      • The movies are so good too. Our family watches them at least twice a year, its like a tradition. I know them by heart! So happy to find someone who doesn’t tell me it’s a kid series and I am too old to like it. (That’s so annoying >:| )

      • OMG your family is the best! I usually watch them three times a year! But all by myself because my own family gets annoyed at how frequently I watch them….plus I practically have them memorized so I’m constantly quoting! Yay for finding Narnia buddies!!!
