Christmas in the Air

Did you all have a nice Thanksgiving? Colin and I had a quaint little meal, just the two of us. Don't get me wrong, there was a lot of food that we are still eating! I like Thanksgiving, but CHRISTMAS is my holiday.

The day after Thanksgiving we went to a tree farm to cut down our perfect tree. It was quite chilly-about 20 degrees-but worth it. We had some hot apple cider at the tree farm to warm up and then got some pizza on our way back. We went home and put on some Christmas music and decorated our tree. I wish I had pictures to show you! We have a blue and silver theme. Later that night we sat down with leftover caramel pecan cheesecake pie and watched How the Grinch Stole Christmas. It was a blessed day.

Do you have a favorite Christmas song you love? Here are a few of my favorites:

Peace on Earth- Casting Crowns
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas- Coldplay
The Christmas Song- Nat King Cole
It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year- Andy Williams
Little Saint Nick- The Beach Boys
Breath of Heaven- Amy Grant
Mistletoe- Colbie Caillat
O Holy Night- Josh Groban

You can listen to them on my player below if you would like. Music is what makes Christmas, Christmas. And Jesus. Above all. I can't wait to celebrate his birth in just a short month. I am filled with cheer just thinking about what this next month will bring!


  1. Your tree cutting day sounds wonderful!! My family used to do that, but my husband has always had a fake tree and loves them so for the past couple of years we have just put the same one up over and over. Maybe next year I can convince him to take me to a tree farm :)

  2. Yea for Tree Farms and Apple Cider!

    As for the fav Christmas tune...O Holy Night is my absolutel favorite! Well, and the entire ELVIS Christmas album :)

    Have a wonderful Christmas!

  3. I love reading your blog. We have so much in common. We have a blue and silver themed tree too. I have been listening to Christmas music for a week or so now. It drives my DH crazy.

    Have a wonderful Holiday season.

  4. BRRRR! 20 degrees??!! I wouldn't be able to go outside :) So glad you had a nice Thanksgiving. I love Christmas too! You'll have to take a picture of the tree and post. I like Jingle Bell Rock and Mary Did You Know for Christmas songs.
