Yesterday I hosted my annual girls holiday party - Girls Gifts and Garland V. I can hardly believe this has been the fifth year that this party has taken place. That means we have been in our house for five Christmases!
We have settled into a traditional rhythm with the party. The girls each bring some food or wine to share. We nosh on some appetizers and champagne punch while everybody arrives and then we sit down for a dinner. After dinner we exchange gifts. Each year we exchange something different in a less than $15 budget. The first year was books, then champagne flutes, cookbooks, earrings and this year was scarves. Some years have more exchanges than others...this year there were a lot of scarves changing hands as people "stole" and traded. I really look forward to this party every year and this year did not disappoint.
