It's the Great Pumpkin!!

As you can imagine, we are HUGE Peanuts fans...especially at Halloween!
I had packed away this board game (an amazing Goodwill find from last year) and Josie and I have played it several times after re-discovering it again. My favorite six-year-old has also been re-arranging my Peanuts gang daily. They sit proudly in our living room on top of our CD cabinet.

Did you know it's there's even an  app for the Great Pumpkin?  I promptly downloaded it last night after the girls went to bed from loudcrow interactive.

It's narrated by Peter Robbins, the original voice of Charlie Brown and you can even create an avatar to go trick-or-treating with Charlie Brown and the gang.  You can also carve your own pumpkin, bob for apples and play Schroeder’s piano.  I had a great time playing with this interactive storybook which includes the dialog and music from the original 1966 animated TV special.   It's well worth the $4.99 (which is something I could easily waste on a specialty coffee and muffin in the morning).


Happy Weekend!

Happy Halloween!

Did not know how much Great Pumpkin was available (especially online!) You've definitely passed along your love of all things Peanuts to the next generation.

Okay, you're having waaaay too much fun there!

Have you made the shadowbox yet? I promise I won't bug you about it, I just can't wait to see what you've done with it.

Hugs,
Meri

Oh Kim, How fun!! We love the Peanuts gang here at our house too, and especially the great pumpkin!! It's so funny, my grandson and I will go over the skit from the Halloween movie, about all they got from Halloween. You know, I got gum, I got a popcorn ball, and then he says I got a rock! So funny, I love it! Wait til my daughter hears about the app!! Can you do it from the computer too! Love your collection. We don't have any of the dolls.

Hugs,
Debbie

Blessings,
