We gave him the balance of his presents at dinner--"Hamburgers in Mushroom soup" and mashed potatoes. I gave him his lovely resized and polished wedding band at Tucano's. I gave him a new orangeish-brown-with-burgandy-stripes sweater at the Sorensen's on Friday (Check out "Sanford & 'Sens" blog from 30 Nov, 2008). Lila gave Jeff a surprise from iTunes: "I think we're all bozos on this bus" by The Firesign Theatre. Dibs gave yet another installment of the comic book "Max and Pal, his dog." Dibs has been adding to the saga year after year--for sure on Birthdays, and sometimes for Christmas & Father's day. The little gals took their showers without a fight, as a gift to Jeff. Peterman wrote "Best Dad" in his best calligraphy penmanship on one of his Dominoes and awarded it to Jeff. Jeff got new boots (made in America), a few new t-shirts, some new sheets, "Batteries not included" dvd, and some "Craisins" trail mix. In case you were wondering---The "partridge in a pear tree" is busy this time of year or he would have gotten one of them, too. ;) Our good friend Sara came over. She's so fun to be around, she keeps us laughing, and she's a great story teller.
We love Jeff so much! He's a fantastic husband, a great provider, a wonderful Dad, a creative Mr. Fix-it, a treasured friend, a kilt maker & wearer, and genuinely a nice guy! Besos y abrazos!
