I had this great idea to post one thing a day for the 12 days of Christmas. Well...it is now only 8 days until Christmas, so I guess I'll do 8 days of Christmas instead. My plan was to share some of my favorite things about Christmas, complete with photos - of course! So...today I'll start with Christmas music.
I absolutely love Christmas music. I probably have 15-20 Christmas CDs and can't wait to start playing them every year. I take them out on Thanksgiving night and start listening to them the next day. It's all I listen to in the car, at school, and at home. I love all kinds of Christmas music and add to my collection every year. This year my addition was James Taylor's new Christmas CD . I love it! I also bought a $9.99 CD at WalMart today called of Christmas piano music and have been listening to it all night - very relaxing and Christmasy.
I also love listening to live Christmas music. Today Jacob entertained our family twice with Christmas songs. This morning, he and I played 2 Christmas songs at church together. He was fine, but I was a nervous wreck. It's been a LONG time since I played in front of people. It went pretty well though and he was really excited that I played with him. This afternoon he had a concert for the Van Wert Area Boy's Choir. This is his first year involved in the Boy's Choir and he really enjoys it. They sang at least 15 songs - all memorized - and did a great job. I'm really glad he has inherited the love for music that Chris and I both have.
