25 Days of Christmas Ornaments -Day 3

Same song, 3rd verse. A little bit shorter and a little bit worse sweeter. This is Sam's ornament from Christmas 2008. It was the first year we had used suckers to keep him quiet during church and his sweet tooth came in that year with a vengeance too.

You'll notice a trend in the ornaments I pick for the kids as we go through the remaining 25 days of Christmas ornaments.....they are for the most part, unbreakable. It is important to me that they survive for a LONG time. I don't think I have to worry about this one. A regular sucker? The kids crush those with their teeth in 5 minutes flat.

  1. I love that ornament! I use suckers in church too--that's the best way to keep 'em quiet!

    I think I'm going to try to figure out how to crochet one of those...

  2. That is adorable. All of you bloggers doing your Christmas ornaments are inspiring me to start putting more thought into my ornaments. I just have plain old bulbs, for the most part. I think I will have to start a tradition and pick up a few meaningful ornaments each year. Thanks for your ideas!

  3. That is too cute! And if Esther figures out how to crochet them, I'm in to buy one...or two...or three. I think Sam needs a cupcake or some kind of cake ornament seems how he really likes that too!

  6. I just found you as I was doing some "blog surfing." I hope you don't mind, but I think I'd like to join your 25 days of Christmas (even if I'm a tad bit late.)

  7. That would be the perfect ornament for E-Man. He's got an addiction to pops. He'll take a lollipop over chocolate any day of the week. :)
