It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown - Halloween Decorations


As I was flipping through my blog, I realized that somehow I had forgotten to post about Halloween.  This is a crime!!!  How could I have forgotten my favorite holiday?!  This Halloween was especially great.  I got to wear a costume that I have ALWAYS wanted to wear (a post about that to come later).  I am particularly proud of how my yard decorations turned out.  The theme this year was: It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown.  Who doesn't love Charlie Brown?  This movie is a classic!

Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Dinner



Charlie Brown and Thanksgiving go hand-in-hand.  (Actually, I like watching Charlie Brown on ANY holiday.)  Bud is especially into Snoopy.  He laughs his head off when Snoopy is chasing the lawn chair.  The day before Thanksgiving I decided to have a nice, laid-back Charlie Brown Thanksgiving dinner with my family.


Here's the set-up (complete with Snoopy).  We ate the same foods that Charlie Brown ate with his friends in the movie: popcorn, toast, pretzels, ice cream, and jelly beans.  I also made little pilgrim hats for all of us to wear to dinner.


Bud enjoyed everything about this meal.  What kid wouldn't?!  As an adult, it definitely makes you appreciate a REAL Thanksgiving dinner.


Princess looking cute and Pilgrim-y.  I found directions to make the girl pilgrim hats HERE.


Snoopy approves.
