Tina & Krista's Christmas Ornament Exchange Party

Last night, Tina & Krista hosted the annual ladies' Christmas ornament exchange party. It was an enjoyable evening of wonderful food, great friends and laughter. We will definitely miss Krista and her family as they prepare to move to Washington, D.C. at the end of the month.
Roxy brought chocolate brownies topped with fresh raspberries - yummy!
The spread was amazing and we all ate more than we needed to.
Stephanie smiles two-fisted with her hot buttered rum in one hand and water in the other.
Tina's beautiful tree!

Angie introduced a great game where she had prepared cards with all the ladies' names on it and a list of adjectives. We all wrote on each other's cards with words such as "zany, effervescent, fierce, lively, cute, beautiful, etc." as a way to describe each person. At the end, we read each other's attributes and guessed the person.
Heather, Angie & Leanne listening to the kind words spoken for each of us.
The ornament exchange entailed rules. We could open up a new gift or steal one that was already opened with a three steal limit. We all enjoyed our lovely ornaments and my bright turquoise one is hanging on the tree at home.
Merry Christmas!
