I’m Such a Goob!

I admit that as an adult the Christmas Season can lose some of it’s wonder and excitement. I also know what Christmas is all about, and it’s not reindeer or Santa Claus or snowmen (though I love me some snowmen), it’s about the birth of our Savior.
BUT that doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun in the celebration now does it? And that doesn’t mean that just because we’re 40+ years old we can’t get super duper excited over a 20 min. animated special now does it? Because I’ve got to be honest with you. I am SO looking forward to the next Prep and Landing Special that I can barely stand it.
Prep and Landing came on the scene last year as a 20 min. computer animated special and it has fast become one of my favorite most favorite to watch. It is totally ranking right up there with Charlie Brown’s Christmas. Oh yeah, baby!
Did I mention that it just came out on DVD? Yeah, it did. And I’m very excited about that but that’s not what this is about. They actually came out with another special called “Prep and Landing Naughty vs. Nice” which airs on December 5th at 8:30 pm EST on abc.  I’ve had it on my calendar for 2 weeks now. So unless I’m raptured or all hell breaks loose, you’ll know where I’ll be at exactly 8:30 on Dec. 5th. Care to join me?  I’ll make popcorn.
Go HERE if you’d like to see these little guys in action. They have a couple of shorts you can watch.
*This post brought to you buy a grown up who believes that on Dec. 5th for 30 minutes, all will be well with the world*
Have a lovely day my friends!


  1. That's cool! I didn't know they were doing another one! I just set the DVR so I won't miss it because of my crazy brain. THANKS!!

    Loved your Thanksgiving pics by the way. Especially all the shorts! lol! It was unusually warm here, too. Not quite shorts weather for grownups. But the boys enjoyed wearing them!

  2. I'm learning to appreciate many of the children's videos for Christmas. Working in a private school with 3-4 year olds I have to enjoy these things. And frankly, I DO!

    Thanks for the heads up!

    Blessings and love,

  3. I LOVE all the little Christmas specials! That's become a tradition in our home ~ mom doesn't even clear the supper table because we're cuddled on the couch watching Christmas specials! Normally, the girls don't get to watch TV in the evenings, but I can't very well watch Christmas cartoons with that rule, so we waive it for December!! ;)

  4. I hadn't heard of this one. I'll go and check it out. I am so into all of the Hallmark movies so I know we will enjoy this. Thanks for the 411.

  5. I do love Prep & Landing too - but my favorite will always be the Grinch (the original, cartoon one, with Boris Karlof as the narrator). My kids think I'm a little wierd - but hey, they didn't think they inherited it from their father, did they? :)

  6. Let's see 8:30 your time would be 6:30 my time...so I will get ready with the nuts and drinks..your on!!

    I was caught singing Frosty in Goodwill. I said quite loudly...you are never to old to sing that song...they all agreed.Everybody is so serious right now...hey I know all about money struggles...so I have fun and sing!!!!

    Hugs Cindy from Rick-Rack and Gingham

  7. I looked that up today to watch it! Too funny!

  8. You are so funny :) :) I just might watch that, too :) :) I love Christmas and totally believe, that even as adults, we can still enjoy all the silliness, super fun stuff of Christmas ;) :) Love andhugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

  9. Oh I loved that last year! But sadly I won't be home Monday night and our recorder isn't very reliable. I'll have to catch them somewhere after that.

    Big yes-you-are-a-goob-but-a-lovable-one size hugs to you!! Love you friend! :)


I really appreciate the time you take to leave a comment. Thank you!
