Lately, our days have been merry and bright

Some of the moments that made my holiday...

Merry:
Listening to new Christmas albums...James Taylor At Christmas; Glee:The Christmas Album,Vol. 2; The Sing Off:Songs of the Season, and yes, Justin Bieber's Under the Mistletoe.

The one that made my days most merry was Travis Cottrell's Ring the Bells. I especially love Jesus Saves.

"The redeemed will sing forever, Jesus saves."

I love (and most of the time, prefer) my accapella, congregational singing, Church of Christ background, but listening to Travis Cottrell makes me wish we had a full choir and orchestra every once in a while.

Bright:
Making coffee, tea, and hot chocolate in the Keurig my parents gave us.

Decked:
Wearing my new Lisa Leonard necklace from Honey. I. love. it. I have one charm for each of the kids and one with our anniversary.

Warm:
Watching, not actually getting out in, the snow. We spent Christmas with Honey's family, and, it snowed a little bit. The snow on the cars and most of what is on the driveway is what fell during one day and night. Crazy, huh?



Jolly:
Adding this year's Santa picture to my book.


Festive:
Reading Dash and Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan.

Twinkled:
Tubing with Honey and the kids.


Blessed:
Visiting Mema and Popa. I love that my children are able to know and will remember three of their great grandparents.

I was very tempted to buy Travis Cottrell's "Ring the Bells", but decided I had spent enough money in December...it's residing in my saved for later in my Amazon cart!

I like your categories and lists for the holidays!
