*(This was composed by Sean, and was totally 100% his idea. I in no way had anything to do with the writing in this post, including but not limited to putting the idea in his head, or telling him he had to do this. Ain't he great?! I did however add the pictures.)

OK, so I'm finally starting to get excited for Christmas. I think now that school, dance and soccer are done for the holidays I'll be able to slow down a little. And Sean will be home for Christmas on Wednesday night and gets to stay until Tuesday morning! Wahoo! That's all I need/want for Christmas!!

Anywho, I thought I would post some of my favorite Christmas songs on here (assuming I can find them) and find out what your favorites are.

So, I don't really hate Christmas. I just really like Oscar

not the original, but still funny!

I sang this in choir once, and it's been a favorite ever since

Ok, so please ignore the creepy old school music video for this next one...try to not let it distract you from the words....seriously, just close your eyes and listen to the words

I like several versions of this song. There are also several versions that I don't like - this one's pretty good

this one, and every other song by Bing Crosby

And I'll leave you with this one

Merry Christmas!
