I have really been trying to plan ahead and think about ways to make the holiday season special for them, not only things that they would like on Christmas morning, but also some fun traditions that we can do as a family. A couple years back I started the advent calendar with Waverly (you can see the first year’s here), and plan to still do that with both girls, with activities planned that we can do each day or special little treats for them, I know they will love it! This year I am also going to combine it with a few new books, on the last 12 days before Christmas they will get to unwrap a new book that we will read that night. They both love books so much, it’s one thing that they really have in common right now and it’s also the one thing I never, ever feel guilty about buying!!! I have rounded up some of my favorites, a few that we already have and a few others that I have picked up for the 12 days.
|This is Sadie – I Had A Favorite Dress – Florabelle – Emma – I’m A Big Sister – Flora The Flamingo – Olivia|
That big sister book will forever be one of Waverly’s favorites, she still loves to read it most nights and especially likes to read any of her books to Avalon! Also have to share these jams, they have been one of our favorites for a couple years now and would be perfect for a boy or a girl. We live for matching pajamas around here, literally every single night. Waverly won’t have it any other way. 😉
What a great list!
We have the Flora the Flamingo book! I'm waiting just a bit longer to "read" it to Julia. I'm kind of worried she would tear the flaps off at this point, but goodness it's a cute book!
I've add all the other books to Julia's library wish list, she has so few books compared to Marcus!
Great list! These all sound so sweet. And it's a nice change from all the boy books we read!
Those books are so cute!!
Olivia and The Fairy Princesses is one of MY favorite children's books! So cute!
