While at the store she draws a free gift to find that it is for one free wish. She wishes for a mom for Christmas. To her surprise, she a pendant necklace as well as a literal wish come true when a mannequin comes to life and shows up at her house. This is such a beautiful and heartfelt movie about a family healing and finding its way back together. It is also sprinkled with comedy as the mannequins in the store are absolutely hysterical!

Snacks

At the beginning of the movie, Olivia Newton John (the mannequin come to life) makes the family soup for breakfast because she doesn’t know any better. It is absolutely adorable. Bring that fun vibe to your movie night by serving traditional snacks in a fresh way.

Popcorn Garland

Instead of snacking on a regular old bowl of popcorn, make a popcorn garland. Thread popcorn and dried fruit into a giant snack necklace that’s fun to munch on.

Hot Chocolate

Warm up with a delicious mug of hot chocolate. Dress up the flavors by adding your favorite flavored coffee creamer.

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
