Happy December!

Time to change the calendar and gather Advent materials. (And I should probably consider removing the rotting pumpkins from the front porch.)

As we count down to Christmas, we will pull out a new book from our December book stack. Christmas books are my favorite! We will also be adding Advent activities and Christmas crafts to our morning basket!

I really want our focus this Christmas season to be on others and how we can bless those around us with simple gestures. We are introducing the Giving Manger and Kindness Advent to our kids this year. My daughter is a natural gift giver and loves to bless others in the sweetest of ways. Where my boys love to receive ALL THE THINGS… so I’m excited to see how this goes. We will also be using Slow and Sacred Advent to keep Jesus at the center of all the things we do this holiday. I’d love to hear your ideas on how you spread joy and keep the season focused on HIM.  

I hope you enjoy scrolling through this book stack. Most of these books are old favorites, a few are from my childhood*, but several are brand new to us this year!

What is your favorite book to read in December?
