Sketchabilities has revealed its latest sketch, #60, and it’s a great one! Be sure to head over to the site to grab the sketch, then create something and link it up! :)

Here’s my Design Team layout inspired by the sketch.

Who-ville_Daquila-Pardo

Don't Phil and I look like little Whos on this Christmas morning in 1969?

Aren’t these photos darling? It’s Phil and me on Christmas morning 1969. With our tousled hair and footie pajamas, we are having a great time opening and trying out the gifts Santa left beneath the tree. The details in these photos that really make me smile are the four stockings hanging in the background that Mom made for us, the shot of me blowing on my little plastic horn (my pantooker!) and my big gift that year—my “green ‘tove” with the matching dishes set. So sweet!

I hope you’ll play along with this sketch. And while you do, perhaps you’ll want to hum a little of this:

Fah Who foraze, Dah Who doraze
Welcome, Christmas, come this way
Fah Who foraze, Dah Who doraze
Welcome, Christmas, Christmas Day
Welcome, Welcome
Fah Who Rah Moos
Welcome, Welcome
Dah Who Dah Moos
Christmas Day is in our grasp
So long as we have hands to clasp

Fah Who foraze, Dah Who doraze
Welcome, Christmas, bring your cheer
Fah Who foraze, Dah Who doraze
Welcome, all Whos far and near

NOTE: The movie’s finale ends here, but there are more lyrics in the album version.
Welcome, Welcome
Fah Who Rah Moos
Welcome, Welcome
Dah Who Dah Moos
Christmas Day will always be
Just so long as we have we
Fah Who foraze, Dah Who doraze
Welcome, Christmas, come this way
Fah Who foraze, Dah Who doraze
Welcome, Christmas, Christmas Day

Thanks, Michelle! I was pretty excited about how well those Jillibean Soup papers went with my vintage photos. It’s fun when that works out, isn’t it?
