Christmas In Astoria/ A Visit From A Friend
I was mystified by Christmas in Astoria. Not only did the neighborhood put up massive amounts of Christmas lights but, they also piped in Christmas music for the shoppers. After arriving back from Thanksgiving, it was hard to ignore the "Christmas Spirit". On December 20th, there was a blizzard on the East Coast. Despite the blizzard shoppers still braved Steinway Street to finish up before Christmas. The super decorated the building for Christmas. The lights and the tree in the lobby looked lovely. It will be sad when they take down the decorations because the lobby will be boring again.
We spent Christmas Eve and Christmas morning on Long Island with my family and Christmas Evening and weekend in Maryland. It was great to be able to see both families on Christmas. My parents gave us an adorable ornament commemorating our engagement for the tree. Dave's mother made us a lovely Christmas table runner and centerpiece for the coffee table.
We were finally able to have my MOH over to the apartment today. I was so excited to be able to show her the apartment and the neighborhood. She was a trooper and helped to put together the Wii that the fiance got for Christmas.
