I celebrated the holiday by putting together a nice evening with friends. We enjoyed dinner, drinks and spent time talking about the holiday season and what it means to each of us. We also enjoyed watching the holiday movie Angels Sings.
Of course topping my list of meanings is my family. Photoed below are my husband and two granddaughters (2015). With them, I am so very blessed, for me, my family is by far the best gift of all. We have a great life, and I cherish them year round. They really are my angels.
My family is amazing, though, spending time with friends can also be a real gift, and I hope to do a lot more of it in 2017. You can see more photos from our Angels Sing movie night on my Instagram stream. We did enjoy some yummy and festive treats!
About the movie:
As a child, Michael Walker wished every day could be Christmas. That is, until a tragic accident crushed his holiday spirit. Thirty years later, Michael still can’t muster any joy for the holidays, despite encouragement from his playful wife and well-intentioned parents. But when his young son faces a tragedy, Michael needs to make amends with his past. A mysterious man named Nick gives Michael a gift and instills in him the courage to find the joy that he lost.
Directed by Tim McCanlies, and stars Harry Connick, Jr., Connie Britton, Chandler Canterbury, Fionnula Flanagan, Lyle Lovett, Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson.
Being a longtime fan of check-flick, cheesy holiday movies it’s no surprise that I really enjoyed this one. Though it does have a “music video” feel to it throughout. The cast is fun, and has great chemistry. Honestly, is Harry Connick, Jr ever not likable? This movie is not going to win any Oscars, but if you’re like me and enjoy all kinds of movies, this is a good one to celebrate the season and watch at home.
