25 days of Christmas



Disclaimer:  I was given items in this post for the purpose of review.  I was not paid to write this review.  All opinions are my own,
Like most families we do the advent calendar.  Each year my boys start on December 1st eating one piece of candy a day.  It is fun, but what makes it even better is the new book tradition we started last year.
Wondering what I mean?
I wrap up 25 books in Christmas paper.  And everyday starting December 1st my boys pick a book to unwrap together and then we read it as a family!  It is so much fun!  Not only do they get to unwrap something, it is always exciting to see which book they choose from under the tree.  Also we then get to spend time together as family.  Last year Brandon could read pretty good so we took turns reading the pages.  This year Quinn can read as well (Well he is learning site words so he can recognize those)
So I have a feeling this year will be even more fun the last.

Plus we added several new books to our collection!
