Then I was stuck by inspiration when I was at The Tattered Cover in downtown Denver with Colleen and Katie. One of Michael's favorite books is The Wind and the Willows. I knew we already owned 2 copies of the book, so it seemed redundant to buy another. However, I did find a DVD version of the old TV show. I didn't even know that the show existed. So this was a perfect find.
Michael and I have watched a little bit of it and it's quite amusing. Michael loves it whenever woodland creatures dress up in proper attire and speak in British accents, so it was really a perfect gift. However, as great a gift that it was to give, it could not compare with the AWESOME present that Michael gave me. He found a giant metal willow tree to hang on the wall.
I love it!
We hung it up in our bedroom. Our apartment is quite cutely decorated but the bedroom walls were pretty boring. Now I think it looks so fun in there.
Yay for fun presents and nine happy years.
