What’s REALLY on the coffee table: Christmas!

Oops!  Somehow the blog is lagging behind “real time”.  The day after Thanksgiving we decorated for Christmas, and the Renaissance book basket got bumped to the side.   Most of our Christmas selections are the same as last year’s.  Holiday books are stacked invitingly on several tables, taunting us to enjoy their pages.

We are using Tabitha’s Travels this year for our advent time.  Tabitha, like the others in Ytreeide’s Jotham series, is a slightly outlandish adventure.  It gives us a fun seasonal change from our usual Oswald Chambers devotionals.

I selected for The Christmas Doll our afternoon read-aloud.  This poignant story is a treasure, and has prompted rich discussions with my eldest girls.

Now I’m off to bed in order to rise early tomorrow and bake a cake for Keianna’s 4th birthday!
