Love me some Christmas Flicks!

We love to watch movies especially classic movies with "real" actors. At Christmas time we pull out all the old Christmas flicks and sit down several times a week and watch a Christmas movie. Here's some of our favorite classic movies. 

Without saying really, one of the best, all-time Christmas movies ever made. James Stewart and Donna Reed, can't go wrong with them. Anyhow, it's great and if you haven't seen it you've really missed out!

My second favorite Christmas movie, The Bishop's Wife. David Niven, Loretta Young and last but not least Ol' Mr. Grant himself. This is a delightful tale of the misplaced values and a little help from above. Just seen this one this year and it's already one of my favorites!

Yet another new one to me; We're No Angels is hilarious and the sorta movie you start watching and never think about anything else till it's over.
The lead actor being Mr. Bogart with two wonderful actors along side. Peter Ostinov is the actor that played Black Beard in Disney's Black Beard's Ghost (hillarious). Anyhow, this one is great and totally worth the watch.

Another Jimmy Stewart Christmas, feel-good movie. Shop Around the Corner is just a very nice, feel-good movie. Worth the watch!

Lest I forget, Mr. Scrooge, This is my favorite rendition of A Christmas Carol. I love the actors and it's just very high quality. It's aweful hard to make a less than great Christmas Carol!

Can't ever get enough of Dr. Seuss! My kids love this movie and honestly I do too.

Oops, I almost forgot Charlie Brown. A Christmas classic forever. Poor Charlie makes us all feel better about ourselves no matter how pittiful we are. :0)

So here are some of my Christmas favorites,
what are some of yours???
BTW, all these movies can be found used on Amazon for great prices.

To Do Tuesday

1. First thing on my To Do List is to make this adorable baby quilt for the new little girl coming in January. I found this lovely one that Susan made and I'm collecting fabric to make a similar one for little Hanah. 

I love the gray, pink and white color pallet. It's gonna be beautiful-icious! 

2. I am still working on gifts for the new baby so I found this super soft blankie in full size and I'm going to make two blankies out of two it and crochet the edges. You can find a great tutorial for edging fleece here

Other than the obvious household stuff I'm still "planning" on doing the flower beds in the back yard. I AM going to get it done and hopefully before it snows. 

Today Johnny and I are off to explore the city of Pecs, Hungary. It's gonna be fun and God has given us amazing weather. Yesterday it was 70 plus degrees. For November, this is unheard of but I'm not complaining. 

Okay guys, that's my short list for the week. Looking forward to checking out your To Do Tuesday posts.

Super-Yummy Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread

I have been craving pumpkin bread for a month and I finally bought a pumpkin, processed it into puree and froze it. I wasn't sure what I was going to use it for until I found the gluten-free all purpose baking mix. Eureka!! 

This all-purpose baking mix from Spar has been an answer to prayer. I have all those gluten-free recipes where it calls for 10 different kinds of flour. I mean really who has the time for that much less the money. Anyhoo, thank you Spar!

  • 2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup Splenda
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 15 ounces of homemade pumpkin puree or 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 3 1/2 cups gluten-free baking mix
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Lightly grease 3- 10x4 inch inch loaf pans.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine sugar, Splenda, oil and eggs; beat until smooth. Add water and beat until well blended. 
  4. Stir in pumpkin. 
  5. In medium bowl, combine flour, soda, salt, baking powder, ginger, allspice cinnamon, and clove. 
  6. Add dry ingredients to pumpkin mixture and blend just until all ingredients are mixed. 
  7. Pour into loaf pans and bake in preheated oven until toothpick comes out clean, about 1 hour.
*You can put full sugar, I just tried to cut it down a bit. Tasted delish with the Splenda but I'm sure it'd be better with full sugar.

Be warned, this stuff is dangerous!!!
