Stacks of Books on Epiphany

On the feast of Epiphany our children once again discovered stacks of books wrapped in gold from the three wise men!  As I was sharing this year's Baskets of Books for Easter list I realized that I never did get around to sharing the books they received back in January. Time to fix that! 

For Captain (19) and Ranger (17)
**in addition to the stacks of books ordered and delivered directly to their college for 2nd semester**

For Twinkle Toes (16)

For Chiquita (14)

For Snuggles (12)
The World War II DK Eyewitness Book was the *only* Christmas wish he had this year after receiving the World War I version for his birthday last year! 

For Rose (10)
(Note: I purchased a couple boxed sets of the Mini Editions of Elsa Beskow books a couple years ago and have been giving the books to the children a couple at a time! The Madeline book was a follow up to her Madeline themed 10th birthday just before Christmas.) 

For Bud (8)

For Grace (2) 

.: Giveaway :. 

I have an extra calendar and an extra copy of World War II... 
I accidentally ordered World War II from both Barnes and Noble and Amazon. Whoops! 

Enter the Rafflecopter if you're interested in them and I'll randomly pick a name on Saturday! 


  1. I love Heather’s artwork and would love the calendar and the WWII book! My husband loves learning about WWII and this would be a special book to own! Plus, my son just finished reading a book about WWII. Thanks so much!

I buy girls clothing from Hanna Andersson (pjs and some dresses for younger girls), Baby My Love on Etsy, JessaKae (dresses for my older girls), and have lots of hand-me-downs I have saved over the years from Gymboree, LandsEnd, L.L. Bean, and occasionally Garnet Hill. Sometimes Old Navy too.
