Holiday Traditions

I forgot to take pictures of the ornaments that I sent for this exchange. I did send Tonya some "Nuts and Bolts" yummy snacks -- and the recipe for them. And explained some of our traditions.

And a cd mix of my favourite holiday tunes:

1. I Believe in Father Christmas -- Greg Lake
2. Aspenglow -- John Denver
3. Winter Wonderland -- Louis Armstrong
4. Little Drummer Boy -- David Bowie and Bing Crosby
5. River -- Saran McLachlan
6. Christmas -- Blues Traveler
7. Baby It's Cold Outside -- Rod Stewart/ Dolly Parton
8. God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen/ We Three Kings -- Barenaked Ladies
9. In the Bleak Midwinter -- Holly Cole, Rebecca Jenkins, Mary Margaret O'Hara, Jane Siberry & Victoria Williams
10. The Christmas Song -- John Denver
11. Green Christmas -- Barenaked Ladies
12. I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm -- Billie Holiday
13. Do they Know It's Christmas? Band Aid
14. Maybe This Christmas -- Ron Sexsmith
15. Are You Burning Little Candle? -- Holly Cole etc.
16. Christmas Time is Here -- Sarah McLachlan
17. Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas -- Sarah McLachlan
18. The Music is You -- John Denver
19. A Holly Jolly Christmas -- Burl Ives
20. The Most Wonderful Time of the Year
21. Hanukkah Blessings -- Barenaked Ladies
(I wish that I had included "I'll be There Christmas Eve by the Ennis Sisters.... Oh, well)

(I also sent a copy of the CD "A Canadian Christmas")

And here's Lauren modeling the apron that I made (it looks way better in person -- here it looks kind of plain......)
