  1. John Stamos was the first narrator I’ve ever seen host the Candelight Processional, and he was AMAZING!!! By far the one I compare all other narrators to…..of course I’ve never seen NPH, so I could be wrong :)

  2. Both of them are fabulous additions to the line-up! We’ll just miss Robby Benson which makes me sick. He’ll be there 11/28 and we leave 11/27. Waaaahhh!! :-(
