 Christmas gifts yet?

I have.....

SO's beloved Springer Spaniel, Max died this past May. He was being treated for a possible cancerous growth on his leg, and we were waiting for biopsy results.  SO and I had gone out for a class reunion, Max was at his Ex wife's. We picked him up on the way back through to my place.

Max began whining with pain shortly after we got in bed, so I asked SO if he had any pain meds for him. .. Yes, and they were in the truck, so SO went to get them. Meanwhile I got out of bed to comfort Max, and he basically had a seizure and died in my lap just as SO returned with the meds. We think he died from spetic shock as SO's wife had taken Max to the vet while we were out to get his bandages changed, and that vet said the first vet did a horrible job of the biopsy/bandaging, etc,

SO was just heartbroken... his beloved running buddy and sidekick of 9 years was gone.

He still tears up thinking of him.

I had several pics of Max on my phone, and a CM friend in another group is quite a talented artist. She's doing a pencil drawing of Max for me so I can frame it and give it SO for Christmas!

I can't wait to see it!

Aw, that is a great idea for a gift! It has so much meaning. 

I've thought about gifts but haven't bought anything and probably won't until the last minute. It's just what I do every year. lol.

That is so sweet.  What an awesome idea!

Yes, I'll probably be making most of mine so I've had to start thinking of it already.

That's sweet. I couldn't do it. DH has pics of Celsus as his wallpaper on his phone and comps. I can't even look.

No.  We've actually never celebrated Christmas together, so now that DD is born this is our first year thinking about it.  I don't even know where to start lol.

Not really. I make all the christmas gifts, but the one I wanna do for DH is sidelined cause one of the colors I wanna use in it is being used in an order. So it's gotta wait.
