It's a Charlie Brown Thanksgiving


We've all many obvious and not so obvious things to be thankful for this year. We've let Charlie Brown and his gang inspire our thanks this year!

“I can’t believe it. She must think I’m the most stupid person alive.” –Charlie Brown, as Lucy tries to persuade him to kick the football again

“But Charlie Brown, it’s Thanksgiving….One of the greatest traditions we have is the Thanksgiving Day football game and the biggest, most important tradition of all is the kicking off of the football.” –Lucy, explaining to Charlie Brown why she won’t pull the ball away this time

“Isn’t it peculiar, Charlie Brown, how some traditions just slowly fade away.” –Lucy, after she pulls the football away from Charlie Brown

“Why should I give thanks on Thanksgiving? What have I got to be thankful for? All it does is make more work for us at school.” –Sally

“Isn’t he the cutest thing?” –Sally, gushing over Linus

“I know you probably can’t talk because someone’s listening. We’ll keep these intimate things to ourselves.” –Peppermint Patty to Charlie Brown

“Just save me a drumstick and the neck.” –Peppermint Patty, putting in her order for the dinner she invited herself to

“I think I’m losing control of the whole world.” –Charlie Brown

“You can’t explain anything to Peppermint Patty because you never get to say anything.” –Charlie Brown, explaining to Linus why he’s doomed

“All I can make is cold cereal and maybe toast.” –Charlie Brown on why he can’t cook a Thanksgiving dinner for his friends

“What blockhead cooked all this?” –Peppermint Patty, not at all happy about eating toast and popcorn for Thanksgiving

“Wait a minute, Sir, did he invite you here to dinner? Or did you invite yourself and us too?” –Marcie to Peppermint Patty about her bad behavior

“Why can’t I act right outside of a baseball game?” –Peppermint Patty

“Thanksgiving is more than eating, Chuck…we should just be thankful for being together.” –Marcie

“Let’s not play lover’s games, Chuck.” –Peppermint Patty, after Charlie Brown accepts her apology
and my favorite..."People with large noses are naturally brave." - Peppermint Patty

Love you, McDougalls! Can't wait till you're home. We've already said "wish the McD's were here" about 10 times. Kisses to everyone at the beach!
