This high shelf in the guest room has childhood memorabilia on it. The two boy dolls I bought when I only had two grandsons, they represent Taylor and Tanner, my older grandsons.
The Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls belonged to my two daughters, as well as the sets of books, which includes Little House on the Prairie (and other Laura Ingalls books), and Nancy Drew books.
The rocking horse was Taylor, then Tanner's when they were small. His name is "Peanut." The reason they named him Peanut is because they won him in a raffle put on by Planter's Peanuts at a drug store! After the boys outgrew Peanut, my daughter was going to get rid of him, but I wouldn't allow it! I brought him home and he has been happy residing atop this shelf for several years!
Peanut is coming out of retirement! He is no longer on the shelf, he is packed in our van, ready for a trip! He is going to SC to live with Caden! Caden will be two-years-old Sunday and is old enough to ride Peanut! I'm loaning Peanut to them, I will get him back someday....hopefully!
Now I have to find another big item to go in the bare spot on the shelf! But I don't have time to do it before we leave Friday morning. We are going on a long vacation, to several different destinations, first stop is to Caden's house for his birthday party! In two weeks, we'll go to Elisabeth's house for her 2nd birthday! In between parties, we are going to Joe's hometown in NY, then to the Poconos in PA!
We are taking our laptop, but it doesn't always work where we are, so I may or may not be able to communicate with you.
Thanks for visiting!
P.S. - Joe also had a good report from his doctor today! PTL!
