Christmas Exchange Party Fun

I love hosting my annual cookie/ ornament exchange. It is such festive fun and a rare time to have all my Jonesboro friends all together. 

These girls all love an excuse to leave the kids at home and come visit, eat and score lots of cookies and a new ornament. I love hearing the laughter and excitement in the walls of our home. 

I always wonder how "dirty" the dirty Santa game will be, but it's usually not too bad. It's always funny to see that one friend who keeps losing her ornament. Luckily, it wasn't me this time! 

This year it was my beautiful and fun neighbor, Lindi. She got the bean bag on the floor and the brunt of the game. I loved that it was her though. It was fun and she's a great sport about it all. She did end up with a fun ornament in the end. 

My church friends and mamas make me feel so loved. I'm blessed with friends from several circles in Jonesboro. That ole saying about having a church family is truth. I pity those who do not have one. 

It's serious business when the cookies start getting swaped. This picture is perfect. I loved the sound and the excitement coming from that dining room. 

Having friends to be silly with is the greatest for a comical ole gal like me. I'm glad God sees fit to always surround me with those like myself no matter where I am in life. 

Oh, those cookies! If you don't attend an exchange at Christmas, come to mine or host one! You won't be disappointed.
