  1. a word of advice for anyone looking for that ornament: please, please don't hesitate to stop in at your local hallmark and ask about pre-ordering it. you won't be charged until it comes in, promise. at my tiny little hallmark out in the northern suburbs, we've already got close to 200 requests for it... and it doesn't come out until july. they're putting more into production, but those may not be available until later in the year and might not be a lot. basically, just don't wait until december to buy it, we may not have any left! :)
