Christmas Music

Christmas is coming! I'm not ready. There is so much to do with shopping and decorating and preparing special foods and going to special events. There wasn't enough time in the day before, and now adding Christmas preparations to the schedule... Some days I feel like I just can't do it all anymore!
The best thing I can do to keep going though is to crank up the Christmas song list on the iPod and get to it. Christmas music- all music really- is a great motivator. I couldn't live without it! I'm so glad Greg and the kids love music too. I love the fact that quite often through the day I hear someone singing in this house.

Jillie's choir- The B-Sharp Singers- did some caroling at the village Christmas party. Here's a sample...

We got the trees up on Sunday.


When Jack Jack helped me open the box, he started singing the Happy Birthday song for some reason- and still does whenever he sees that tree. I have no idea why. Just glad he's singing. :)

Merry Christmas Preparations to all, and to all a good night!

(except for me- I'll be up all night, each night trying to get it all done!)

We haven't gotten the decorations up yet either. I'm gonna try to put up the lights outside today because it's warm (relatively-45 degrees) I love that you have a village Christmas party! Does Jackson think it's Santa's birthday? Maybe you need to emphasize Christ a little more in your house, Nik. :)

No, we're fine on the Christ centered Christmas... he was singing happy birthday to himself... like opening the tree box was opening a present for him. :)

Jack Jack made me laugh out loud! Too cute. No Christams decorations for us this year... we'll just have to enjoy yours!

The kids were so excited to see Jillie singing! I love getting ready for the holidays. And YES- I know you will not get any sleep until Jan 2nd. :)
