Okay. Last night Jeff and I were driving home from Mellow Mushroom and having one of our "deep" conversations while listening to Christmas music. I commented that Gene Autry's Up on the Housetop was one of my favorites. He dryly said it was one of his "top five" favorites. I then asked him what were his other four. Well, of course, he really didn't have four others. He probably never dreamed I'd really ask what they were. He was just pacifying me in my "deep" conversation. I was able to pull a few out of him. It made me curious though. What are your top five favorite Christmas songs? Here are mine. I have way more than five. But here are my top ones. In no particular order. The one I mentioned above by Gene Autry. Me and Crystal, who is my sister that is three years younger than me, used to listen to that on an album when we were kids. We listened to that over and over. Let it Be Christmas by Alan Jackson. Christmastime by Vince Guardildini (or however you spell it) better known as the Charlie Brown Christmas song. Christmas Eve in Sarajevo by Trans Siberian Orchestra. Santa Baby by Eartha Kitt. The Little Drummer Boy by David Bowie and Bing Crosby. Now, there's a combination for ya.

I've had to turn on the AC in the house the past two days. It's not feeling much like Christmas outside. I think it's gonna turn cooler next week. Hopefully. It's just so cloudy and dreary. Got a little more work to do and then I think I'm gonna take a little break till after Christmas. I'm going back out shopping maybe tonight to try and finish up. Just a couple more things to get. I need to get the boys Santa Claus out and look through it to make sure I've got an even amount for both of them. We bought them bows back in September for them to go bow hunting when the season opened. That was gonna be their Christmas present early. Yeah, right. They suckered me right into that one! But what am I gonna do? They're my kids. They're still getting plenty. Jeff's probably going to kill me when he sees it all. Oh, well.

Tomorrow is the party at Ethan's school. I'm going to post some pictures. Then this Sunday we have our Kimball Family Christmas with the family from south Georgia. I'll put some pictures from that too. I'm loving this blogging stuff. I want to get good. I want to put a calendar. I want to put titles. I want to do all the cool stuff you do Joyce! You're the bomb!

Hey, and don't forget to let me know what your favorite Christmas songs are.

Y'all have a great day!

Kelly.... for some comments like I did at the top of my site I went to : Then you copy and paste the code under the picture you like. Then in blogger go to the Layout section, Add a gadget, HTML, and paste it in that section. You can move it around to wherever you want after that. Also when you click "add a gadget" to the left of that site is titles of all sorts you can find stuff to copy and paste into your site! Pretty cool stuff. Let me know if you need help. Joyce
