Day 17--Z's Rockin' Holiday Hits :)

Day 17

Today I am celebrating my "lake family".  As many of you know, I spend much of my free time in the spring, summer and fall at my family's lake house.  Our house is part of a very special community and they have been like a second family to me.  I am so blessed to have this group as a part of my life and feel closer to many of them than I do my own relatives.

Every year we have two big picnics a year where we all get together and laugh, eat great food and enjoy each others company.  Throughout the year we have campfires where my dad and S play the guitar and everyone enjoys singing and chatting.  We all love the water and many of the families have boats for tubing, skiing and wakeboarding.  There is a nightly happy hour for the over 50 crowd on the sundeck and others enjoy spending time on the beach gossiping and catching up on the days news.  I am so lucky to have these wonderful people in my life and often find myself tearing up when we all say good-bye in October.  I love them all like family and wish them all a very Merry Christmas!

Z's Top Ten Rockin Christmas Hits

Z loves Christmas!  He especially loves Christmas music (they say the apple does not fall far from the tree ;)).  He wanted to share with all of you some of his favorite Christmas songs.  We hear them at least 8 times a day but they are still a lot of fun to listen to.  So here we go :)

1.  Everybody Loves Christmas Time by his Daddy :)
2.  Step into Christmas by Elton John
3.  Feliz Navidad by Jose Feliciano
4.  Chimpmunk Song by Alvin and the Chipmunks
5.  Run Rudolph Run by Chuck Berry
6.  Little Saint Nick by the Beach Boys
7.  Hanukkah Blessings by Barenaked Ladies (yes we are not Jewish but he LOVES this song!)
8.  12 Days of Christmas by John Denver and the Muppets
9.  Jingle, Jingle, Jingle by Burl Ives
10.  O Tannenbaum by Vince Guaraldi Trio (Charlie Brown Christmas)

Solid list from Z! Has he heard God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen by the Barenaked Ladies and Sarah McLachlin? That one is way up on my list.

Shane, I like that one too! ;) I also love Josh Grobin singing O Holy Night.

Love Christmas music.
