My boys' Christmas book...

When my sons were small this picture book about the Christmas of dwarfs was their absolute favorite. End of November I used to unpack our Christmas boxes. We decorated the house and in the end we took out this book, lit a candle, made some tea, cut some gingerbread and sat on the sofa. On each side I felt the warm body of a boy and then I narrated the story over and over again. As you know my boys are grown up now but at least once every Christmas they look at the pics and then we remember those long gone afternoons and laugh about the funny but friendly faces of these chaps. We had many Christmas books but this one was and is our most precious one.

Warm hugs to you all!

  1. Hello Christa:
    It all looks and sounds to be delightful. We do so hope that the tradition will be maintained this year.

  2. one day your boys can read the stories to their children. Family airlooms are precious. They remain with us always. And our boys will always be our boys.!
