The 12 Days of Christmas illustrated by Laurel Long (for Elijah)

Mary’s First Christmas by Walter Wangerin Jr.
The 12 Days of Christmas has beautiful illustrations and each page shows not only the items featured on that particular day, but also those already mentioned, so it becomes almost like an “I Spy” book with lots to look for.  Elijah loves this type of book, and I know he’ll spend hours searching for everything over and over again.

Mary’s First Christmas is one of Ian’s favorites, but it’s pretty long, so it will take us a couple days to get through.

We attended a beautiful carol service tonight and got home late, so we didn’t do our Jesse Tree LEGO Challenge or read from Jotham’s Journey.  I guess we’ll just double up tomorrow.
