The Last 4M's for 2012

Hello my friends. Welcome to the last Monday of 2012. It has been quite a ride this year and I for one am glad to move forward in to 2013. 

Since today is Monday that of course means one last Mondays Music Moves Me 2012. This weeks Spotlight Dancer is Father Time! Boogie on outta here!

You know I always have some goodies for you so, let's get to it!

This whole month I paid homage to not only Christmas but other holidays of December.  I have the last two to share with you.

Kwanzaa takes place this year Dec. 26-Jan.1 I found a beautiful song for the holiday that speaks of one of the tenants. I hope you like it as much as I do! First up...



Boxing Day happens on Dec. 26th each year. I was going to post a song for Boxing Day but the only one I could find was kind of depressing so, I am moving on. Ok?

As you already know 2013 is literally around the corner. So my next to offerings are in celebration of that. (By the way, the Pink Song is not the "clean" version so be cautione…

Innovative Online Book Tour...Untimed by Andy Gavin

Hello my friends.
Did you know that I am a book tour host for a company called Innovative Online Book Tours? No? Well, I am! You can find the nice blue button down on the left side of my blog. See it? Good!

If you would like to join them you can click on the button or go HERE. You can also see what I am currently reading in the Goodreads button right below that.  The first book on the list will be the one that I am on tour with and reviewing for Amazon and Goodreads.  Which brings me too...


Untimed is a Young Adult fantasy book written by Andy Gavin.

This book follows Charlie, a 14 year old, history buff, Philadelphia raised boy, whom everyone seems not to notice. His own mother cannot remember his name and his father seems to be more absent than home.

This all changes a few days before his birthday when the police knock on his front door, just as a visit from his Dad is going to reveal something important. However, this is just not any old police! This is a clockworks man known later …

Project 52...the 2013 Edition...Here I go again!

The last two years I have participated in the Project 52...ummm project? Anyway, this is my alternative to New Year's resolutions! I do not do that because frankly I think everyone breaks them about 20 seconds after midnight, feels bad and then gives up the rest of the year.



Project 52 is the brainchild of Karen and Jennee, or Karen and Jennee are its brainchild, I am not sure which but we will go with the first one. OK? Yeah.  Project 52 allows you to list some goals you want to do for the year and try to achieve them. If you don't well, then you don't and do not feel bad. Instead you feel good for what you did do! I accomplished many of my goals for 2012. Check that out HERE FOR 2012

Anywho, here we are on the cusp of the year 2013, after surviving the Apocalypse and all, and I present to you my 52 list for 2013. Want to join me with your own list? Cool. Link up below and I will come by on occasion to encourage you.

Take 52 weeks of photos of me. You know, one each week.T…

Sunday Christmas Stories...A Personal Nativity Story

Quick note before the scheduled apocolypes...in t-minus 2 hours MST.

My hubby and I got a surprise present for a trip to see my Mother for Christmas. I have not seen her for 5 months.  That is where I write this message from now.

I am just letting you know between now and about January 8th, I will sparsely be on line but may pre-post. I dunno but I am putting Featured Faces on hold until then.

Just in case though, I should mention that in less than 2 hours the world is supposed to end. As I do not believe a lick of that, I have decided to move in to the closest mansion that leaves and claim all of their stuff. For those of you that do believe, I wish you good luck with all that and nice of you to have followed me up until this point.

For the rest of you, I will see you again at the next go around and thanks for following me as well.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Peace, 
Naila Moon

Mondays Music...The Christmas Edition 12/17/12

This week is all about the Big Red Guy himself, Santa. Don't you just love him rocking out with his bad self up there? Ha!  Anyway, this is the third week of the Christmas Edition and I have some goodies for you, I assure you.
-----------
However, before I get too far in I want to acknowledge the precious ones that were lost this last week. The country is in turmoil over it and frankly, I am no different.  This little ones are not telling Santa their secrets but instead spending their time with the one who Christmas is all about, the one who welcomes all the children. My first song up is for them.

In Memory:

Now that I most likely have you all in tears, let me give you a break. COLLECTIVE BREATHE HERE

Ok, now on to the rest of my Mondays Music.

First up:

Saturday Christmas Silly Cartoons and more...

Tonight's Christmas movie is Frosty the Snowman. So, today is all about snow people.  I have trivia, cartoons and even some pins for you.

Trivia
1. The term snowman came into existence only sometime between the years 1820-1830. It is not really know who made the first snowman.

2. Even though no one is quite sure, it is possible that the snowman began in Russia as children's response to sightings of the Yeti.

3. The world's tallest snowman built in 2008 was 122ft 1inch. It weighed a whopping 13,000,000 pounds. The snowman was built in Bethel, Maine.

4. January 18th is World Day of the Snowman.

Featured Faces and Friendship Friday...12/7/12

Hello one and all. It is late afternoon or early evening here and I am just settling down with my red blanket and watching the Santa Clause. I have seen it a thousand times but it still makes me smile.

Anyway, I am only up for Friendship Friday this week and of course my two Featured Friday Followers. So, on to it.

Friendship Friday



Question of the week is...What are your favorite holiday traditions?


Well, in the last few years the traditions I have had my entire life have changed because of family changes. However, some of the things we did when I was a kid was we would go to Midnight Mass and then come home and "sleep" for 2 hours only to get up, (there was a whole traditional thing for my parents before they would release us from our room but that is for another time). Once up, we first would light the Advent wreath and the open presents with immediate family. Then we would go to my Grandparents and have Christmas with them and the extended family and have breakfast.  Grandpa…
