Last night the siblings started a new Christmas tradition. Instead of buying each other gifts, we decided to gift ourselves with time spent together. So yesterday we met up in Seattle at Palomino restaurant for and early dinner and a white elephant gift exchange.
A lot of thought and junk cleaning was put into these gifts....such as:
The coveted "Bumpits" that I should have stolen from Meagan. Mistake on my part!
A really nice BB-Q condiment set...
This lovely tissue box holder (call if interested!)...
And what gift exchange is complete without a Snuggie???!! There was also artwork, a dancing/singing poinsettia and a few other trinkets. I think everyone was "really happy" with their gifts!!!
We did a little shopping while the guys took our gifts to the car.
We went to Pacific Place and Westlake Center. There were so many people out including an organized group of over a thousand Santa's! Bands were playing, carolers singing, street performers and just a great feeling of festiveness all around!!
We ended the night at Starbucks with a hot drink and conversation.
This was my favorite night this season!!! I'm so blessed to have such great "sisters and brothers"!! I hope we do this every year!!!! And I hope Meg gives me another chance at the Bumpits!!!
