Happy holidays to all of you! I’ve been posting twice a day on Instagram, but haven’t written a blog post in a couple weeks. That elf has got me running all over the place (hahaha)! I’m thinking of doing an “Instagram Roundup” post for all of you who follow the blog, but not social media. Is that something you’d like? Please let me know in the comments.

This time of the year is so insanely busy but there’s always one activity that makes me slow down and take a breath… MOVIE NIGHT! Today I’ve rounded up all of our favorite holiday movies and divided them into two lists: one for the kids, and one for the adults! There’s nothing better than snuggling under a cozy blanket, eating popcorn, and watching a festive movie.

    I love all of these picks! I think you should also add “All Hallmark Christmas movies” under the adult tab, lol. 😉

    Tim Allen always shines in Christmas movies, and this classic is no exception. See what happens when Luther (Tim Allen) and Nora Krank (Jamie Lee Curtis) decide to toss Christmas traditions aside and take a cruise in the Caribbean instead. A young girl who refuses to be treated like a child discovers that she must believe in the existence of toys or Christmas will be ruined by the evil Barnaby.
