I always love to get the Christmas books out each year. Along with the pulling out all of the the Christmas music it is one of my favorite parts of the season. I seriously am one of Border's biggest customers. You think I'm kidding.
Each year as the boys get older I find it a bit harder to get them to grab a book and settle in for a quick read in the evernings. With the exception of Mo. I believe he will snuggle with his mother until he's twenty. But don't tell his skateboard buddies.
This year I decided to make it a little more interesting by wrapping each book. Most of the books are the old favorite's we have read for many years but with this little twist and the idea of not knowing what book you'll be reading until you unwrap it is so much fun. Even for me.
I did purchase a few new books for an added surprise but the majority are old and worn. Even so, the boys are really loving this idea.
Morgan pulled the first one today. Excitement all around for who knew what book it would be.
Today's selection a short but a fun favorite.
The last book to be read on Christmas Eve will be The Night Before Christmas. That particular book is wrapped in different paper to indicate not to choose it until that night.
Looking forward to snuggling in our favorite chair all season. Reading all our favorites. (and yes as of this year all three of us can fit in it together-no joking)
There is still time to do this little holiday project. All you need is some wrapping paper a basket and of course your favorite books.
