warm inside

Just watching the snow come down. We are having our 1st snowstorm and I'm happy to be warm and for the night. Cary is playing on the computer and I might read for awhile and enjoy the peppermint ice cream I bought! Tomorrow we are going shopping...he needs to buy gifts for a few people. Then I have my Girl's Night at my friend's house. We are doing a Yankee Swap and having a mexican night. Should be fun!

Hope everyone has a good night!

omgosh, I love peppermint ice cream! Wegmans has its own brand of it and I swear, I could eat the entire thing in one sitting.

I am not sure I will be able to explain a Yankee Swap and have it make sense! Basically everyone buys a gift of roughly the same dollar amt and wraps it. It is basically an exchange. Everyone draws a number and #1 gets to pick a gift first and so on. When you pick you open the gift. But the trick is that you can ask for anyone's gift who opened before you! It can get really fun towards the end and there is always one gift that everyone wants! I know I'm missing a few of the rules in there but that is the basic idea. Do they do Yankee Swaps anywhere else? It hadn't ocurred to me that it might be somethign that started as a New England thing ("yankee")!

like a 'white elephant' except those are supposed to be something silly from your home.
