O Christmas Tree, Where Art Thou?  2

Posted on December 10th, 2006. About News and Politics, Ramblings.

While Evan was reading the local newspaper this morning, he brought to my attention the fact that all of the Christmas trees at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport were removed after a rabbi was threatening to sue if a menorah was not placed in the airport as well. The final decision – to take down the trees. The rabbi who threatened the suit was not pleased with this decision. Neither am I.

Now I see that it’s a national news story. Come on! We are not exactly the most religious of all couples, but there is something special about this time of the year, and our tree is up, complete with lights and ornaments (and yes, presents at the base). It reminds me of being a kid, and feeling excited about the upcoming holiday! And seeing my grandparents and cousins! I really wish the airport had been sensitive enough to add a Menorah to become more inclusive of other groups rather than removing all of the Christmas trees. Seattle is a very culturally diverse city, and it irritates me that they would not celebrate this.

Anyway, here is our tree! I call him my Charlie Brown tree – he’s short, but cute and needs love.

Baby on the Way!  1

Posted on December 10th, 2006. About Baby Dodds.

We are officially ready to announce our happy news – Evan and I are expecting a baby in July 2007.  Our first OB appointment was last week, and were told that all looks good so far. Our families know, as do many of our close friends. I told the neurology department this week, the members of whom have offered support and congratulations. Here’s to the next phase of life!

Oh, and here’s approximately what our baby should look like, if we could photograph it:

He/she is the length of a cherry, or so the sources tell me!
