Magical Moment 600, "Last Minute Christmas"

Stockings designed and handmade by my mother for Eddie and I. Too cute, right?


With a recent move to a new apartment, and about a million other things happening simultaneously, our box of Christmas decorations got taken to the dark, creepy basement without our realizing it. After a few weeks of unpacking, and only days until Christmas, Eddie and I made an executive decision...no Christmas decorations this year. I knew that was the easy solution, but as Christmas grew closer, I wondered if I could squeeze in the time to search through the junky basement and bring it upstairs. Finally, I let the idea go.

When I arrived home from work the other night, Eddie had retrieved the box and filled our apartment with our familiar decorations! He even concocted a Christmas tree from a large potted plant he picked up at Home Depot! It's (finally) beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Allow Eddie and I to serenade you...we recorded this simple tune a few Christmases ago. I'm singing and playing guitar and that's Eddie on the harmonica! :)

Oh sweet Eddie to go to all that trouble to get your new apartment feeling like home for Christmas. Thank you for sharing your gift of music with us. Doug and I were both in the computer room when I played your rendition of Silent Night. We both loved it. We enjoy harmonica music, and Eddie does an admirable job with it. Love the hand-crafted Christmas stockings, too. Merry Christmas to you and Eddie.
