It's that time of year again

Today is the first day of Thanksgiving break. I decided to break out Polar Express for them to watch. This is a thrill for them, as they both love the movie. It resulted in a flurry of looking for the right props. You mean you didn't know you had to have certain props to watch a good movie? Well, it's not Rocky Horror Picture Show, but here you go:

We have a makeshift lantern, tickets, ticket punch and of course, a bell.
Here's a scene with the real ticket. The lanternThe bell

They started watching it with all their props, and Blake came running in the kitchen with a new one: which corresponds with this scene:
They are both thrilled and have been watching the movie nonstop. I am sure by the time Christmas is over, we'll have seen Polar Express countless times.

That's awesome. The tray reminds me of Punkin after he started watching Ratatouille. He would carry ALL his plates -- even ones filled with real food--like a waiter.

We'll be rotating between Polar Express, Elmo Christmas, and Mickey Mouse Christmas. And by rotating I mean each will get 2 weeks of play time.
