What is your favorite Christmas song?

LaRa SaYs: “Well, honestly I have too many favorites.  Can I share 2 of them? AnD ThE AnGelS CrIeD’ tears me up every time.  Love this song…

and my second song, as heard on the movie HoMe AlOnE, always makes me feel like a kid…and everyone wants to feel like a kid now and then :)”

*************************************************************

RoByN SaYs: Over the years my favorite Christmas song has changed.  This year I am really into BrEaTh of HeaVeN by Amy Grant.  It helps remind me of the true meaning of Christmas!”

*************************************************************

RoByNn SaYs:  My favorite?   Ummm………there is actually no other genre of music where I have so many songs in a dead heat.  This, however, may be one of the most powerful Christmas songs I have ever heard.  It is called, “Mary, Did You Know?”  By Rascal Flatts

  

Suede Sofa would LoVe to know your favorites this year!

{I’ll Be Home For Christmas}

This WiStFuL World War II song has special meaning as it depicts so beautifully the yearning of SeRviCe MeN and WoMeN (as well as others who are away) to be home for the holidays.  This song is still a special one and the Suede Sofa wishes you a WaRm holiday season whether you are home for Christmas or there only in your DrEaMs!!

The Suede Sofa KiNdnEss ChaLLenGe:

Want joy this season?  Then pLaNt the “seed” of joy in someone else’s life.  You do reap what you sow, afterall!  Here is our challenge to you:  Do two things this holiday season (things that you don’t normally do) for people who have no way of paying you back.  If this is new for you, start with one thing!!  Just do SoMeThing!!

Wish you could help others but feel OvErWheLmEd because the need is so great?  Instead of throwing your hands up and saying, “WhAt’s tHe PoiNt?”  why not help one person and make a DiFfeRenCe in one life?

Thank God For All I’ve Missed

As I look forward to CeLeBrAtiNg my 9th wedding anniversary next week I ThAnK GoD for every step and misstep that led me to the life that I live ToDaY.  My husband and I met on a Friday the 13th 10 years ago.  It was a CoMpLeTe ChAnCe MeEtiNg and I truly believe that we were DeStiNeD to be together.  Over the years I’ve thought about how lucky we are and I try my best not to take a second of it for granted.  We have TwO BeAuTifuL ChiLdrEn, a house that we love, wonderful memories, and hope for an ExCitiNg FuTurE. 

While driving the other day I heard the Darius Rucker song titled, This.  The lyrics talk about all of the events that happen in life that lead you to where you are right now.  “Thank God for all I’ve missed ‘cause it led me here to this,” is a lesson that I think so many people can learn from.  Too many times we get stuck in the mentality that when things don’t work out the way we plan we have failed.  Maybe they aren’t failures, but just StEpPiNg StOnEs to the life that we were meant to live.

{Best Pancakes Ever!!}

Hey, all you ChaNuTiaNs and SoUthEaSt KaNsAs folk, here are two great events occuring in Chanute, KS!

On Saturday, November 12th you can help the following ChAriTabLe CaUsEs:

The TuRkEy TrOt – A 5K run/walk that starts and finishes at the ReHaB & FiTnEsS CeNteR (Just West of The Hospital) at 9 a.m.  Proceeds go to the FaiTh HoUsE, an organization that houses people in need.  Cost is $15.  This includes a t-shirt.  For more info. call 620-432-5379.

The KiWaNiS PaNcAkE FeEd – A pancake feed from 6 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at the Masonic Temple on  Highland and Elm Street.  Proceeds will go to help children in need at Christmas.

These two events are always held on the same day and this has become a FaMilY trAdiTioN.  My husband runs in the Turkey Trot while my girls and I cheer him on and then we head over to eat ThE BeSt PaNcaKes EvEr!!  And I’m not just saying this because my father-in-law is a Kiwanis.  They really are AwEsOmE!  In fact, I really don’t eat pancakes anywhere else (except maybe at home) because they just can’t “StAcK-Up”!  You just have to come and try them yourself!!

I’ll try to get a video for you!

{Let The Holidays Begin!!}

Tonight Lara’s family and my family hung out together.  It’s TrAdiTioN.  We’ve been doing this on October 31st ever since we met back in 2009.

I’m not into Halloween, but I really am into ThanKsgiVinG AnD ChriStmAs!!  In fact, tomorrow is the first official day of the HoLiDaYs (according to me).   I actually saw my first Christmas commerical today!  Tomorrow I will break out the Christmas tunes and maybe even start hanging up the Christmas WrEaThS in the windows.  So, on that note, I want to leave you with this Christmas tune.

HoLiDaY ChEeRs!!
