White Elephant Christmas Party

I love planning parties and activities... I really do. This one we kept pretty simple
and so I actually enjoyed the party itself, not just planning it.

However, on the way there I managed to:
  • Slip on my way into Smith's (my feet flew out from under me, landing on my butt with an audience of customers and everything)
  • Shatter my serving plate for the fruit on the parking lot pavement
  • Shed a (little) tear of frustration when Josh wanted to put some snack bags of Fritos he found in the kitchen on my Cranberry Red and Deep Sage color-coordinated table. I'd put a lot of thought into how I wanted the table to look, and Fritos were not a part of my vision. Luckily, I got over the last little burst of stress and had a such a fun time.

We brought a cute pet mouse as our gift. Pretty funny :) we have more pictures and stories about our ward activities here:
