BLD No. 3 (2)











































What better way is there to get all dreamy about Christmas and prep on feeling good than watching some sweet movies with the people you love most? In my case, the people (usually Wahid) cannot mind that I am almost deaf and have the volume at the max.

Now watching these movies together will mean that I will watch and Wahid will fall asleep on me.

How The Grinch Stole Christmas

Snow White

Chocolat

Big Fish

The Polar Express

Amelie

Love Actually

Elf

Priscilla, Queen of the Desert

March Of The Penquins

The grinch; the old one or the newer Jim Carey version? I love them both. But not as much as I love you. Deb

I love Chocolat -- the movie AND the confection!

I could watch Love Actually everyday of my life and never, never be tired.

Then again, I wish that the love of this season could be carried through everyday of everyones life! Always!

I am armed for a revolution here, are you?

When ever my family and I watch Elf, we laugh our heads off. Thats my favorite!

Doris Sturm said...

I watch the Grinch every year - several times and I'd love to buy the Polar Express to have in my library. I have the Big Fish, that is a great adult type fairy tale and The March of the Penguins makes me cry...but I'd still like to own it. I love movies! I watch them alone - well, I do pretty much everything alone. I'm used to it...thank God for my furbabies :-)

Angie Muresan said...

Love Actually is one of my favorite movies ever! I have watched it at least a million times. Another one I really like to watch at Christmas time for the fairy tale feel to it, is Pan's Labyrinth. It is in Spanish though.

Some of my favourite movies are amongst your list Renee. Would love to join you and share a big bucket of popcorn and smiles and tears. Love and joy to you. xxx

The dinosaurs in the snow! OH, that is GENIUS! Hahahahah

Love you LOTS

Elizabeth said...

That's a lot of great movies. They had a great article at Salon.com today: a list of the ten funniest holiday movies. I think I'm going to rent and watch or re-watch all of them. I need to laugh.

Baino said...

Great selection although I'd add Polar Express and anything Christmas Carol. We're late getting Christmassy. We normally put the tree up on Clare's birthday but we're not all together again until Sunday night. Maybe I'll feel a bit more festive once he lights are flashing.Goodness you're a prolific poster this week. Distraction . . great strategy! Is it working?

studio lolo said...

I'd love to sit and watch movies with you ;)

xoxoxoxo
love you!

Sara Williams said...

I do like most of the films you listed. I enjoy lieing in my bed with my boys on my memory foam mattress and under the duvet - great

Dede said...

The Grinch is one of my favorites. When that little tiny heart of his starts growing. My hubby agrees to watch movies too, and then within the first fifteen minutes is sound asleep. It is the thought that counts, he tries. LOL

(((HUGS)))

Marie S said...

LOL!! That is Howard and I. He is almost deaf and I think I fall asleep from sensory overload.
