Good morning, kittens & dawgs! Usually, I like featuring a single artist with this weekly post but today I’m just going with the flow of things to create a dance party feel with a few Pop Christmas Songs!
Are you a traditional or modern Christmas song kind of person? Do you have an all-time favorite holiday tune?
Thank you for popping in today, Kittens & Dawgs, and Merry Christmas! Funny songs like this one always make me think of the lyrics, Jingle Bells shotgun shells rabbit got away and so I thought, why not put together a Twisted Christmas Carols edition!
Do you enjoy twisted Christmas carols? What Christmas song parodies are your favorite?
Today’s photo contribution with the SWF team of photo enthusiasts. This past Wednesday, I shared A little creek in the cove. Here’s another shot with a bit of a gray sky view. Autumn’s wardrobe was not gone on this day unlike it is in our area this year. I wonder if the hot summer or fall drought is the reason, do you know? Anywho, getting the right exposure at times like this is tricky. The sky really didn’t hold a lot of interest but the landscape certainly was pretty.
Are autumn leaves still clinging to trees in your neck of the woods or have they all fallen?
Let’s continue the fun with Friendly Fill-Ins with Annie and Ellen. Every Thursday four fun and easy blank statements are posted for us to borrow, complete, and share on our site. The point is to simply have fun linking, reading, and meeting others who enjoy this sort of thing.
Here’s my response to this week’s fill-ins:
I have a hard time finding a gift for my father-in-law. We’ve always had trouble coming up with something for both DH’s parents. They never expressed wanting anything and they nearly have everything.
I have no problem finding a gift for my children. They are the easiest to buy for because there are so many things they can use being young adults from tools to kitchen gadgets.
One of the best gifts I ever gave was the presents that I thought “this is something I would like to get”. Someone told me years ago the best guide to shopping for others is to ask, “is this something you like” and so when I buy a gift that’s the way I try to think.
One of the best gifts I ever received was my engagement ring and the promise of marriage to DH.
I’m joining Lexa in Celebrate The Small Things. Here’s my list of celebrations!
I’m celebrating…DH finally getting his official job offer letter and start date, December 12th! Right now things don’t get any better than this and I am feeling celebratory about everything!
What are you celebrating?
See what others are celebrating this week below and if you want to join the linky, then visit Lexa!
That’s a wrap for now. I will get over to visit you ASAP. DH and I want to capitalize on the last of our full days of togetherness. You’re invited to join me for Saturday Songsuasion. Until next time, have a fototastic weekend!
Welcome to My December, Kittens and Dawgs! This is my favorite time of the year. December is my birth month and is the month for my favorite holiday. Not worry, though. I won’t be doing a showdown featuring a Christmas tune. I admit I was tempted but I decided to do something different.
In this first battle of December, I’m using Linkin Park’s My December. Written by band member, Mike Shinoda, while on the road this song captures a guy’s heartache after a fight with his girlfriend and how he wants her back.
The thing I like about this somewhat new-to-me song is the music more than the lyrics.
The first contender is a very well-known artist with awesome smooth vocals with a very calming cover. Please listen to Josh Groban.
The second contender is a new-to-me discovery and their mewsic style covering My December is rather nice and soothing, which almost makes me think of Christmas. Please listen to Scala & Kolacny Brothers.
Ok, here’s the drill. Voting is open to everyone visiting. There is NO wrong vote, except if you DON’T vote. Who gets your vote, Josh Groban or Scala & Kolacny Brothers? Please tell me in comments which artist you like best and why (optional)! 😉
The fun continues with more epic battles underway and I invite you to visit the official manager of BoTB, Stephen for the update list of players. I hope you’ll join me tomorrow for a few laughs with Friday Sillies and more Friday fun stuff. I’ll leave you with yet another cover (not included in the showdown) of an unknown artist who closely matches Linkin Park. What do you think?
Welcome back, Kittens & Dawgs! Last week, I shared my photo art creation of Apple Valley Country Store. On the same day I took that picture, our plans took us to Cades Cove in the Smoky’s . Near the entrance of the 11-mile loop road is a picnic area and if you’ve been there before then you know what I’m talking about. This is where I snapped the below picture.
I remember it was a not only a gray day but a cool, damp sorta day. The day trip was still refreshing and fun. The above image reminds me of the weather we’ve had the last few days, as the November chapter of 2016 closes.
Good morning, kittens & dawgs! Let me see a show of hands, how many of y’all got out on Black Friday to shop? *smack forehead* You’re either very brave or very stupid and I’m not saying which one you belong in, either. 😂
If the crowds aren’t bad enough to drive you bonkers, then having no money by the end of the day is super depressing with me singing some of these songs!
Thank you for including me in your Monday and I’ll do my level best to respond and make return visits. 😉 I’m linking with the 🎶 party hosted by the Monday’s Music Moves Me crew and you’re welcome to come with and don’t forget to hop back for not-so Wordless Wednesday!
