Readers and peepers of this here blog, I professed at the beginning of this month that I wanted to MAKE JANUARY AWESOME. There are a number of strategically planned ways I am going to make sure this happens, and one most definite way is with the new KARAOKE system Christmas vacay brought with it.

"I'll watch you girls sing," she declared.
I knew the karaoke's vortex would pull her and there would be no escape. FOUR HOURS LATER...and a whole ABBA album of karaoke-singing later, I was right. ;)
Here ae some shots of my awesome January Sunday:

I needed a day with the girls, a day with wine, a day with unbridled dancing and singing, a day of
Thankful for it yesterday.
I have so many favorite songs to karaoke but some are:
