Vern and Donna McDonald reserved a conference room at the Hilton Garden Inn so that Jan (who just had hip and arm surgery) and me could watch the civil war game in comfort without a ton of people there. It was fun and relaxing!

Thursday, December 3
Two days after my post-op appointment, I got up and took a shower and notice afterward that the surgical pin had come out of my toe! It was yanked out by some blankets in the middle of the night! OH NO!
We usually don't waste much time making a decision for a tree. We have been taking pictures next to the tree for years, but it is hard to see how tall they have grown because the trees are a different height every time! This is one of our tallest trees yet though.
We stopped by Khairol and Noorul's to show them our fresh-cut tree, and they had made us a lunch with Ketupat (Malay dumpling) with peanut sauce. Feruz was there too.
Despite my surgery, we didn't want to cancel a tea I had made with three Saudi women. George found this wonderful recipe (because Saudis don't like sweet things with their tea). Sadly, one got sick. The other had to pack to go somewhere, but they didn't call to tell us they weren't coming and we waited and waited. A bit discouraging, but the quiche was GREAT!
