nallaa feline

the title is how i pronounced "merry Christmas" in Italian this morning. It is actually "natale felice". but because i have a cold, and i am tired and absurd, that is how it came out.
here is the goings of ons.
1st, I found an adorable website (http://leafcutterdesigns.com/) which is the "worlds smallest post service". I stumbled upon it a few weeks ago and decided i must send out mini packages to a couple of friends. Liz Connolly just got her... you can see it on her blog.
B) here are some pictures of things that are real. that sentence makes no sense. But i am currently on Dayquil, as well as taking some nasty citrus tablet that is supposed to work like Zicam that tastes like chalk with a drop of orange juice. I gag every time i take it. And i used some nasal spray, which is MY JAM! I love that stuff.

This is the green bean casserole Shay made for Thanksgiving. It is a Pioneer Woman recipe. And it was aaaahhhmayyyzing

Michael coaches football at Phillip O Berry HS. His team went to playoffs so me, Shay, her parents and his parents drove up to Salisbury for the game. They didn't win. But we did cheer.
Amelies
This is the owner of Amelies. We call him Mr. Amelie. He is the sweetest guy ever. He walks around just to make sure everything is ok. One day we were joking that there never seems to be enough coffee in our french press. That we run out so soon. Minutes later he came out with a fresh one, on the house. And he called me "beautiful" the night i took this picture. We love him the best.
We had some friends over to help decorate our tree. Once everyone left we found these items shoved into the tree branches. A clock, a plant, and my roommates family picture.
And the culprit was
Ben. He also moved an owl that was on top of a tall bookshelf over to a desk, and stuffed kitchen items into the couch cushions. We weren't quite sure what got into him that night. Quite rambunctious

This is Dan. Or, as i call him, Cool Danny. He is the newest co-worker and was very excited to help with the tree. He hung AN ornament.
i love Christmas tree lots/store/things. I think they are pretty. Thus, i took a picture of one.
Monday afternoon we went into our lunch room to find it had been transformed. This picture does not do it justice. There are paper chains and fake candy EVERYWHERE. the room is huge (this is just the kitchen) and pretty much every ceiling tile had something hung from it. It was like Elf.

The other day at lunch we were talking about the clothes we wore as kids. We brought up Jams, the colorful MC Hammer style pants. We all had wonderful memories of Jams. Well, these are a pair of my step-dad's Jams. A friend borrowed them for a costume party a few years back, and i never returned them. I am going to try to talk the boys into wearing them at Christmas.
this ornament is the crowning glory of our tree. It majestically guards it. Ashley is much more traditional than i am with tree decorating, so most of my ornaments would clash horribly. but i asked if this guy could be part of it. A gift from Brenna and Juan. And i love it.
Lastly, this gem. I have a life crush on Mark Wahlberg. No shame in it. I love him. Shaynah feels the same for Christian Bale. So when we found out the 2 were in a movie together... a BOXING movie at that... well, it was like Hollywood made us our own Christmas present. Though it would probably be a Hanukkah present, since most of Hollywood is Jewish. But still. We are quite excited.
