A Charlie Brown Christmas

Given my son's Thanksgiving Charlie Brown photo shoot last month and Snoopy's lit up dog house on my front porch, I've obviously been in a Peanuts kind of mood. With that in mind, does this look at all familiar?

Ok, so it's not an exact replica... That would have required venturing further than my back yard, but it's my version of a Charlie Brown Christmas tree. I think it's scrawny enough to pass muster.

I hung ornaments on it until it started listing dangerously to one side. The Santa baby spoon is actually holding it in place... It fell over a few times and as I watched the ornaments scatter, I made a face similar to this:.

I feel your pain, Charlie Brown.

So, that's my mini Christmas tree. It's gracing my kitchen table and, as long as it stays upright, it makes me happy. It's chillin' like a villain with it's cohort - the chocolate covered pretzels. I think they are plotting to conquer the kitchen together.

And, since we have a real Charlie Brown in residence... I couldn't resist ;).

 Oh Joseph... Of all the Charlie Browns in the world, you're the Charlie Browniest.

Of course, we couldn't leave out Snoopy & Woodstock.


 Even if Snoopy is a suspicious character. He's pretending to sleep right now, but you know he was up to mischief last night. Shooting down enemy planes from the top of his dog house.

You're a good man, Charlie Brown.

Merry Christmas everyone! Tomorrow is Christmas Eve. SO EXCITED!


  1. I love the Charlie Brown Christmas Tree. And the look of "I want to destroy that" in Joseph's eyes. :)
