Christmas Book Advent

Christmas was such an amazing holiday for our family. We celebrated in so many ways and finally started a tradition that I hope to continue in the years to come.

At the end of November I wrapped 25 books and put in a bucket. Each night Charli would pick one out to unwrap then we would read at bedtime. It was such an excitement for her. A lot of the books were very easy for her to read as well.

It was not in our budget to buy all new books so many of the books we used were from when I was little to $1 books from the Mighty Dollar. She could not tell a difference in any of them but loved our new tradition.

I was so sad to see our book times together go. But am so happy to look back on the funny and cute photos that I captured during it!

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
