Well, I almost made it until Christmas without giving my kids any of their presents. It is so HARD to wait!! On Christmas Eve, we were stuck at home. We’ve had a rough month- our van- which is our vehicle that can transport our kids- was in an accident, my husband is sick for Christmas, and we also got about 3-4 inches of snow on Christmas Eve- not the kind of weather you want to drive your parent’s borrowed van. So, we stayed inside together and I couldn’t resist. I let the boys open some presents early. I decided what we needed were some new BOOKS! It’s amazing how snuggling up and reading can calm hyper kids and help stressed out parents unwind. We’ve had a good Christmas- although it’s been different than what I had expected. We’ve spent a lot of it at home just hanging out together. So, I bet you want to know what we are reading, right?
Here it is:
A Christmas Prayer- read my review here.
The Animals Christmas Carol- read a review from waddleahchaa.com. (I won this book from them).
Precious Moments Storybook Bible- read my review here.
Who’s Hiding Inside? (A present from Grandma and Grandpa– Logan also got a stuffed king cobra to go with the book. Yikes!)
We’ve also been doing puzzles out of this Tonka Jigsaw book.
My blog will probably be pretty low-key this week… but stop by the first week of 2011. I am gearing up for the American Library Association Awards and I will have some of my picks of the best of kid’s lit 2010!!
