december daily

I am really making an effort this year to do something "Christmasy" each day in December, and so far we are off to a good start :) I have been busy making lists, buying presents, decorating the house and trying to take some time each night to just relax and enjoy the tree and the stillness of the house after the kiddos have gone to bed.

Tonight I am going to get the Christmas books out and put them in the basket by our fireplace. We started this tradition last year, and I really enjoyed it. Basically, I just fill a basket with books all about Christmas and Winter and Jesus and Family and Traditions and leave them out so that they are easy to get to......that way, we can read a story before bedtime or Sienna can grab one and just sit quietly by the fire and "read."

Last night Johnny and I took the kids, my mom, Jenni and Kaleb to see the drive-through Christmas light park right outside of Canton.....the nicest thing I can say about it is that the kids enjoyed it (sort of). I guess you can't really expect much for $10, but I have to say that we were a tad bit disappointed. Still, we got a lot of good laughs out of the trip and we were all together having a jolly ole' time :)

Love the picture of Grant touching the sweet. My parents still put our childhood Christmas books out by their fireplace each year and we always have such a good time going through them and have now started reading them to our own children. It's such a special tradition and one your children will remember 30 years later!
