Ornament Countdown 19 and 20 or Wow Where Does The Time Go

I never got a chance to blog yesterday.  Way too much to do and not enough time to do it in.  The one thing that I always find time to do is read.  My daughter recently raved about a book she was reading Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey, so I decided to give it a try.  Its about a childless couple who move to Alaska to grieve their failures in life.  The first night of snow they make a girl out of snow using a scarf and hat that they had.  The next morning the snow child is gone and so is the scarf and the hat.  After that they often see a little blond girl roaming the forest in the brutal cold wearing the hat and the scarf.  The girl disappears each spring but returns in the winter at the first snow storm.  The plot thickens and the author does an excellent job in moving you along in the story.  I loved every single page.

So the story inspired me to create my own snow child ornament.


  1. What a cute ornament. The book sounds good, too, I might have to read it.

  2. I love it, love it, love it!!! Can't wait until it comes to live with me!!

  3. Me too! Since you and Lisa love to read and I got a Kindle for Christmas, can you make me up a "reading list". I can't wait to get started! Thanks.
