Christmas in July

So, it's July, and I've already started thinking about Christmas and the holiday. It will be the first year that our little family will be staying in our new home, and we'll be celebrating Christmas here with my parents. Unfortunately, my sister and brother in law will be in Australia with his family, so we will be missing them, but I know that we will enjoy this year.

Weston is getting old enough to enjoy and love the holidays, and I can't wait to do fun things and pick out a Christmas tree and go to the Christmas Eve service at church. I'm looking forward to making Christmas Eve dinner and making cookies for Santa.

One of the traditions that I'm hoping to start with our children this year is wrapping up books for each day leading up to Christmas and letting them choose a book and read one each night. We don't have enough Christmas books to wrap up yet, so I'm on the hunt for Christmas book ideas/suggestions.

Anyone have ideas for Christmas books that children would love?

  1. They might be a little young for it, but The Jolly Postman is precious! Also try Who Will Guide My Sleigh Tonight, God Gave Us Christmas, Olive the Other Reindeer, Duck and Goose:It's Time for Christmas, It's Christmas David.

    I could go on and on! Let me know if you want any more suggestions :)
