Advent Book List

Last year we began a new tradition of reading one Advent book a night until Christmas. To make this tradition extra exciting I even wrapped each of the books in purple and pink paper, like I've seen other cool mamas do. It was such a hit (both the books and the unwrapping) that we decided to do it again this year. Here are the books we are using this Advent!
