Away for Thanksgiving

Well, I'm about 12 hours away from a trip to Washington DC for Thanksgiving. My two brothers, their wives and children, my mother and me, and whatever spares they pick up. We might have gone to my brother's new house in West Virginia (after he escaped from Katrina), but my DC brother's daughter is a bit young.

For my <1 year old niece, I made a music CD. Sort of on the fly, but with thought behind it. My previous CD for infants was a bunch of slow classical and lullaby music. But I noticed my sister-in-law singing to the High Hopes: Songs of Joy and Optimism CD traded with dreamshark and pegkerr and others. Without repeating a song, and with only a little cheating on my favorites, here is a playlist of singable tunes primarily for the grownups since Antonia won't understand the lyrics for many years.
