Christmas songs that aren't {but should be}

While not officially "Christmas songs," they certainly tell the Christmas story! Enjoy.

"How Many Kings?" by Downhere. "All for me...all for you."

"How He Loves Us" by David Crowder Band. Christmas is truly all about the loooove. Let this one sink in, sisters. His affections are truly great for us.

Less talk, more pictures

We are just loving life these days! Besides being in a new house, the perfect Arizona winter weather, the boys being at wonderful ages to really enjoy the festivities, my nephew being born, my grandmother being in town...we are feeling extraordinarily blessed!!

So rather than yack about it, here are some of my favorite pictures from this holiday season so far.

Andrew telling Santa what he wants for Christmas at my friend Chrissy's annual Santa party.

Our family at the party.

The hubs and me, headed out for his company Christmas dinner. It was a fantastic, and much-needed, night out.

My mom and I fulfilling our new goal: to cook and bake together more often!

The boys decorating their gingerbread train on a rainy day (before it collapsed and we ate it).

The JOY pillow I scored at our church women's ministry Christmas party. Yes, I actually took this right off the host's couch. She insisted. Joy is, after all, my WORD for 2011.

My mom and grandmother toasting with the monogrammed wine glasses I got them. Andrew joined in, too.

We're just loving every moment of this holiday season!

More to come....
