5. What do you do with all those Christmas cards with photos of friends and their kids? I don't really get those, but I would keep them

Today's was work's annual Christmas party..usually we do a White Elephant but this time we did it differently. We sat in chairs across from each other and had to pass the presents in the direction the story Paulette was reading said (like "grandma LEFT the house and went ACROSS the street"). It wasn't really that fun to me, but other people seemed to like it. I definitely prefer White Elephants. We opened the gift we ended up with one by one and got to trade them at the end if you wanted to. I got a really nice green and blue fluffy scarf..the person who brought it told me she made it!! That is SO cool, that makes it extra special :D

oh yeah, and worst journey in the world #4 LOL )
