Introducing Birchy M. Birchfield

Two weeks ago the Bob calls me at work and says "What did you order from Crate and Barrel?". I ordered nothing, I assumed it was from my mother. A few years ago my parents and I agreed that for Christmas, instead of trying to buy things for each other we would exchange Christmas decorations. Ornaments, things like that. She had told me that the thing she bought would be arriving soon. Bob says it is HUGE whatever it is. The box was rather large. Inside was another large box, and inside that box was a smaller box, and two decorative holiday kitchen towels. Inside the smaller box was this:

He is about 10 inches tall, and 12 inches long. He is covered in birch bark. Cooper keeps calling him a cow. Gus, one of the schnauzers, wants to eat him. But there he is, a very bizarre but oddly festive Christmas moose. And all I sent them was a set of three ornaments from Pottery Barn.

Interesting. A little odd, but in a good way.

Caused conversation at least. I am surprised Crate & Barrel did not name him that! He has a story to be told. Can't wait.
