It's beginning to feel a lot like...Christmas movies.

Well, I'm definitely not going to be able to start my wedding recaps until after Christmas. We received some, but not all, of our photos, and though I could start with the getting ready ones, I want to edit some of them in photoshop first. Tanja doesn't really do much post-editing on her photos, and the perfectionist and photo blog junkie that is me feels like messing around with some of the pictures and making them go MY way! At any rate, it's too busy now, so I'll start after Christmas, I promise.

Quick question: I am such a photoshop novice that it's quite pathetic(I'm learning as I go). I cannot for the life of me figure out how to make a photo sepia. Is it somewhere normal, or do you need a special extra thingy? I even went to the help tutorial, which wasn't. ;-}

As it's the night before the night before Christmas, I'm about to continue with my longstanding tradition of watching Christmas-themed movies. These are some of my personal favourites that I make sure to watch every year:
Such a sweet movie. Mara Wilson is adorable, and it never fails to make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Despite the fact that I love classic films, I've never seen the original. I just love this one too much.

So funny. I'll admit Juliette Lewis is more annoying than a movie starring Chris Rock, Martin Lawrence and Eddie Murphy (and that would be unimaginably annoying), but Madeline Kahn (RIP, Love her) is hysterical, and it's generally a totally fun movie.

Ok, who doesn't love Love Actually? My favourites are Liam Neeson and his stepson, Bill Nighy, and Hugh Grant with Martine McCutcheon. Not that I don't love the rest. Except Laura Linney, who has always bugged me a bit. Ah well.

I think I've been watching this movie every Christmas since I was about twelve. I just love it. Does anyone else tear up at the end when Macauley Culkin sees the old man next door reunited with his family?

Ah, Judy. Need I say more? It's not exactly a Christmas movie, but it's the Christmas scene that's so memorable. Have yourself a merry little Christmas...sniff.

Kate and Cary. Love these two together! It's a really sweet, fun movie.

And some other happy, lovely, warm & fuzzy movies I love to watch around Christmas-time, even if they're only Christmas-themed in parts. Or not at all!

Yes, I know, you're seeing a trend here. But seriously, it's ALWAYS a good time to watch Judy Garland...but Christmas is even better. :-)

Happy holidays, festive season, Christmas, etc, everyone!
