Knowing we were going to host Christmas last year, we finally came to the decision that we must buy some new couches. Most of the furniture is hand-me-downs, which is wonderful! But, the couch situation was pretty miserable, and also, I got a really good deal.
Bert was the first person to really get into the new-couch experience. As soon as the couches hit the floor, he hit a couch, book in hand, with the generous afternoon sunshine streaming in through the window.
