A Kuma Bear Christmas

While we were out for our post-dinner walk around 6:30 last night, we walked by the nursery/gift shop on Main Street, and to our great surprise, they were still open. They even waved at us to come inside, so we did. As is regrettably the way with such gift shops, nearly everything there was Made in China, but in a back room we found some locally-made hand-knitted tiny little stocking caps. Lisa bought one as a Christmas present for travelswithkuma.

This afternoon, we opened our presents. I got Lisa some warm fur-lined slippers made in Canada, and got Kuma Bear a package of maple-smoked salmon, also from Canada. (We figure he'll share that we Lisa and me.) Kuma Bear gave me some new socks with fish on them. Lisa gave me a book about Robert Morris, the financier of the American Revolution. (That is of course in addition to the new luggage she bought me before SMOFCon that was very useful.)

All of us are pleased with our presents. And we do have a little living tree that Lisa will try to re-pot soon and see if we can keep growing for the next year.
