Fabulous Friday: A Charlie Brown Christmas

Posted by: Maggie

There is nothing more beautifully Christmasy than A Charlie Brown Christmas, but not even just the movie. The movie is fantastic and funny and clever and heartwarming, and all of that stuff you want a good Christmas movie to be, but that isn’t even why it’s so great.

It’s the soundtrack! Vince Guaraldi is some sort of crazy genius because just a few notes any of that incredible jazz piano in any of these songs and I am suddenly overcome with these amazingly complex feelings of joy and sadness and I don’t know what, but it feels like Christmas and I love it! Here’s a great NPR story you can listen to about Guaraldi and A Charlie Brown Christmas.

p.s. I know, I’ve been a terrible blogger this week, but isn’t the new header great? ok, we’ll talk about it next week, maybe…

Thanksgiving Part One: Breakfast!

Posted by: Maggie

So, I’m sorry about last week, but I’m back and we have a full week of posts ready to go for this week!  And actually, I split up my Thanksgiving photos into four posts, but I don’t want to drag a single holiday through this entire week, so I’ll be double posting today and tomorrow. This should make up for the lack of posts last week, right? Seven whole posts in five days! Pretty exciting stuff! On to Thanksgiving:

We started out Thanksgiving with Josh making a very special holiday bagel run!

Eleanor got a pumpkin bagel.

Josh got some sort of cheese bagel with herby cream cheese. It was really good.

I had an egg bagel with pumpkin cream cheese, delicious, but a little too sweet.

I also had some chai tea and topped it off with whipped cream because we had it in the fridge and we never have whipped cream in the fridge. Oh, and that’s my “I Survived Andrew & Amy’s Wedding” mug, super cute wedding favor right? It may be the only wedding favor that I have ever kept and used. Thanks guys!

We found A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving on YouTube to watch while we had breakfast. Eleanor loved it! Which was a surprise to me since she had no real interest in It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown. She has been asking to watch “Carly Bown” ever since.

Breakfast was followed by some hanging around the house in our pajamas and then a nap for Eleanor and off to my dad’s for an early afternoon dinner.
