Both my husband and I grew up watching The Walton's. Although we come from intact families, I only had one brother and he had no siblings. Our respective extended families are huge, no shortage of grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. We chose to have our own large family and have often referenced the show and how the characters would deal with daily life. Their home, comfortable and simple, never seemed to be a source of stress. Relationships vs. things meant so much more than, a movement I believe is becoming more chic again.
In the fall, we obtained the entire DVD collection of The Walton's for free! We had a rebate cheque from Costco and the DVD's just happened to be on sale for the same amount. No second thoughts there. Even though we could watch the show twice a day on 2 different channels, we are not always home or feel like watching tv at those times. The DVD's are great for now but we're really looking forward to going through the entire series once we're out in the country. Great Sunday afternoon viewing on a cold, winter's day.
The DVD collection came with extra DVD's from after the series was completed. Shows about weddings and reunions. But the only thing that I was disappointed with is it didn't come with the original movie that started the whole series. The Homecoming has been my favorite movie since I was 10 years old.
And guess what was under the tree on Christmas morning? Can't wait to watch it this week!!
