Friday Fives (+): Advent Books

Happy Friday!

I woke up to this:

Just as a reminder, I live in Houston. And it is supposed to be nearly 50 deg (F) by lunch time.

Advent Books

IMG_20171206_092131.jpgWhen MyChild was two, we joined in with the trend of opening wrapped books leading up to Christmas. We LOVE books around here. We have more than enough holiday books for the 24 nights leading up to Christmas and we (I) have no restraint when it comes to getting more books for our house. After two years of wrapping (and wasting so much paper) our books, I changed it up a little. Now, I washi tape a piece of a puzzle onto each book. As we go through the pile leading up to Christmas Eve, MyChild adds the magnetic puzzle to our refrigerator, trying to guess what the final image will be.

Last year it was this:

This year she will eventually see this:
