Last year, I wrote a little bit about our Keepsake Ornament tradition. I've been drooling over the Hallmark Dream Book since I was a teenager and each year, I love to select a few ornaments for our family Christmas tree.
I'm supposed to only be choosing one ornament to represent our family each year, but I have yet to actually get my list down to one. This year (again), I found two that I wanted to represent the memories we've made this year!
Family Ornament 1 - Snow Angel Team. This one is too perfect - Lincoln and Addie have spent half the year pretending to be Captain Barnacles and Peso from the Octonauts. A polar bear and a penguin are perfect to remind me of 2014 in years to come.
Family Ornament 2 - Cozy Country Church. We've been church hopping for what feels like years now, but I think this year we have finally found the place we belong. That's such a great feeling! I feel like an ornament to commemorate this milestone is perfect.
Lincoln's Ornament - Mickey's Fire Brigade. Much to my chagrin, Lincoln seems to be outgrowing his truck obsession, at least to some degree. I never dreamed how much I would miss finding little cars stashed all over my entire house. But at the beginning of 2014, he still loved them and we had a fun firetruck birthday party for him. The fire-fighting Mickey perfectly describes the first half of Lincoln's 2014.
Addie's Ornament -The Doc Is In. Addie doesn't have a lovey that she carries around with her, but her Doc McStuffins doll has definitely been the leading contender for such a position (we even bought a second one as a backup). She loves Doc and all her little toy friends, so this seemed like a great fit for her this year.
Hallmark graciously offered to send me one of the ornaments from my list this year - and they're giving one away to one of you, as well! Keep reading for details on how you can win.
We were sent the Cozy Country Church Keepsake Ornament, and we're so excited for it to have a place on our tree this year. The snow-capped roof glistens as the little church rests in the branches of our Christmas tree. It measures 3.19" W x 4.38" H x 2.44" D.
My kids love to press the small button on the side to hear a choir sing a snippet of O Holy Night, which is one of my favorite Christmas carols.
