Last night we watched “The Polar Express” with Tom Hanks, who plays multiple roles in the animated movie.

My kids love this movie, and I must admit I though it was really well done myself.  There are many good moral messages for kids “and a little bit of Humility for you”, some very exciting adventure scenes, wonderful animation and some great laughs………….”Caribou?”

When Santa finally appears at the end my kids (especially my 2 year old) goes MENTAL she is so excited!

Definately going to become a classic!

Now for my all time favorite Holiday movie:christmas20story

The Christmas Story

I’ve seen this movie probably a million times!  Well that might be exaggerating a bit, but I’ve seen it ALOT, and I laugh my ass off each and everytime I watch it!

I can’t even begin to list the quotes that I use from this movie:

“You’ll shoot your eye out”

“Show mummy how the little piggies eat”

“I double dog dare you”

“I can’t move my arms DOWN!!”

OMG the list goes on & on!

From Wikipedia:

A Christmas Story is a 1983 film based on the short stories and semi-fictional anecdotes of author and raconteur Jean Shepherd, including material from his books In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash and Wanda Hickey’s Night of Golden Memories. It was directed by Bob Clark.
