Top Six Christmas Movie Favorites

This last week has been rough, y'all. For the first time ever Elizabeth has a full blown cold accompanied by an ear infection. My poor little lady has been a mess and I'm trying to survive on three hours of sleep each night. I know you mommas can relate, so tell me: how do you survive sickness with your children? It hurts my heart so much to see her so uncomfortable, and tying to survive on no sleep with an EXTREMELY clingy baby is no walk in the park. I need your advice! Since we've basically lived on the couch this week, I've spent more time than usual watching television. I think chandler, Elizabeth and I have watched every Christmas movie known to man, and I thought it would be fun to share a few of our favorites with you.

1. The Santa Clause. I have loved this movie since the first time I saw it when I was a little girl. My mom had to repurchase the tape (remember those?!) twice! Last year I found it on DVD and I am so so glad I did. Tim Allen is hilarious in this spin on a classic tale about Santa Claus. You can't beat it.

2. Elf. I don't think I know anyone who Doesn't like Elf.... Will Ferrell. Christmas. How could you go wrong? I love "Buddy's" childlike innocence and the lessons learned in this movie. The kids think it's hilarious and keep it on repeat. SON OF A NUTCRACKER!

3. Home Alone 1&2. I feel like I don't even need to explain myself. This is a family classic that should go down in history as one of the BEST Christmas films of all time. However after the first time watching it, the boys were inspired to try to set up traps in our house so... yeah. Maybe keep that in mind when your littles see it the first time.

4. The Grinch. Dr. Seuss. Enough said.

5. Christmas with the Kranks. Tim Allen kills it again! Honestly, there is a little bit of adult humor in this one. I love the anti-Christmas theme in this film, how everything comes full circle with a heartwarming ending. A super funny film, but probably better suited for a slightly older audience.

6. A Charlie Brown Christmas. I can remember watching this as a little girl on tv with my family. My twin sister is obsessed with Peanuts, as are the boys, so this definitely had to make an appearance at least a few times this year.

Annnnnnnnnnd that's a wrap, folks. Tell me, what are your favorite Holiday movies?   Do you have any traditions associated with holiday films? Comment below! As always, thank you for reading. God Bless!
