Hazel and I recently, accidentally started this new tradition. After lunch we grab a big stack of books and lug them to the front room. We turn on the Christmas tree lights, drape our Christmas blanket over our legs, and start to read. It's a fun little tradition we've started, and I love that Hazel loves it. She has to have the blanket tucked in just right and we have to always bring the train book--it's her favorite.
Today we started a new tradition as well. Sparkle, our Elf, wrapped 12 Christmas books for us to read every night until Christmas is over. Hazel gets to open one book a day-present wise-and we read that book as soon as she unwraps it. Thank you Sparkle!! Was her sweet response this morning after we read the book, she's become very polite on certain occasions. Here is a list of some of the books we will be opening and reading this year.
