I never met a Christmas carol I didn’t like.
I was raised on O Holy Night and Little Town of Bethlehem and Sleigh Ride with Amy Grant’s “yooo hooo.”
This year’s Christmas playlist has over 75 songs that are on rotation in my car. I sing them every day. Everywhere. At the top of my lungs. Sometimes I even roll down the window to add a little chill in the air to the mix.
Last week I was right in the middle of the chorus of one of my favorite new songs “I hear the angels singing” by the Sidewalk Prophets, complete with choreography and a drum solo on my steering wheel—-when my oldest twin, Westleigh, turned to me and rolled her eyes.
“Mom, you are so extra,” she said.
I paused the playlist with a question in my eyes. “Extra?” I said. “What does that mean?”
“You know,” she giggled. “A lot. Over the top. All the things.”
I can’t help it. I’m extra.
You, too? Oh good. Come sit by me. 🙂
PS I might be extra, but my projects aren’t. Want some simple fall with a side of easy? Here are some simple fall projects you can finish in an afternoon (just click on the links to take you to the projects).
