My husband thinks it's funny how I know so many Christmas songs. But when you grow up singing in church, then sing in choirs at school and then in High School your life becomes Show Choir, you learn a lot of Christmas music! In fact this time of year I really miss "Bell System"! This was the name of our show choir at my High School. We sang and danced just about all over the Metroplex and even traveled for competitions in different states. But this time of year, as I pass nursing homes all over town, I remember all the songs we used to sing and dance to in order to entertain the older folks. They loved it! I don't miss the show choir dress and character shoes, but I miss how much fun we used to have.

I have taken a break for a few minutes from "cheeseballing" (as Kelly Ann calls it) to put more Christmas music on my favorite new toy, the iPod Shuffle! My friend Kelly Ann knows how much I love Christmas music so she gave me THIS several weeks ago (before Thanksgiving I think. I start listening to Christmas music in November, early November)! It has become my favorite Christmas CD so I put it on my iPod and today I have really had a chance to listen to the lyrics I have sang many times before but never really paid attention to. This CD is wonderful and my favorite song on the CD right now is In The Bleak Mid Winter. Beautiful, so beautiful! Sarah leaves out a verse or two. I wish she wouldn't have. It's a powerful song. Anyway, if you are looking for some good Christmas music, this is a great cd to buy or download off of iTunes.

Also I wanted to share a picture with you that makes me smile. We get so many Christmas cards that I decided last year to just tape them to the coat closet door. It works great! The kids love looking at the pictures too. When I pass by this door, I smile. I love it! I love checking the mail this time of year. I just checked it and two more to add. They just keep on coming! I ran out of the ones I ordered from the place I had the kid's pictures made so I had to take a picture of the kids in their Christmas p's and I am sending out the rest today.

Okay, enough of random thoughts! Back to "cheeseballing" while the kids sleep! Merry Christmas!

Me too! Funny.

I asked for that cd from Santa so we'll see if it appears in my stocking!

So, you like your shuffle? I want to get one for my hubby...did it come with any ability to plug into the car system?

Have fun today! I couldn't believe it but I napped while my kids napped. I must need the rest!
