As we all know I had a difficult time getting into the swing of Christmas this year.
I think it is true "the older I get, the slower I go" fits well here.
My plan this year is to have the Christmas Spirit in my heart all year long!
As I was putting the ornaments away I came to one of my favorites and it brought back so many memories that I thought I would share it with you.
My daughter was in kindergarten and my son was in pre-school at the time.
He was so proud to bring home this cute teddy bear ginger ornament he had made. While he was proudly showing me what he had learned in school that day my daughter walked into the room and proceeded to bite off the leg of the ginger. This almost caused my son to come un-done.
How could this be happening...his first ornament for the tree and his sister has taken a bite out of it.
After calming him down we did a bit of glue and band aid surgery on the little guy.
Looking back I am not sure what was funnier the look on my daughter's face at the taste of the "cookie" or the sear desperation on my son's face at the demise of the teddy.
I LOVE this ornament!!
Now with the Spirit of Christmas running through my veins (better late then never) I will be having an ornament giveaway.
Because it has been so cold and snowy here, you could insert "Welcome"..snow, ice, below zero temps, cold, etc.with this ornament!
This is also one of my favorite ornaments:
This ornament is a rust cutout shape of a snowman holding a heart and with a Welcome banner on the top. It is then all wired together with rusty wire. It measures 6 x 7 inches.
This is a design by Donna Malone and Kenna Reynolds and has been adapted to fit this size ornament. Glitter paint has been applied to the welcome banner and the stars. It has been sprayed with a non-toxic finishing coat.
To enter this giveaway leave a comment on this post only.
Open to USA and Canadian friends...sorry postage is so high to ship to other friends.
Leave a way for me to contact you if you do not do blogger.
A name will be drawn on January 14, next Monday.
Thank you for reading about my favorite ornament and good luck on winning this one!
