Every year the Christmas Spirit seems to strike me at some point in time for no particular rhyme or reason.  This past week has been so full of activities that were holiday-related that I guess I shouldn’t be surprised it’s struck tonight. 

Whatever the reason, I share this video with you of one of my all-time favorites, Nat King Cole, singing “The Christmas Song” written by Mel Torme and Bob Wells on a hot July afternoon in 1945.  While the audio of this clip is not the best reproduction, I love being able to actually watch Nat King Cole sing as well as hear his wonderful voice.  It brings back many warm, beautiful memories of my childhood.  I hope you enjoy it. 

Merry Christmas!

One of my very favorite videos to watch at this time of year is “Scrooge,” the musical version of “A Christmas Carol,” which starred Albert Finney.  It’s hard to say which scene is the best, but I’ve always especially enjoyed this one – “Christmas is for children young and old.”  Enjoy!

Still looking for a special something for your child to find under the Christmas tree or in his stocking?   Don’t forget that we have bilibos available for purchase in our studio. 

Bilibo - a virtually indestructible toy!

Children find all kinds of ingenious ways to use the bilibo, and the good news is that it’s virtually indestructible!  Being made in Switzerland, it meets all European toy safety requirements.  Check out the different ways the children enjoyed bilibos in class. 

One happy little girl!    Three Bilibo friends    How far back can I rock?

That smile says it all!    Hey, we’ve got color coordinated bilibos!

Watch me balance    Mother and Son Turtles in their shells    Climb the hill and jump

What else can I do with this?   Can I take it home with me?   Even teenagers can’t resist bilibos!

We also have the beloved red Kindermusik egg shakers, rhythm sticks, and Jingle Bell Jam Christmas CD’s available for Santa to hide in your child’s stocking.  Just email and let me know what you need.  Imagine your child’s delight in finding any of these under the tree or in his or her stocking! 😀
