Yesterday we had a White Elephant gift exchange. My "prize": three wonderfully etched petri dishes, made by Lance and Hannah. People here are so talented and creative. That includes the wooden chalice by Ian, art by Marissa, etched wine glasses made by Joe, and many more!
One first for me was having a stocking! This morning I opened up the wonderful little gifts inside, courtesy of several at Palmer Station. My husband Ken and I always traveled to family for the Holidays, so we never had our own stuffable stockings.
Yesterday we focused on Christmas, and today we celebrated Hanukkah, complete with latkes and dreidel - Latkes are so tasty!!!
