Happy Day Kiddos! I don't know how most of you are feeling this Holiday Season. I have heard mixed reviews about the whole Octonovemcember thing. Plenty of people were complaining about how the push for the holidays started way too early. I do know that our family is getting into the holiday spirit and have since The Boog's 5th birthday in October. Favorite Ornaments have made their way on to the tree and The Boog and I have made paper chains to cover our entire living room! Another holiday staple of ours, and I'm sure many will agree, is Charlie Brown. I always buy a Peanuts book whenever I see one. This one, in particular, has been in my collection for a few years now and I have just never gotten around to posting about it.
Hearing about those partridges and pear trees until you're ready to lose your mind.
Going over the hills and through the woods to grandmother's house
....except she's moved to an apartment.
When people say nice things to you who otherwise don't even know you're alive.
When you hug your little brother.
Another box of candied fruit from your Aunt Agnes in California.
Getting all those cards from people you never sent any to.
Losing your mother downtown in a crowded store.
Wishing you had gotten this stupid present gift wrapped.
A box of tree ornaments that have become part of the family.
Suggesting we decorate the tree with strings of popcorn and cranberries like in the old days, but we never do it.
Waiting for the grown ups to finish eating so we can open the presents.
There are a few people I know who are big fans of A Charlie Brown's Christmas so I decided to knit each of them a very special ornament.....
"It just needs a little love...."
This is a picture of the one I made for our tree. One down 3 more to go!
