Thanksgiving + Chris Tomlin Christmas Album Giveaway

What a fantastic Thanksgiving weekend! I was not the world's best picture-taker, but I snapped a few cute ones to remember these full days.

Some highlights of the long weekend include:

+ Thanksgiving dinner with both sets of our parents together.

+ Blackberry pie with vanilla bean ice cream.

+ Friday night pizza and popcorn, watching "Jurassic World" with Steve, Mackenzie, and Josh. (Not my kind of movie, but great company!)

+ Playing CLUE, my all-time favorite board game. 

+ Christmas shopping with my mom at an expansive craft fair.

+ Unbeatable Black Friday online deals.

+ An extraordinarily fun ladies' night at my friend Natasha's house, laughing til my cheeks hurt!

+ Celebrating my friend Barbara's birthday.

+ Enjoying another special holiday with my two sweet boys!

Grandpa Jack had to take some guests out on his old-fashioned "toy" :)


Now that Thanksgiving has passed, it's officially time to break out the Christmas music! My all-time favorite album is Amy Grant's "Home for Christmas". It will get played approximately 107 times this month. A brand new album on rotation at my house is Chris Tomlin's "Adore". Chris Tomlin is an incredible songwriter and worship leader, and his 2013 album "Burning Lights" debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200.

The new CD features classic Christmas songs like "Silent Night" and "What Child is This" and also a few original songs. Overall, the album has a very calm and worshipful sound. There are special guest performances from Crowder, All Songs and Daughters, and Lauren Daigle.

Listen to the title track "Adore" :

And if you haven't heard this version of "Noel," featuring Lauren Daigle, you need to! It's beautiful, and it's my favorite track on the CD.

  1. Do you listen to Klove?? Sounds like you had a really good Thanksgiving. Blackberry pie with ice cream sounds delicious :)

    1. We don't get KLove where we live, but I do listen to a similar Christian station :)

  2. Ooh I loved Adore :) I can't remember the last time I played Clue! So glad you had a happy holiday!
