Christmas in July: A Photo Keepsake


If it is late Thursday/early Friday and you are reading this, congratulations! You have made it to the end of the Bloggy Giveaways Carnival! My last giveaway of the week is up for grabs…links for the four other Keepsake Ornaments are at the bottom of this post.

We love photos here at Casa de Crazy. BgK actually photoblogs continuously throughout the day. People call and ask how our trip to the zoo was before we are even home, because they are following us on the Internet. (In a grandma type way, not stalker. At least I think not stalker…)

Anyway, today’s ornament captures that very special first Christmas moment. I remember MAM’s first Christmas–she had five “special” outfits, I think, and mostly we dressed her up and put her in front of Christmas trees everywhere we went. It was still a grown-up Christmas–at four months old, she had no interest in the Christmas Magic or making lists or seeing (or being frightened of) Santa.

This year, I’m sure AFM’s first Christmas will be far less tranquil. For starters, I’m sure he won’t have five special outfits (boys are so different!), and mostly we’ll be chasing his sister, past any Christmas trees we might see, I’m sure.

But it will still be great. And it will be his first Christmas. And we will photograph it. Which finally brings me to today’s ornament–a Baby’s First Christmas Keepsake Ornament. Do you love it? Do you want it for a baby in your life? I do!

To win, please enter one comment, just tell me who’s going to be gifted this ornament–your child, niece, nephew, grandchild, godchild, best friend… can get one extra entry by linking this giveaway to your own blog, just tell me in the comments. US and Canada readers only….and you don’t have to have a blog, just be sure to leave a valid email address!!

  1. A friend of ours just had a baby a couple of weeks ago. I think it would make a nice gift to send to her.

  2. If I win this it will go to my neice. The frame ornament is so cute!!!! First Christmas ornaments are such a wonderful keepsake to look back on each Christmas 🙂 Thanks for offering this!

  3. Hey, thanks for letting me know about this giveaway!! I definitely would love this for our baby due in September. We’ll be celebrating with my family this year at Christmas, so I know it’s going to be crazy with tons of new gifts for the grandchild–especially if we have a girl! My nephew is 6, so it’s been a little while since a baby has been here! 🙂

  4. I’m due Nov. 1 with our 5th baby (4th living) and it would be nice to have a special ornament just for him/her. By the time you’re beyond your 1st or 2nd baby, people don’t tend to make the same fuss over them, and they deserve to feel special too! Thanks for the chance to win.

  5. I would give this to my new niece. She’s the first girl in the next generation, so she is getting extra spoiled. 🙂
