What could be more fun for a family of book lovers than counting down the days with a surprise Christmas story each night?
What with the avalanche of presents our children receive on the 25th -- the grandparents cannot be stopped -- we never go all out on an advent calendar. Then I spotted a Christmas Book Advent Calender on ohdeedoh's Advent Calendar Roundup via Babyccino.
Taking care to hide all our holiday books at the beginning of November, I was absolutely giddy with the cleverness of me. All that snuggle time and the calendar would cost nothing! Ah, but pride goeth before the fall.
It turns out the cleverness of me hid one pile a little too well and the books have yet to be recovered. This is the season of miracles though and a quick trip to the local Salvation Army by myself and a finer Neiner yielded our final holiday reads and we were good to go...again.
