Christmas Idea!!

My friend, Theresa, told me about an idea her niece posted on her blog, Our Little Pebbles.  I thought it was such a fabulous idea I asked to re-post it here so I could share it with all of you.

Thank you, Sadie!!

Original Post:  Christmas Countdown With Books

Sadie wrapped 24 Christmas-themed children's picture books, put them under the tree in her living room, and each night before Christmas, her children unwrap a book and they all read it together.

I just love this idea!

Sadie gives more details on the books she chose, where she found those adorable gift tags and what she does with them after the kids open the gifts, so go check out her original post!!

Since it's only December 4th, I don't think it's too late to start this special countdown...or maybe if you want to plan ahead for next year, you can begin collecting books.

Christmas AND Books!!!!
What could be better than that?

A very special Thank You and Merry Christmas to Pastor Sadie and your family!

That is a wonderful idea! Hmmm.... no kids at home....

BUT - I could give a book away a day to someone I know who does have kids.

Thank you so much for linking my blog. My kids already get so excited each night when they get to open the book and we read it in front of the Christmas tree.

I'm glad others can get some use as well.

This is such a neat idea! If my kids were smaller, I would definitely be doing this, but I will be passing it on to some other moms that I know with younger children! Great idea! Thanks for sharing!
