Amy . . .

What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising

Thursday 13


Thirteen Things about Amy

I was going to do 13 restaurants that have helped me become fluffier (I thought that was better word than tub o lard) but I decided to do something a bit more holidayish so here are 13 Christmas songs I love
1. O Holy Night- I judge every Christmas cd by this one. I prefer slow versions, like Josh Grobin but Sandy Patti and Josh Berry all have good ones.
2. Have yourself a merry little Christmas- my favorite non religious song
3.the christmas song that says woop-tee-doo in it. I am not sure of the title but it always makes me laigh
4.O Come All Ye Faithful- Favorite versions now done by Third Day and Steven Curtis Chapman
5.Happy Birthday Jesus- Younger cousin sang this when she was 5..Its precious if you have heard it
6.Christmas Shoes- just wonderful. Book and movie are good too
7.The First Noel - to me, the easiest Christmas song to play on the piano
8.Deck the Halls - my mom loves the version from The Christmas story where the Chinese waiters sing it for the family
9.Love Has Come -from the first Amy Grant Christmas cd- I just think of me and my brother and sister when I hear this one
10.Where are you Christmas? I love this song. Its from the Grinch movie by Faith Hill
11.We're not that far from Bethlehem- this is from the Point of Grace cd
12.Breath of Heaven- I think even the title is just beautiful
13.Mary Did you Know? MIchael English had a great version

You can hear a great song by Third Day on this site. Just skip the song playing on the audio thing. Also, check out www.thechristopherfamily.blogspot.com for another Christmas song related to adoption

I can hear them in my head now. :)

If I wake up my kids humming away, I'll tell them it's your fault! :)

It's a great list. One of my favorites is 'Mary Did You Know' also.
My TT is up on why I don't have a cat. Come visit if you get the chance.
Merry Christmas!

I would add What Child is This ~ I don't know why but I just love that song! :)

Great list! I should probably do a Christmas Themed list next week ~ I feel like a scrooge because I didn't feel up to it this week! :)

Happy Thursday!

Those are wonderful & lovely songs on your list. I love El Divo's "The Lord's Prayer "(Our Father) song on their album.
I have my firs T13 up. It is a list of my dream places to visit. It could be a christmas wish list ,too.

Sparky Duck said...

Oh Holy Night is the best hands down, though sorry I hate hate hate Christmas Shoes. Im depressed enough on my own I guess.

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas tops my list of favourite christmas songs. It just melts my heart. I wish for each & every one a merry "little" Christmas!

alisonwonderland said...

#4 is one of my favorite Christmas hymns. #12 and #13 are terrific songs; i have amy grant and gladys knight versions of "Breath of Heaven", and a donny osmond version of "Mary, Did You Know?". i'm not at all familiar with #6 or #11; i'll have to check those out.

happy TT!

Shelley said...

Great list...I wish I was in the Xmas spirit, but well...I always get a little Bah Humbug during the holiday season.

Amy said...

I love Mark Lowery singing "Mary, Did You Know?" Did you know he wrote it? Great Songs!

Carol said...

Oh, yes. Carols are very, very good!

Cyndi said...

Jenny Ryan said...

I like "fluffy". I have friends who also use "being a buttery woman".

Norma said...

Lots of good memories in this post.

My TT is up.

Danielle said...

O Come all ye faithful hs always been one of my favorites, even as a child.

I really like the little drummer boy too...some version by a female (I think) is the best.

And the whole Season of Love Cd by 4Him, especially 'Strange way to save the world"

s@m said...

My favourite's "I want a hippopotamus for Christmas" LOL, it always makes me laugh!

Happy TT!

elementaryhistoryteacher said...

My TT is a Pearl Harbor remembrance.
