2011 ADVENTures: Days 23 & 24

For our 23rd ADVENTure, we watched White Christmas! If you know me, you know this is my favorite movie of all time. It's almost hard for me to explain how special this movie is to me. I have so many memories tied up in it, and it makes my heart happy when I watch it! It was a tradition as I was growing up to watch White Christmas every year on Christmas Eve. I remember cuddling up on the couch to watch with my family, eating Tollhouse cookies, trying my hardest to stay awake to make it to the end, watching in awe all of the dancing, singing, and beautiful dresses, and being shooed into bed as soon as it was over so Santa could come. My husband has been wonderful enough to let this become one of our family traditions as well, so I now also have sweet memories of watching each year with Camryn ... and, hopefully Ella will be old enough to watch next year, too.

For our 24th and last ADVENTure, Christmas Eve, we plan to hang out as a family all day in our pajamas, eat sugar cookies, and watch all of the Christmas specials we've DVRed - the Grinch, Frosty, Rudolph, and the Backyardigans and Wonder Pets Christmas specials.

We've enjoyed sharing all of our ADVENTures with you this year! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
