Appalachia Christmas Music

It’s Christmas Time At My House

Christmas Cards From Appalachia

Chitter and I found ourselves at home alone all day yesterday. We decided to make the day all about crafting for Christmas. We made banners-we made snowmen-we made angels-and of course we made Christmas trees.

Earlier in the week Pap told me he wanted the girls to sing a Christmas song they did a couple of years ago-It’s Christmas Day At My House by Patty Loveless. As me and Chitter crafted I had the song running round in my head-and it’s still there today.

Take a listen to the past and see what you think-and see how Chatter and Chitter have grown up since that Christmas in 2009.

Hope you enjoyed the old video-and I’ll be sure to share some of our crafting ideas with you over the coming days-they’re all easy peasy.

Tipper

    Tipper,
    The girls are changing fast…Love the girls rendition of the song..
    I had boys but we still did some crafting when they were little..and in Cub Scouts…
    Those trees are pretty. Have you ever made a feather tree! Or, have you ever made a toothpick tree?
    I have made both, when cleaning out Mothers attic I came across a shoe box. In it were what was left of the toothpick tree, with snow and glitter still on most of the toothpicks…also found the feather tree and both had to be tossed…That’s Moms for you anything a child made for Mother becomes a treasure stored away…
    Thanks Tipper, for the memories

    Those beautiful girls are growing up so fast! The voices are still so sweet. Love the little trees too. I’ve got Beautiful Star of Bethlehem stuck in my brain tonite. We sang it at church today and I’m listening to it right now. It has to be my very favorite Christmas song!

    Enjoyed hearing the girls’ video from 2009! As most have noted, their voices have matured very nicely in three years! It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here. We had our church “special” Christmas music both morning and evening services here! Both times it was very uplifting and beautiful. The children and youth choirs showed some promising voices for future adult choir members! Always that is encouraging! You folks have an audacious Appalachian Christmas!

    I can surely see that you had some crafting good time fun. I miss having the kids around to play around with crafting. Looks like it was just a good day!

    I surely do miss having little ones, (even bigger little ones) around to do things like that with.
    Used to have a houseful with our girls and a lot of the neighbors kids doing crafts and cooking.

    Tipper,
    I remember those little girls of
    2009, and with the rest of the
    Blind Pig family, have watched them blosseum. The pretty crafts
    made me think of the good ole
    days of my youth too…Ken

    Not only have the girls grown and matured since 2009 but their voices have grown and matured as well.
    The thing that has not changed…..the voices of angels in 2009 is still the voices of angels in 2012!
    Those are some interesting Christmas trees you guys made. I can’t wait to get there and see everything.
