I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus….

It's Christmas Eve. The kids are busting with excitement, 'The Empire Strikes Back" is on and I am baking. Word on the street is that Santa really likes Monster cookies.

Bright Copper Kettles and Warm Woolen Mittens...

There are a handful of movies that were on regular rotation growing up. "Fiddler on the Roof", "The Gods Must be Crazy" and "The Sound of Music" were right up there at the top of the list. The trailers for the Broadway Musical had me stoked to see how they would handle this classic.  Carrie Underwood as Maria?!?! This could be great! 

….Epic fail. I have no words for how awful it was to sit through the entire show. I wish I could say I turned it off. It was three hours of my life that I will never get back. It did however, inspire the networks to air the original (redemption perhaps?) and even Glen was feeling Christmas-y enough to sit through it. All of those warm fuzzies got me thinking of MY favourite things at this moment. This list is not exhaustive and I'm sure with some effort I could come up with a list of philosophical or sentimental favourites. That sounds like work, so you get this. Enjoy.
