Christmas stories this time of year

This is the time of year that I just love reading and bringing out all the all time favorite stories. 'The wee Christmas Cabin of Carn-na-ween'~ Olivia has loved this book . The quite magic of a white Christmas. I just love books that are illustrated with such realism. Capturing the personality and mood of the words with true artist flare. Olivia also did a water color painting of the Story. I loved how she captures the bitter cold snowy night and the warm glow of the cottage~

Happy Christmas story reading to your little ones

Suzanne~Olivia's painting is wonderful and I can tell she's really imagined the story she's read. I can't wait until my Little King is afoot and I can read to him again. He's so like his mama (and dad) that he loves books--they make the imagination soar.
Joyful time for you and your family. I love you, XOXO

What a pretty painting! I just love the swirling snow/stars. This sounds like such a wonderful christmas story, though, a bit too old for my little ones. I marked it on Amazon anyway for when they are older. :)

What wonderful inspiration, I'm going to see if the book is for sale and I might suggest painting to the children next week... they'd love that.
