Favorite Christmas angels

I've admired Jim Shore angels for some time and finally bought one for myself.  This one is "Quiet Peace," dated  2008.  I like the simplicity of the stars on the quilted skirt and I appreciate the message at this time of year.  This my second favorite Christmas angel.

Our #1 Christmas angel is pictured on the left, our granddaughter Madelyn.  She's wearing her Christmas dress, standing beside her first Christmas tree in Heidelberg, and hugging her new favorite friend, Clarice (the friend of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer). 

Maddie helped decorate their Christmas tree this year, and she's been leaving the ornaments in place.  That's admirable for a 2-1/3-year-old girl. She's talked to us about Santa Claus, she's sung Frosty the Snowman for us, and we've seen a picture of her beside their first snowman of the season (decorated with peanut M&M's).

Our Christmas Day greetings to DS, DIL, and Maddie will be via computer video call this year, as they'll be in Heidelberg and we'll be in Iowa.  I'm sure we'll hear an excited story from Maddie about Santa Claus making a visit to their home. 
Enjoy your Christmas angels!

Your #1 angel is certainly the best!
I volunteer in Kindergarten and yesterday we were talking about angels and I asked the group if they were angels and one little (wild) boy looked at me quite shocked and said "No!", but one very sweet girl told me that her grandparents called her a little angel. They are all such angels! Have a wonderful Christmas!♥

Your angels are so different and special, LOL! Glad you'll be able to see #1 angel "live", even if you can't pick her up and squeeze her. Love the Jim Shore angel with the red stars. She is very serene.
