"What about those socks?"

“What about those socks?” is what a 5 yr. old asks when he means to say, “Where are the Christmas stockings?” Yes, this is an actual quote from our son while setting up the Christmas tree and other decorations this evening.

Great Joy = Great Christmas Music

Okay, Christmas is just around the corner... if you're like me and can't wait for the next Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir or Christ Church Choir Christmas project, then check out, "Great Joy - A Gospel Christmas". (also available via download from iTunes for $9.99) The arrangements are simply electric and the singers are some of the best broadway singers in NYC who come together to form this incredible choir. If you like smokin' gospel choirs, then you won't be disappointed!! This is one I go back to every year!!
