My coffee is on the little white shelf next to the bed... the shelf has wooden hooks underneath and from them hang a Hello Kitty purse, a straw Cowgirl hat (Sheriff no less!) and a tiny yellow, hanger for dolls clothes. Next to the shelves is a GIANT window, covered with two inch faux wood blinds in white (custom made for the huge window and never pulled up cos they weigh more than me!!!). Outside it's a cold, wet miserable day, the rain is steadily falling without a hope of letting up before we have to go and ring the Salvation Army Bell outside the local Publix (British contingent: read Sainsbury's). A holiday tradition we adopted a couple of years ago and the girls love it!!!!!
Back to my post and why I am coming to you from the room of and odd little five year old... another of our holiday traditions is to watch the Nightmare Before Christmas!!!! We ADORE this movie... watch it all year round but almost every weekend during the Holiday season. Forget A Wonderful Life and The Grinch we're all about Jack the Pumpkin King and Santy Claus. Tim Burton is a freakin' genius y'all. We also have James and Giant Peach which is just fabulous, this year we may add to the collection with the Corpse Bride and Coraline. If you haven't already discovered the magnificence that is Tim Burton you have been missing out!!
Ash likes to share the excitement of the movie so she requested that I come into her room and blog from here while we watch the movie together. With so much inspiration how could I refuse!!!! Daddy's being a grinch, he's watching some truck show on Man TV and hogging the bigger screen.... it doesn't matter to us, Nightmare is great no matter where you watch it.... as long as you can cuddle and enjoy it with someone you love!!!!
p.s. Ash has a new way of expressing herself. I put a hook on the outside of her bedroom door so she can hang her little chalk board, she then draws a picture so you can tell her mood, or she'll leave a message so you know who is or is not allowed in at any given time. Here's the mood board from this morning....
Guess she got up on the wrong side of the Princess bed!!!
Go ahead, link to this post and let us know your favorite Christmas movie and how you like to watch it.
