I usually plan some sort of extravaganza here on the blog for Christmas, but this year's festivities are quieter and closer to home.
The Doll and Animal Family has wanted to have a movie a night downstairs and so the night that was planned for it was Christmas Eve! But what movie to watch? They finally all agreed they wanted to see "The Boxtrolls"! I knew they would want some popcorn as a treat, so I designed some tiny treat boxes to use, which I also decided to sell in my Etsy shop Velvet Revived. I had fun making several designs. Click here to see them!
Here they are, all settled in, waiting for the lights to dim and the movie to begin!
They are just getting settled in now!
Of course you will recognize Thursday,
Baby Hoobert, Mr. Bear, Hyacinthe,
Teddy, Brownie McNutt,
and Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle.
We welcome with hugs and kisses
the newest member of the family,
Eggsy the Dog, sitting right in front!
Everyone is very excited for the movie to begin!
Now the lights are off and the room is lit
only by the candles in the windows,
the Christmas tree light and,
of course, the light from the TV!
Here are Parsnip, Mr. Mookie & Teddy!
Teddy is excited about the movie, but really,
he's here for the popcorn!
Here are Baby Hoobert, Hyacinthe,
Brownie McNutt and Thursday!!
(Hyacinthe rests her head on Baby Hoobert,
who is distracted, as babies sometimes are.)
And here are Brownie, Thursday, Mr. Bear,
Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle and Eggsy!
They have been looking forward to this
movie and popcorn treat for a while now!
Eggsy is looking forward to trying popcorn for
the first time. We are happy to welcome him
to our little happy family!!
(If you look carefully, you can just see
Mr. Bear's furry head in the lower-right corner.)
Fish, the Boxtroll!
The Doll and Animal Family had such a fun time
watching movies tonight and eating popcorn!!!
We all hope that your Christmas Eve has been
just as nice!

The Doll & Animal Family
wish A Happy Christmas to All
and To All a Good Night!
