Christmas Cheer

I snapped a few pictures with Music Guy's iPhone last night so the quality is not perfect but pretty good for a phone.

The first is a wooden buoy with the airport code for Nantucket on it (duah Kimba) I also have one for every "bigger" town on the cape. HYN, YAR, FAL, PRT, CC. I picked them up a few years ago at The Christmas Tree Shop. They were not meant to be ornaments but I bought everyone that had and have been using them as so since. Last year I attached the FAL to a gift I got my old boss who has a second home in Falmouth. Needless to say his wife simply loved it.
You can't see the Pats one as well, stupid iPhone camera. But you do get a look at the CC buoy.

I think this little guy speaks for himself!


And for all you Midwest ladies I've added my all time favorite!


I can't wait to add more to our collection!


Tomorrow we have our work team lunch aka holiday lunch. We can't call it a holiday anything or the company will not pick it up the tab. It's always a good time good food and lots o drinks flowing, mind you it's starting at noon. We do the typical Yankee Swap and only a few actually get something nice for the $20 limit. Most of the time it's items regifted, but it's all its suppose to be fun so you can't get to bent out of shape. I put together the lunch so I'm a little stressed out today with the final details. But as long as when we arrive there drinks on the way no one really will mind.

Anyone have any fun holiday parties coming up this weekend?

More to come later!

If by "fun holiday party" you mean getting together with YOU, LIBBY, MEL, LISAGH and J then I SURE DO and I CAN'T WAIT!

I love your tree! I am counting down to the day I have a place big enough for a real tree. :) I'm cohosting a christmas party this weekend with a white elephant gift exchange. I want to find a funny, yet preppy gift. Somehow I gravitate to pink which wouldn't work for the guys. ;)

Glad to hear someone else is doing a Yankee Swap too! We're on our way Saturday evening to the main Christmas party of our group of friends, and the highlight is always a Yankee Swap. It's all very official, including an m.c. and posted rules (some named after past years' violators).

You're sure to have a great weekend with the gals!

Friday is our Holiday Bunko...or as my husband calls it Drunko!
Have a blast this weekend...can't wait to hear all about it!

I've never heard of Yankee swap before, being from Alabama. Is it like dirty santa or white elephant?

Kimba Rimba said...

It's the same thing, as both of those!
