light bulb ornament
December 2, 2010
I saw the snow family ornament idea on Handprint and Footprint art last year. (By the way, if you ever need some handprint/footprint inspiration--go there! I am always finding great ideas to copy.)
It's one of those projects that I wanted to do, but never got around to until about 2 days after Christmas...I didn't have any blank ornaments to use, so I just dug through our hall closet until I came across this bulb! I thought it was the perfect shape and would work just as well as an actual ornament.
Now it's a proper ornament and it looks really cute hanging from our tree. I'm glad it survived a year on the kitchen counter because it's really making me smile this holiday season. We'll have to make a new one this year so Lucia can join the snow people!
Snowmen at Christmas by Caralyn Buehner is a fun book we like to read this time of year.
Sadie and the Snowman by Allen Morgan is undoubtably Juliet's favorite snowman book. We read this one all year long.
Of course, you can't beat the classic Frosty the Snowman Little Golden Book--I love this one.
What are you favorite snowmen books?
