Results of Our Annual Trek to Hallmark's Keepsake Ornament Premiere

As you kow from my previous post, this past weekend was the Hallmark Keepsake Ornament Premiere.  We look forward to making our way to Concord each summer to choose the first ornament we will each put on our tree for our Trim-A-Tree Day (yes, I am sure it comes as no surprise to you that we make it an all day event!).  Normally, the children each pick their favorite and then I pick one as a surprise for them, so that each have two new ornaments per year.  Well, there was a little issue at Hallmark with a certain special edition ornament I wanted to purchase, but since one of the employees reserved all the special edition ornaments for herself, I wasn't able to purchase one even though I was at the store within ten minutes of it opening and there was only one other customer in the store.  It was an unpleasant way to start our day.  But I digress! 

As we stood in front of the Disney ornaments, my kids were very excited about all the ones they wanted to purchase.  Since none of them could narrow their choices down to just one, well, I gave in.  They each picked two rather than me surprising them with one.  So here are the new editions to our Disney Ornament Collection:


Hayley & Emily both chose Rapunzel, but then Hayley chose Dream Do Come True (Cinderella and plays the song "A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes") and Emily chose Brave Little Tailor:

Pierre & I:

Have you purchased any Hallmark Ornaments this year?  I would love to know which ones!

Cinderella is definitely my favorite! We went to the event, but I had forgotten my coupon so we planned come back. Sadly, we never made it back, so no purchases for me yet :-(
