And The Winner of The Snowman IS

Sunday, October 11, 2009

************This is going to be so much fun hearing about everyone's favorite Christmas music...There have already been a few responses tonight and I have enjoyed each of them. Tonight, I am listening to an old one by Kenny Rogers...Christmas in America along with a great Michael W. Smith one, and then a little Kirk Franklin...How's that for a contrast...After everyone posts, I will try to make a list of all the favorites...

This was a fun giveaway...and so many comments.....I hope the person that wins, really loves this little snowman.......He needs a HOME!!! AND THE WINNER IS MEGAN at ITALLWORKEDOUT
Stop by and visit her blog. Her profile says she is a PICU nurse and those nurses have blessed our lives in the last few years as two grandsons have spent time in the NICU.
I want to have lots of holiday giveaways and bless many bloggers.....so stay tuned and keep checking the blog...
This will be the perfect post for you to tell me your FAVORITE HOLIDAY CD. I will leave this post open until Friday night and then have Parker do another drawing from just comments on THIS POST!
Send a new person to the Christmas blog and I will add your name twice...Nothing hard...I want my giveaways to BE EASY! I had an email from another blogger that said she thought I had SO many readers and followers because I gave so much away! Hey, I will be glad to be known for GIVING, though I am not sure she meant it as a compliment.
This is an absolutely GORGEOUS TREE SKIRT...It could be used as a table topper or a tree skirt.....and it NEEDS a HOME. The picture really does not do it justice, it is even more beautiful.....and fabulous material...

I got Joy To The World the Newest Faith Hill CD last year, I love her.. and . loved this CD.
This season I am sure I will have a different favorite.

Red Writing said...

My very favorite Christmas CD is Amy Grant. I am not sure exactly what it is called but it's at least 5 years old, probably more. It is a classic and what I use to get in the MOOD for Christmas.

SarahMerritt said...

I have 3 I love the Josh Groban Christmas cd, Jessica Simpson's Christmas cd, and The Jars of Clay Christmas Cd! I am looking forward to a great Christmas with lots of new family traditions of our very own!!!

I liked you teresa before you started giving anything away!!! I started on your other blog before I knew you even had giveaways. I hardly even enter most giveaways, I pretty much like blogging because of the fantastic people I meet. Some people just like to be sour grapes!!! Congrats to the winner!!! Have great night Teresa!! Hugs Jennifer

Can't name a favorite CD or album (I'm old enough to have records, 8tracks, cassettes and CD's), but my all time favorite Christmas song is O Holy Night, it just tells the story with such majesty and power. I too started on your other blog and hope I am your Grammy Girlfriend.

If I have to choose just one...
The Carpenter's Christmas Album. It's not Christmas to me until I hear Karen Carpenter singing I'll be Home For Christmas, Merry Christmas Darling, and Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. What a voice the world lost!

Laura said...

WOW. I spent the holidays last year with my husband in South Korea. I TOTALLY missed this (A Baby Changes Everything) song!!! Simply amazing!
This year we're in Japan and rely totally on iTunes for any music--and it's hard to keep up with what's new in the States!!! It's a tad bit sad to know I won't have an entire radio station dedicated to Christmas songs in a few weeks!!! :)

Favorites--not sure if I can name a CD, but my fav traditional song is "Do you hear what I hear" and my fav contemporary is "MAry did you know" (although . . . it's in competition with "How many kings" :))

Have a great week!

Mimmy said...

My favorite favorite Christmas CD's cover everything from the absolutely ridiculous to the absolutely divine. Our family likes Alvin and the Chipmonks Christmas CE's because Mama played their old vinyl records all the time. That is the ridiculous. For the divine, Pat and I prefer Anne Murray Christmas CD's. You can feel her faith through the music. Our first date was to one of her concerts and we've either talked on the phone or been together everyday since.

Now that I've given you our life history through Christmas music it's time for me to go to bed. It's been a long day and I've got a bunch to do tomorrow. Hopefully I'll get a post done.

