A Tribute to A Charlie Brown cookies.

Kids these days have it so easy...back in the olden days, if you missed a Christmas special (that aired ONCE all season), you had to wait until the next year to see it.

I vividly remember the year my mom took us to confession (CONFESSION!!!) and when we got home, I realized we had missed The Grinch.  I was in my early teens and, I hate to admit, I needed to go right back to confession after that realization.  I probably did not honor my mom in that moment.

ANYWAY...A Charlie Brown Christmas was one we watched EVERY year.  And, as I get older, the more I appreciate it.  How can you not love a TV special that combines jazz music, religion, and a sad little tree.

I always love Lucy:
{Notice how I put Lucy next to Schroeder? She would like that. }

Lucy Van Pelt: I know how you feel about all this Christmas business, getting depressed and all that. It happens to me every year. I never get what I really want. I always get a lot of stupid toys or a bicycle or clothes or something like that.
Charlie Brown: What is it you want?
Lucy Van Pelt: Real estate. 

But, for us girls with curls, there was Frieda.  Remember Frieda?

Lucy Van Pelt: You're the innkeeper's wife.
Frieda: Do innkeeper's wives have naturally curly hair?  

 I'll let you in on a little secret...there was an incident with Sally's cookie...
...I *knew* I flooded it just a bit too much, but it looked like it would be ok.   Thirty minutes later, it had run off the side.  Mr. E thinks it looks a little Salvador Dali-esque.  

PS...if you love Charlie Brown & the Peanuts, you must click over to Kristan's Peanuts Thanksgiving cupcakes...they are so cute! 

Who is your favorite Peanuts character? Or what is your favorite moment from A Charlie Brown Christmas?

{psst...Merry Christmas!!!}
