ABC is for Christmas

How is everyone's Christmas holidays going?  I just love the gorgeous illustrations in this Little Golden Book, ABC is for Christmas, written by Jane Werner Watson and illustrated  by Sally Augustiny.  
We had a nice Christmas Day in spite of my husband and 2 older daughters being quite sick with a bad cough and fever.  Now my husband is getting a bit better but now the baby has it.  Not good. 

We had a green Christmas this year, it's been a few years since that happened, and my 8 year old is disappointed that it doesn't look very Christmas-y outside.  At least we have electricity!  Last year's ice storm threw everyone in our area for a loop last year in the week leading up to Christmas.  At my house we were ok as we were only out of power for 13 hours.  But many people we know had it a lot worse!  
In the week coming up I am looking forward to more get-togethers with family and friends.  My husband has the week off work so I will have help with the kids all week, yay!  Thank goodness as it would have been hard to manage all these sick kids without his help!  See you in the New Year, everyone!


  1. This book looks fabulous. I love the H picture! We had a green Christmas, too, despite snow to the south and northwest of us. The meteorologists gave us a little hope, but it was not to be. There seemed to be a lot of sickness going around down here, too. None of us felt completely right, but I know a lot of people who felt worse. Have a lovely week!

  2. Oh my stars this is BEAUTIFUL!!!! so sorry about the sickies, it really seemed to be everywhere this December!
