Stories on CD


WOW! I cannot believe that Christmas is in 2 days! My husband claims that today, Christmas eve’s eve is his favorite day of the whole year.  I asked him why, and he said : “because it is just so exciting!” And I suppose it is–though I think the actual Christmas eve is more exciting…and then of course Christmas is even more exciting than that…but to each his own!

I am excited though, because today I finished up one of my daughters Christmas presents (it’s about time!) Anyhow, I have been so excited about it I just couldn’t wait to share.

My 3 year old daughter is a HUGE fan of books on tape. We have been checking them out from the library and listening to them over and over and over and over and over…and over again in the car. And so I thought, “wouldn’t it be fun to make our own!?!” I figured to buy one would probably cost me about $14.00 or so and so of course making them would be much cheaper. (and I am all about cheap!)

My aunt found this great book sale at the elementary school down the street and I was able to get 10 books for $20.00! Woot woot! And then I had Audreys Grandmothers, Aunts and of course me and her dad each read her a book. I recorded them on my MAC and then later went in and added a “DING” (using Garage Band) so she would know when to turn the page.

Have I mentioned yet that I am super excited! She is going to love love love love LOVE her new books! YAY for fabulous Christmas gifts! If you can’t tell…I am very happy!


  1. This is such a great idea Anne!! I love it!!


  2. What a cute idea! You are a genius. I will have to do that for birthdays since my Christmas is done, and it NEEDS to stay that way! lol!


  3. So fun!! I always wanted to do this but didn’t know how to record the sound effects — duh! Of course I can use my Mac and Garage band, thanks for such a fun idea (especially since all of the grandparents, aunts and uncles have Macs in our family we can do this one long distance! ) : )


  4. You are so clever. *Claps* I’m so glad I know where to get some of these great ideas. By the way kiss the aunt who found the book sale. That is one fabulous deal.


  5. That is a fablous idea !!!!!
