Christmas Tunes

Our Christmas card. Evan and Ella Grace all snuggled in and ready for Santa.

One of my all time favorite Christmas songs is "O Holy Night." I can't hear it without crying. I just love it! One of my favorite arrangements is this one. Derek's dad has also sang this many times in church and he does a beautiful job. He has such a beautiful voice.

It's fun to watch my children pick their favorite Christmas songs. Evan and Ella Grace have surprised me this year. I thought they would love "Rudolph" and "Frosty the Snowman." However, so far, their favorite song has been this one by the Chipmunks. We listen to it constantly (and I mean constantly) in the car. They think it is a riot! Ha! Evan also really LOVES this one. So funny! Evan and EG also sing "Jingle Bells" really well. :) I'm loving everything about this season!

Ella Grace has also really enjoyed the Precious Moments nativity scene. She has carried baby Jesus around quite a bit, and now we can't find Him. It is so sweet to hear her calling, "Baby Je-sus. Where arrrrre you?" If you ask her where He is, she says, "I dunno." We have turned the house upside down looking for Him. Hopefully He will turn up before His birthday.

Merry Christmas, Y'all!

Your Christmas card turned out sooooo cute!!!! Those little stinkers of yours are just precious! As for Alvin and the Chipmunks "Christmas Song", I'm kinda fond of it too!!! Did you know I can sing "Christmas don't be late", in the chipmunk voice. Well, I can!

Hope you find baby Jesus!

The card is WONDERFUL--love love love it! They both look soooo sweet.

Alexee has been walking our Baby Jesus around some, too...I would really hate to lose the center of our Nativity scene!? I hope yours shows up before Christmas. If not, He'll probably appear when you least expect it around July '09 or so! :)

"O Holy Night" is such a beautiful song--wow, it's one of my favorites, too!

Happy Christmas season! Looks as though you and your family are enjoying every busy second of it!

I love the card! So sweet!

When my oldest was 3, she would take baby Jesus from all the nativities in our home and I would find them all in her bed under the covers. She doesn't do that now and it makes me sad :(
