So today has three great events:

  1. A new review of Jazzy Christmas to You II from Merry and Bright
  2. The new tradition of “Christmas Adam”
  3. We caroled today (yes, I know it’s only the 23rd…)

Here’s an excerpt of the review:

“Jazzy Christmas To You II” is another beautiful record. Jillaine gives us a variety of styles, selections, and fresh, original arrangements, nailing them all. The musicians accompanying her are tops, cats, and the bee’s knees.

Read the full review at Merry and Bright. Thank you Der Bingle!

The second great event is the start of a new tradition: Christmas Adam. For those of you confused as to what this is, don’t worry, I was confused about it, too!

My sister’s friend has four kids and they celebrate Christmas Adam, the day before Christmas Eve because we all know Adam came before Eve!

They celebrate Christmas Adam by having a “hotel night” in the living room (everyone sleeps in the living room and they watch movies like in a hotel, hence the name). For us, it’s a bit impractical to have six adults sleep in the living room, but we used to have “hotel nights” when we were little kids.

So we still have to decide what our traditions for Christmas Adam will be…right now my brother and sister are making spritz cookies (they weren’t even on my baking list yesterday). Maybe spritz cookies could be our new tradition!

In another twist of wordplay for Christmas with Adam and Eve, check out “Santa Send a Fella” from Jazzy Christmas to You!

We caroled today!

In our caroling gear!

I admit it, it was too cold to be out without a coat! Note the jingle bells in my right hand...you can't carol without jingle bells. I think it is a law.

Erik takes his caroling gear very seriously: jester hat over a BYU Christmas hat, with a Rudolph nose.
