    I can only see the heart one, and I LOVE it! Makes me feel all Christmassy!

    Very cute. I was able to take the magnets off of 2nd refrigerator when youngest Grandson was too old to play with them. Was glad to see them go after about 20 yrs. having them around.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    What a treat to put up every year. Is there a surprise in the little boxes? I made a quilted advent calendar and use an Elf on the Shelf ornament to hop from pocket to pocket.
