Christmas cookies!

Today, decorating the sugar cookies:

Me, to DS3: Less eating, more decorating.

DD: These are the ugliest cookies ever.

DS2: And the majority of them have my saliva on them.

Me: I shoulda taken a picture before we stowed the first lot.

DD: Oh well now!

Me: Why isn't there any coffee yet?

DD: Why don't I have a pony yet?

Never a dull moment!

We always turn on Christmas movies while we decorate and bake;
just watched my favorite scene from A Miracle on 34th St.
It's where the little Dutch girl comes and sits on Santa's
lap, and they sing the Christmas song--it makes me tear up
just thinking about it!

My favorite Christmas movie is Scrooge, the old version of
A Christmas Carol, starring Alastair Sim.

Here he is on Christmas morning, all happy.

What's your favorite Christmas movie? Oh, come on, you
HAVE to have a favorite Christmas movie!

I think Prancer is a good one. I love Elf. Wonderful Life is dear. and A Christmas Story is too classic to skip. Oh my! A favorite... whichever one I am watching.

My all time favorite is Jingle All the Way, followed closely by It's a Wonderful Life.
At least you are making Christmas cookies. . .If I put frosting with green and red sprinkles on vanilla wafers does it count?

Rhonda, for real, i don't even know what Jingle All the Way IS!?

We have Frosty, and all the classic stop actions (Rudolph, etc.),

and of course, A Christmas Story--that's probably DH's fave, bumble!
