Passing on traditions...

I love the Anne of Green Gables series.
Seriously, I love it!

I would watch the tapes over and over again.
I can recite the lines -
through the 7+ hour series.

The other night, I was flipping through the channels
and the first part of the series was on PBS.
Of course, I watch all of it.

Luci climbed up in my lap,
assumed her position:
right thumb in her mouth,
left hand playing with my face.

She was mesmerized - as was I (as always).
The story is so compelling,
and the scenery is so beautiful.

I have always wanted to go to Prince Edward Island,
I am going to go - with Luci - one day.

It's hard to believe that I didn't steal those tapes from my Mom.
However, there is a box set of 5 DVDs -
guess what my next purchase is going to be!

I just want Luci to grow up loving the series too,
a tradition that should be passed on.

Do it for Gilbert! (Becky and Sarah - that was for you!)

I do most things in life for Gilbert! (hee hee!!)

I love those movies, too. I remember watching the first one in 224 Brooks with you our freshmen year of college. I think I'm going to plan to read the books with K first - they are so good. And then watch the movies.

Wanna' plan a mommy-daughter trip to PEI in 10 years or so?!?!

Oh, Gilbert. :)

That's so cool you watched it with Luci. I remember loving the books too. Read them in a few weeks when I was 10. A great, great story.

Ha! I read those books last year! I felt a little odd checking them out of the Young Adult section of the library. As a youth, I was too busy watching Married with Children and other unwholesome TV my parents didn't censor.
