I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but our christmas present to you has been delayed a bit. Last night my mom fell and broke her ankle & Kate and I haven't quite had the time to get everything uploaded that we need to in order to post the links to our favorite albums.
However, tomorrow night, I'm hoping to have every album that we plan to uploaded done.
It's sort of like your gift is still in the mail, you know?
However, at least we can tell you what's coming!
To create our "Top 25 of 2008", both Henry and I made a list of our own top 25 first. 1st place received 25 points, 2nd - 24, 3rd - 23, and so on. We put our lists together, adding up the points each received to get our overall top 25. (There were some ties). I personally think this method was more complex than necessary, but Henry was set to do it. So, here it is:
