Secret Santa

We started our Secret Santa at work yesterday. I really love this gift exchange we do every year. It's a lot of fun and not at all expensive. We give one gift a day from the dollar store for 3 days, and on the fourth day we give a $5 gift.

Seems not everyone sticks to the $1 gift rule, though. This is my gift yesterday:

This adorable little frame must have cost more than a dollar! Anyway, I love it!!

And this is my gift today.

A Christmas mug, hot chocolate and some Hershey's kisses. See? More than $1 I'm sure!

It snowed like crazy today. I had a slow ride to work,and then I parked in the patient parking structure because I did not want to deal with cleaning the snow from my car after I got off. On the way home, the roads were snow covered but not too bad. It didn't take me too much longer than normal. I hate driving in the snow. It's pretty to look at though. I need to take some pictures to post. It's supposed to snow again on Sunday.

Looks like we'll have a white Christmas this year!

I still have some shopping left to do which means that I will be going to the mall on Saturday! I will be getting a early start for sure!

I went to the mall today; first time in about ten years. I thought I remembered which door I came in, then went out the wrong one. Finally, found the right door; then couldn't find my car!! A security guard helped me and another guy. The last guy said "Is this it" DUH - I had walked right past it at least 12 times. I'm never going again!!! hahahaha

Love your gifts, and yeah I'd say they went of the $1.00 mark. Have a great weekend, Jeanette. ((HUGS))

That picture frame is great. I've never seen one like it before, it's really unusual. Lucky you to get such nice gifts.

Those are some great gifts! Those dollar stores sure have a load of good stuff in them, I was amazed.

Don't get lost in the parking lot! (still smiling at Sally's comment). :-)

Merry Christmas! We are having very cold weather today. I'm not sure about the snow forecast yet.

Thanks for stopping by Jeanette and your sweet comment. I'm with you on not liking to drive in the snow. Can't avoid it living in New England though lol. Very cool Secret Santa gifts! Have a wonderful holiday!
