It’s the Wee Hours of Christmas Morning

Everyone is asleep except me, and the house is very still and quiet. I’m up thinking of what a wonderful night this has been with my family, expecting a wonderful tomorrow, and feeling blessed beyond measure.
I played on my keyboard, something I rarely do in the busyness of my daily routine, but something I do a little more of this time of year. I absolutely love Christmas carols! It occurred to me that I have not made any recordings of myself playing music for my children. I want them to always remember what Christmas sounded like at our house with Mama playing, and I recorded a couple of my favorite carols. The perfectionist in me can’t believe I’m doing this, but I’m going to share them here. Bad lighting, bad acoustics, cheap keyboard, mistakes, and all. I left it all just as it is. I figure anyone reading this will understand that my practice time is nonexistent at this point in my life. I also have many little hands helping me play when I turn on my keyboard during the day. ;-) And maybe I will record that soon as well. And maybe I will carve out time to play more often during the coming year.
Anyway…Merry Christmas!
