Pre-Advent Prep:  The Books

, ,

  One of my favorite Advent traditions involves our giant stack of Advent and Christmas books.  I individually wrap all our books for this season, putting a date on the outside to coordinate with any appropriate feast.  Each day one of the kids opens a present.  A present that didn’t cost anything! We have enough books […]

Pre-Advent Prep: The List

  This is going to sound crazy.  I try to be all ready for Christmas before Thanksgiving. Advent starts on November 27th this year.  That means by November 27th, I actually want to have all my critical prep work done.  It makes November a bit crammed– but it pays off once December rolls around.   In […]

Library Love {7}

When Christina from a gentle mother asked if I’d be willing to take over setting up the Tuesday Library Haul link up, I was beyond excited.  From attending Story Hour at the library as a child to working as a library aide during high school and college, I love all things biblioteca. Although the home […]
