Days of Christmas, part 9

A little "gimme" shot as the ninth advent gift came out.

Today's was probably the most popular to date ... BOOKS. Our kids love books and you throw animals, snowmen and St. Nicholas into the mix and they're hooked.

Alivia received a Wonder Pets reindeer tale. Since a turtle is one of the three Wonder Pets attempting to rescue the stranded reindeer, Alivia was in love with the book. Book + turtle = doesn't get much better for Liv.

Alysse snagged an adorable boardbook about what snowmen do at night. Drinking iced cold cocoa and playing snowman games is right up her alley.

Alena's book is an illustrated version of the holiday classic "Jolly Old St. Nicholas." Besides enjoying a new Christmas story, she was pleased with the book's accompanying CD that she popped in her CD player for listening enjoyment as well.

And sticking with the dog theme, Trace's book was "12 Dogs for Christmas." This guy loves dogs, and dogs wearing Santa hats and reindeer antlers are even more amusing.
