White Elephant

Two years ago Jason and I decided to host a White Elephant Christmas party for our friends at our home.  We provided the food, drinks and atmosphere and each guest was asked to bring a gift for a gift exchange.  Some of the gifts are useful (candles, liquor, movies, etc.),  some are funny (Shake Weight, pillow pet), some are creative (beer coozy belt, gift card encased in a jell-o mold,) and some are just outright ridiculous and raunchy (I'll let your imagination take over here ☺).  We all had so much fun with it that it's become an annual event.  Here are just a couple pictures from last year:


This weekend is the 3rd annual Hayes White Elephant Christmas party.   So, my week is being spent cleaning, organizing and, starting Thursday, getting a TON of food ready.  I absolutely love entertaining and, like I've said before, I love cooking so it's a lot of fun.  This will also be the very first time that I will be away from Redmond over night.  eek!  He's going to Grandma and Grandpa's, so he's just across town (about 3 min away), but still.....eek!  I guess I'll just have to have a few cocktails to keep my mind otherwise occupied!
