This year, we started another new tradition, a Christmas Book Advent Calendar. It's sort of like our version of the 12 Days of Christmas. Since Gracie had quite a few Christmas books from the past few years, I wrapped her old ones and a few new ones, and she gets to open one each night before bed. Then, we read a new Christmas story every night.
As the year's go on, we might get enough to do it right from December 1st. We'll see.
Here's Gracie's little reading nook, and her teetering stack of Christmas books.
Choosing is a very tough decision sometimes.
She picked a new one. I got this little set thinking it would cover half the month, but each book is like a page of the story, so she lucked out and got the whole set today!
Here she is doing a little jig with her new books.
