Kiann reading his book
Ty & Lane got sweat pants with their books.
One of the things that this grandma always does is to give a book for Christmas to every grandchild. Bet that doesn't surprise you, does it?
This year since we had our celebration on Christmas Eve morning, I decided to add to that book a pair of pajamas! That way they could wear the pajamas and start reading their book on Christmas Eve while waiting for Santa.
Some of the older boys have even started adding the book they want to their Christmas lists. This year 16-year old Ty wanted Hunger Games. The 13-year olds: Lane and Kiann, both wanted the latest copy of Diary of a Whimpy Kid. The little ones each got a board book. Audrey and Mallory, Meron and Bam got Mr. Mosquito Put on His Tuxedo because grandma is mentioned in the acknowledgements. (Adrian and Graham already have that book.)
Promoting reading is one of the best things a grandma can do! Make a reason to share a book any time you get the chance!
