I Guess Frosty Was A Very Happy Snowman Until He Melted

Jackson has been learning lots of Christmas songs at school and Jeremy and I just love to hear him singing away. Last night Jackson was cracking me up when we had the following conversation:

Jackson: “Mama, can I sing We Wish You A Merry Christmas?”
Me: “You sure can.”
Jackson (singing loudly and with must gusto): “WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS! WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS! WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!”
Me: “That was great!”
Jackson: “Mama, can I sing Frosty the Snowman now?”
Me: “Sure!”
Jackson (singing loudly and very off key): “Frosty the Snowman was a very happy snowman with a button nose. And he had a hat. And he liked to play all day. And he melted. And that’s all I know.”
Me: “Wow!”
Jackson: “Mama, can I sing Away in a Manger?”
Me: “Absolutely!”
Jackson: “Away in a manger, no room for a bed. Jesus laid his sweet head down. No room for a bed because they were away in a manger. And I don’t know the rest.”
Me: “That was really good.”
Jackson: “Mama, can I sing O Holy Night?”
Me: “Do you know that song?”
Jackson: “Yes, ma’am!”
Me: “I would love to hear it!”
Jackson (with great enthusiasm): “O Holy Night!!! The End!”

I think he’s almost ready for a solo during next year’s children's choir Christmas performance!

Almost ready for a solo? Do we need to replay the video of Stonewall Jackson from the Christmas performance?

So sorry Frosty melted, but it doesn't seem to have his upset!!

I'm am so proud that he knows so many Christmas songs. What ... he didn't sing "Jingle Bells" to you. He definitely knows that one too!!
