christmas books...a preview

Guess what we're starting tomorrow... a countdown to Christmas!!!! The kids and I are going to be busy reading our way through the stack of goodies. Between the grandparents getting the kids new books, my desire to pick out (at least) one nice hardcover each year, and my general love for books - December is a literary month!!! It's a nice way to stay focused on what's important throughout the season - books, Santa, giving, Jesus, time with family. (not necessarily in that order)

I'll be reviewing at least one book a day - usually more. Please feel free to chime in with "that's my favorite too!!" whenever the mood strikes you. I will be doing other random crafty & cooking posts too - but since a lot of my crafty time is going to be spent making Christmas presents, I won't be able to share as much of my sewing this month as I would like. Don't worry, I'll share after Christmas!!

I'm looking forward to reading through the month with you!

Can't wait!! I love books!!
I'm wondering if some of our favorites are in your pile?...

We adore anything by Jan Brett, she is definitely my favorite children's author. I'm trying to "beef" up our collection of her books.

And our 2 favorite Christmas books that we pull out every year:
Christmas Hearts by Tim Roehl
Mary's First Christmas by Walter Wangerin Jr.
