It's not even Thanksgiving yet, I know, but excitement for Christmas builds here all year long. It is indeed to me the most wonderful time of the year. While my family was visiting my in-laws, I even got started on some Christmas gift shopping for them.
Several other bloggers from the Homeschool Blogging Connection and I are all sharing gift basket giveaways with you this week, so after entering mine be sure to go back and enter the others, too. The theme of my giveaway is Countdown to Christmas, and I'm sharing special gifts that relate to some of our own family traditions.
We countdown each day of December with an Advent calender that my Grandmother made me many years ago. Each day we remove an ornament from a pocket and snap it to the tree. Some years we plan ahead with slips of paper featuring verses from the Christmas story to read each day. Other years we have read through devotionals together. One year we all worked on memorizing passages from Luke together. My friend Amy has written Celebrate Jesus: An Advent Resource for Families and is offering a copy to one of you! It is available in your choice of ESV or KJV. It includes daily readings, activities, crafts, a hymn with sheet music for each day, daily copywork from the Scripture reading, and coloring pages. All 213 pages are designed to help families focus on Christ throughout the Christmas season.
What are your favorite Christmas scents? I love the smell of a pine tree, hot spiced tea, homemade cookies, and of course...chocolate. Kim is sharing this Truffle Fudge Hot Chocolate Mix made with premium dark chocolate shavings. This versatile mix makes amazing hot chocolate for the family and can be served iced or frozen for a chilly and delicious chocolate treat. Visit her website: http://www.mydcdsite.com/kimberlysondag