Have a super week and
God Bless,
Mimmy

P.S. I sure could use that tree skirt. Right now I'm using two green table toppers.

Rebekah said...

Oh I love that you have give a way's!!! I wanted to have a give a way on my blog but I was told that it would be silly and pointless to give anything away. Plus, what I want to give away nobody would probably want. :(

I LOVED that snow man. OK so Im putting in my little comment for the pretty tree skirt. :)

Carrie said...

I love Mercy Me's Christmas album...it has traditional Christmas songs, but also has a lot of fun with the sillier ones, too!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

The Mini - Maker said...

My favorite Christmas CD is
Christmas Classics - sung by celebrities

My fav. Christmas song is either:

The Christmas Shoes
The First Noel
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas (the Judy Garland version... since I'm her #1 fan, lol)

The Real Me! said...

Congrats to the winner of my snowman LOL!
That tree skirt is beautiful Teresa. Simply gorgeous! I wouldn't want to put presents on it it's so pretty. LOL Though my kids might think otherwise!
Blessings,
Kim

Shari said...

OH my fave is the Beach Boys Christmas CD.

SusanD said...

I so need a tree skirt and that one is gorgeous. Hoping you pick me! lol Blessings, SusanD

sherri said...

Thank you for your generosity- I hope I win this one! It's beautiful! My favorite holiday Cd is Mariah Carey's MERRY CHRISTMAS, Her rendition of "Jesus,What a wonderful CHild" gets my blood pumping everytime!

Lee Laurie said...

My favorite Christmas CD is Amy Grant's "Breath of Heaven". I love that song and my daughter is singing it this year at her Stage band concert at her college. I can't wait to hear her sing it in front of all of those people. This will be her first time to sing with the Stage Band.

That tree skirt is beautiful and I'm sure that it looks even prettier in person.

Sarah said...

Amy Grant, A Christmas to Remember - I LOVE that CD!!

RCUBEs said...

By your giving and blessing others, I pray many will come to know Christ's love because of that act...I came by to thank you for cheering me up yesterday with your visit. It means a lot. God bless you sister Teresa.

Pam said...

I love Christmas music too much to choose only one. Let's see, of course the classic CD's with the old favorites like Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree..., Kenny G, Reba, Amy Grant, Celine Dion, Mariah Carey... And, of course, growing up - we couldn't decorate without playing Elvis' Christmas Album.

Diana said...

I guess I would have to say my favorite is Selah's "Rose of Bethlehem." My favorite song would probably have to be "Oh Holy Night."

Congrats to Megan.

Rachelle said...

I have a ton of Christmas CDs, but my favorites last year was an old one from Amy Grant, sorry, don't have the title of it. And the other favorite of mine last year was Celine Dion's "These Are Special Times". And just like someone else already said, I'm sure I'll get a new favorite this year! What I really like doing is taking all my Christmas CDs and making my own mix of all my favorite songs. Yay Christmas!

Elaine said...

I wish I bought Christmas cd's :( I have XM radio, and I turn on the Christmas channels, the day after Thanksgiving and they don't come off! With all of the choices on XM- I rarely buy Cd's- can I still be entered :)

Alex and Jill said...

It's so hard for me to pick just one fave! I love Amy Grant, Harry Connick and Bing Crosby...just to name a few! :)

Jane In The Jungle said...

OK Casting Crowns for reason previously mentioned but my all-time, play-all-the-time is Michael Crawford...and I play it LOUD!!

Nichole said...

My favorite Christmas CD is The Time Life Treasury of Christmas - Holiday Memories. It has such a great mix of music - everything from Nat King Cole to The Chipmunks!

I love, love, love your blog and would read even if you didn't have giveaways!

Lacey said...

Christmas to me is any of the Amy Grant CD's. Her First is my favorite. I also love Burl Ives for Christmas too.

Gram said...

