Our Special Countdown To Christmas
Every morning after calendar time Grace & I sit near our Christmas tree and read a book together called Snowbear's Christmas Countdown by Theresa Smythe. The story is about a busy bear who gets ready for Christmas. The book is arranged so that you read one page per day until Christmas, similar to an advent calendar. However, I must admit that we have peeked ahead in the book! Grace & I really enjoy this time together each morning. Grace also loves her advent calendar. Every morning Grace peels off a numbered sticker to place on her calendar. This is a tradition that my Mom started with me once I left home for college and it has now become a special tradition that I love sharing with Grace.
