Is There Anything Better?

Is there anything as comforting as a brand new BIG box or Crayola Crayons? My grandmother sent these to my son the other day; and knowing they would soon be broken in half and all over the house; I took this picture. We spent some time just smelling the box and inspecting each color. Funny how nothing else smells like a box of Crayola's... what a wonderful memory!

My favorite color is still "Cornflower"; so soft and light... it was always the first color in my box to need a peel. Anderson's favorite color is "Macaroni and Cheese"... I wonder why? (*wink*)

Isn't it good to know that the Crayola think tank is still dreaming up NEW colors! Read some fun Crayola Color history HERE.

Crayola crayons do bring back wonderful memeories. My daugther who is almost 16 asked for a box for Christmas. It got my Husband and I talking and remembering getting our first box of crayons...funny how we all still remember our crayons!

I so totally agree.... I always loved a brand new box of crayons as a kid... and then as my kids were young.... now no one around here colours with crayons....

I'm so glad I'm not the only Crayon sniffer out there! I used to love the first day of school when we got to bring our brand new box of crayons!! I remember my mom used to say, well you can use the ones from last year and I would literally tear up and say no I have to have new ones!!

Sarah,
You're a nicer mom than I am because I take the new crayons and hide them! My 4 year old wants to know when he gets to use the box instead of the tupperware container of broken crayons :-)
