Every year I try to make a special ornament and buy one or two that are special. Some of our favorite ornaments over the years have come from Hallmark! We have quite a few now and it's hard to pick just one that is THE favorite.
One of my favorite things to do before each Christmas is to find out the new ornaments released by Hallmark and perusing the Dreambook! This year was no exception!! There are so many wonderful ornaments to look at and so many would look wonderful in my home and on my trees! (Yep I usually put up several.)
Here is an ornament that Hallmark generously sent me to try out. I was thrilled to get it and can't wait to hang it on my tree! in fact my whole tree will be of Noah's Arks this year, and many of them are from Hallmark.
I have a thing about Noah's Ark. It is one of my favorite lessons from the Bible and I have been collecting them for years now. Every time I see one it reminds me of how much God loves us and all of His creation! My boys have fond memories of us reading the story from the Bible and helping me hang ornaments on the tree year after year. This little ornament will be an awesome addition to my collection of Noah's Ark ornaments.
There are lots of other ornaments that I really like this year and I wanted to share just a couple more of them with you.
Birch Log Snowman ~ This may sound crazy, but I love snow! My family thinks I'm kind of loopy when it comes to winter, but I like getting snowed in. As a child I have vivid memories of building snowman after snowman and getting cold playing in the snow. We lived in the country and so much of what we had in our home was from our farm and that included birch log decoration. This little guy captures some very special memories of helping my Mom make decorations for our home for the holidays!
The Grinch In Disguise ~ How The Grinch Stole Christmas is my husband's favorite secular Christmas story! He loves reading that story and has every year with our kids. Even now we have to watch the DVD of it each Christmas Eve without fail. He has Grinch t-shirts, several stuffed images and even a fun mug that he keeps out all year long. When I saw this ornament in the Dreambook I knew it would be one I'd have to pick up!
Those are only three of the ornaments I found that would be special to my family. Believe me there are a lot more!! You can pick up your own copy of the 2014 Dreambook at your local Hallmark store or you can click HERE to view it online.
