Just what is a Woogie anyway?

I have had forever written on this blog that “woogies” are quilts. And they are! At least in this household!

But more specifically, we have The Woogie:

It is my husband’s woogie. He so named it the woogie after the kid’s blanket in the movie Mr. Mom, although upon watching we determined that the blanket in the movie is something slightly different.  He only begrudgingly lets anyone else use it.

He will share it with the girls though.

The Woogie was my first ever Christmas gift to my husband back in 2000.  I must admit I somewhat feared giving him the woogie.  If he hadn’t liked it, then that might have been the end of our relationship! I don’t think I could have taken the rejection of something I made for him!  But he loves it and cuddles with it nightly, and insists it is the best gift I have ever given him.  And he doesn’t want any other woogies or blankets — they are all cheap seconds to his woogie.


By the way, doesn’t my husband look ODD in this photo of him with his woogie???  This scanned photo is from our first Christmas.  Just a few months after we met, he came and spent the holiday with my family.  And so he decided he needed to shave his goatee before meeting them so he’d be nice and clean-cut.  I swear I didn’t recognize the man I brought over!

That’s been the only time he’s been clean-shaven since I met him.  Although, 2.5 years later, he did say he was going to shave it for our wedding!  Luckily he voiced that idea and I quickly nixed it — I needed to recognize the guy at the end of the aisle!

Oh, and as I’ve done in the past, I made a baby quilt out of the scraps back in 2001.  It was given to one of my husband’s friends to welcome their new little boy:
