Our Christmas Book Advent Calendar Countdown

I LOVE Christmas! I know some moms begrudgingly go through the motions but I genuinely love the season and doing all the fun activities. One of the fun activities we enjoy is counting down to Christmas. I've written before about advent calendars. We have a Melissa and Doug magnetic advent calendar that we love but we also started another countdown tradition that combines my love of presents with my love of books. I really like focusing on the "waiting" part of advent with the kids because it's the first real exposure to the anticipation we feel as we await the arrival of Christ during the season.
