we wish you a Merry Christmas!

Since my singing is in demand, I realize that I really don't know the lyrics to a lot of songs and nursery rhymes just ain't cutting it for Miss E. When Emma wants more of my golden voice, the only songs I can think of at the moment are Christmas songs. It is funny how when I sing them I am transported back to my own childhood and feel that Christmas magic that you tend to lose in your late teens. One of the many joys of having a child is the ability to be transported back in time and relive wondrous moments. The only difference is with age you are granted the capacity to hold onto those magic moments. I can only imagine that I must have uttered the same "wows!" and held my mouth open a little longer just as Miss E did when she saw her first real, live horse or her first snowman or used glitter or consumed her first cupcake.

  1. Or won her first arm wrestling competition...or fired her first gunshot...or terrorized her first small Mexican village...or drank her very fist glass of top shelf tequila.
    Yes. Those are the moments. Those moments that make Emma go "Wow!!"
