On the heels of the news about El'bow, this ornament arrived in my mailbox today from Nichole.
I'm floored. Really, I am. This was a very thoughtful gesture, and one I will always appreciate.
So, we went Christmas tree shopping tonight. This ornament needed a place to live. We did not have our chief shopper, so it was rather a subdued affair. However, since only 5 of us were home, we were able to fit in the "little Cadillac" and ride comfortably to the farm (as opposed to last year, when 9 of us went in the Suburban, and Jeff lifted me into the truck because I can no longer climb. That was kind of funny, actually).
And this little one decided that my dearly beloved was her new friend. Sadly, since she wouldn't stand still, I didn't get one clear shot of her. But she made us laugh.
So, tomorrow, we'll be decorating - finally.
