This one's for you Sweetheart...

My Sweet Hubby loved (and I do mean LOVED!!) the holiday snowmen offered each year by Hallmark. He had to get the new one each and every year and would get the biggest kick out of making them sing/dance or whatever...I can sit here and remember his joy, his wide-eyed smile as he watched them. And it's a great memory!

So when I walked into Hallmark a couple of weeks ago to pick up some cards, it just about broke my heart to see this year's snowman offering there on the shelf. Yet one more thing...I walked out and cried all the way home.

Fast forward a few days and I'm back in Hallmark for gift bags and tissue paper. At the register, I'm once again face to face with - you guessed it. The snowmen. But this time, I decided that instead of leaving the store in tears, I would leave the store smiling. Because that day the snowmen came home with me. Did I say how much pleasure they gave my Sweet Hubby?

So honey - this is for you. How can something so cute make me miss you even more?

"You will have joy and gladness; and many will rejoice at his birth." Luke 1:14

They look great on your mantle. We buy one every year also...McKenna loves them...and I have to admit I think they are pretty darn cute too. :)

It's hard when everywhere you look you are reminded of your Sweet Hubby. I'm glad you decided to get one. Cute.
