Quilt Nights

My favorite moments with my mom? What we called "quilt nights" ... In the days before cable, the really good old classic movies would come on in the wee hours of the morning. My mom would roust me and my sister out of bed at 2:00 am and greet us with hot chocolate, popcorn and a big cozy quilt. We'd all snuggle in together and watch some of the greatest black and white movies ever made - from Arsenic and Old Lace to The Philadelphia Story. I loved every minute of it and plan to continue the tradition with my son (though, at 18 months, "quilt night" usually means snuggling in to watch Elmo!)
