This year we decided we would give each other a Christmas Decoration - either bought or handmade. We do a random draw so it's always a bit of pot luck.
I made this little tree.
and I received these lovely angels.
(very appropriate that I should receive the angels...)
As tradition dictates - I also made angels for everyone.
You can see all the previous angels here. I've been doing this since 2002.
(They are a bit sparklier in real life)
(Believe it or not I have a plan and part of the requirements for the 2019 version..
absolutely no excuse not to have them ready early next year...so she says.)
We talked about what we would do for Birthdays and Christmas for 2019 - that is really looking ahead (especially for Christmas and of course we will all be well prepared...(???maybe)
It's a fun group - there have been some changes over the years but we have now been going for over 20 years... a lot has happened in those years of course...but its good that we are all still friends.
