day 9

Put your Ipod on shuffle and list 10 songs
Because it is Christmas I am listing a couple of my favorite Christmas tunes that I have been listening too
O holy night - Josh Groban has a good version & I really wish I was there to see this (NY Rockefeller)
Glee Christmas cd all round pretty good, even some good ones to dance to with the kiddies.
If this doesn't amaze you and pump you up for the holidays I'm not sure what will- and by pump I mean "Pump it up"
Then I found this one and it is really just insane. Who does this? I wanna know. Wouldn't it be awesome to have a house like that in your neighborhood?
We went & saw this last year. It was intense. They really were awesome. If you want a totally different spin on the traditional Christmas song this is it.
My friend Maren just released this Christmas song, The King is Born it's good, go check it out.
And of course there are the classics that I am singing daily with Sadie, Rudolph, Frosty, & Jingle Bells.
Let me know some other good ones or your favorites.

Day 8

A place you have travelled

If you have been following my blog for awhile you would know that we got to live in New York City a while back. It really was the most amazing time for our family. I didn't really know what to expect when we moved there and I don't think you can really prepare or know until you go yourself and see, feel it, taste it. I honestly CRAVE that city. If it made sense there is a big part of me that would absolutely and totally LOVE to live there. I know I was only there for a short time so it's not totally legit for me to say that. BUT I am telling you there is something about it that, just draws you back and even though there is some sacrifices to live in that city, it is so worth it.
There is so much to see and do, so much history, so many people. Just thinking about New York makes me come alive and I get excited to go back.

Ryan & I both loved the city, so I know that we will go back. I also promised Sadie I would take her back when she would remember it. We all know that every good parent keeps promises that they make to their 18 month old right? Wouldn't that be the best thing ever to surprise her with on her 18th birthday? I think so.

I made Sadie her own ABC's of New York Book. Now she can act like she remembers living there. I do have to say she was a great toddler to be there with, she was awesome, cause lets face it that is not an easy city to raise kids in! It pretty much cured her poor sleeping habits, but unfortunately maybe the cause of her poor eating habits.

Day 6

A song that makes you cry

I don't consider myself a crier, so I had to think for a bit on this one. Sometimes its more the situation or feelings that bring on the tears and then the song seems to hold the emotion for me. Anyways I haven't listened to this song forever but it is a good for a cry sometimes. Jane Siberry It Can't Rain All the time. This song actually reminds me of my brother Ryan... okay now I want to cry. He died my grade 12 year, and I am so glad I have days or moments where I remember something about him or us or whatever. I first heard this song from him. It was just one from his huge alphabetized cd collection. I totally remember my friends and I admiring his cd collection, and taking some out and he knew right away the ones we took. The message just gets me, to me there is a lot of different emotions in it.

Day 7
Your favorite movie.
I wish I could think of a favorite movie. I like to watch just about any type of movie. I love sitting back with my popcorn and drink and just being entertained. However, I almost always fall asleep in movies. I rarely watch a movie more than once. That being said, I can almost guarantee no one else will say this is even on their top ten but here it is I really do love this movie
Cheaper by the Dozen

Usual Suspects -it's so been years since I remember watching this.

All the goodies from high school that I have watched too many times. Happy Gilmore, Tommy Boy, Billy Madison.
I can't be bothered to try to get these pictures uploaded but I'm sure it would've added to this post.
