Sound of Music

The kids all know this is Mom's favorite movie.  They love it too.  Whenever there is a special occasion that's my own, my birthday or Mother's Day, they will always pull this out and we'll watch it together.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

Dick Van Dyke is so perfect in this movie.  Who doesn't love this classic?  It's a bit of a crazy story but the songs and dancing really make it work.

Mary Poppins

This original movie is so much better than the recent sequel.  Another childhood favourite of mine that my kids also love.  Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke.  Need I say more?
