Nash Vegas Baby

So we drove up to Nashville today. It was a nice drive with fun singing in the car. Went to see Diana DeGarmo at the Listening Room Cafe. It was soo much fun. Lots of cool people. Here's a pic!

I feel like I'm about to lose my voice due to sinus drainage. Pray I don't!!

See ya

Boxing Day

"Boxing Day" - Relient K

Take it all down
Christmas is over
Do not despair
But rather be glad
We had a good year
Now lets have another
Remembering all the good times that we had

Oh no more lights glistening
No more carols to sing
But Christmas it makes way for spring

The hearts of men
Are bitter and weathered
As cold as the snow
That falls from above
But just for one day
We all came together
We showed the whole world that we know how to love

Oh no more lights glistening
No more carols to sing
But Christmas it makes way for spring
Oh no more lights glistening
No more carols to sing
But Christmas it makes way for spring

Oh remember that Christmas
It makes way for spring

Lyrics from Relient K's song "Boxing Day" from the album "Let It Snow, Baby... Let It Reindeer"

A Baby Changes Everything

Here is the story of Christmas. Faith Hill did a great song with this song. To me it is THE Christmas song of 2008!!

Don't forget to give thanks to the Lord today for all that He did and continues to do for us! Hallelujah!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!

Christmas Eve

I can't believe it, but I actually went Christmas shopping today after I said yesterday that I wouldn't!! I ended up remembering some last minute things that I needed to get. I had to get Lindsey a trashcan and Mama a gift card to the mall.

The mall was worse today than it was yesterday so luckily I didn't need to get a lot.

I was gonna print Maw-Maw a picture for Christmas and I went to 4 Wal-Marts and all of their photo machines were tore up!! So I didn't get it but I told her I would get it after Christmas when I could find a machine that worked. haha

But it all ended up great b/c we had a great rest of the day with family. We had Christmas with Mama's family for lunch and it was sooo much fun!! I got a GAP gift card! Some musical decorations for my room in my apartment and a Target gift card. And me and Macey and Hannah played a lot. I love my girls. It was so great to be with family. I love them so much!!

Then we went up to Gail's and had Chili with them and some of their friends. It was nice cuz the twins came too and I got to play with them. They are so cute and smart!!

Then it was home to wrap more presents and get ready for Christmas Day!!

So even though shopping was crazy the past two days and it's hot and raining, and I wanted to eat ice cream instead of drinking Hot Chocolate, it is so great to be home with family cuz so many don't have that at Christmas.

I praise the Lord that He has allowed me to be with my family at Christmas for 20 years and counting!!

I also thank God for the reason we celebrate Christmas. For sending Jesus into this world for us!! Thank You Lord!!

Here's a special gift from me to whoever may read this tonight. Here are a couple of songs from TRUTH's Final Christmas Concert. It features Melissa Greene, Anthony Evans, and Deidra Hughes who you may recognize if you're familiar with Christian music.

Enjoy!!

Merry Christmas!!

CRAZY CHRISTMAS CRAMMING!!!!

Every year my mom does all of her Christmas shopping at the last minute. Last week I was shopping ever day either getting things for me to give or I was with mom. So I was totally over it by the end of the week.

Then on the day before Christmas Eve EVERY year, she will remember like a million things that she has to do and get before Christmas Eve. So today we had to go shopping again.
Now don't get me wrong, I LOVE the hustle & bustle of Christmas, but I was over it before today and I didn't want to go back.

But I did, b/c Mama needed me and I couldn't let her down. So we went and it was a nightmare. The people at the mall were nuts. I got pushed twice by the crazy old ladies. I got run into like a million times walking through the place. It was just NUTS. But I guess it was fun overall.

So finally after all of the fighting with the people at the mall and me and Mama fighting with each other we got done and left.

We went by to see Maw-Maw for a little while then got groceries for tomorrow.

When we got home it was wrapping, cleaning, cooking, and now this. I am exhausted.

Tomorrow is Mama's side of the family Christmas at Joely's house. It is ALWAYS an experience so it should be fun :):)

Here's a pic from today.




Merry Christmas!!

Graham Family Christmas, Worthy Party, and Home Alone

So tonight was my Dad's side of the family's Christmas.
Last year was not what it should have been because of a family quarrel. Well, this year everybody agreed to be together. So we had our party over at Nanny's last night and it went as well as it could have gone. There was obvious tension, but overall I think it was a HUGE step and I am so thankful for that.
I think that is enough detail on that note.
BTW I love Steph's pepperoni rolls!!

Then I went to the Worthy's annual caroling party. It was during the family thing. So when I got home I heard the caroling and went and found them and caroled for the rest of the time. Then it was back to the Worthy's for social time. I like to say that their Caroling part is THE social event of the season in Eclectic. LOL

Finally it was over to Jamie's house with Jamie, KD, and Anna to watch Home Alone. It was great!! We had hot chocolate and yummy cookies. KD and Jamie passed out about halfway through the movie.

It was a great time to be with family and friends last night and I am so thankful for special times!!

Here's a couple of pics!!

Tomorrow I've gotta go shopping some more with MOM!! I dread it b/c I went shopping 5 days in a row last week so I am totally over it!!

Merry Christmas!!
