First ~ these are the TWO BEST LADIES EVER!!! This two precious ladies are my co-leaders and they are pretty awesome!
Ok, now on to our Christmas gathering! A few years ago, the girls wanted to make their Christmas Awards more of a party. We started meeting at my house, to make it less formal. They started out with cookie baking contest, and it has morphed into a dessert battle this year. We have pizza, do awards, have dessert & vote and then exchange gifts. We have done a variety of gift swaps also - from books to ornaments to drawing names. This year, we did a true white elephant/dirty santa exchange - and they let the mom's play! The fought over prize gift was a painting that one of the mom's had done. I ended up with a collection of happy meal toys! Great times with my girls!!
Most of them - discussing how short I have become..
And my crazy drama girl - being herself!!
