Tomorrow I'll do a little dinner tour of all of our December dinner parties (another December favorite!), but tonight I'll skip ahead to one of my favorite dinner party traditions each year--when our friends, Keith and Brandi and their girls come to visit. They are some of the only friends we have that wouldn't burst out laughing when asked to sing Christmas songs together. I think I only ever asked once, umpteen years ago. Now it is just part of our wonderful December dinner.
Brandi has a beautiful voice and I make her sing for me nearly every time she comes. Just in December I make everyone join in too.
his antics and conducting energy--but Keith and Brandi were thoroughly entertained by him. Drew shows no shyness or self-consciousness of anyone giggling at him-when he is listening to music and conducting, he goes off into his own world of musical fantasy.
The Good Lord didn't bless me with a good singing voice, but he blessed me with a love of using the one I have. I love to sing. (Even though I am cringing at the memory of singing, "O Christmas Tree" with an English accent, off-key and a tad too loudly for Keith and Brandi tonight.)
I have high hopes that God will bless me for my singing efforts in this life with a beautiful voice in the next.
Now go enjoy some Christmas music. Only four more days to listen to it, by 7pm Christmas Day I don't want to hear anymore until November 1st of the next year.
