Ring the Bells

Hey everyone! It’s an extraordinarily beautiful, almost-fall day in Houston, Texas. Jackson and I got to enjoy a long walk on the Rice University campus with some friends earlier today. He just woke up from his nap asking for candy corns and his Bibby will be happy to know I obliged. Curtis is taking a quick nap before he goes to our church to teach Wednesday night Bible study on the life of Elijah. I am getting ready to run to the store and grab a mini pumpkin for Jackson for his MDO’s pumpkin patch tomorrow. We are still sniffling a little but we’re on the mend. I hope you all are doing well on this Wednesday afternoon.

There’s been some major buzz online about our dear friend Travis Cottrell’s newest project and I don’t want any of our peeps to miss out! Travis’ Christmas CD, Ring the Bells, was released today. Way to go, Trav! You can read a review of it here on the CCM Magazine web site. You can find the CD in stores, on Travis’ web site, and on iTunes.

Curtis starts humming Christmas songs in July and by October he’s singing them outright and playing them on the guitar. Last night it was “O Come All Ye Faithful.” My man will soon have some CD’s in our LPM online store, but I assure you they won’t be of him singing. We’ll leave that to Travis!

    Why wait until July. I sing them for Christmas and keep singing them and never stop singing them. Come to think of it I haven’t stopped singing Christmas since Christmas 1995, the first year I sang them as a believer!

    I was so ticked!!! I went to the Lifeway store in Atlanta specifically to get Travis’ new CD and they didn’t have it. Didn’t even know what I was talking about!! I wanted to look at the girl and say, “Are you from another planet???”, but I restrained myself. Guess I’ll order it!!

    First I want to say how much I enjoy reading your blog! The relationships between you and your mom and your sister remind me of my family! Also my husband’s name is Curtis and we named our son Jackson! We weren’t copying, I promise! I love Christmas music so much but decided to only listen to it after Thanksgiving and until New Years. That way it’s always special and we never get tired of it!
