My favorite Christmas music…

I have different christmas cd’s that i listen to for different occasions…

When I am decorating for Christmas, I listen to Michael W. Smith “Christmas.”

Tree decorating = Mariah Carey “Merry Christmas”

Wrapping presents = Amy Grant “Home for Christmas”

 

However, one cd is almost always on throughout the Christmas season and most likely you will hear it in my car throughout the year and that is Celine Dion “These are the Special Times.”

 

Just thought I would share. 

3 days till Christmas

Just random stuff…

Jenny loves to dress up…ok maybe I am the one who likes to dress her up…

Anyway, it was baking day yesterday at our house. Mom and Gabriel made fudge and oatmeal raisin cookies.

I made Christmas sugar cookies.

 I was going to take the sugar cookies to the Pond House on Christmas Day but the cookies met their doom when they were precariously placed on a shelf and proceeded to fall onto the floor and were smashed to smithereens. (The above picture is of the cookies before their fall to the floor. Now, they are still tasty but no longer pretty) I will have to make something else…perhaps a pecan pie…perhaps Tiger Butter… Today will be another baking day.

Gabriel gets a haircut today too! He always looks so grown up after he gets his hair cut short. Kinda sad actually but he looks very cute! I will try to remember to take a before and after picture of him. 

He didn’t wake up coughing in the night for the first time in a week! Yippee!

Jenny made it up 8 stair steps before she got tired last night. She was trying to get to the cat (Lilly). Lilly would go up a couple of steps to get away from Jenny but Jenny kept climbing! It’s the highest Jenny has ever climbed (and don’t worry, I was right behind her ready to catch her if she fell)

We went Christmas light looking last night. I love Christmas lights. They’re so pretty.

Merry Christmas

Climbing Stairs…

Little baby Jenny has discovered how to climb the stairs…she is very quick about it and you have to be right behind her because she has not yet figured out how to get back down nor has she realized that merely turning around will not get her back to the bottom. She is very excited about it though…she can now get to the kitty cats that have, till now, hopped up the stairs for safety…

This picture was taken last week…

 

And this was taken this morning…
