Between Mr. and I, we specialize in "less well known." So yes, dozens of our favorites are not well known. Between 1999 and 2008, we compiled ten annual CDs of funny/very old/rare Christmas recordings to send to our friends, and we collected quite a bit of unusual stuff. The 1400 on my iPhone don't include our LPs and cassettes that haven't been digitized.

But our collection is nowhere near the size of RadioJonD's! His is legendary!

Got some vanilla eggnog and Sugar Cookie Pop Tarts when we went grocery shopping last night. Oh, yeah, it's getting closer!

My girls are all off from work today. That doesn't happen very often. The plan is to have lunch at The Cheesecake Factory and then go to the mall. I'm hoping to pick up a few Christmas gifts while we're there. I am excited and so ready to start shopping!
We'll meet up with my husband later for dinner, I'm going to make tacos and enchiladas for dinner!
I hope everyone is well and has a very happy Saturday!!!
Did you say enchiladas? I LOVE enchiladas, one of my favorite Mexican dishes. What time is dinner?


Have fun with your girls today.

I had to work an hour and a half on friday but that was fine. I headed out to walmart and bought 2 boxes of old school lights. I have always wanted to put them on my house. Well I cant do a lot this year because hydro is going up this month yet again (sheesh). So I pulled out the ladder, loaded up the Christmas Vacation theme on my phone and started decorating. The Santa is the newest addition to my Christmas collection this year! YES I set my timer and watched them light up last night. My Wife thinks its crazy but I saw all the cars slow down to look. It was simply AWESOME. Here are the pictures!




Awesome, I can't wait to start my decorating. Looks great!!!

Hellooo everyone!!! Sipping some gingerbread tea and I have some chocolate chip cookies baking away.. mmm! All of the boys of the house are out at the park so I am here, basking in Christmas glory!! Loving Kringle Radio!!!

We had a lovely family hike today.. fall foliage is peaking and it was just beautiful. We went on a few different trails than our usual and saw some beautiful birds and deer. The kids had a blast and my city born and bred husband is finally learning to enjoy the great outdoors! Lovely morning.

This afternoon, my husbadn is making himself some wings on the grill (likely it's last hurrah!) and we'll probably light a fire outside. The kids love to do that (so do I!!)

Tomorrow is Byer's Choice GRAND ILLUMINATION! If the timing is right and we get home from my aunt and uncle's early enough, we will go! THey light all of their outdoor lights tomorrow and it's just beautiful and so close to our house!!

Loving that everyone is getting ready to decorate or already doing it!!! My fall stuff is comign down slowly but surely and I did a major cleaning yesterday. I can't wait to start bringing my beloved Christmas bins up tomorrow!!

I had an idea that I was going to post in the Thanksgiving forum but I wasn't sure if anyone would participate. If you think that'd you join in, let me know and I will go post it in there. I didn't want to start it if no one was going to jump in!

I know a lot of people do this online or at the dinner table - every day during the month of November, you're supposed to say something that you are thankful for. It can be big or small, serious or not so serious - anything that you appreciate. It's such a great way to bring some positivity into your day! I figured we could all post daily and say something that we are thankful for, or we could just edit our original posts and add to it each day.

Plus it's a fun way to lead up to Christmas....by the time we're done it'll be December!
