Friendly Fill-Ins Blog Hop: With Abbey

Happy Friday! We’re participating in the Friendly Fill-Ins Blog Hop, presented by 15 and Meowing and McGuffy’s Reader. This week Abbey is helping me.

1. I love the following Christmas film(s): ___________________________.

2. I don’t care for the following Christmas film(s): ______________________.

3. At the holidays, I cannot resist __________.

4. A favorite holiday memory of mine is ___________.


1. I love the following Christmas film(s): “A Dog Named Christmas,” “November Christmas,” “White Christmas,” and “Elf.” (Abbey: I liked that Elf movie, even though there weren’t any cats in it. I want to watch “A Dog Named Christmas,” though Mama says it makes her cry.)

2. I don’t care for the following Christmas film(s): I’m not a huge fan of “A Christmas Carol,” any version. (Abbey: I really haven’t seen many films. But I don’t like any film that takes Mama’s attention away from me.)

3. At the holidays, I cannot resist eating too much. (Abbey: At the holidays, I cannot resist sniffing and chewing on the tree.)

4. A favorite holiday memory of mine is having a Christmas meal at my uncle’s house each year. My dad’s side of the family would gather at Uncle Milton’s house. He worked for Dr. Pepper, so we were always offered bottles of Dr. Pepper to drink. (Abbey: A favorite holiday memory of mine is last Christmas, which was my first Christmas in a real home. I had a stocking with my name on it! I got presents! There were boxes to play with!)


  1. My mom hates Will Ferrell but she loved Elf

    1. Adam, I don't really like Will Ferrell's choice in most of his movies either, but may I suggest that she watch "Stranger Than Fiction". Will does not play funny at all, but he's really an amazing actor in this movie. Sorry for butting into your comments!

  2. Have not seen "A Dog Named Christmas" nor "November Christmas". Personally, I enjoy re-watching "Scrooged" because Bill Murray is fantastic.

  3. Hey guys! Great fill ins. I especially love the memories.
    I think you forgot to link up, though! Merry Christmas!

  4. Thank you Abbey and your Mom for both participating in the fill-ins, nice answers. I have never seen A Dog for Christmas, I need to look that one up. It is OK to play with the tree, just don't climb it. I am glad you had a nice Christmas last year and I know you always will now. Have a great weekend!
