It’s no secret that we are big movie people. Jim loves to make and create film, as well as study and enjoy it. And one of our most favorite things to do together is to sit down of an evening with our snacks and drinks and watch something together.
And now that Abigail is getting older, we’ve enjoyed letting her in on the action(no pun intended) too!
We will declare it a “Movie Theater Night”(Abigail pronounces it THEE-ATE-ER, kills me), pop up a bag of popcorn, pick out a movie, and enjoy an hour or two together. It is so much fun!
And this time of year is particularly great because we get to watch all of our Christmas favorites- or even introduce them to Miss A!
Here are some of our favorites family Christmas movies (in no particular order):
How The Grinch Stole Christmas
Mickey’s Christmas Carol
Mickey’s Once Upon A Christmas
And a few that we haven’t introduced her to yet:
It’s A Wonderful Life
When Harry Met Sally
While You Were Sleeping
While I’m not a strict “no tv until 2 because the AAP did and then didn’t say so” adherent, I still keep the Mabesy turned from the tv. So she got to play with the “activity”(Nativity) set while we watched our movie.
On this particular “Movie Theater Night” we got to try out our new popcorn bowl + treats thanks to the lovely people over at Personal Creations. They thought we might enjoy adding a little flair to our family tradition and boy did we ever! If you are in the market for some personalized gifts, decorations, or things for your home, you definitely need to go check out their website. Such adorable stuff!
I’d love to know, what are some of your favorite family Christmas movies? Let me know in the comments below!
