"It's a Wonderful Wife"

Mister's favorite movie is, "It's a Wonderful Wife Life".  If you knew Mister you would say it's the "perfect fit" for him. We watch it every year on Christmas Eve. We've seen it so many times that we can recite many of the lines as we watch.

This hangs in our dining room to remind us,
"no man is a failure who has friends".

This is over our Entry Way
and was a gift from friends.

"You want the moon? Just say the word and I'll throw a lasso around it and pull it down."

"Every time a bell rings an angel
gets his wings".

This is my all-time favorite.
I love the simple children,
simple music,
and the simple, important, message.
The fact that it's only 25 min. long
makes it for people of all ages.

"Of all the Charlie Browns,
you're the Charlie Browniest"!

"It's really not such a bad little tree. . .
all it needs is a little love".

And who can forget Linus as he recites the true meaning of Christmas?!
Be still my heart.*Do you know what Linus'
last name is?*
(no fair googling)
A little trivia to think about.

What's your favorite Christmas movie?

It's A Wonderful Life is my all time favorite Christmas story, too. I love that it shows the beautiful simplicity of the true spirit of Christmas. Merry Christmas to you and your family- xo Diana

It's a Wonderful Life wins, hands down! :) Love that movie! Tucker joined me in watching it just last week and it was his first time seeing it. I think my 9 year old was impressed! :) I love Jimmy Stewart and I've always wanted to be Donna Reed. ;)

When Linus recites the scripture...I melt! Every. Single. Time. The kids even got me a Linus doll that plays a recording of it. <3

Van Pelt popped into my head as Linus' last name....don't laugh to hard if I am totally wrong.
I love watching " A Wonderful Life", and of course, "Charlie Brown is always a favorite.

I'm with your husband; I watch "It's a Wonderful Life" every year ... and cry. But this one is very, very, very closely followed by the 1951 version of "A Christmas Carol" with Allister Sim. That's what I'll be watching tonight ... and crying!

White Christmas is my favorite but we've been quoting Charlie Brown all week too. I also love Christmas Story.

Merry Christmas!

Well, Charlie Brown Christmas is my fav for sure as that was my nickname for awhile when I was young. (I used to say "Oh Good Grief" all the time). Probably my ALL TIME favorite is Holiday Inn/White Christmas!

Merry Christmas! Carla
