This is one of our favorite family traditions. Even with the kids that you would think are too old to enjoy it. I took this photo Sunday night.
The post I wrote years and years ago on my other long ago abandoned blog has disappeared. But basically, every year I wrap up all of our Christmas books and each night the kids get to unwrap one We read it by the candlelight of our Advent wreath while drinking hot cocoa. With marshamallows.
It is a magical way to end each evening. And surprisingly peaceful.
I have a huge assortment of books amassed over the many years that I have been a parent.
Today over at Cool Mom Picks my lovely friends have a list of 12 must-have Christmas books to begin your own collection. There are a few I don’t have that I will grabbing, too!
I am now off to the elementary school where I will be helping 22 kindergarteners make holiday t-shirts. I have heard rumors of fabric paint being involved. I am pretty sure this is why flasks were invented.
