For the past few years we did the white Elephant gifts for Christmas we think it is fun and takes the seriousness out of gift giving! This year my sister in law decided all by herself that we have to pick names! Why do some people think they have all the decision making in a situation like this? I have my white elephant gifts already together!!!
For those of you who do not know what white elephant gift giving is you take something you do not use anymore and wrap it we then would put our names in a hat. Pick names and then choose a gift if you open a gift and like one that someone else has you can take there gift and give that person your opened gift only on your turn. We like to have one gag gift for the yr to make it interesting! :)

Is it at her house this year? I look at it like if I am hosting the holiday I should get to decide. A few years ago my MIL decided that she would be coming for Thanksgiving to our house and in the process starting inviting her family as well. People were really hacked off when we had dinner in the afternoon instead of at 11 am (when she thinks it has to be). I invited my family and did it the way I wanted to, of course that was not good enough for all of those people I didn't invite (MIL did). She has decided she is coming here for Christmas, I'm waiting to see the response when we have a Christmas brunch and then dinner in the evening. I hate rushing Christmas morning and this year I won't have to.
