A Vineyard 31st:
Lambert's Cove Inn (Vineyard Haven): Jerry Berlin on piano, Johnny Hoy & the Bluefish to ring in the New Year, prix fixe dinner and overnight accommodations available.
Atlantic (Edgartown): DJ and dancing for the fashionably chic.
The Wharf (Edgartown): The Boogies kick up your heels in retro-60's-style.
Each year, "one" item costs as much as the pile of gifts they used to receive when they were in kindergarten...
Clothing: Lots of "leggings". A big hat with pom pons on the ends. A duffle coat. Some warm/cozy flannel PJ bottoms. "Sweet" t-shirts. Those big boots with the colored-laces (Sorel's).
Books: Adores the cover of "The Candymakers" by Wendy Mass, "Savvy" by Ingrid Law (again, a "wow" cover...and the girlfriends are reading it, and it's "really good"), and "Touch Blue" by Cynthia Lord (just purchased at the Scholastic Book Fair, it's about island kids who are trying a drastic move to keep their school from closing. She is enjoying her early Christmas present).
Music: Wants ("wants" - under your breath...the way Brick does on The Middle...) an iTouch....and gift card from iTunes. Still liking Taylor Swift. And please, these headphones.
Bedroom: Just redone last year...now wants a big loft bed.
Sorry, luv, I know you no longer believe in Santa Claus....but that definately won't fit down the chimney.
all he wants...is a Nintendo DSi...that's it.
Boys are so easy. I didn't say inexpensive...but easy.
If you're looking for a great photographer on MV, here are some favorites that come to mind:
and Joe Mikos
...see if they can squeeze you in.
In pursuit of this year's ideal card, I found several appealing designs at Rainy Day and Bunch of Grapes, in Vineyard Haven.
If you're the online-shopper-type...you can find the above cards at Minted, Fine Stationery and Pear Tree Greetings. Adorable tartan plaid jacket at Kayce Hughes.
Reminder: December 10-12 is Christmas in Edgartown weekend...more on that coming up.
