I signed up to participate in a White Elephant gift party a few weeks back at Margaret's blog Nanny Goats in Panties. You know how these things work, right? It is a gift exchange where one is afforded the opportunity to unload a gift you received that, though you might swear you thought you knew the person giving it, clearly that person does not know you or they never would've given you such a ridiculous piece of junk. So, you re-gift the present to another friend and hilarity ensues.
My White Elephant trade partner was Babs, of Beetle's Memories & Ramblings blog fame, and I have to say that while I found the gift to be appropriately cheesy... My wanna-be-pyromaniac sons thought they were the best gifts ever! Words cannot do the present justice, so the kids helped me put together a video thank-you card that is as random as the gift.
