Irish Christmas Music and Cinnamon Sugared Pecans

Whew! There's a lot going on at the {Not Just} Homemaking Party today! You get to check out a new CD and even WIN A COPY...plus there's a great recipe link to visit....AND you get to link up and visit all those who are partying with us! Happy day!

I don't know what did it, but yesterday I started feeling very much in the holiday spirit! It's probably the overcast skies, coupled with the fact that everyone has colds---must be going on winter time! Ha! I'm determined to savor every minute of this holiday season. I don't want to be too busy to miss all the special little things that we look forward to every year. One sure fire way to get me in the holiday spirit is to listen to beautiful festive worship music like Joy: An Irish Christmas with Keith & Kristyn Getty. This is a beautiful compilation of 18 original and favorite worship Christmas songs, including my favorite, In Christ Alone. These songs tell the story of Christ and remind us that we can celebrate Him all year long!

You can find Joy: An Irish Christmas at Family Christian stores. Even easier, check it out on their website! You can also enter to win a copy below! (Rafflecopter widget may take a minute to load.)

Another festive thing about the holiday season is the delicious smells and tastes we get to experience! I love trying new things and, even though my daughter has been making these since she was about 11 years old, I'd never made sugared nuts before. I gave it a try today and they're not too bad! Coupled with some cinnamon hot chocolate, these are tasty snacks that smell yummy too! I used this recipe from Jonna.
