Merry Christmas Darling - Karen Carpenter

Here's the video. Sorry I was having issues posting it below. :)

Reoccuring Dreams

Do you ever have reoccuring dreams? I do. The only reoccuring dreams I have are that I'm in a tornado. Weird, huh? I had this dream last night, I was hanging out with my mom and all of the sudden a storm came throught and the next thing you know-She and I are holding on for dear life as a tornado came rumbling through the neighborhood. They're never scary dreams, just reoccuring. I wonder what Sigmund Freud would have to say about that dream. He'd probably say that I'm crazy, in which I would reply with. " Tell me something I don't know, Sir Sigmund." ;) So, I'm curious if I'm the only one who has reoccuring dreams. Well, I know I'm not the only one, so enlighten me. :)

In other news, it's the holiday season, and you know what that means! CHRISTMAS CARDS! :) Christmas cards make me happy. I know some people think they're an unnecessary waste of money, but I completely disagree. I love getting Christmas cards in the mail from friends I haven't heard from in a while and finding out what they've been up to all year. Plus, getting snail mail that isn't a bill of some sort is ALWAYS nice. :) So far we have gotten at leave one Christmas card a day since Dec. 1. Pretty good, huh? I ordered ours on Monday...Tuesday? (I can't remember) but, they're on their way!

Also, if you haven't noticed. I love music. :) I've probably loved music ever since my sister would get SUPER annoyed with me because I played music in my room 24/7 when we were growing up. She would always bang on the wall (since our rooms were next to eachother) and yell at me to turn it down (or off!) Which usually provoked me to play something even more loud and obnoxious. ;) But, you know what's funny...she married a man who loves music even MORE than I do! So, jokes on her I guess. :)

Anywho, I prefaced with that story because I wanted to share another Christmas song that is near and dear to my heart. It's a song I didn't realize I cherished so much until I went away to college. (crazy the things you learn about yourself in college). I often heard this song growing up around around Christmas time, because it happens to be sung by one of my Mom's favorite groups, The Carpenters. I think I love the song so much because it reminds me of my Mom and what a BEAUTIFUL singing voice she has. My Mom sounds just like (or better, I think) Karen Carpenter, when she sings. I love to listen to her sing and play the piano, she's absolutley wonderful at it. So enjoy this Christmas classic, "Merry Christmas, Darling" by the Carpenters.

Sneak Peak

Here's a little sneak peak of our Christmas decorations this year!
The mantle is my favorite. It looks even better when there is a fire burning in the fire place and the Christmas tree (which is right next to it) is all lit up.

Oh! and soon, our fire place will be black, not ugly brass. Brass is yucky...very yucky.

Our other decorations are up, but still need some tweaking. I will try to post some more pictures soon!

Oh! And for those of you who don't know that we have a dog, that's who the third stocking is for. I didn't want anyone to wonder. ;)
