advent recp {pt. 3}

We're getting so close to Christmas!  This countdown has been super fun, especially for me.  I think Natalie's favorite part is ripping the paper off the books each night, but she has only been showing mild interest in actually sitting through a full reading of most of them.  I know that next year this tradition will be even more fun!

Night 12:  The Berenstain Bears Trim the Tree

Night 13:  Willie: the Moose Who Saved Christmas

Night 14 I forgot to take pictures, but the book was Santa's Book of Names.

Night 15:  The Snowman, gifted by Jay & Amelia

Night 16:  How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Night 17:  Saturday our activity was to check out the Christmas lights around town.  So fun!

Night 18:  We made thumbprint Christmas cards, like this "string of lights" one that Natalie gave to her daddy.  We also received a surprise package in the mail this week from Auntie Lindsay, and added it to our rotation:  The Jolly Christmas Postman.  Such a good one!


  1. Nice articles. I'm just blogwalking and very happy to stop here. And also give you some comment and following your blog here.

  2. I totally am doing this advent book thing next year! I've got a good start on books so far but the idea of wrapping them kills me (I HAAAATE wrapping LOL)

    And those thumb print cards? Totally doing that yet this week!

    I swear, you are brilliant when it comes to creating or finding these ideas!

  3. I love love loved the Jolly Postman books as a kid! Well done Lindsay!

    Ha, I like Mike's card.
