14 Days Till Christmas

Remember to take a moment to enjoy the season.  You are especially lucky if you can see the world through a child’s eye at this time.

Last night the kids and I were traveling to church.  I made sure to leave a little early so that we had time to drive by a few houses lighted up with Christmas lights.

I simply enjoyed the ride listening to my son.

“Look look over there, Christmas lights!”

“Mommy, Mommy, look the house more Christmas lights!”

“Bella look see the Christmas lights!”

“Bella look now they are over there, do you see them?”

We were listening to a Christmas station and The Little Drummer Boy came on.  I started singing along and shortly after I started, Oliver said.  “Stop Mommy, no signing, I sing it”.

And even though he hadn’t really heard much of the song, he tried to sing “Pa rum pum pum pum”.  After a little while I forgot I wasn’t allowed to sing, and started signing along again.  I got a quick response.

“No Mommy, you don’t sing, I sing it”.

Besides listening to music in the car, we have also been singing a lot at home and getting out our instruments.  It’s an activity the whole family enjoys, especially when we are singing Christmas songs.

Little Drummer Boy
Come they told me, pa rum pum pum pum
A new born King to see, pa rum pum pum pum
Our finest gifts we bring, pa rum pum pum pum
To lay before the King, pa rum pum pum pum,
rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum,
So to honor Him, pa rum pum pum pum,
When we come.
Little Baby, pa rum pum pum pum
I am a poor boy too, pa rum pum pum pum
I have no gift to bring, pa rum pum pum pum
That's fit to give the King, pa rum pum pum pum,
rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum,
Shall I play for you, pa rum pum pum pum,
On my drum?
Mary nodded, pa rum pum pum pum
The ox and lamb kept time, pa rum pum pum pum
I played my drum for Him, pa rum pum pum pum
I played my best for Him, pa rum pum pum pum,
rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum,
Then He smiled at me, pa rum pum pum pum
Me and my drum.
