My newest decoration

Our Bunco group has a white elephant exchange for our last gathering of the year. We always set a $10 limit and the theme is Christmas decorations...how fun! I am a stealer. As far as I'm concerned, the white elephant exchanges are no fun if no one steals...so if you want to keep your gift, you'd better hide it well! heehee!!!

This year, I stole Joanne's gift....can you see why?
Isn't he just the cutest little thing? I knew exactly what I would do with him as soon as I saw him! I hung him in one of the great room windows and then used fishing line to hang these sparkly snowflakes I picked up on MAJOR clearance last year all around him. What do you think? Personally, I LOVE IT!!!
Of course, I wanted to know where my friend Jen got him, since I wanted another one for the other window. She said they were at Sam's Club, and I am so excited, because on Sunday I went there and found them! They came in a pack of two, one snowman and one Santa. I guess you'll just have to wait to see the Santa, though!!! :) Maybe tomorrow!

I love it! I saw that at Sam's last weekend and almost bought it... but didn't. Nowhere to put it here where it's safe from curious cats.

Adorable!

I'm the stealer too. But sometimes I feel bad b/c then the person who gave the gift I have thinks i don't want it~

very cute!
I'm horrible at Dirty Santa. I always bring something I REALLLY want...and then I ALWAYS try to steal back the thing I brought! Isn't that awful? But hey..its the only way I can justify buying myself such unneccesary stuff! ha ha
