The tree trimming party was a lot of fun! About 15 friends came and had a little something to eat and drink and then helped us hang all the ornaments. Spouse made (warm) artichoke dip, (warm) buffalo chicken dip, both served with crackers and carrots and celery. Spouse also made mac 'n cheese and a crockpot of saucy meatballs, served with rolls. I made milk chocolate chip brownies and white chocolate chip brownies, and we also served several types of cookies we bought. And there was a decorated birthday cake as if we didn't have enough sweets.

While in Montreal in Oct we stopped in a Christmas store and bought a Chihuahua ornament for the tree. I was excited to see it once it was placed on the tree by 1 of our friends.

Mon was my actual birthday but Spouse had his personal trainer appointment and my team at work had its Christmas cocktail party and secret Santa gift exchange, so Spouse & I planned to go out to dinner for my birthday on Tues. I picked dinner at the award winning Blue Moon restaurant, which is adjacent to the bar/nightclub where I perform. I had an AMAZING beef short rib with white cheddar grits and grilled veggies. SOOO delicious. Spouse had a wonderful butternut squash soup and rock fish. Because it was my birthday we were treated to a complimentary wedge of Moon Pie.
