CHRISTMAS PARTY FUN!

I went to my friends women's bible study/Christmas gift exchange party last night. She is a really good friend of mine, who's husband used to be one of the Pastors at our church. They planted a church closer to their house, so I don't get to see her as much as I like. But, we do make time to see each other, plus our kids are really good friends. Last night, they combined their womens bible study with their white elephant gift exchange party. You know that game where you could "steal" someone else's gift!! It was a fun night! First we ate, then went over their bible study (great book by Elizabeth George), and then had the gift exchange, and finally a game! I always have so much fun with these ladies, and I love spending time with my friend. If nobody was around, I think we'd get even crazier!!!!! Well, I was so blessed because she gave everyone their own gift, plus the gift you got from the gift exchange! I love everything I got, and I especially LOVE this decorated paint can that Carolyn made!! I think I only have two friends that blog, and she is one of them! But, she is so crafty, and I even asked her that if someone "stole" my gift, could she make me another one!! I think I'm going to keep it up all year round because it matches my kitchen! Anyway, here are some random pictures from last night!

Me & Carolyn (scrapping servant)
My friend Mary is holding the can that I "stole" from her!
LOL, don't know what happened to her eye! She was trying to smell the bath soap!
Carolyn trying to figure out what she got!My beloved can! She tied ribbons on the top & wrapped paper around it. On the side, there is "key" to open the lid if I choose to shut it completely. It's so cute and whimsical! I love it!!
