Christmas is just a week away as I type this. I'm not sure that I'm really ready, but Dec. 25th will come regardless if I'm ready or not! :) We've been keeping busy around the Burdorf house trying to get in the Christmas spirit.
One of the things we've done is start a new tradition. Since the kiddos are always asking me how many days are left until Christmas I went to the library and checked out 20 children's books about Christmas and wrapped up 10 for Jenna and 10 for Brody. And then, I wrote numbers on them from 10 to 1. Each day they get to open a "new book" to read. They LOVE it! They get so excited to see what their book of the day is.
A little story time. Bowen is a cheeseball!
Jenna's first book was "Bear Stays Up for Christmas." I love those books.
Singing some songs. Brody looks enthused, doesn't he?!
Afterward, I told her I was proud of her and she said, "Mom, you couldn't see it but my eyes were all watery because I was so nervous!"
Aaron captured this photo of the boys. Love, Love, Love!!!
And, I'd really wish this would happn...
It's Christmas! I was born in Minnesota! Raised in Northern Iowa! What else can I say? I dig the white stuff for the holidays. They are saying maybe Wednesday or Thursday. *Fingers crossed*
Are you ready for Christmas? Are you feeling the holiday spirit? I sure hope so!
