Things We Love #3: Christmas Edition

Okay, here’s the last of the Christmas posts…I think.

The kids were REALLY into Christmas this year! It was a lot of fun! They were able to help out more with decorating AND be trusted with decorations. We were actually able to hang ornaments on ALL of the tree instead of just the top half and keep the stockings hung up without worrying they’d pull the hangers down onto their heads. (Granted, they did break a few of the ornaments. Oh, well. Reindeer don’t really need 4 legs, do they? I mean, they fly!)

So here’s a special “Things We Love” post for one of our favorite things about Christmas!

TV Specials!!!!

I LOVE TV CHRISTMAS SPECIALS! And the kids loved a few this year too. They still weren’t huge fans of Charlie Brown (Sigh, maybe next year), but Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer was a hit for the second year in a row (not much is cuter than 3 year olds reenacting this show! “That’s a mighty humble Bumble!”) as was How the Grinch Stole Christmas (cartoon, not Jim Carrey), but the biggest hit of the season was a newcomer:

prep and landing

Meet Lanny and Wayne of Disney’s Prep and Landing. If you missed this show this year, you really missed out! It tells the story of Wayne, a longtime member of an elite force of elves whose job it is to prep each home and roof before Santa’s arrival. They make sure that no creatures are stirring and that all presents will fit under the tree, etc. Wayne is a veteran and ready to move up to bigger and better things, but becomes disgruntled when he’s passed over for a promotion that goes to his partner, whom he himself had trained. Due to his consequent bad attitude, the next mission is almost ruined. New rookie partner Lanny must help Wayne remember why their job is so important, so that together the two elves can save the mission. It was great! For more info, check it out HERE.

Obviously there were lots of other things we loved about this Christmas, but most of them have already shown up in other posts. No need to repeat them here!
