My Own DVD Player

It's Funny Friday

Color me happy....
I guess I have "some splainin' to do".  Okay, let's back up....Mom bought Dad the set of Star Wars(T) on DVD for Christmas.  Our DVD player was about 5 years old and wasn't advanced to play all of the discs properly, so Dad bought a new DVD player.  Ah ha.....but the old one was in perfect condition?  Right Dad?

Now about the beginning of October (no kiddin') Mom starts with "is it to early to watch Christmas movies?"  And Dad's reply "yes".  It's like a family tradition, honest, it never changes.  But now MY DVD player is upstairs in the my craft room - COLOR ME HAPPY!  So, I can watch  movies anytime I want and it can be Christmas all year.

Well, after Dad set it up for ME of course we had to test it to make sure it played correctly.  My all time dream for Dad to say to Mom, "pick out a movie and let's see if this works", I thought I was going to faint, my old, bent knees were weak, was I hearing correctly?  Of course Mom brought in one of OUR favorite movies and Dad set it up and turned it on.  HEAVEN, I was in Christmas year round HEAVEN!

And....the "bestest" place in the whole wide world to be is in NYC at Christmas.  And there is the Empire State Building.  I just had to tell myself, "breathe Prudence, deep breaths, breathe..."
COLOR this teddy bear HAPPY!

Have a beary happy weekend.  You know what I'll be doin'!  Giggle.  Christmas time, happy time, let's watch Charlie Brown, Mom.  It's only 298 days till Christmas!  Yippee.
He sleeps in the Christmas Linen Closet, & we have all become bestest of friends.  And, Alf LOVES kitties too.
 Shh...Alien sleeping.

  1. Dear Prudence, I hope you enjoy your Christmas DVD's for a long time to come. Christmas is a very special time of year and it's a pity we don't keep the spirit of Christmas alive all year least you are taking a step in the right direction!

  2. what an interesting story about... Christmas. Yes, it's only 298 days till Christmas! Have a good time watching Charlie Brown :)

  3. Oh My what a happy story!!!

    You are spoiled little bear!!!
    And Alf is so sweet!!!

    Happy Beary Weekend!!!

  4. My dear Prudence is wonderful that you have a DVD, will be very fun to watch with the whole family!!many kisses his father deserves because it was a great gift ...Alf is very beautiful and we love it...and a picture of family.have a wonderful weekend with a mountain of kisses.

  5. Prudence can you bring your DVD player to camp, we all love Christmas movies? I'm happy Alf is all cuddled up with the Christmas things, he looks comfy and can look after them, just in
    case the ants come and make a nest. That happened to Granny one year. Wow you don't want to know what she said. I hid in the cupboard all day.
    I can't wait to see you at camp.

  6. Oooh, lucky girl Prudence! We've been watching all sorts of things while LT's been off, we think she's trying to recapture her childhood ;o)

  7. I like the idea of Christmas all year round... as long as I don't have to think about making my cards yet!

    Alf looks very cosy snuggled up in there, I'm glad he's behaving himself.

    Hugs, Nicki and LT, xx

  8. Hi Bears, did you miss me - naw, I thought not. I have been reading your adventures honest, though can you tell Mom that the lovely scroll down effect that reveals the text on your blog just doesn't work on my iPad, so I can see your pictures but not read the text unless I go on a real puter.
    Looks like you're having heaps of fun and that you're all getting up to your usual mischief!

  9. Hi Prudence,

    Yeah!! You have your own DVD player. We have one in our room and get to watch our Christmas movies every day if we want to. We have a VHS player too for the older movies that aren't on DVD. We're happy to hear Alf is friendly and doesn't eat kitties. What a relief. How many more days until we get to go to camp? We keep asking M but she says we'll find out soon enough, whatever that means. Can we bring a portable DVD player to camp?
    Enjoy your movies.

  10. Gee Prudence we don't even have a tv in the craft room. You are so lucky! Really? Only 298 days till Christmas! We're going to start writing our letter and our list to Santa.

    Alf is so cute! We are happy that he is part of your family.

    Have fun watching Christmas movies.

    We can hardly wait to see you at camp.
