10 Books to Help Moms Get in the Christmas Groove
The Holidays are the busiest times of the year for moms. To help me get through the chaos and busy days I read several books with holiday stories to keep me motivated and my spirit warm. I usually have a paperback for an occasional long hot bath and one or two going on my Kindle. I also keep a big fat stack of decorating magazines to motivate me to deck the halls.
Here is a list of ideas to help you get in to you Christmas Groove
Saving Christmas only one dollar on your Kindle for his heart warming contemporary romance. This is on my list to add today to my Kindle.
A Home For Christmas was the first one I read for the season and I totally love the warm feelings and it takes place in Tennessee which of course made me homesick. I finished it in two days and I am a super busy mommy.
The Everything Family Christmas Book (Everything (Reference)) is like an encyclopedia for Christmas. Pack to the rim with holiday traditions from around the world, decorating ideas, recipes and traditional songs. I just love it and keep it around all year long in case I get in some kind of weird mood to start planning for Christmas in June.
I was excited to find this one for my Kindle collection. A Christmas Carol is a family classic. We always read the book and watch the film as a family tradition. I also love to take my sons to see Dicken Carolers in Los Angeles every year. We are a music loving family.
Here is a good one to keep on the coffee table for your family.
Day Christ Was Born and the Day Christ Died Two books in one and a really good choice. It as if you are walking with Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem and with Jesus one his last days. Truly a great read and truly a great gift to friends and family.
The silly antics of three angels, Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy. I love this book and there are several more to choose from. Debbie Macomber needs to write a few more. Totally worth you Mommy reading time.
I’ll Be Home for Christmas – Four holiday stories to ease the ache in your mommy shopping toes. I have this one ready to start reading as soon as I finish Saving Christmas. I love short stories, it means I can finish without falling asleep with my book light on at night on my longer Holiday preparation days.
Thanksgiving and Christmas are the two holidays when most folks show their true love of butter and sugar. Paula’s book of recipes and bits and pieces of family life during the holidays tickle my southern heart and palate. I use a version of her French Toast Casserole every year. It is a big winner for my family. I read cookbooks just like a I read any other book and this one is fun and does have really good recipes.
Well, you know the title caught my eye. But the idea of Kissing Santa Clause is really no that appealing. But a trio of fun romance sure will be nice on a cold day after shopping, wrapping and decorating.
And finally, a blast from my childhood. I was an avid Laura Ingalls Wilder fan in my childhood. I still remember the story of Christmas in Little House in the Big Woods. This is a treasure and this year I am sharing a couple of stories with my Little Guy in hopes that although he is a boy he will understand what it was like to work hard and put family first.
Enjoy the season and your family and make sure you take a little time for you, read something, listen to some good music and go get a Christmas Red pedicure.
