White Elephant Gift Exchange

Hi Everyone,

We hosted our annual gift exchange last night and had a blast. When my children wake up I will have them show me how to download pics from the camera and post a couple on my blog. Everyone brought some yummy food, the fellowship was great and the gifts were definitely corny at times. My friend, Lynn, decided to shop in her garage and brought a huge box filled with things like a broken radio, water guns, etc. Luckily for us she also included some gift cards and a lottery ticket. If we win tonight, we're all going on a cruise over the holidays, ok, on us.

Christmas is such a wonderful time to reconnect with family and friends. I wish all of you could have made it last night, but I also know that we all have lives and especially kids who are our priority right now. They are a blessing (most of the time). I'm realizing how quickly the time is going with them and it makes me sad. There is a beautiful song that Mandisa (from American Idol) did with Matthew West called "Christmas makes me cry". Check it out on Youtube.

Well, the house is quiet. The girls had friends over last night and who knows how late they were up. That's the only reason I don't care too much that I can't hear out of my left ear. It works out because I just lay on my good ear and snooze away.

I'll post more later. Have a blessed day. Remember to hug those that God has put in your life and give others who don't live near you a call. It's the next best thing.

Remember Jesus is the Reason for the Season!!!!!

YOu know, you can post youtube videos on your blog....if you want to post the video that you were refering to. Let me know-if you are not sure how to do it. Short version....go to the video and click the link that says "embed" and you can embed it directly from youtube or else you can copy and paste the code.

Sounds like such a fun time! Since I couldn't come, I made cookies for us, and they burnt! It was my first time in this oven, so disappointing. But they were good anyway!
