We have been in full Christmas swing around here. All my shopping is done. Yay! The presents are all wrapped. Yay!....I even have all the stocking stuffers ready to go. Yay, Yay, Yay!!! Please don't hate me :)
I love that with all that done we can just slow down and really enjoy this season. The kids have been LOVING our advent activities. But I seriously think the highlight of their day is the Christmas story they get to unwrap each night and read together by the tree. I love that it's the little things that always seem to make the biggest impact :)
We have also been enjoying the Christmas tunes. Today while driving my all time favorite Christmas song came on "Do you hear what I hear".
Man, oh man do I love that song. I remember recording myself on one of those fisher price recorder thingys when I was in jr.high singing that song... and that is when I discovered (after playing it back) that I was completely tone deaf. Not a pretty sound. How is it that when I'm signing along to music I think I sound pretty good and as soon as I take out the music I sound like a dying animal?!
Anyways, I thought it would be fun to ask the kids and Chris what their favorite songs were too and here's what they said:
Chris "O Holy Night"
Evan- "Angles we have heard on high"
Abby "Go tell it on the mountain"
Selah "Rudolph the red nosed reindeer"
I was a little surprised by the boys answers, but knew exactly what the girls were going to say. Especially Abby. She is ALWAYS singing that song ;)
But, I didn't want the fun to stop there, so I posted this question on my facebook page too and I have really enjoyed reading the responses.
And now, I'd love to hear which one makes the top if your list!
Hop on over and share your favorite Christmas song too.
