Christmas Party

We held our first ever Christmas party last night. We had so much fun! We started with a game of Catch Phrase. Then we ate some yummy food! Then it was time for White Elephant gifts! For the white elephant game, in order to get a gift you have to roll dice, if it is doubles, then you can take a gift from the center or steal from someone else. The presents stay wrapped until everyone has a gift. We ended the night with the famous couch game!
