We're here! December 1st! In my eyes, it's officially Christmas time. :)
One of my favorite things on the holiday to-do list has always been choosing the new Disney ornament for the tree. This started a few years ago, and I'm happy to call it a tradition now. Most stores have Disney ornaments available, but for some reason, I love the selection at the Disney Store the best. In my opinion, not even Disneyland ornaments have the kind of charm found in the ones at the Disney Store.
This year, we found Bernard and Miss Bianca with the diamond from The Rescuers! You have no idea how excited I was. It just seemed perfect for the tree, having a light shine through the stone, while the two heroes hung from it. Adorable! I actually left the store without buying it the first time I saw it, but I couldn't get the ornament out of my head. I just had to have it. Worried that it would sell out, I went back for it next week. Bonus: The Disney store tends to have special offers. We got this piece, plus a few others using the 2 for $20 deal.
How fitting is it that this year's pick was The Rescuers, and that's the movie we are currently on? I have to admit, this ornament is my favorite one on the tree. I used to watch this movie as a kid almost weekly, so there are a lot of memories that come with these characters. Bernard and Bianca were very much a part of my childhood; I even used to imitate Bianca's accent. I thought my pick last year was the best so far (Chip N' Dale on a peanut), but this one easily beats it out. Seems like I have a thing for rodents - haha!
