Peanuts for Fletcher.

Remember Peanuts? Nope, not the kind you eat – the lovable characters from dear ol’ Charles Schulz!

And, I suppose, when you draw his characters on a sugar cookie… then yes, you CAN eat them! ;-)

My friend Jessica’s little Fletcher was turning 3, and he chose the cutest theme. I couldn’t wait to surprise her with these cookies! And because she didn’t know they were coming, I had to take a guess at which characters & such to make. I knew Snoopy would be important, of course.

And Snoopy hardly goes anywhere without his best buddy, Woodstock. ;-)

I know that red, stripey cookie up there *almost* resembles Snoopy’s doghouse for a moment. It isn’t. That is one of four “easier” cookies I made, and the inspiration for those comes directly from Bridget, over at Bakeat350. You see, she made these cookies a few months back, and I knew they would make perfect fillers for Fletcher’s set of cookies. Thanks for the great idea, Bridget!

I remember reading old Charlie Brown comic books when I was really young. Most of the comic books were about the same size as a typical paperback these days (nothing like the glossy magazine styles found today), and the ones my older sister and I read came from my Uncle James’s old collection. The books were falling apart, and I “restored” them by making new covers out of paper grocery bags. For a summer, my sisters and I added sleeves & library “check-out” cards to each book, too. If you were to walk into my parents’ house right now, you’d still find those re-covered paperbacks, and you could probably still “check” one out, so long as you signed the index card inside. ;-)

Every Sunday, I looked forward to reading the new strip in the colored “funny papers.” I had to wait until my dad was finished with them first, but I usually was scrambling for second dibs! And when I first heard that Charles Schulz was retiring from his penning his comic strip due to health problems, I was so sad to see the end of a part of my childhood.

We were stationed in Alaska at the time, and I made sure to stop at a newsstand on my way to work that cold, February day. I wanted to make sure I had a copy of the last Peanuts comic strip. Hours later, I held that strip & shed a few tears as I heard that Mr. Charles had died the very same day.

“My life has no purpose, no direction, no aim, no meaning, and yet I’m happy. I can’t figure it out. What am I doing right?”
~ Charles M. Schulz

Happy Birthday, sweet Fletcher! Enjoy a happy life, just as Mr. Schulz would want you to have! ♥
