the personality of the ornaments

Greetings from snowy Rhode Island! Saturday we took down our Christmas tree. My boys turned the somewhat daunting task into a game by sorting out their favorite ornaments. I did the same and realized that I am gathering quite a cute collection of little snowmen. Being a blogger, of course I had to take a quick break to snap some photos!

It's funny because looking at each snowman individually in these pictures, they seem to have their own personalities. This guy above looks very friendly: "Good to meet'cha!"

(Okay, I hope I am not sounding too crazy. Maybe I should've waited to do this post until after breakfast!)

mild mannered and welcoming

sweet and bashful

a nice kid


shy and would sound like winnie-the-pooh

a bit goofy but funny

Okay, time to eat! xo

they are so cute what a great collection - if I were a snowman I would hang out with 'Mild Mannered' and 'Shy' I think we would all get on super well! Oh and 'goofy' too because he is great for a giggle.

That's so funny Elyse!! You can see their little personalities (; I also have a lot of the snowmen, thay are to sweet to pass up when I see them in the stores. I hope you have a great week!

and aren't they precious!!! I hate putting all my favorite ornaments away. It is somewhat sad. So, many stay out all year....especially the glittery ones. :)

I love little snowman ornaments, too. I also have the sparkly one in the middle picture - were those Martha Stewart? I like mine out through January so they can be winter ornaments as well as Christmas ones. -- Michele
