This week has been so busy…I haven’t blogged much. I am sooooo happy to report that this stage of motherhood I am in is the best! I no longer have to do any Christmas decorating. I just say the word, after the kids have been begging all Thanksgiving Day week to get out the Christmas tree and all the decorations, and poof! The Christmas tree goes up along with everything else. The best part is, my 18 year old daughter capably cleaned up the mess of getting everything out. I utterly love having responsible, older children! This is the earliest our tree has ever been up, before Dec. 1!
I am going to see if I can blog every day about a picture book for Christmas and a game for your gift lists. So here goes. The book pictured above gets 5 out of 5 stars from me. It’s a cute book about a mouse who lives in a hole in the wall, and he stumbles upon a nativity set in the living room of the home he lives in. He finally figures out what it’s all about when he hears the Christmas story. The pictures aren’t cartoony, something I don’t like in picture books, and I like that it focuses on Christ.
