Rockin and Snoozin to Jingle Bells

On Sunday afternoon, Cuppa and I were left to babysit for a few hours while all the kids made a Costco run. Cuppa took care of Zach and some meal preparation while I tended to Nikki Dee outside. She was content to enjoy swinging for quite a long time. She chatted some, we counted some, and I began to sing some. I sang Jingle Bells, and, oddly enough, my rough voice didn't keep her awake. She must have dozed out in the fresh air for at least 20 minutes, perhaps a bit longer, before rejoining us.

Although it was I who was singing Jingle Bells on Sunday, the version in the background is by Boney M. This is her favourite Christmas song. She listens to it over and over.

Just a note: YouTube is smart enough to recognize this music as Jingle Bells, by Boney M, licensed by Sony. I presume that posting a short clip like this is okay, but who knows if it will still be there when this blog goes to press in the morning.

Diane above took my line.

She is adorable. She could have a worse favourite song, say, "I saw mommy kissing Santa Clause".

AC, Kids don't care if we have a rough day or if we sing off-key when they are young. This begins to change about the time they reach grade one. Beautiful video of ND.

Hope Cuppa will make you a few sugar cookies for Christmas.
