On the 6th day before Christmas

This week Hailey's Preschool has been singing Christmas Politically Correct Holiday Carols each morning from 8:30 to 9:00. There really is nothing better than a group of 2 1/2 to 6 year old children singing holiday songs!

Hailey is in the front row with the red shirt, black pants, hot pink shoes, white socks, green bow (don't ask)

Hailey has also been serenading us in the shower each day and I am quite surprised at how well she knows the words. This morning it was the "you better not pout" song and I laughed (silently, sort of) during the whole song/shower! Over and over and over again, never missed a word. Too cute.

Anyway, I didn't have my camera, but used my phone and my Flip video - Hailey wasn't much for the Holiday Carolling session so I clipped it much like Lauren's and added some written commentary of my own.

********UPDATED PHOTOS***********

One of my favorite parts of Christmas is the books. I love the books. I took some photos of some of our favorites to share with you. Most of these have more of a "winter" theme than a Christmas theme but I still wait till December to break them out each year! We have another favorite not shown here called "Dream Snow" but we couldn't find it when I had the camera out so it did not make the picture show.

If you don't have some of these they are definitely worth checking out and maybe even buying!

if you have a favorite Christmas book not shown here please jot it down for me! I'll say it again, I love books (and my Kindle of course)
