I am really getting to get into the holiday spirit now, seeing the snow pictures really made me realize how I am so looking forward to the music being on, the shows and movies on, and especially the decorations. I am so excited about it. Woooohoooo!!!!
Hope the back feels better soon!!!

Of course! This week we've watched "Hold That Ghost" (Abbott & Costello), and last night we saw "The Mysterious Mr. Wong" (Bela Lugosi). More to come! We haven't screened that new DVD of the restored "The Devil Bat" yet! (more Bela Lugosi)

P.S. Ryan---Don't forget to let us know what you think of "Double Door."

I forgot to wrote this in my earlier post, my oldest is starting to question the existence of Santa Claus.
When my wife was getting ready to leave for work this morning, he kept asking her if she is really Santa Claus. Her response was classic, "Do I look like a jolly fat guy?" But he kept asking if she was the one that brought the presents.
I knew this wasn't going to last forever, but it is really sad that my oldest is starting to not believe in Santa anymore. I truly believed until I was 13-14 years old. I don't want to tell him yet, I was hoping to get through one last Christmas with him truly believing. Hopefully he won't question it again for a little while, but reality is coming and we must let him know probably sooner rather than later.
This has really upset me, I am not ready for him to not believe anymore. I just really don't want him to ruin it for his little brother. I still believe in Santa Claus, and I need to let him know that Santa was a real person and we have to keep his legacy going.

I am going to have to pick up the book "The Santa Club" that was reviewed here a few years ago, and let him read it to try to not ruin it for his brother. http://christmasfinest.com/2011/09/1...he-santa-club/

Well, I am going to try to go to work.

Have a great day, talk to you all tonight.

I enjoy watching the Halloween series, especially part one & two!

I always have Fear Fest on, even if it's just background noise.

We plan to watch The Exorcist & Rosemary's Baby this week, possibly The Omen, too.

That has to be tough, but I think you've got the right idea on how to continue to instill your beliefs in the boys. Thinking of you.

Good luck!!

I will always believe!!!!

I see you went to work. Hope your back cooperates. I have some trouble, too, and I know it's no fun.
