My sister's family, The Stebbins, are in town visiting. It's so much fun to be Aunt Leslie to my super cute nieces Taylor and Makenzie. I always bring dvds from my place for them to watch. This time it was Pee-Wee's Playhouse set 1 & 2, Powerpuff Girls "Meet the Beat-Alls," Yellow Submarine and my all time favorite Willow with Val Kilmer and Warwick Davis. I forgot how much I loved this movie. Story by George Lucas and directed by Ron Howard which is so 80's. What was it about the kids movies in the 80's that made them so awesome? Well anyway my favorite part is when they sled on the shield and Val Kilmer falls off and turns into a big snowball. Both girls having been asking to watch it which makes me very excited. Tomorrow is the last day of their visit and I will be sad to see them go. They have been visiting more but I am going to make an effort to go visit them in MA. I'm taking 2 classes next semester plus the LeslieGallery business is branching out into more ways to collect your memories into one place. What's your favorite 80's movie?


  1. I have a lot of favorite 80s movies, but in the same vein as Willow, I'm gonna go with Labyrinth! I bet your nieces would like that one, too. My younger cousins love it, especially the "Magic Dance" song where Bowie tosses the baby into the air.

    Sidenote: does it creep anyone else out to watch PeeWee's Playhouse now?

  2. oh yes I showed them Labyrinth last time they visited and they loved it. We did the Magic Dance too.

    Watching Pee-Wee now, it's still so creative. It teaches a lot of good lessons and gets you to use your imagination.
