An image that comes to mind every year when I sit down and watch this movie is a memory of me, when I was about 5, sitting on a couch that was backed up against the window in our first house in Poteet, Texas. I was singing along with Rudolph and Hermey and looking out the window to the street between glances at the tv. I remember seeing my aunt Dara's car pull up with my cousins inside, and I lit up with joy, screaming to tell my mom that "they're here!" Then I run outside to greet them and the whole family comes together in the living room, all of us kids playing and laughing, with Rudolph in the background.
A quick little flash of a happy childhood memory that is forever associated with Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. I LOVE this movie and how it takes me back. It'll always be so incredibly special to me. Now it's not just my tradition, but Mikey loves that we watch it every year, too. :)
Last night we grabbed Wendy's (way too late) and watched it together. Per usual, I had the biggest smile on my face from beginning to end.

We're flying out to Texas tomorrow evening!!!! I can't wait to watch our other traditional Christmas movie: Home Alone 2: Lost in New York!! I can't believe I'm actually gonna get to watch it with my siblings and quote it (and laugh hysterically) the way we used to when we were youngsters.
Our favorite line? "Two scoops, Sir?" "Two? Make it three, I'm not drivin'." hahaha
Hope everyone had a lovely day!
