    Love your Christmas music list Lisa! Thank you! I would add: Noche de Paz (Silent Night) by Mary J. Blige and Marc Anthony; We Three Kings by Rod Stewart and Mary J. Blige; and What Child is This? by Andrea Bocelli and Mary J. Blige. Yes, I love Mary J! Still jealous you and Bryan got to see her live the night after I left Baltimore! 🙂 Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful family!

      Of course you know that I’m going to check all those tunes out right Alicia. This is so funny that you have Mary J. in every selection. She is such a great performer. We had a blast! Off to look for those songs in Amazon Prime now. Obviously. 😉
