Team TLC movie night – Thomas’ choice: “Mary Poppins” .. We’ve seen this several times, yet Thomas says he wasn’t in the mood for any of the other choices.
Thomas says, “I liked it because I like the classics.”
Lillian says, “Good, liked the singing, 100% recommend it, and my favorite characters are Mary Poppins and Jane.”
I say, “There is so much one can say about this wonderful movie. So, I’ll just say I’m blessed to have used the spoonful of sugar theme during my early parenting years and have consistently used Supercalifragilisexpialidocious throughout parenting. It does indeed instantly change the mood!!”

Team TLC extra movie night: Another default as I put this on hold back in December. It was our turn and it’s watch it now or wait months again.

Lillian says, “Good, suspenseful, liked some of the music, my favorite characters are Summer and Via.”

Team TLC Extra Movie Night – Easter weekend 4 or 5 years ago Thomas and Lillian wanted to watch something with rabbits.
On such short notice this is what I came up with and we’ve watched it every year since! A 6 foot pooka in the form of a rabbit counts right??? Plus, Josephine Hull and James Stewart are phenomenal in this.
Quotes from Elwood P. Dowd (James Stewart) …. “Every day is a perfect day.”
“I always have a wonderful time wherever I am and whoever I’m with.”
“In this world you must be oh so smart or oh so kind. For years I was smart. I recommend kind.”
Thomas says, “I like it a lot and I like watching it every year!”
Lillian skipped watching this year.
