Cute Car Wallet is Perfect for the Holidays!

Fortunately, we don't have to travel too far to see our family for the holidays.  It's about an hour drive, but I still always have 3 of these car wallets in my purse/car.  Not only do the kids love playing with them in the car, but once we get to Grandma's house they have a blast playing with them.

This bright cheerful car wallet is brand new in the shop and I LOVE all the vehicles on the blue fabric, and the perfect wheel fabric that makes up the pockets to hold the Hot Wheels or Matchbox cars.

An Advent Calendar Without Candy or Gifts?

I was looking for something to put in my advent calendar that wasn't candy or small gifts because I feel completely overloaded with both of those things this time of year.  I don't want my kids to get sucked into the idea that the holidays are all about GIFTS.  Yes, gifts are a fun part of the holidays, but so is being around friends and family and DOING things together.  There are so many fun things to do in and around our community and I love that this time of year we have even more opportunities to be around our wonderful friends and neighbors!

Well, thank you Pinterest for leading me to Kim McCary's amazing blog post with just the idea I was searching for!  Usually a huge time sucker, Pinterest has come through with some pretty awesome ideas and this one is fantastic.  Kim does an "Activity Advent Calendar" with her family, and we are totally adopting that idea this year!  I can't wait to start!

Here is our cute little advent calendar just waiting to be filled with activities:

Here are Kim's little cards with some of the activities she does with her family:

Our activities will be different. We are axing the "sledding with Dad" one since it's usually 75 degrees in December here and adding things like our community golf cart parade and a horse-drawn carriage ride through the vineyards we do every year (which is GORGEOUS with Christmas lights on the vines).  The boys are helping me come up with ideas which has been a lot of fun in itself!  My oldest is 6 and VERY into traditions and holidays so he is having a great time and really excited about all the fun activities we'll be doing together.

Now all we have to do is wait for December to get here! This early Thanksgiving this year is throwing me off!

The BEST Holiday Book List For Kids

Yes, I am up to my ears in fabric and half finished projects, but I had to take a break today to swap out the kids bookrack books...out with the fall books, in with the HOLIDAY books! Woohoo!  We have a large cabinet that holds all their books, but each season I switch out the books we put in their bookrack so new books are always on display.  It keeps them excited about books they already have but maybe haven't read in awhile, and it's a fun way to welcome new seasons.  Here's a picture of our fantastic bookrack from Pottery Barn Kids:

I stalked it for months before it went on sale, at the EXACT moment I got a PB Kids coupon in the mail.  Clearly, that was a sign it was meant to be MINE! :)

Our holiday/winter/Christmas book collection is actually a LOT bigger than I thought (see, even I lose track of the fantastic books we have when they are hidden away in a cabinet where only their spine can be seen).  When I was talking to a couple friends about holiday books, it was fun to see the different books we have (mine mostly come from our local library's used bookstore) so I thought I would share this list of our favorites.  You might have all of them already, or find some new fun ones to read this year!  I tried to include links on most of them so you can easily find more info on them if you're interested.  Happy reading! :)

The BEST Holiday/Winter/Christmas Book List for Kids begins....NOW: ;)

2. Redbird at Rockefeller Center by Peter Maloney (this is an absolute FAVORITE in our house...and we get to talk to the kids about some of the places in our old stomping ground...NYC!)

4. The Bears' Christmas by Stan and Jane Berenstain (the old school one, where Papa Bear is still goofy and hilarious...I don't like the new Papa who is wise and mature.) :)

6. The Penguin that Hated the Cold (we had to find this one on ebay, but the kids LOVE it)

9. The Nutcracker by Susan Jeffers (We take the kids to see the Nutcracker ballet every year and reading the book first really helped them understand what was going on in the also helped my husband who after the 3rd year finally admitted he had no idea what was happening in the ballet.) :)

Well, I stopped at 10 but there are LOTS more where those came from. :) Let me know in the comments what your favorite holiday books for children are.
