Our Favorite Things: 2015
“Our Favorite Things: 2015”
Lyrics by: Bryant & Kensy Byers
To the tune of: “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music
New jobs and good jobs and trips to the mountains,
BSF, small groups, and praise team rehearsals,
A season to celebrate Jesus’ birth…these are a few of our favorite things.
Family time, good friend time, and new adventures,
Seared steak and cookies and sweet surprise flowers,
Ballroom dance lessons and grand piano strings…these are a few of our favorite things.
DIY projects and seeing new movies,
Our dog and friends’ dogs and even our kitty,
Concerts and cooking and dates at the range…these are a few of our favorite things.
When it’s trash day, and a raccoon, opens up our bag…
We simply remember our favorite things, and then we don’t feel so bad.
Toddlers and students and funny coworkers,
Netflix, vacations, and chats with the neighbors.
Warm, cozy nights that do not have to end…these are a few of our favorite things.
Fresh air and trimmed hair and time at the pool,
Long walks and Zumba and good bargain hunting,
Weddings and parties and Amazon Prime…these are a few of our favorite things.
New tools and Craigslist and clearance at Target,
Pen pals and board games and notes in the mail,
Road trips and cooking and trying new things…these are a few of our favorite things.
And when we’re asked, more than one time, when we’re having kids?
We’ll simply say, “We plan to wait just a bit,” and in the meantime, we’ll live…
Thank you for reading/singing! Wishing you and yours a blessed holiday season! May you find time to enjoy some of your favorite things now and in the New Year to come.
Kensy & Bryant
