Seasonal Music

I LOVE Christmas music, or as I prefer seasonal music, as I mentioned yesterday and I just wanted to share some with you. I have put up a new music player that has a variety of different songs of the season, I wouldn't say these are my favorites but I feel like they are a good portrayal of my music tastes this season. I love everything from traditional, alternative, commercial, instrumental, etc. I hope you will take a minute to listen and enjoy.

Most Wonderful Time of the YEAR!!!

Twelve of the reasons I love the months of November and December!!!

First, there is snow and I have been assured by the weather man that today I will see the first flakes of the season!
Second, there is Thanksgiving and who doesn't love to eat and hang out with loved ones!
Third, everyone is more thoughtful this time of year!
Fourth, everything is more beautiful, little white lights make the world look better!
Fifth, you are given the opportunity to really think about what could make people happy, this is why I love presents and do not think of them as commercial at all! You don't have to spend tons of money, you just have to put some thought into what would make that person smile. I have had my list of gifts to give made for over a month now I love when I am able to pull it out and add a gift that has come to mind for someone. Keeps family and friends in my thoughts!Sixth, most everyone takes the time to think about what is important to them. This reflection puts life back into perspective.
Seventh, decorating for Christmas. This is one of my favorite things in the world to do!
Eighth, seeing family twice in almost the space of one month where usually it takes around 4-5 months to see those that aren't close!
Ninth, CHRISTMAS MUSIC!!! I love it, in all varieties, and this year I plan to spread the joy ;)
Tenth, celebrating Christ's, Payton's and my birthdays and soon Rolene's little boy's birthday. All of these fall into these two months!!
Eleventh, going home to NEBRASKA!!! No place in the world can feel like being home!
Twelfth, CHRISTMAS and everything else that encompasses!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I hope you share the joy of the season with me and have a wonderful November and December!!


I just voted and I am really glad I did but I wish I could have studied things out a little more before I made things official. I was also randomly selected to fill out an exit poll that I thought was really interesting. It had less to do with how I voted and more to do with my feelings about things, it made me think things over and I was grateful for the opportunity, thank you random selection!

PS I hope whoever is chosen to lead this country will put aside personal opinions and agendas and make decisions based on the overall well being/future of our country, fingers crossed!
