Music Recommendations

I know, I know, - it's still early for Christmas music. I have this rule for my own life that it is "allowed" after Halloween, but preferred to start at Veterans' Day.... but I think the weather influences my decisions each year as right now, the rain is definitely calling for a start to the cozy endorphines brought on by some good music.

So, I made a chance discovery at Target and found two CD's that I am really enjoying. They are found at their Christmas music kiosk (the kind where you can sample them and play the songs) - and it is called I'LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS - TRADITIONAL CHRISTMAS VOLUME 1 AND SILVER BELLS - TRADITIONAL CHRISTMAS VOLUME 2. Doris Day, Bing Crosby, Andy Williams, Burl Ives - all the oldies but goodies by their original artists. Very fun.

Mikayla is definitely MY daughter - she is loving the music, singing along to each song, and her favorites are mine as well. I'm loving it. This morning brought two very funny things from her mouth, here you go:

Upon listening to the McGuire Sisters sing "Frosty the Snowman" she said:
"Those girls sad a bad word, Mommy"
(Knowing immediately what she was referring to-) "No, honey, they said 'button nose' not 'butt on nose'".

"Winter Wonderland" started to play and she said:
"What is that song - it sounds like 'Frosty' but I don't think it is?"
"No, it's called 'Winter Wonderland'"
"Oh, is that what Alice listens to all the time because she lives in 'Wonderland'?"

Too Precious!

If I didn't pack up our xmas cds and put them in the attic with all the other decorations, we would listen to them year-round. I also love the classic singers and songs; Burl Ives, Nat King Cole, Bing Crosby, etc. I will check into the cds you recommended!

Any more Christmas music recommendations? Ever since living with the schillings I'd adopted your rule - waiting until after Halloween. Oh I love it - November 1st roles around and I'm ready! So, Chele and Steph - list your fav's please!
