Bill and I went to the Festival of Trees Gala tonight. It was a fun evening. The economy must be doing at least a little bit better this year. The last few years have been very painful trying to get people to raise their bids. This year they were able to raise a lot of money. Several trees even sold for close to $2000 or more. I was so excited to get one of Christopher's Christmas gifts in the silent auction. It is something that he really wants right now so it will be hard to keep it a secret until Christmas. Bill arranged to have Ken Daswani donate a suit to the auction so he had a lot of fun all week planning what to do with the mannequin. He photoshopped a bunch of guys' heads to put on it through out the evening. I was able to get a few pictures of them with their mannequin pictures. I loved when Nancy went to give "Eric" a kiss. And as always--the trees are beautiful.
