A Gift Exchange Party + Christmas Pajama Party

At the end of November I decided that I wanted to have a girls Christmas party at my house. I love having friends over with kiddos but thought it would be fun to do just girls. I whipped up a cute little invite on shutterfly and texted it to my girlfriends. We had such a fun time! I asked everyone to bring their favorite app and a wrapped gift of about $20. We spent the evening drinking a festive cocktail (More on that tomorrow!) eating some yummy food and enjoying each others company.

We played the gift exchange dirty santa style. We each drew a number and you could either steal someones gift or grab a new one. Both gifts I open ended up getting stolen! A pair of gloves and stud earrings were the hot item this year! I can't wait to do this again next year!

Is there anything cuter than kids in Christmas jammies? I love picking out new jammies for my boys each Christmas, they always end up with several pairs. I usually have one pair done with a cute appliqué or monogram and the rest are from Carters or Target.

Now, we all know how cooperative kids can be. Add in a one year old and a testy 3 year old and it was near impossible. I bribed, I clapped, I sang, and really I did't get anything too great. But I think they sure are cute and I love that Jack put his arm around Graham!

I can't figure out why these are so grainy, whoops..I need to really learn how to use my big camera
