Before me: Mr. Browkoff (sp?) coldly murdered by Tooty, The Most Horrible.
Behind me: the roof collapsing from the weight of snow, my son Andrew taunting his brother Matthew for the shoddy craftsmanship.
It’s Christmas in the Kern household! With a little luck I’ll be able to post a picture of the gingerbread snowman created by my artist daughter Katie and some pictures of the gingerbread houses they’ve assembled as part of our annual Christmas contest. Meanwhile, Meet Me in St. Louis is playing on the television, Judy Garland beating up John Truett in a very un-1903 fashion.
I have mixed feelings about this movie, but it’s something of a standard. It does remind us that Christmas is coming. And with all the moving my family has had to do, we can relate to it.
What movies do you like to watch at Christmas? Our others include:
- It’s A Wonderful Life
- The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe
- The Nativity Story
- While You Were Sleeping
- Little Women
- Joyeux Noel
Sometimes we watch
- How the Grinch Stole Christmas
- A Charlie Brown Christmas
My kids don’t like the old standards, like the Little Drummer Boy, Rudolph, and all those. What do you think of them?
“Never mind what happens to the family; at a time like this, talk about the chickens.” Great line.
