Christmas Books

Ok I took a picture of all the books and movies I got and watched over Christmas. WOW.....now to read them that will be a chore. UnderDog was a disappointment as the movie was bad and when we went back to Hollywood Video he said they were all bad. :( So we got The Heartbreak Kid. That was hilarious!!! A must see, even though there were some really graphic sex scenes and language it was still great!!!!

Now Chuck and Larry was another funny one.

Even my sister sent me a Christmas novel!But then I love Kevin James!

And here is a Santa Dollar my sis sent me. You can actually use it, but I keep it for a decoration.

Christmas Movies

I love the holiday season when all the great classic movies come out, don't you. I have to watch The Wizard of Oz every year right before T-giving and then of course The Christmas Story,

and last night I watched Chevy Chase in the funniest movie, I feel, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation!!! Just too much....
And I also watched Bing Crosby in White Christmas... There is just nothing like a great musical from the 50s to set off the Christmas spirit!!! I was really amazed at how the scenery has really changed over the years, I mean looking at the older movies when they actually hand painted teh back drops to all the computerized scenes of today. Take Elf when they used different angles and computer enhansed shots to make it look as though will Ferrell was a giant compared to the others like , Bob Newhart who was suppose to be an actual elf. Really clever...

Christmas Books

Has anyone been to B&N or Boarders yet? I was there yesterday and I must say that there sure are a bunch of new books out with the "Christmas" theme. I couldn't decide which one to buy, naturally I had to to buy one...well maybe two...okay, three.... Well anywho I also had to buy A Christmas Story DVD, I mean that classic is just the best and I have been wanting my own copy so I spluged and got that too! The I got A Dropped Stitches Christmas by Janet Tronstad...It's about a women making changes in her life and she belongs to a kntting group...sounds intriging...and then I got a really inspiring one called... The Last Christmas Ride by Edie Hand. This one is based on a true life story of how a woman survies the death of her brother...It is a real learning experience and she teaches us how to let go and continue to live forward...Lastly and my favorite I got Christmas Jars...by Jason Wright. Now this is one I really wanted and is to be made into a 2008 movie so I am really excited about reading this one. Hmmm I say "this" way too much! But honestly, it is a Christmas upcoming classic and I cannot wait to sit in my favorite chair in front of the fireplace and read the book. I suppose I should tell you that they were bought from the $$$ I have received from my mother-n-law for Christmas. :) So I am even happier...Please do tell if you have read any of these books and chat about how you felt....
