Ornament exchange

The Ornament Exchange

A few days ago I mentioned that I would be attending my first ornament exchange. My mom and I purchased ornaments together at Hallmark on Thursday and the exchange was on Saturday at our church.

Saturday morning I did a 13 mile run (BRRRR) and wrapped my ornament (jk I made my mom wrap it because I stink at wrapping gifts).

My mom and I arrived at the church around noon and it was decorated so beautifully! We sang Christmas songs, had a Bible study, ate delicious food, and picked a number from a hat to get our ornament.

We had chicken salad on croissants, beef vegetable soup (above), chili, and cake + cookies.

This is the lovely ornament I received:“Be still and know that I am God” —> PERFECT for me.

Overall, it was a really fun experience and I can’t wait to go to the ornament exchange next year!

What have you been up to this weekend?!
