I put up the bird tree Saturday morning. Love this year's additions: (top right) a birthday gift from my folks and (bottom right) a gift to myself from my August visit to Florida.
Saturday afternoon, Lydia, Katie, Karen and I gathered here for birthday knitting (marking the official "end" of my birthday celebration for the year!). They put out a delicious spread
...and of course there was wine, too. Cheers!
Saturday evening was Marc's company party. I hope the party photographer took one of the two of us, because the only photo I have is this one - that's Marc on the left with his co-worker Bruce on the right.
Bruce has played Santa at the company party for years; this year he asked Marc to help out. Doesn't he make an adorable elf?!
Yesterday I finally hung the ornaments on our big tree. I tried to keep everything hung below waist level "Charlie friendly"...wish us luck tomorrow!
And we watched - for the second time this season (!) - Love Actually.
It's also sounding a lot like Christmas. My Merry 2015 playlist (all 97 songs) is on shuffle.
It's nice to have the decorating done, and Marc's party out of the way. Nothing left to do now but enjoy!
