the greatest movie in the whole wide world

i have basically been begging grant forever to get "pollyanna" for us. i remember watching it as a child and loving it. we just barely finished it and i am still crying, a happy cry too. oh it is just the sweetest movie. i am already looking forward to going back through my blog in the future and finding this post to help me remember how much i really love this movie. i just love old feel good movies. (well i love any old movies really, this one is also a favorite.. so witty, i can watch it over and over). now i am so motivated to find something to be glad about in everything. i love that little pollyanna.

Ha! This was my family's favorite Sunday movie, as well. We watched it every Sunday. As kid's, we begged my mom to make the cake that she eats at the bazaar. The cake 'the Mrs Lagaloff cake' has been our family tradition for years. Actually, it was one of my husband's favorite movies too, growing up.

So when we got married, it was one of our first purchases. Now, we watch it practically ever Sunday. It just brings back so many good memories. We actually just watched it yesterday. :)

{Ha ha one of my favorite scenes from the film is when she eats the green sherbet with the shortbread cookies. She just looks so charming.}
