The Nativity Story. A Christmas Story. It's a Wonderful Life. A Charlie Brown Christmas. Prep and Landing. Prep and Landing: Naughty or Nice. Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. Elf.)
5. Enjoy eating meals on my newly expanded set of Christmas dishes.

One night we were at Hollywood Studios and I tried to talk more of my family into going to see the lights. Don was the only one to walk there with me; I LOVED the lights and music and snow! It was so fun & I hated the little kids missed it.

Gail: We go every year to get us in the holiday spirit. It's so festive! Most years I have to wear a jacket. This year, I will probably be in short sleeves. Which means I will need the extra help feeling Christmas-y.

It was very festive! Maybe you'll get some cooler temps soon We needed jackets while we were there. I can see why y'all go every year, so fun!
