I can remember how cold it was and the long walk we made to the theater but it was going to be a fun outing with my children. The movie began, and I began to wonder if I had mad a mistake - was this a little to grown up for my two youngest? A father getting a package with a female leg wearing fishnet stockings in a crate saying FRAGILE...that he pronounce FRA-Geel-ee and exclaiming "it must be Italian".
After that, I didn't care what age the movie was for because I was enjoying it immensely as were my children. One scene after another was filled with rip roaring laughter. To this day, just thinking about it, brings a smile. Whether it is thinking about the school scene with the little boy's tongue getting stuck to the ice cold pole.
The dreams of a Red Rider b b gun, the bulky snow suits,
the classroom scene with the children writing their Christmas wish list, having mouths washed out with soap,
Bunny Rabbit pajamas
I would say, this has become a Christmas ritual. So much so, that we surprised Little Jimmy with a new lamp a few Christmases ago.
He was thrilled!
Of course we own the movie but also night lights,
key chains, and pajamas.
Last night was Cameron's Birthday party and we played a game of pass the present, I was lucky enough to have the gift stop with me, and, when I unwrapped it, I received for a prize a leg-lamp stress reliever toy.
Just thinking about the movie and how we will be able to watch parts of it together in just a few hours makes me happy!
Merry Christmas to All!!
