Christmas is over.
The tree is still here though.
The decorations are put away.
Along with the advent books for next year's countdown.

I think, overall, the book countdown went well.
As good as can be expected with a 2 year old.
Sometimes Morgan was excited about opening that nights book.
Others she didn't really seem in to it.

These are just some of the books that we loved to read over and over:
Duck and Goose - It's time for Christmas
The Night Before the Night Before Christmas
Counting Christmas
Merry Christmas Curious George
How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Snowmen at Night
A Wish to be a Christmas Tree

Plus, Olive the Other Reindeer
from Grandma and Grandpa Frahm last Christmas, and
Frosty the Snowman
narrated by Grandma and Grandpa Goulding

Next year we'll add a few new books into the mix.
I might just see what I can find now on sale...

One more day of this crazy post-a-day schedule. Despite a little burnout, I'm getting pretty anxious to physically put this album together. Hope no one minds if I take a little break after all this? :)


  1. Okay, I can see where you might be getting burnt out, but it was nice to see. I suppose we could forgive you if you didn't post every day. :) The album will be full of wonderful memories and treasured for years to come. P.S. The duck and goose book looks cute.

  2. Maybe a "little" break will be okay, but don't hold out on us too long! =) You have us eager stalkers looking..
