It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown!


We love that show here in our house. We have it on Video and DVD. Every year they show it on tv (I think ABC owns the rights now) but they always edit it for time and cut out the great part with snoopy.

Tater-tot watched it 3 times in a row on Monday, once on Tuesday... we skipped Wednesday but I'm sure we'll watch it again tonight!

He calls pathetic Charlie Brown in his ghost costume with all the eye holes in the wrong places "the polka-dotted ghost" and thinks the repetitive "I got a rock" statement is just funny...

He doesn't get the eternal underdog, loser appeal of Charlie Brown... him laughing at the polka-dotted ghost makes me laugh at it... more than I have since I was a kid.

That makes me even more excited to show him the Charlie Brown Thanksgiving and Christmas shows this year.

Tomorrow we'll be going to the 'boofest' on the town square of the town I work in... Copper's off duty and I doubt Tater-tot will understand why daddy's not wearing HIS police officer "costume."

We keep telling him that if its what you really do for a living its a uniform, not a costume...

I, will of course, be Velma from Scooby Doo. (Jinkies). I'll be sure to enter the wide world of photo uploads next week.

Does it make me a terrible mom to say my kids have never seen any of them?

I am ashamed to say that I did not watch this with my kids. I had a conflict. I put the kids' to bed early and I watched The Biggest Loser....while eating Halloween Candy.

I am going to rectify the situation right now! They do sell this somewhere right?

Since Backyardigan's Live tour has been cancelled...I have some extra money burning a hole in my pocket!
