On Monday my boss took the office out for lunch to Busara Restaurant for Pad Thai, much to our delight! At lunch my boss surprised me with a gift. He had gone to the Bellingham Herald after the girls' picture had been printed and got a copy. He then had it framed for me! What an awesome gift! I think that I have found the perfect place for it on my wall.
It's a sad year at our house this Christmas. We no longer have a truck so this makes it much more difficult to get a live tree. I have looked at artificial ones but I have not found one that I like in my price range. I am going to be keeping an eye out for sales over the next few days and maybe after Christmas. So I have resorted to putting up the tree that I got at a garage sale this summer for free. It is 4 feet tall and pre-lit. I don't remember 4 feet being so short! I had purchased some ornaments for it so that it could be put in the dining room (which would be a perfect location for it) but it is now in our living room. I guess that my regular ornaments will have to take a breat this year.
