Girls Night In
Craig was out tonight for the General Priesthood Meeting, so AJ and I tore it up at home. We did a little shopping at Michael's and then squatted on the carpet enjoying gourmet Italian (aka Little Caesar's) and watched Bedknobs and Broomsticks.
I haven't seen this show in probably 20 years. I use to LOVE this show when I was little - I still do. And to my excitment, so did AJ. The little blonde boy with his cute British accent is adorable. And even after all these years, I found myself singing right along to most of the songs. Funny how those shows you loved as a child never leave you. Here are a few more that are "Dear to My Heart":
Song of the South
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
Babes In Toyland
The Gnome Mobile
Darby O'Gill and the Little People
(Don't know what this fetish was with "Gnomes" and "Little People." Maybe I was wise enough at age five to already have a crush on Sean Connery...)
The Little Princess
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
Especially #2. Watched it over and over. When Clark sticks his hand in the fire in the honeymoon suite at Niagra Falls and doesn't get burned and has to expose his identity to Lois?!?! DRAMA! OK, so I realize this one doesn't exactly fit the genre, but I must admit, I was a Superman girl. And apparently, a couch potato! These are really only a few of my favs. Geez mom, ever hear of sending us outside to play?
What is your favorite childhood movie?
