O Holy Night

As many of you may know, O Holy Night is one of my favorite Christmas songs of all time.  I am constantly searching for wonderful new recordings.  I have several that I love.  So, I thought I would give y'all a few of my favorite versions to listen to.  Enjoy.

Carol of Joy

I just was blessed to attend the First Presidency Devotional for Christmas this past Sunday.  It truly helped to put me into the Christmas mood.  What a wonderful time of year this is when we can focus on the things that are truly important.  That great and glorious story of Christ's birth.  As I think of the great celebrations to come, it always makes me miss Christmas in Europe.  Anyway, I hope you'll indulge me in a little Christmas moment:

As Seen On Facebook pt. 2

So, As I was doing my usual search of facebook, I found this little gem.  As probably few of you know, I spent two years with the Oregon Marching Band pit and 2 years in the pit in HS.  I played the xylophone/marimba/vibraphone/bass synth for these groups.  This guy made his own instrument from PVC piping, and place this great little medley.  Enjoy!

Diet Update
