On the weekend after my birthday, we had a Christmas party at our house with some friends. We had soup, salad, and cupcakes and had a white elephant gift exchange. It's always a bunch of fun with Lauren & Justin and Becky & Christopher! They also surprised me with a birthday twist on the Christmas party. They brought hats and ice-cream and sang the birthday song. Woot. It was a lot of fun! After opening white elephant gifts, we played a game and then watched the Christmas favorite, Elf! Then the boys played some video games. We had a great time! Thanks, guys!
