no glasses for santa

This morning, David offered to take care of Aubie while I slept a bit longer since Matthan was asleep. It didn't last very long--Matthan woke up about 15 minutes later (15 minutes before time for him to eat). Anyway, when I got up to feed Matthan, I didn't see Aubie anywhere. So I went to her room where I thought I heard something and she was crying. After much begging, pleading, you're-gonna-get-a-spanking-if-you-don't-tell-Mommy-what's-wrong-ing, and of course hearing David's side of the story, I finally found out that he had put the wrong movie in for her to watch. He was trying to let her watch a movie that she would really like, so he put in Strawberry Shortcake. But she pitched a fit, so he turned the TV off. So after quite some time, Aubie said, "Remember that movie that we watch?"
I wasn't sure which one she was talking about, so I said, "Which one?"
"The girl say, 'That Santa don't got glasses.' "
Can you guess what movie she's talking about? I knew right away, but David, having watched it for the first time last night, would probably never have guessed what movie it was. I'm sure that's why she got so frustrated.
I'll see if anyone tries to guess before I give the answer.
Hint: Its black and white. My child chose a black and white movie over a color cartoon! Yes! Other hint: The real line is, "... Santa Claus. He's Much better than last year's. At least this one doesn't wear glasses."

hey rudolf!

What better way to celebrate the holidays than a Rudolf tattoo? No, its not real : ) Just the reminder I drew to help me remember to watch Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer on Tuesday night with Aubie. Sad thing was, her poor sleep-deprived mother ended up falling asleep. Aubie woke me up every time the Abominable Snow Man was acting ugly (he scared her a bit), but other than that, I missed the whole thing. This is the first year that I have actually remembered to watch a classic when it came on, and I ended up missing it again. I am going to try my best to remember to watch Frosty tomorrow night, and try even harder to stay awake : )
