Here are some things I've been loving this holiday season.
2) I have also enjoyed reading Christmas books with Swede! Our favorites are: Fa La La by Leslie Patricelli, The Story of Christmas by Thomas Nelson [<--This is a nice version of the traditional Bible story], Peppa's Christmas Wish, and the classic The Night Before Christmas. [<--It looks like the version in the photo below is out of print, which is too bad because that is THE quintessential edition in my opinion!]
3) What list of Christmas favorites would be complete without my favorite holiday movies?!? Tied for first place are Elf and The Family Stone, with honorable mentions going to: A Charlie Brown Christmas, The Holiday, and White Christmas, although I have to admit I do fast-forward through some of the extended dance scenes in that last one.
4) I love love LOVE our Christmas cards this year! They are from Shutterfly.
5) This is the weather forecast for the rest of the week... Looks like we'll have a white Christmas!!! [BTW, I am loving these boots that I mentioned in my November Favorites more and more with every snowstorm!]
One last photo for the road... This is what Swede does when we tell her to close her eyes so the Christmas fairy can put candy in the Advent box. Do you think there's any peeking going on???
I hope you all have a lovely next couple of days with your families and friends!
