Before the boys went to bed tonight we read Snowmen at Christmas together.  We used to read together every night.  It was a special time that I really miss.  Now that the boys read on their own we don’t read together that often anymore.  It was really nice to share that time tonight.  This is a cute book too.  Have you read it with your kids?  The boys and I recommend it.
