Weekend Music – This Year’s Holiday CD

A couple of years ago, I started making a holiday CD for family and friends. It serves as our Christmas card each year.

I start with buying one of the cool pre-printed CDRs at 5inch.com.

Then, it normal takes me a week or two to figure out what to put on there. This year, iTunes made that easier. The growing collection of music made it alot of fun. I do recommend getting off their canned lists and doing searches on song titles. You get a better selection of songs to choose from.

With further ado, here is our 2004 holiday CD:
