Christmas Party

Last night was our Christmas party for our friends. I always make too much food, and then everyone brings a dish as well. We did a Mexican theme this year, complete with very yummy Margaritas! We always have a "Yankee Swap". For those of you who do not know what that is - everyone brings a gift. We pick numbers and the person with #1 chooses a gift and opens it. #2 chooses a gift, opens it, and can either keep it or trade with #1, #3 opens and can keep or trade with #1 or #2, etc, etc, I got this great snowman I knew I would lose it, and I did, for one of those Hickory Farms cheese and sausage packages. But DH came through and stole it back for me when it was his turn. We had a good time - the mess is all cleaned up, and it is very quiet around here today! I think I may actually have some time to knit.

Aren't those swaps fun? My bookclub does the same swap--only with books--at our holiday meal and again at our "Trashy Beach Book Potluck" in the summer.

We had a similar 'swap' for the first time this year. Lots of fun. I got cool photo holders. Congratulations on your snowman.
