It's become a tradition in our Crazy family to annually grace the top of our Christmas tree with a beloved figure of pop culture. Last year, we did Baby Stewie from The Family Guy. In years past, we've welcomed to this honored place in our home Napoleon Dynamite, Wile E. Coyote, and Darth Vader.
This year, we debated putting angel wings on Sarah Palin (our national savior, right?), but we decided to hop on the Twilight craze. I raced to Walnut Creek's Target and tried to find two special Twilight Barbies: vampire Edward and werewolf Jacob. We intended to have both on top of our tree, but I could only find Edward. Maybe the Jacob dolls were sold out?
Well, it worked out because my son happens to detest Jacob. He complained that the Jacob sections of the Twilight books were long and tedious and that Jacob whined far too much.
So, there you go: We're with Team Edward in this epic battle. Oh, and what's cool about this Edward doll is that, in certain light, he sparkles!
