Only 16 days until Christmas, people! 16 days. Are you ready? I’m not. But I’ll get there.
It’s just a tad bit more of a juggling act this year since I have all the Christmas presents stashed in our storage unit to save on space here in the basement, and will need to do some fetching to do the wrapping when both kids are in school – and maybe I’ll figure out if I still need to pick up any last minute gifts, too. Which I suppose I’d better take care of soon, eh?
Since it’s December, we’re celebrating all month long with a continuous Holiday Theme, so grab your favorite videos and come play along.
Let’s start off with another of my favorite American Idol winners – in this music video, shots of him in the recording studio are cut with photos and videos of his younger self celebrating Christmas with his family and starring in the church nativity play. So cute.
Next is a video that cracks me up every time I watch it. Who doesn’t love the Muppets?
Here they are with “Ringing Of The Bells”:
Next up are three of my favorite artists together celebrating the Christmas season on the show that made country music famous, the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee:
Give a listen to Carrie Underwood, Martina McBride and Julianne Hough with “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree”:
Next up is a fun song I usually sing to Princess Nagger if she’s acting up and precariously close to being on the Naughty List. This fun version is sung by one of my favorite bands, I bet you’ll love it, too.
Here’s Sugarland with “Nuttin’ For Christmas”:
Finally is a song that’s becoming a tradition each year to dedicate to my brother for his birthday. Today happens to be my birthday, and his birthday is Thursday, so it’s the perfect time to play this song. Happy (early) Birthday, Mikey – here’s a “Box Of Rocks” (by The Song Trust):
Enjoy your Monday!
Now on to the particulars of Monday’s Music Move’s Me:
I have the supreme honor and privilege of being a co-host with the inimitable Xmas Dolly and our musical cohorts, Callie from JAmericanSpice, Cathy from Cathy Kennedy’s Blog, and Naila Moon at Just the Stuff Ya Know.
Want to join in the fun? It’s easy – just find a tune that rocks your boat, post it and link up – don’t forget to grab Xmas Dolly…er, um, I mean her button…over at her place here. Check out Xmas Dolly’s sidebar for the random themes we sport each week – and you can always ask for a specific theme of music you like, too. Check out the other music lovahs and let’s jam!

The awesome Run DMT also hosts Music Monday (who graciously helps out with our hostessing every time we need it, and who I had the privilege of meeting in person at BlogHer ’12 – she’s even more adorable than I imagined):
