Countdown to Christmas: Movies

Since it’s 8 days away from Chrsitmas…i thought it would be fun to share some of our favorite things to do in the Pancakes’ household leading up to the big day.  And today it’s all about Christmas movies!

1. It’s a Wonderful Life–my husband cannot begin the holidays until he watches this movie.  And although i didn’t get it, this year i am going to go all in and enjoy it with him!!  After all there must be something special to it since it’s on every single Christmas evening.

My Top Ten Christmas Movies, It just does feel like Christmas till I see it.

2. Home Alone–it can’t be a Christmas without watching this movie…a classic and a sentiment one reminding us the importance of family.

Great for kids and kids at heart! Home Alone, $10 | Best Holiday Movies for Kids - Parenting.com

3. The Nativity Story–it wouldn’t be Christmas without the story of the birth of Jesus.  The reason for the season.

4. While You Were Sleeping– i already started watching it on Netflix…such a good and sappy and corny movie and i LOVE it.  I can literally have it playing in the background while i am doing chores.

5. The Holiday–the first time i saw it, it was unexpected but i have loved it ever since. A very cute love story.

The Holiday Movie. Surprisingly enjoyable. Sunday afternoon with a hot chocolate.

6. Love Actually–This move has all the elements of the best Christmas movie ever!! And although i watch it even when it’s not Christmas…it’s definitely on my list of must watched!!

Watched this again recently & loved it!  Love the soundtrack & Emma Thompson played her part to perfection (as usual!)

Question of the Day: What movies are you watching around Christmas?

Longlazysunday: Week 53

I’m in the process of waiting for my new phone because the current state of my iPhone is pitiful. After every few minutes I have to turn off and on the darn thing…worst experience ever!! I can’t wait for my phone. Anyway today’s post is short because I’m blogging using the phone and you can only imagine how long this is taking!! Today was all about prepping for Christmas…it’s only eleven days away and still so much to do including getting and sending my cards but we managed to put up a mini Christmas tree for Baby Pancakes and he loves it. His very own “krismas tree” with ornaments he’s received over the years!! Here a few moments from the tree which I’m really liking…it’s the cutest tree ever. Hope your weekend was wonderful and your Sunday long and lazy!!
