MY ORNAMENT SWAP

My annual Ornament Swap with the ladies from church was tonight and we had so much fun!!! There were 38 ladies here and so much food until my counter tops were full and the buffet and dining room table was covered. I wanted a picture with us all in it but that was impossible because of the number.
As I look at these two picture I notice that several did not get in either picture (shame on you girls). We had door prizes, played our own version of "Do You Know the Lyrics" and of course, Dirty Santa with our Ornament Swap. My husband watched the ballgame on the TV in the basement and he told me that he could hear all the fun we were having during "game time".


This is a picture of the ornaments all wrapped before the swapping began.

I wish you could have seen all the food. I made this picture as the food was just coming in from only one spot in my kitchen. I absolutely love having people over and this is one event I look forward to each year. Someone said we may have to move it to the church fellowship hall because of the numbers, but as long as the ladies don't mind sitting on my stairs and any place else when all the chairs are taken....it will continue to be here.
