It's that Time of Year

Yep. It's that time of year again.

When Blake and I start arguing every time James Taylor's Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas comes on the radio.  He's convinced that James Taylor has the best Christmas song voice, while I'm convinced that --while I agree that he has a fabulous voice -- his Christmas songs are made for the depressing part of a chick flick.  For the scene when the protagonista is wandering down a drizzly, Christmas-light-adorned street alone, cuing flash-backs of a past romance.  You know, those ones.

Who's with me?

It's also the time of year when Blake loves Tree more than he loves Me.  But that's ok.  At least he's now enamored of an inanimate object other than football. (Join me in a collective sigh of relief that Fantasy Football season is almost over).

Anyhow.  We had a great Thanksgiving with Blake's family.  Lots of food.  Lots of movies.  Lots of kiddos.

In fact, here's a picture from the weekend to prove we were having fun...even in the freezing cold anticipation of family photos.


  1. I 100% agree with YOU about James Taylor. That song does sound depressing. I also think Karen Carpenter Christmas songs sound depressing too. She sounds like she's by herself singing with a bottle of booze.

    And what do you think about the Christmas Shoes song??? I HATE HATE it! So many people think I don't have a heart because I don't like that song. Christmas songs are supposed to be happy not about moms dying!

  2. Blake wins twice in my book. James Taylor is awesome any time of the year. AND I'm dragging my dear hubby to not only get a live tree this year but to DRIVE FAR AWAY AND CUT IT. Maybe Blake can sub for him... ideas ideas.

  3. I never thought about James Taylor Christmas music that way...but now that you mention it, you're SO right!! ha ha! You may have just ruined it for me, but at least I got a good laugh out of your post. :)

  4. You guys look great in that picture! I must see the final one when you have them!

  5. I do like this picture very much
