So recently I was given the first set of 3 little ornaments and the tree to review. I have to say that I did not have to write a review on this item but I really wanted too. They are not only adorable but this will be a new tradition in my house of creating the 12 days of Christmas! The only reason I used the stock images online of the 1st set is because apparently my phone didn't want to capture the beauty as well.
This is the set that I have and I can't wait to purchase the other sets!
So now that you seen all the cute sets let me tell you a little more how I plan on using this wonderful set to create lasting memories that I hope to pass along with my children. So this year we wanted to do something a little different. We want to start doing a reverse advent calendar. Where we take food items, toiletries, etc and place them in a bag or box. At the end of the days we are going to donate this box to someone in need. We haven't figure out who to have this donation go to yet but we will let the children plan and decide.
So the way that I plan on using this set is to sing the days as we place the ornament on the tree. It might drive my husband nuts, but it will be fun! The children will take turns on the days and place the ornaments on the tree. So this means I need to get my bottom in gear and get the other sets.
So for those that had to think about each ornament, here is what they are:
1 - Partridge in a pear tree
2 - Turtle doves
3 - French hens
4 - Calling birds
5 - Golden rings
6 - Geese a laying
7 - Swans a swimming
8 - Maids a milking
9 - Ladies leaping
10 - Lords a leaping
11 - Pipers piping
12 - Drummers drumming
So hopefully this will start getting you in the mindset of Christmas! even though its a little early.
I want to thank Hallmark for allowing me the opportunity to review this wonderful set! I just now found something else to do with my children at Christmas time.
