This evening we had our extended family over for a gifts exchange. We started by playing with the kids and having them color plastic cups that then we could melt down. It was a fun little craft.
Next, we introduced our family to a new game/tradition that will hopefully stick. We had gift cards wrapped up and then played a white elephant exchange still game with them. It was a lot of fun! The funny memory from this year was Isaiah opened a TON of the gifts. Somehow his gift cards kept getting stolen, but he didn't mind at all because his favorite part was opening each present.
Esther cracked us up. Every gift that she opened up she would walk around the circle and make sure to show each person the special treasure that she got. It was so sweet to watch her thankfulness!
