illustration friday 9/24/10~old fashioned

this is my contribution to this week's i.f theme of 'old fashioned'. it's called 'sneakin' a peek'.
i can't help but remember being a little kid and sneaking downstairs with my brother EARLY on christmas morning (like we actually slept right?;)) and taking a peek to see what santa claus had bought us. the excitment, joy, anticipation and pure delight at the thought of all our toys that would hopefully be waiting for us underneath of our tree. the tree that my mom and dad used to decorate with those BIG GAUDY colored bulbs (as you can see today i prefer white lights;))! bobby (although today he prefers 'rob') and i used to wear those pj's with the feet and pretend to 'skate' around on our kitchen floors...much to my parent's dismay;)
ahhh...those were the good old days...
