a-year-showing of "frosty," "rudolph & the island of misfit toys," "santa clause is coming to town," "how the grinch stole christmas," and all those "charlie brown" specials... there might have even been some hot chocolate and cinnamon toast! such sweet memories.

i love the old animation and vintage clay-mation movies. and i love that my sweet girl is into watching them this year.

i can't wait to share more of my favorite christmas memories with her! and it's only december 1st - i have a feeling we've got a fun month ahead of us!

LOVE LOVE LOVE the old school movies. We have already watched Frosty and Rudolph. I can't wait to watch more! They definitely take me back.

I LOVED hearing Emma sing Frosty the Snowman today on the phone! That is so sweet! Our girls are so much alike, although Haley's fave right now is Jingle Bells and her shows are either Polar Express or Rudolph or some other Christmas one we recorded. Its an oldie too but so good! I love this time of year! Its been so fun, especially with the little ones.
