Christmas in July

Yesterday, Josh and I went with some friends to the house where "The Christmas Story" movie was filmed. It was a lot of fun and we learned lots of great little facts about the movie. This house was actually only used to film the outside scenes and scenes that occurred inside the house were done off set because of the large equipment.

This car was used in the movie, but was not used as the family's car....It was just casted as an "extra."

The leg lamp...

Street view of the house with the lamp in the window.

Once we were inside the house, they let us play and touch anything in the house.  It was really neat.  All of the important, untouchables were in the museum across the street.  I got the BB Gun for Christmas and Josh got a bowling ball :)

We went with some friends so we actually got pictures of us together!  So nice :)

It was really neat and fun to go to.  I love this movie!  It made me want to watch the movie again soon.  We are so happy that we were able to go and cross it off on our list of things to do in Cleveland.


  1. I thought it was such a fun place! Glad you got to go before you leave Cleveland. :) And p.s., you're looking FANTASTIC. Seriously!

  2. Oh my goodness, I LOVE THAT MOVIE!!! So fun that you got to see that stuff in real life :) And I agree with the comment above, you are looking good!

  3. That is too funny that we went the same day--too bad we didn't see you there! It was really fun to see everything & I want to watch it now too--just seemed weird to watch it in July, but I just might :)

  4. I don't know what you're talking about...the both of YOU are always doing fun stuff :) We would love to do that sometime! And I think you totally should watch the movie to complete Christmas in July :)

  5. I hope you were careful with the leg lamp, it's Italian you know...FRAGEELAY!

  6. That's great! I didn't even know you could do that, now I sooo want to go. Can you believe this past Christmas was my first time to see that movie? Crazy.
