So what do you get the man who has everything or at least can afford to buy anything he feels he wants?
A custom bobble-head! Probably because he would never in a million years buy it for himself.

So, for Christmas, the girls at my work decided to put our money together and get our boss a bobble-head made in his likeness. We ordered it from a company based in China at and it just got here today and I'm so excited!

Here are the pictures I took of him to send to the company. Thank goodness he's a busy man and didn't really wonder too much why I was telling him to pose for pictures. I'm sure he forgot all about it.

So, I ordered it on October 7th and it just got here today. I wanted to make sure we got it in time for Christmas. What do you think?

Halloween '08

We got to dress up at work for the first time since I've been working there. Dr. Doxanas was really nice and bought us all crabcakes!

We got some little visitors too. Here is Gabe as a cowboy. He came in our office riding his stick-horse. He was so cute!

And Cadence came dressed as Yoda! His dad must be so proud.

And here he is with his mommy. He's so close to walking on his own, but prefers crawling because he can get around faster. Those long sleeves were getting in the way, though.

Patty and Janet

Beth and Amanda

Tom wearing his famous "costume".

After work we went to my parent's to do some trick-or-treating. Hannah and Ben dressed as Princess Leia and Darth Vader. Danielle did an excellent job with Hannah's hair! Hannah was telling me about it and kept referring to the "hair weave" hair as her "hair leave".
Chloe was a beautiful mermaid. I had the pleasure of making her costume this year. I loved it so much I wanted to wear it myself! It was so sparkly!

Emily was Tinkerbell. She was so cute! When we first started out trick-or-treating, she cried when we left the first few houses. She didn't understand and was upset and couldn't understand why we were leaving the nice people who were giving her candy! She caught on soon enough, though and was trick-or-treating like a pro.

And last but not least, here's Zachary (or as Ryan decided to call him "Zack Attack"). Zachary was a cut fish to match Chloe's mermaid! This was, by far, the CUTEST baby costume I've ever seen.

Danielle carried on the Star Wars theme by dressing as Padme. It was an awesome costume that her sister, who wore it last year, mailed to her.

Mike and Will humored my request to dress as Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum. They were getting upset as the night went on because everyone kept saying, "hey look at that clown!" or, my favorite, "hey, what's up with those big trousers"?

I don't have many pictures of my costume. I was Alice in Wonderland. Here's one with the snaggle-tooth Cheshire Cat.

Here you can see a little more of my dress. Can you see Zachary peeping over Chloe's head?

I had a great time this year. My parents got us the traditional Subway dinner and had hot chocolate waiting for when we got back.
