Two Turtle Doves

Happy Second Day of Christmas!

Nick and I kicked off our 12 Days of Christmas (Movies) yesterday with "The Polar Express." Since posting about this idea originally, I have rethought the whole "lets bust our buns to make a bake a new kind of cookie every day." Am I crazy?? Sometimes, yes. After attending that fabulous Cookie Exchange party last week, we have plenty of cookies in our freezer just waiting to be brought out each day. I believe maybe we'll just nibble on those with a mug of hot chocolate every evening. That totally works.

So, if you live in Memphis (or want to take a roadtrip!) and like to watch Christmas movies, you have an open invitation to join us on any given night (or two or twelve!) for our festivities!

Here is our schedule:
  • Day 1 (Wed, 12/13): The Polar Express
  • Day 2 (Thurs, 12/14): How the Grinch Stole Christmas
  • Day 3 (Fri, 12/15): The Family Stone
  • Day 4 (Sat, 12/16): White Christmas
  • Day 5 (Sun, 12/17): Miracle on 34th Street (the original)
  • Day 6 (Mon, 12/18): Muppet's Christmas Carol
  • Day 7 (Tues, 12/19): National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
  • Day 8 (Wed, 12/20): Elf
  • Day 9 (Thurs, 12/21): Home Alone
  • Day 10 (Fri, 12/22): A Christmas Story
  • Day 11 (Sat, 12/23): It's a Wonderful Life
  • Day 12 (Sun, Christmas Eve): Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown
We hope you and your family have fun getting into and enjoying the Christmas spirit with your own traditions!
