Jude has been asking for a Star Wars Christmas tree for weeks now. I was happy to let him know that I could totally make that happen. As many of you know Joe is a Star Wars fanatic, therefore over 80% of the ornaments on our Christmas tree are Hallmark Star Wars Ornaments. Here are a few of our favorite Hallmark Ornaments…
We are slightly addicted to Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments. Now that our family is growing we’ve started the tradition of getting a new ornament each year that defines our family.
When Jude was born in 2008 we got the Very Hungry Caterpillar ornament. I think it might be one of my favorites
Last year we got the In The Groove – Magic Tapper Snoopy Ornament. Jude loves Peanuts and he just adores this ornament. This year, Hallmark sent us the ‘Twas the Month Before Christmas Count Down Ornament. Each day you turn the dial on the bottom to the current date and a new bit of story about the preparation for Christmas is narrated. It’s a great way to build excitement for the coming holiday. (Like kids need help getting excited for Christmas.)
Hallmark also sent us a Storybook Buddy, Watson. Storybook Buddies are awesome, they are plush interactive animals that chime in as you and your little one read key phrases from the coordinating book. Jude loves Watson and his book, The Case of Sneaky Stealer. I also like Watson, he’s cute and has fun commentary that compliments the story in the book. Watson does have a little trouble understanding my 3 year old but he does very well recognizing the key phrases when I say them. Hallmark also has a special Christmas Storybook Buddy, Jingle the Husky Pup.
