CD madness


(this picture has nothing to do with the post but Daniel found Ben sleeping like this and it had us cracking up, so he took a picture. And yes, that is a big honking pile of laundry which still has yet to be folded and put away)
One of my favorite things about the holidays is the music. I have quite the collection if I do say so myself. Anyway as Buddy the elf says, "the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear." We do this by making a little CD of some of our favorite Christmas songs each year to give to our friends. But as I was compiling the songs for this years CD, I realized last years was the BOMB- it totally rocked! Seriously. How can I possibly top it? I can't. This years is good, but there are several "dramatic" feeling songs, which are fabulous if you are in the mood for them. Daniel was not in the mood for them tonight, as he was helping me get them ready to "burn baby burn." So this had me second guessing my selections. But I have come to the conclusion that I am not gonna stress over it. I love the songs on there. Even if Daniel thinks some of them are "never-ending". They are some of my favorites. So there.
Really though- I must say, Daniel is so great! Even though he wasnt in the mood for Christmas CD making, he helped me out. What a guy. Now the trick will be seeing if he will help me deliver the goods.

Our Ben baby is soooo big now. I don't recognize him! I guess his lack of sleep may have something to do with being too comfortable and he has to find his own way. So, your honestly don't have my David Foster? No one else liked it like you and I did! Oh, by the way, I am signed in in John's blog--don't know how to fix that
