Once a month I talk about what’s going on in my life at that moment with Currently posts, and then the kids get a monthly post where they get to shine; this post is where Ry gets to take over for a day each month. Hosted by Betsy and Laura, TGBTB linkup is on the last Thursday of each month if you’d like to join up too! (They have since ended the linkup..) Plus it means I get to spotlight this amazing man I have been blessed to share my life with for the past 15 years 😉 (more…)
Twas the Week of Christmas, and all through the house,
there was chaos, malarky, and a screaming spouse.
But even through all of that, a blog post was coming,
as a challenge, a promise, keyboard keys drumming.
Favorite Christmas Songs
“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.”
― Norman Vincent Peale
The Wizard of Oz is am odd little story, but this song is wonderful.
Alternative to the classic (materialistic) version.
Ry has some German heritage, whether he admits it or not it’s obvious by his last name. (his coloring as well.)
While the German language can be terrifying the translation of this lullaby is very sweet.
The countdown is on for Baby # 2 (Peanutt) I am going to spend the next few weeks sharing lullabies again, just to continue the tradition.
A monkey lullaby for our little monkey due tomorrow! I am so excited I can’t sleep! Ahhh!
Full set of verses for the lullaby.
(Also called Lullaby and Goodnight)
This is one of the main songs used by electronic lullaby machines. Classic and good.
This is one of my favorite children’s songs of all time. The fact that it’s rooted in Scripture just makes it better.
I don’t know about you, but the moon is a reassuring constant for me. It always soothes me. Hopefully this little man will find the same comfort.
To me this is traditionally a Christmas Carol, but it is such a beautiful song 8 plan to sing it to my little man once arrives
We are closing in on Bean’s entrance to the world. So until he arrives, I am recording some lullabies for myself to sing to him.
I have Irish lineage on both sides of my family, and usually identify as that if not just American mutt. This is a very traditional and old Irish lullaby that I want to sing to my little impeding joy.
So yea; it’s uber smexy; and refurbished; so cheap. And Ry is gonna get the BlackJackII phone; so he can use it when he deploys this fall. Our contract is finally up; so we get to have local numbers; hopefully AT&T won’t ask for a deposit again; but you never know. We are both really excited as our current cell phones are both in need of either TLC or a headstone. (more…)
