Most Wonderful DAY of The Year

It’s Christmas Day of course! And it brings our traditional Mommy Christmas Carol for 2011, which is a fun mash-up of Martin-Keller Family memes.

2011: The Most Wonderful DAY of The Year

First of all, the official song isn’t “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year.” That’s a totally different song, and it wouldn’t have made any sense to make an ornament with misfit toys on it. The real 2011 song is “The Most Wonderful Day of the Year,” performed on the Island of Misfit Toys in the ‘Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer’ Christmas special.

Then again, these aren’t the official misfits from the Island of Misfit Toys, but rather the trio from the “Toys Go Out” series of books by Emily Jenkins. And our version is hand-made, recalling our family Christmas gifts to our cousins a few years ago.

And — as an extra bonus — the Toys have a new book (technically a prequel) that just come out. We’re not sure if Mommy knows about, but she does now … because while it won’t hang in the tree, we did include it as part of the gift!

Toss in a nod to our visit to the Nuremburg Toy Museum in Germany this past summer, and you’ve got our traditional 2011 Christmas Carol Ornament.
