email to Mia....Dear Mia, I have no idea what to get Marc's family. I got Marc some cheese knives last night (he was embarrassed that we didn't have any at the party) - they are for his stocking! I got him a creme brulee set...the mix, bowls, and the iron to burn the sugar on the top - he loves cooking, loves creme brulee, so now he will have a little project. The map came - the 1960's school one - I stuck it in the closet and may sneak it out, wrap it and give it to Marc for Xmas. He still thinks it is lost in the mail. He will surely know what it is right away by the shape. Love, Meg
