Seriously; nothing really exciting happened. Ok, untrue. We went out to eat Friday night at Cracker Barrel – because they have a huge cozy warm fire – then looked at Christmas lights. Admittedly, it was a little disappointing. We went through a neighborhood putting on a Christmas pageant and half the houses had no lights. Come on now! On Saturday, our new bed got delivered. We finally got a king size! They delivered it pretty early so we had to get up and move things over a bit in the bedroom. It forced me to clean up a little so now our rooms looks a lot nicer. We still need to paint and put down new carpet but for now, it looks like an adult room. 🙂
I was in a not so pleasant mood all weekend which is bad for the kids but good for my cleaning so the house looks pretty good. I did wrap presents each night so that made me happy. I think I am pretty much done with my shopping and that brings me a great deal of joy. I can sit back, relax, and tend to other things in my life.
This week, I wanted to focus on some songs I have always loved. I remember being about seven or eight when I found a cassette tape of classic Christmas songs in my parents’ collection. I took it from the living room shelf and played it in my little boombox every night at bedtime. Here are a few that I loved from it.
There was a version of this song on there too; I love traditional hymns.
