Pretzels and Peanuts

I like to think we do fun stuff all the time in this house - but everything seems especially fun and special at Christmas. We bought these cute little espresso cups to have holiday hot chocolate and eggnog. And I just couldn't resist the holiday themed chocolate covered pretzels.

And though we put so much effort into making the holiday all about Jesus, there is just something so "in the spirit of Christmas" about the Charlie Brown Christmas specials. Can't that music just take you back to your own childhood?! Remember before dvd players and tivos and a hundred cable channels when a children's program coming on in prime time was something really special?? We enjoyed some Charlie Brown (on the tivo!) last night.

  1. I JUST had this conversation with someone the other day. Remember how we would look forward to the one time a year that The Sound of Music or The Wizard of Oz came on? We would scurry around the house during commercials (bathroom and snack breaks) because there was no REWINDING. You had better get back in time or you missed out until the next year!
    Those were the days...makes things more special, I think. Maybe we should pick our favorite family movies and put them on the calendar...ONLY watching them at the appointed time...hummm.
