12 Days of Christmas: Books

What is Christmas without books? When I was a kid, the only thing I really wanted were books. My family never really understood that need. They told me that I had too many books.
Now of course with the popularity of e-books getting books have never been easier, or in some cases sneakier.
A few of our favorite authors have holiday themed books out this year, that you just might want to use any Amazon gift cards you get for Christmas this year.

Everyone's favorite young adult couple Lexi and Raven are back in A DIFFERENT CHRISTMAS.
**This novella takes place before the epilogue in The Winning Side and A Different Side. This is a STANDALONE story, but it is recommended you read the series.** 

The final chapters in Raven and Lexi’s epic love story that began with Opposing Sides. 
Having been through hell and back, Raven and Lexi beat the odds stacked against them and came out on the winning side together. For the past several months, 

Raven’s been working hard to show Lexi he can be the hu…

12 Days of Christmas: Music

Yesterday we shared some of our favorite holiday movies. Today we figured we'd share some music with you. To get you in the right mood, let's start off with some Charlie Brown. Let's face it, who doesn't hear this and immediately smile?

Barb will be the first to harass me about music. She's even been known to cause an earworm or two. You know how that is... once that song gets stuck in there, it's all you think about. You're hearing it in your sleep... while you're making dinner... while you're driving down the road... you can't help but sing along even without realizing you're doing it. Holiday music does it to me all the time. Here is my personal favorite Holiday playlist. And because I love you all, some visuals to help those earworms along.

Let's face it... I'm a rock chick. My husband and youngest son play the guitar, my oldest plays the drums, There's something aweso…

12 Days Of Christmas:Movies

Christmas is the time of year when television networks brush off the classic movies we have come to love over the yearss, or create new ones. Hallmark has had a whole month of Christmas movies.

Most people like the sappy, happy Christmas stories, but me I love the movies that make me laugh so hard that my stomach hurts.
My all-time favorite movie is National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.
From the first when they go looking for that special Christmas tree, to when they get raided by the police.
Christmas Vacation not only starred Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo, but a young Juliette Lewis and Johnny Galecki (Leonard from Big Bang Theory)

What holiday movie marathon would be complete without Home Alone and Home Alone 2?

Where Kevin McAlister is accidentally left home alone and he has to protect his home from inept burglars Harry and Marv. The one thing this movie always makes me remember is when I used to watch my nephews Mark, BJ, Duane and Melissa and we would watch this movi…
