Here's what it looked like on Christmas morning!!! The elf on top of the tree is "Adam" the elf who is our "Elf on the Shelf". Google the book if you don't know what I'm talking about. The plate had some chocolate chip cookies made that night on it and a tall glass of milk which Santa drank and ate right up!! The tree is an entirely different story.
For Christmas Eve, we ate at Gigi's Italian restaraunt. It was closeby and we still had to do some grocery shopping for Christmas day before the stores closed (at 7pm). Gigi's was quite good. The best part of it was the beautiful Christmas tree they had on display. A full-sized tree decorated with lights and ornaments stood in the waiting area. I took Tae to look at it and said, "Look closely because this is the only Christmas tree you'll see this Christmas Eve..." A nearby person, (who happened to own the place) asked where we were staying. I politely told her, "Sunset Vistas" and she then said, "Why don't you take the little tree right here and use this as your Christmas tree this year. You can drop it off in a few days. No one is going to miss it around here!!" What a sweetie!
