25 Days of Christmas: Story Time

DSC_3601 watermarked

My kiddos LOVE books. It took Parker awhile to be able to sit down and listen to a whole story. Now he can’t seem to get enough of them at night. I love the idea of reading a different Christmas story each night leading up to Christmas Eve when Rob would read The Soldiers Night Before Christmas and I would read The Night Before Christmas. My Dad has read it every Christmas Eve to my sister and I, even when I wasn’t there.

Books don’t come cheap so I got creative when looking for 24 books. I found many of them at a local second hand book store and the rest were from consignment sales. On average I paid about 75% off retail value.

Some of my favorites in the collection are:

The Snowy Day
If You Take A Mouse To The Movies
Santa’s Toy Shop
Who’s Getting Ready For Christmas
Penguin And The Mystery Footprints
Corduroy’s Christmas
I Spy Little Christmas
The Biggest, Most Beautiful Christmas Tree
Getting Ready For Christmas
Santa’s Littlest Helper Travels the World

Next year I was thinking of wrapping each story so Parker and Caity wouldn’t know which one they were choosing and it was more of a surprise. By then they will also be more efficient at opening wrapped items, right now it takes quite awhile.
