The silver lining....

Here's the up-side of the Christmas parties I was whining about a few weeks ago (between the me and the kids, we ended up attending 13 parties!!!):

Clockwise from the top: A beautiful umbrella stand, a set of 2 Mikasa candle holders, a huge box of yummy senbei crackers, a set of 2 tea cups, an adorable snowman full of white chocolate hot cocoa mix, a set of 5 square dessert plates, a huge assortment of gift tags (I only put 1/2 in the photo), an egg baby in a basket, a set of 2 gorgeous champagne flutes, a laquered wood candy dish, a pretty scroll, a great wall calendar, and in the center, a Mikasa Christmas platter.

Totally awesome gifts! They were all very thoughtful and I loved each and every one!

Although I loved every single gift, really, really loved them all, if I absolutely HAD to pick a favorite, I think it would be the umbrella stand. It's something I never would have thought of for myself, and definitely wouldn't have ever bought for myself, but I LOVE it!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Generally I would say this rules out the chance to re-gift, but if you must... send some of that loot my way!

LOL, the people I would re-gift to don't read this blog! And in a few months you'll have forgotten about all of it, so you'll never realize you got a re-gifted gift!
