santa's got a brand new bag

Last night, amidst our twinkling fairy lights, Himself and I watched Elf. The boys were both out but, hey, we still watched the family Christmas movie. Have you seen this one, dear reader? We (all of us at Baxter Street including the stop-outs) just love it. It's up there with It's A Wonderful Life as a family classic to watch again and again. In fact, we have seen it so many times since it came out in 2003 that we now start laughing before the gags. We quote from it liberally and like those really annoying people who mutter lines from Shakespeare while attending the play we do that too! Will Ferrell is the Master of Silly and his comic timing is pure genius. I also love James Caan as the grumpy NY children's book publisher and it's always a thrill to see Bob Newhart on the screen. If you haven't seen Elf get it and watch it, dear reader. Your kids will love it and you will too. xx
Pin It!
