Our Favorite Holiday Books

 

Hey guys!! Happy happy Wednesday! We have made it to the middle of the week! Y'all, there are NINE days until Christmas! How crazy is that!! Today I am sharing all of our favorite Holiday books!! I am linking up with Lindsay for Wednesday Chat, and Joanne for Encouraging Hearts and Homes!! Also, make sure to follow me on Goodreads HERE!!

  


The Best Christmas Pageant Ever by Barbara Robinson

This book is so sweet! We normally read this on the way to Auburn to see our family! The book is about the Herdman siblings, known as the worst kids in history, who take over the annual Christmas pageant at their church. This book is so heartwarming and very funny! Such a sweet read!


Mortimer's Christmas Manger by Karma Wilson

This book is so cute. The illustrations in the book are so cute and sweet as well!
The book is about Mortimer, a mouse, who is cramped and uncomfortable in his hole. So he goes exploring around the house to find a new home. He finds a nativity and settles himself into the manger. Mortimer soon realizes that the statues are Mary, Joseph, and Jesus and returns them to their places. 
It sounds adorable, doesn't it!!


Who Is Coming To Our House? by Joseph Slate 
This is also another illustrated, sweet children's book. It is about all of the animals who live in the barn, and are preparing for Baby Jesus to come. It is so, so sweet! You can read it with the whole entire family. 


Pete The Cat Saves Christmas by Eric Litwin and James Dean
We love Pete the Cat! Especially the one about his white shoes, and how they turn red then blue, then back to white again!! This one is super cute! Pete has to fill in for Santa Paws, and he saves Christmas!! Super sweet story!


Room for a Little One: A Christmas Tale by Martin Waddell
In the barn where baby Jesus is born, all of the big animals keep saying to the smaller animal, "There is always room for a little one." Then, when Mary and Joseph come they say, "There is always room for a little one." It is so sweet, and the illustrations are very pretty!


The Night Before Christmas by Clement C. Moore
This book is a classic! Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse!!


Gingerbread Baby by Jan Brett
My whole family loves Gingerbread Baby! The story and illustrations are so fun and lively! Such a sweet, sweet book!


One Snowy Night by M. Christina Butler
First off, isn't this cover so cute!!?? This story is about a little hedgehog who is caught unprepared for winter! 



Let it Snow: Three Holiday Romances by Maureen Johnson, Lauren Myracle, and John Green
This book was one of Ella and I's Monthly Book Club books for December! I really enjoyed reading it! It was such a fun, and sweet read!


Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
This was also one of our Book Club books!! I actually enjoyed this book, it was a sweet read! It was as good as Let It Snow, but I still enjoyed it!


The Twelve Days of Dash & Lily by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
I liked this book better than the first one! This one was obviously more Christmasy, and I think that's why I liked it better!


Mind the Gap Dash & Lily by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
This was the third installment of the Dash & Lily series! It was pretty good, but I don't know if it was my favorite!! 


The Twelve Dates of Christmas by Jenny Bayliss
I LOVED this book!! This was my favorite holiday read of the month!! It was so, so sweet! A great holiday read!!



Well, friends, that is all that I gave for you today!! I hope you enjoyed! Have a wonderful, wonderful day! I will see you guys back here tomorrow with a very BIG announcement!!

Friday Favorites - 1.12.21

  Hey friends!!! Happy, happy Friday, my FAVORITE day of the week! I hope you all are well! Let me tell y'all, I missed blogging so much in my little break, and I am so happy to be back in the blogging world! As usual, I am sharing a couple of my weekly FAVORITES! *Linking up with Erika and Andrea , Shelbee , and Nancy Before we begin, thank you so much Ella for letting me use this graphic for this post!! 💙  O N E : On Wednesday, I shared all about my dog, Maddie, who recently passed away. Although it was sad, I enjoyed looking back at all of the fun things we have done and seeing all of the funny photos. Thank you all so much for your love and support this past week! T W O : Two weekends ago, my travel volleyball team went to our first tournament of the season!! We definitely had a blast! We ended up winning first place in the 13-POWER division!!

Let’s Look - Coffee Area!

Hey there! Happy Wednesday!! I am so excited that it is the first Let’s Look of the year! Today we are taking a look into my coffee area!! Linking up with Shay and Erika !  To be honest, I don't drink coffee on a daily basis! Don't get me wrong, I love coffee, and I would drink it every day, but I just drink tea instead! I love hot tea a tiny bit more than coffee! So yeah, I love coffee, but I don't need it every day. Before we get into it, check out my posts from earlier this week! Monday I shared a Christmas 2020 Recap , and Tuesday I shared my Makeup Haul ! Let’s get into it! This is one coffee maker! We have the Keurig, and the water Hamilton Beach water boiler! We got out Keurig a couple of years ago from Costco, and I fell in love immediately! You can make five different cup sizes, and it makes iced coffee as well!  Since I don't do much of the coffee drinking around my house, here is the coffee that my parents use! As for me, I drink Twining’s English Breakfast

Tuesday Talk - A Day In The Life

Hey friends!! Happy Tuesday! Can we just take a step back for a moment and recognize that it is already January the 19th!!?? It has been 19 days into this New Year, and I feel like it all happened in the blink of an eye. It went by so fast. Today is the third Tuesday of the month, so that means it's time for . . . TUESDAY TALK!! Today I will be talking about how my day goes, meaning I will be sharing A Day In The Life! Day In The Life posts are some of my all-time favorite posts to read, so I am super excited to share this one with you! Linking up with Erika and Ashley ! Friday morning I woke up at 5:04 AM, my alarm did not go off, but luckily I roused close to my normal time! Then I checked my sleep app to see how much sleep I got.  After checking that, I laid in bed and read for 10 minutes. This is my favorite way to wake up and quietly prepare myself for the day! Then I got out of bed and went to the kitchen to make myself some breakfast! I made myself some hot tea, and because
