Bailey Christmas Party

Have you ever gone to a Christmas party, and felt confident that your gift was really funny, and perhaps the best of the bunch? I will never make those kind of assumptions when Tom's family is involved. I am sure Sara and Morgan couldn't sleep last night-they were so excited. I noticed a strange electricity in the air around Sara and Morgan as my hand drifted in the direction of the mysterious box. A hush fell on the room, much like a snugly blanket with arms. I don't know what I was expecting, but it for sure wasn't this...

So, I am going to spell it out for you:
-Goat for wedding present
-Rat for Christmas last year
-Two doves (not sure if they are turtle or not)
I can't wait until next year. I am hoping for a pony. (This is Tom's joke that I am regifting to you all.)

They take it to a WHOLE new level. I'm in awe. That good kind that says I'm not worthy.

So, what were the rest of the gifts? Spill it. I think Tom has given some of the funniest White Elephant gifts I have ever seen. Unbeatable. Except by Sara and Morgan.

Tom gave an actual white elephant. I gave some full length arm tatoos, Amy made a snugly blanket with arms (that I am so going to make with one of my old shirts.) A fly swatter clock. A book about romance. Jellied fish nastiness, book of mormon battles-playing cards, yo yo, growing dinosaur (correct me if I am wrong)plus more!

That is the best! My mind is swirling with ideas for our white elephant party this weekend.

Annie said...

I love that idea and only wish it had come a week earlier. I could have totally used that. Fun!

I am getting seriously jealous here over your Sunday dinners and Christmas parties. You gize moved to Idaho at a great time.
For my next white elephant gift I am now going to try and round up 8 maids-a-milking.
