Love the picture with Santa, his suit is so nontraditional, but traditional Christmas at the same time. Love it.
I absolutely love, love the George C Scott version of a Christmas Carol. It is not Christmas until I pull that DVD out and watch it a few times, been my favorite since I was a kid!

Love Santa's outfit. You know what fragrance I'm digging is "Christmas at the Beach" very nice! Must plug ears so I don't hear about Dexter. Haven't seen it yet, waiting for the dvd.

Ahhh, I see the changes and I like! And I'm with you on that Dexter season finale...holy COW!!!

Carrie: He was such a nice Santa too! He was at Big Thunder Ranch in Disneyland for their Christmas theme!

Jeanne: I just burned a "Christmas at the Beach" over the weekend! No Dexter spoilers here! Just a jaw-dropping reaction. The whole season was fantastic from opening scene of the premiere to the fade out of the finale. My favorite season so far. Lithgow was a phenomenal addition to the cast this season too. But NO ONE seemed to see the ending coming. Can't wait to find out your reaction once you get to watch!

Janet: I *still* can't get over the ending.

Great picture of the tree, is that yours?! And my goodness, you watched a ton of great movies :)

Happy 2010, Dawn!

Stacy: That is indeed mine! I *love* my tree. =) I did watch a ton of movies this month! I always have to watch all my favorite Christmas ones & it helps that most shows are doing repeats most of the month. And then, with the repeats, I caught some other movies I'd recorded too. And believe it or not, some on the list I watched MORE than once! Happy 2010 to you too!
