Isn't this the cutest little Snow Baby? I began buying one of these SnowBabies each year for my granddaughter (Plumpkin) who is now four years old. I decided I needed to take pictures of each one because I already forgot which ones I bought! This little sweetie is for 2009! I don't think she cares that much at age four, but hopefully some day she will enjoy having them.
And I found this little Czech bird at an antique store when we were in Bird-In-Hand two weeks ago. According to my husband, everybody's grandmother had these. Mine did, and apparently his did too. I had my grandmother's bird many years ago, but gave it to my friend because her grandmother was from Czechoslovakia. Now I am happy to have this one. They must have made a ton of these, but aren't they sweet! And from Bird-In-Hand, PA!

I think buying a snowbaby for your granddaughter every year is great. She will appreciate it more and more as she gets older. When she becomes a teenager and rolls her eyes at them, don't let that stop you. She will treasure them later! LOL

I love bird figurines. Yours is very sweet.
