Christmas Spirit

I'm am now fully immersed in the Christmas spirit. :) I can indulge myself now that Thanksgiving is over, too. Unfortunately, I was completely unable to find any of my Christmas CDs for the past 4 days (granted, I was away from home for 3 of those days). I went down to the storage unit and pulled out the Christmas decorations. The first thing I did (after searching the boxes for my elusive CDs) was hang the wreath I got on sale a year or so ago. I love this thing...

And, after calling my mother and asking her if she had moved my cds when she was up here cleaning last February, I found a bag of CDs that I'd removed from my old car a few months ago, and promptly forgotten about. So, tomorrow I will have my music! Hehe...

Speaking of Christmas music, I was suggesting some good albums to my mother tonight on the phone. It went something like this:

Me: I really like the Bare Naked Ladies Christmas album, but I'm not sure you would.

Mom: (laughter) I'm not sure I should have that case lying around the house.

Me: (laughter) It's not perverse or anything. They aren't naked on the cover. It's just some dangling balls or something.

Total Silence followed by laughing...

Me: That sounded really bad. Did I just say that to my mother?

Mom: Yes it did sound bad.

And there was more, but I've already forgotten it. Good thing my mother has a good sense of humor! (And yes, I already told her I was blogging this! We were both laughing about the whole thing.)

Now, on a completely different topic - I took this adorable picture of my little brother this weekend. Doesn't he look innocent? Ha! He's such a camera ham! 2 seconds before I took this picture, he was hurling rocks and chunks of dirt against the metal barn wall, making what had to be horrible reverberating noises for my dad and brother who were inside putting up the center roof.

Little Brother is SO ADORABLE!! Ohmygoodness! Ohmygoodness!
The wreath is very pretty too!

Isn't it funny when something funny is said/seen, we're so quick to think: "I'm so totally going to blog this!"

Good to have you back home...I was missing your musings!

Ha ha ha ha!!!

I loved that conversation with your mom!! Sounds like the kind of thing we say to each other, or I end up saying to my mom......

I am also Christmasifying our abode. I can't find our Xmas cds either, but I am pretty sure mine are stuffed in a box in the closet of death. We may well have to do without. Pout...

Welcome all to the holiday season!!

Hey! I MISSED you, Tami! Thought you got in your new car & left Planet Earth, girl! Your lil' brother IS a cutie! And your mom sounds like a blast! About Christmas music - I'm SOOOOO hacked because MY favorite Christmas music (it's World music) is not on a cd, but only on a cassette. Ugh! Anyway... Glad you found YOUR music. And glad to see you posting again!

I am going to have to try out the BNL's Christmas CD! I don't own any Christmas CD's because I tend to lose them. This year I have decided to download some songs so I will only lose them if I misplace my computer! (or it crashes - knock on wood)

Your baby bro is a cutie pie!

I don't care what you say. With a face like that, your brother has to be a perfect angel.

Thank God we have a radio station in town that plays Christmas music 24/7 from Thanksgiving until January 1. It totally cuts down on the stress of finding Christmas music. LOL...

Except, I will say, I do have a few albums like Celine Dion and Harry Connick Jr. but what Christmas-enthusiast doesnt, you know?

And that picture of your lil' brother...I can already tell he will be a heartbreaker someday.
