My friend Meli Faif Life
(who I swear is my long lost triplet)
magically knew that this would be my fav Christmas movie.
Oh it is!!!! I watch the marathon every year. I mean over and over and over.
I could watch it a hundred times and never get bored.
I do believe this is my favorite scene.
When Ralphie gets the pink bunny pj's from his grandmother.
Okay, I had older aunts and uncles.
One year Angelique and I received two pencils taped together from one of our aunts.
And another aunt gave us a HUGE gift!! It was wrapped so pretty. I could not wait to tear into it.
Only to find....panties and socks!! Mannnnnn....
But I love the way Ralphie obsesses over the gun that he must have for Christmas.
Haven't we all been there as a kid?
I know I did. You dream of it, pray for it, tell everyone that you are going to have it come Christmas morning.
Was there ever one toy that got away?
Ralphie was lucky.
I still dream of this...
The Peanuts Snow Cone Machine!!
I begged, pleaded, and prayed for this.
It never came. I should have gotten an " E" for effort.
I asked year after year..no deal.
So for the inner child in you, was there ever a gift that got away??