I have a couple favorites. I love the Carpenters Christmas album, but also love Bing Crosby's White Christmas.

Gretta said...

As a piano player, I love Lorie Line's "Traditions of Christmas" CD. However, there are lots of contemporary Christian music artists that I love listening to their Christmas CD's as well.

Jess said...

Oh my...I have alot of favs...mainly country singers...

Martina McBride
Alan Jackson
Brad Paisley
Carrie Underwood

Thanks for visiting my blog! :) My fave Christmas song would have to be "We Need A Little Christmas". It brings me back to my childhood,and lots of good Christmas memories... which are important to me, since my dad passed away a few weeks ago. Great guy.
My favorite Christmas album? There was one with that same song on it from my childhood - couldn't name the album if I had to, but it had the LIttle Drummer Boy and What Child Is This and a lot of oldies (since it was back in the 70's...):)

Karen said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog, and for the lovely compliments. I'm visiting yours today, and I love it! I am a big fan of Christmas too. My favorite Christmas songs are from the olden days sitting around my grandmothers record player by the fire... Nat King Cole, Bing Crosby, Burl Ives...

The tree skirt is beautiful! Love the rich deep colors of winter...

And, looks like I'm your 200th follower :-) - Karen

This is so fun, but I am like most of the rest....waaaay to many favorites to choose just one! When I was younger, my mom used to listen to Kenny and Dolly's Christmas CD all the time. So, now that my family is living in Texas, we drive back home (13 hours)to Kentucky. Before we get in the car, I always call my mom and my sister and put the phone by the CD player with "I'll Be Home with Bells On" right before we leave!!! We all get excited because we only get to see eachother a couple of times a year! :) (Thanks again for stopping by my blog!)

I have lots & lots of favorites....but Andy Williams is the best.

Maybe I'll go listen to it now. hehe

klg0816 said...

Thanks for visitng my blog! I appreciate the comment. As for my favorite Christmas album, well there are two that immediately come to mind. One of my favorite's is Josh Groban's "Noel", the other is Alabama's first (I think) Christmas album. The latter is a sentimental favorite.

pam said...

Winter Song is my favourite, I have it playing in the kitchen for the whole month of December!

thanks, for inviting me over!

Melanie said...

thanks for stopping by my blog! You have a lovely blog and I've enjoyed glancing at your work. My daughter was born the day after Christmas and as her third year approaches, I can already see that she is going to be a Christmas fan!

My fave CD is Michael Crawford's Christmas CD

Genny said...

How fun! My favorites? So hard to pick, but I love The First Noel. And Faith Hill's song A Baby Changes Everything makes me cry!

Denise said...

I love the Christmas CD by Amy Grant, it has another tender Tennessee Christmas on it. I love that song.

Leann said...

Too funny! I was just listening to my Alvin & The Chipmunks CD in the car on my way to work. Love it, but can't say that it's my favorite because I love all Christmas music.

So glad that I found you!

Please stop by The Old Parsonage if you have the time.

Mary said...

My favorite Christmas CD is These are Special Times by Celine Dion.

grammy said...

The Mercy Me Christmas Album. Happy BD to your daughter.

Bacardi Mama said...

Jimmy Buffett Christmas Island is my favorite.

Mieke said...

Thank you for leaving a nice comment on my blog. There are so many Christmas songs I like, if they give me the 'Christmas feeling' I like them. But my all time favorite singer is John Denver, so if I have to pick a song it's 'Christmas for Cowboys' and the CD would be the one with the Muppets. (I'm from Belgium, Europe, so you don't have to enter me in the giveaway if the costs or too high, I love your blog anyway)

Sandy aka Doris the Great said...

There are lots of special ones. But if there's one I wouldn't want to do without, it would be a cassette actually -- Raffi's Christmas. He's a Canadian children's entertainer from the 90's; this music just conjures up images of making cookies or candies with the kids! (Must look for this one on CD!!)

How nice that you've extended this wonderful giveaway. Please enter me.
