Christmas Party

Frank and Linda recently hosted a Christmas party at their home.
In the festively decorated home, the usual game was played with Frank's rules of only taking a desired gift three times. With lots of laughter and joking, the men's favorite gift of the evening must have been the large set of tools thatmost ofthe men were eyeing and hoping to get although the ladies present were sure the guys already had more than they use.
The favorite ladies' gift was definitely the leather handbag that was chosen by all who could before the third time landed the handbag a home with one lucky lady.
Everyone went home happy and stuffed with delicious food!
