Almost every year since we got married I have bought a new children's Christmas book to add to my collection. I love children's books. And I look forward to this purchase so much.
To prepare for this purchase, I am going pull out my Christmas book collection to remember what I have and love. Then I will allow myself the luxury of looking at lists of books online, spending extra time in book stores sitting on the floor appreciating words and art.
If I had one tradition that I hope that my kids will carry into their lives as they grow up, this would be it. Reading and loving lovely Christmas books.
This purchase can be decided anytime before December 15.
