The Twenty-Four Days Before Christmas – Day 1

Today was the first day of our Twenty-Four Days Before Christmas — doing one special thing each day before Christmas. We took this idea from the book The Twenty-Four Days Before Christmas by Madeleine L’ Engle. We did this last year and enjoyed it so much we decided to do it again this year. So, we will do one special thing every single day before Christmas and post about it. This is not a kill yourself doing stuff for Christmas, but just enjoying the season by doing small things with each other and for others. Hopefully, we will find something that we can do together each day. 
Today we all went out to breakfast at Einstein Bros Bagels for our special thing. The kids loved it. Evelyn and Liam (my grandkids) came with us as well. The kids enjoyed it so much that I think we may do this more often. We also started reading our Advent book today when we got back from breakfast — ADVENTure of Christmas by Lisa Whelchel. We will be reading it each day leading up to Christmas. 
I only took one picture today and that was of Bella at breakfast – she sure looks happy. I guess she thinks this was a good start to the day.
