My favorite getting-in-the-spirit Christmas music is sung by Johnny Mathis. I could sing lockstep every song he has recorded about the holidays. Notwithstanding Amy Grant, an honorable mention is Lindsey Buckingham singing "Holiday Road". It's crazy, but the only words I know are....Holiday Road. If it's good enough for Fletch-it's good enough for me.

We are a travelling family. This is well documented. In the 8 weeks we have had Benny, we have travelled back from Guatemala, flown to D.C., Flown to Denver......but we have never been in a car with him past St. Charles. I am looking forward to him meeting all of his family over the holidays, but I'm wondering how often we'll have to stop....we'll come to think of it, when I drive, I drink coffee. Benny's daddy is said to have the smallest bladder in the civilized world. B and G will probably be rolling their eyes at me.

If you have time, click over to Mike's blog (link to the right). His essay on their family Christmas history will bring tears to your eyes.

Tonight was our Christmas here on Lockett Lane. Here is a pic of our manly boy with bows in his hair. Life is wonderful. I hope you look at your respective lives to find joy. No matter what the situation.

Johnny Mathis is not bad, but in my book, you can't beat Harry Connick Jr's album entitled "When My Heart Finds Christmas." First Christmases with kids are great. Have fun man!

Great Picture! These are the sort that you drag out on your blog in 25 years and which your kids will never forgive you!

Have a great Christmas!
