Christmas wish list

Now that things are starting to look like fall around here

and the long weekend is over

and the turkey is all gone (or will be after I make turkey pot pies for dinner tonight)


it's time to move on to Christmas =)

we bought a Christmas tree that was almost longer than our car and received many strange looks from the locals (some children even pointed and laughed and grown adults almost got ran over/feel off their bikes because they were distracted by our strange American traditions...next year, I'm taking a video of all the gawkers!)

put out the few decorations we do have (the beautiful flowers were a hostess gift for Thanksgiving.  thanks Melissa!)

and purchased and wrapped all of our gifts to send back to the states =)




As for me, a few things I wouldn't mind seeing under my Christmas tree this year:

3. a flash for my camera

4. this FABULOUS necklace (with the diamond moved to the lower left corner)

5. since my computer is on it's last leg, a MacBook
