I receive this collection of Keepsake ornaments from Hallmark for this review and giveaway. Of course, all opinions shared are my own. #LoveHallmark
After a wonderful Thanksgivvig with my family, I am excited that my tree is up and we are ready for Christmas to arrive.
As a cihld, my mother always seemed so happy around Christmas time. Now that I am older and know more about the details of her life back then, it makes me realize how magical this time of the year must have been for her to seem so happy.
Now that I have my own kids, I try my best to make this time of the year as special for them as my mom made it for me. The tree is up, the house is decorated, we have plans to bake cookies and watch Christmas movies, and this weekend we are all going to have breakfast with santa and to visit our local Hallmark store so my kids can pick out their 2016 ornaments. It’s a family tradition. Last year we went without my husband and he was a little sad (who knew he cared so much). So this year, we are all going. It should be fun.
I’m thrilled that in addition to our annual tradition of picking out new ornaments, the kids have bonus Keepsake ornaments that we received from our friends at Hallmark. Not only are these ornaments absolutely adorable, but they each remind us of a fun experience we had as a family earlier this year.
Disney/Pixar Finding Dory Keepsake Ornament With Sound
We are huge Finding Nemo fans, so we were so excited when found out that Finding Dory was being released earlier this year. I mean, isn’t Dory everyone’s favorite blue fish? I got a a sneak peek and saw the first 20 minutes of the film in May at the Disney Social Media Moms Conference, but we went to see it as a family as soon as the movie was released. We all loved it! That’s what makes this Finding Dory Keepsake Ornament one of our favorites. And with sound (batteries are included), we get to hear Dory share some of her most popular phrases when we hit the magic button. What a special touch!
Star Wars: The Force Awakens Han Solo Keepsake Ornament
So I have to admit that I am not a huge Star Wars fan, but my husband likes Star Wars and so does my son. I also had a great Star Wars experince at Disney earlier this year. I even took a few cpitures with two Storm Troppers. Awesome, right? So the Han Solo Keepsake Ornament definitely reminds me of my trip to Disney and all the magic I experienced there. My son thought it was a pretty cool ornament and was eager to place it on the tree.
Disney Frozen Anna & Elsa Build a Snowman Musical Ornament
I have a little girl who’s 4 years old so we’ve see Frozen about 10 times (maybe more). That said, my daughter was thrilled when we received the Disney Frozen Anna nd Elsa Build a Snowman Musical Ornament. This ornament is fun and cute even before you hit the button and listen to the song. This is a great ornament if you have a Frozen fan in your home who loves to sing along. I think we will be watching Frozen again this weekend.
And once we were (almost) done decoratiing out tree, this is what we’ve got. Now we just have to add a few more Keepsake ornaments after our trip to Hallmark this weekend!
