I haven’t posted lately because of the
bubonic plague walking pneumonia I have had. Apparently when you are pregnant, you’re immune system sucks. I quickly caught whatever Harper had, let it stew inside of me, and received a gift of pneumonia from the pregnancy gods. I’ve never had any kind of pneumonia in my life! Why do I have to get it NOW!? The good news is that the doctor said I was on my way “out” of the pneumonia doors since I had waited so long to actually come in to see her.
Anywho…whilst on my death bed, I scoured the blog world for children’s Christmas ideas and found a couple I REALLY love!
The first is advent Christmas books for the 12 days of Christmas. We are doing 12 instead of your regular 25 because….well 25 books would cost a TON of money unless I got the really rinky dink ones. Don’t get me wrong, she likes those a lot too, I just wanted to have something really special for her first christmas of being able to actually know things are going on. Only about 5 of the books are Christmas books, and the others are anytime books because my book supplier of choice was already severely picked through from all the moms that are actually on top of things this year.
Here is my Christmas book advent basket so far:
She will start opening books on Friday night for her nightly reading! So excited!
I haven’t perfected it yet, I think next year I want to wrap the books in brown parchment paper for a more vintage look!
If you want to use this idea, I got the free printable numbers from Makdoodle.com . They have some REALLY cute other ideas for Holiday fun other than Christmas!
I still have one more advent activity in mind to do this year if I have time to get it together and I will definitely be sharing because it is ADORABLE!
Oh, and if you’re wondering if Harper is feeling better just look at these:
