Coming Home for Christmas DVD #Review & #Giveaway!

Everyone loves a good Christmas movie. They are heartwarming, all about family and even include snow and winter cheer:) So I was excited to review the new film, Coming Home for Christmas. This is a Norman Rockwell movie and is all about, Home is Where the Heart Is. The plot sounded sweet and I couldn't wait to try it out.



About COMING HOME FOR CHRISTMAS
After their parents separate, two estranged sisters who haven't been on speaking terms reunite in hopes that having a family Christmas all together for the first time in years will bring their Mom and Dad close again. They plan to do this in their old family home... the only problem is someone else lives there now.
The DVD includes a limited edition Norman Rockwell print!
Who is Norman Rockwell?  Rockwell was famous for his famous American culture illustrations and artwork. He was born in the late 1800’s and died in the mid 1900’s. 

Director: Vanessa Parise
Cast: George Canyon (Christmas Miracle, Dawn Rider, Man of Steel), Aaron Pritchett, Britt McKillip (Dead Like Me), Carly McKillip (Hot Rod)
$14.99
Available at Walmart 
Soundtrack also available featuring holiday songs performed by George Canyon


Needless to say, I am glad I previewed it before the whole family watched it. The movie is full of quirky characters and I loved how Kate narrates parts of it. And the "part son, part business partner" of Mike's was quite amusing. There were several parts I laughed out loud and it was quite entertaining. But there were a couple things that bothered me. One was Kate's boss who is a male with earrings. Sorry, but just not good in my book. And the other thing that irked me was the dress by several of the female characters. I understand not everyone dresses the same way, but I felt like her skirts were very short. Almost to the point of being indecent. Definitely not something you want teenage boys watching. Like I said, I know this doesn't claim to be Christian, it is more of a family friendly film, but still it was a bit much for me. I also found myself greatly disliking the mother as she was nit-picky and immature.

I enjoyed going to my grandparents farm when I was little. They would have the wood stove going and it was so cozy. We usually would have a lot of relatives over for food and fun. :)

My favorite memory is waking up at 3am on Christmas morning and seeing that "he came" and rushing to tear open the presents.

My favorite Christmas memory was when I told my kids I thought I heard Santa and they all looked out the window toward the sky and we dropped Mutant Ninja sleeping bags out of the upstairs window. They slept in them that night and were so excited!

I love the year we decided to start donating to charities in each other's names. That was one of the best gift ideas we ever had and we continue to this day.
