Download the new, FREE Keith Urban app!

This Keith Urban app post has been compensated but all opinions are 100% mine.

Anyone who knows me and my family know that we just love Keith Urban's music.  Keith's songs were the first that really appealled to the Captain when he was around two years old.  He would get his toy guitar and jam out to "Put You In A Song," any time, day or night!  Here is a little video from when he was two and playing his arm as a guitar….haha:

Wordless Wednesday: Silent Night – David Archuleta

I’m totally cheating on the “Wordless Wednesday” post for today. There are tons of words and it’s not even a picture, BUT, we LOVE this song by David Archuleta, performed with the Mormon Tabernacle Orchestra! It’s simply beautiful!

If you've read this blog much at all, you'll know that Captain Fussybuckets has always been, well…fussy…about going to bed.  Even since he was a baby, his sleeping habits have been less than desirable.  We have never had a lullaby CD, but when I showed the "Over The Moon:  The Broadway Lullaby Project" CD, he was excited about having his very own lullaby CD and wanted to listen to it that [...]
