MerryCarey, regarding the Time Life Book of Christmas. On the book I got at the library does state 1987 inside. The library also stamped inside the book that it was shelved on January 7, 1988 so I think it is from 1987 and not a later release.

Just curious if you know if they used 2 different covers or I don't have the right one? Sorry, I'm not too bright when it comes to books being released and not sure how that all works.

Trying to brainstorm this one for those looking for this book because CM3 only found the copy I have. Not that this is super urgent but inquiry minds want to know.
I can't swear to this, but ...

From what I've seen, there seem to be two editions of the 1987 book, with the same contents but with different covers. One is the one I have (white cover with Santa Claus, no dust cover), and the other one (red cover with a collage, including the Santa from the white cover). I think they have the same contents. I saw a listing for the red one on eBay that had photos of the inside of the book, and the contents in the photo were all in the white one.

Online searches for the 1987 edition(s) sometimes mention "with songbook." My book doesn't have a separate songbook---but I got it used, so the songbook may have been lost. Maybe one edition came with a songbook and one didn't?

Bottom line is: I think the 1987 Time-Life Book of Christmas came with two different covers, but the same contents.

If anyone REALLY wants to pursue this, I'll scan the contents page(s) of my book, and someone with the red version can compare it with theirs. Then we'll know for sure!

Just getting in from the gym and swinging by the grocery to get sloppy joe mix and stuff to make salad tonight. I am not too fond of sloppy joe's so I am going to eat a salad which of course will have so much cheese(mexican style and goat)ham,olives,real bacon,hot sause,creamy ceascar dressing that it will more than likely be my whole 2000 calories for the day and thus making the trip to the gym null and void. But I have finally got my appetite back and have relaxed and so I am ready to eat eat eat!!! Hope everyone's monday is going good. My inlaws are going to be here until saturday and my mom and sister's are flying in thursday night so our 2 familes will have a chance to meet for the first time. I can't wait until my dad can travel.... this past Christmas before the stroke and car accident they were planning on coming to my home for christmas but that gives us more to look forward to again this year at Christmas!!!

Okay, I think we are safe to say anyone looking for the book can get either cover and it should be the same. =)

I will be more than happy to make comparisons of our books if anyone wants to be sure of it.

I am on another break. Right now I am getting rid of some clutter out of my room. I really would like to re-arrange the furniture in here. We have lived in this house for 8 years and the furniture is still in the same place! We have tried to change it around but the room is just set up weird. It's a converted garage but not the full garage is our room, they split it up in 2 parts. The small room they made out of it is our office and then the rest of it is our room. Where the closet is makes it impossible to put the bed anywhere else. We can't put it in front of our window because of the air conditioner being there. I need a change in here!!! In the meantime I just got clear some stuff out. =)

Good afternoon, MMC! Hope you're all having a great day! I was sooo tired today when I got home. I got a wonderful day of sleep, thank goodness! I can tell DH had a stressful day! He just went to shower for work and he said that he just put EA down for her second nap of her day. She NEVER naps twice anymore. I think someone is being bad today...

Anyway, anything new with anyone? Nothing new here. DH goes to work here at 4, then I work again tonight, so my mom is watching the kids for us. Thank God for grandparents!

Well, I am going to get caught up on the countdown! Hope all is well with everyone.

Dawg - Hope the first night with the baby at home (I am thinking it was with the way you were posting), went well!

Losing stuff is okay - I just worry that she has no sense of danger and that she doesn't seem to learn from her mistakes. I'm just really thankful she didn't get hurt this time! Spunky indeed - her new nickname: The Palminator
