Reason #3755 why I love Chas

Chas is a die hard Babe fan. 

In fact, Babe is in this filmmaker's top three favorite movies of all time. 

If Chas is quoting a movie it's always one of four films: Babe101 DalmationsRobin Hood (Disney version), or It's a Wonderful Life

We've already decided what our Halloween costumes will be the first year we have our little cryings: Chas will be Farmer Hoggett, I will be Fly, and little cryings will be Babe. 

Lying in bed Monday night, Chas eagerly asked me to tell him all about the sheep dog competition I saw with my mom and sister earlier that day. 
Wide-eyed, he was hanging on my every word. 

I also told him how I saw advertisements for an upcoming sheepdog trial documentary film called Away To Me

Then he wrote this facebook status: 

"Sam went to the sheepdog trials in Midway today. Without me. People were filming there to make a documentary about sheepdog competitions. Somebody has stolen the dream I didn't know I had."
