Birthday Slumber Party

     This is snagglepuss the teddy.  He is holding a picture of my grandmother holding him in the 1920's.  He has gone from house to house----my mom's----on to mine.  He has kept me company when I was little and snuggled with my children.  He heard the news of a slumber party and pretty much just fainted.
     They seem a little stunned you see.  They have been in the attic for years.  They are much too pretty to be in the attic.  But, nothing has really been happening for them.  When they heard about a slumber party they were very excited, but a little timid.  They got as far as this mattress and posed for a picture.  I told them there were beautiful antique cradles, beds, pillow fights and granola.........they are having second thoughts.  They tell me only if snagglepuss the teddy joins them.  OK let me see what I can do......
      I told them they would meet others and stay up all night talking, giggling, having pillow fights, and they are ready to go.  I have packed them pillows and some quilts to keep them company and they are looking forward to meeting everyone.   Oh, and I told them to wish you the very happiest 47th birthday ever.....and they promised to be good for you.  They even admitted they like granola more than popcorn.........HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!

Oh thank you all!!! I'm so much more happy about being old when I know people from the 1920's are partying with me! I think it is incredible that your bear still has his childhood photo. Snagglepuss.

Snagglepuss is utterly charming. If he ever needs another home, he'll be quite welcome here at the Cottage with me and my teddies. ;-)

I hope your sweet bears and doll don't have to go back in the attic. They are just too precious to be tucked away where no one can see them. Thanks for sharing today!

I love your stories, and your teddy!
Sorry I missed the party on the actual night - unlike Santa, I just couldn't get to everyone's house in one night!
Cheers,
