RAISIN PIG??? Yes, Raisin Pig.
It's a bit of a long story, but please try to get through it....I think it's pretty funny!
When I was little, my family had 2 trees, a real tree that my parents decorated with the pretty red and white theme with the snowflakes my mom crocheted, and a small artificial tree that my sister and I decorated with all the ornaments we made in school and at home.
When my sister and I got older we wanted our tree to be prettier, and so we limited the ornaments to anything that was red green or white. This worked pretty well and we bought some pretty gold ribbon to put on it too.
There was however one exception to our pretty theme....
Ugly little thing, isn't he???
Well, I made this little guy when I was in grade 1 (so that's 18 years ago now!) and I was sooo proud of him. Why I made a pig for a Christmas ornament, who knows? I'm sure those of you with 6 year olds aren't surprised though!
If you look closely, he has little raisins for eyes, a mouth, and his snout holes. Hence the name raisin pig!
My sister HATES Raisin pig. Which makes me love him all that much more. Again, take a close look...he's missing his ears (he used to have some!)
He has suffered a few injuries in the past 18 years, but he still makes it on the tree every year and I have no intention of that ever changing! lol
Look, he's even on our beautifully decorated red and white tree....
Did you find him??
Here, I'll help!
I can't wait for my sister to get "home" for Christmas to fight over raisin pig!! lol
