From shopping we went back to eating with this fantastic trifle that Ann made. After we had done enough eating and shopping for one day it was back to the Timberhouse for more stitching (are you surprised?). The evening brought on our 3rd annual ornament exchange, and what fun we have with this! Upon arrival we all put the ornament we've stitched (and kept top secret) in a paper bag that goes into a basket. Saturday night we take turns drawing names one by one picking ornaments. I'll just let the pictures do the talking.
