My first real family Christmas moment of 2011...

Other than the pumpkin chocolate chip cookies my wife made for me over the weekend I can attest to a real family Christmas moment already this year...courtesy of the new Michael Buble album....

I was getting it all ready to upload to MCR and I was discovered by my 15 year old daughter, Allie, who is **obsessed** as many teens are with Mr. Buble. She quickly stole the headphones, texted her 25 year old sister (another Buble aficionado), grabbed her little 13-year old sister who in turned grabbed Sandy....

and they swooned...song after song....I can attest that Mr. Buble's album will be a hit.

Now I just hope to hear it....

Granted Mr. Buble is a great singer, but I love the idea of pumpkin chocolate chip cookies! Is there any chance we can get the recipe?
