My love for country western is obvious once you know how passionate I am about all music by Leann Rimes. I just adore her upbeat swing in this song.

I remember how mama’s back in the day would tell all the children to place their baby tooth underneath their pillows at night before falling asleep so the good beautiful “tooth fairy godmother” could replace the tooth with a coin and if you were extremely lucky you could get a whole dollar. Wow!

So I enjoyed doing the same for my own. It was so much fun to see a smile again after crying over losing a baby tooth.

So the song “All I Want for Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth” has to be the cutest….and sung here by the cutest adorable little girl Melissa Lynn.   

It also reminds me of a time when all little girls used to get dressed up wearing cute frilly dresses with bobby socks and patent leather shoes. LOL!

This song is one of the old timey ones from back when my husband and I were small children. This carol “Jingle Bell Rock” has such a snappy happy beat and gets you into the groove of Christmas for Real! You want to snap your fingers and swing and sway.

Cool is all I can say about Kenny G. He’s one of the greatest jazz musicians around. I love his holiday music.

Love Me Some Back In The Day Edwin Hawkins Choir & Tramaine Hawkins Songs

EDWIN HAWKINS

“Always With You

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2DLF2uV2_ps

There’s nothing in the world around Christmas time better than going to church to hear some good gospel music. So when ever I hear songs by Edwin Hawkins Choir and Tramaine Hawkins, it always brings me to tears. I know these songs were not only beautiful and a blessing they are so annointed.  It’s so amazing how gospel music always moves you. “Always With You” is one of my favorites, so is “A Change Has Come Over Me” and “Goin Up Yonder” Just love it, love it, love it all!

Growing up as a young kid in a big family was amazing and so I have some of the most fondest memories of us all gathering in the beautifully decorated family room on cold winter nights sipping hot cocoa and listening to old crooners like Bing Cosby singing year after year those same old tunes. I remember feeling safe, happy and loved.

“All my life I have written letters – to our mother, our relatives, a wide circle of friends and acquaintance, to my husband, to you. Correspondence has always been as necessary to my happiness as a well-cooked dinner, and I’ve found it more sustaining for its generosity: an act of charity that returned to me a hundredfold…”Delia Sherman

I’ve always loved sending and receiving personal cards and letters.  I knew things had really changed when I started to dread the mail.  Initially I wrote it off as a sign of advanced adulthood; no more childlike delight at the surprise and connection that came with a letter or card.  I came to realize, though, that my increasing distaste for the mail is really because it has been largely hijacked by the junk, advertising and bills that so outnumber…
