I am not familiar with this one, but it looks so cute I cannot resist. Actually, I LOVE Christmas in July and August. On some of the hottest and most long-stretching days, I have been known to pop in a Christmas classic and watch it with my kids. It works to distract from the heat and focus on something a little cooler. Plus, it fills the heart with sweet memories to remember and anticipation for the coming holidays. sigh... Great stuff!
