Last week our friends got together for a Secret Santa event facilitated by Secret Santa Generator, which emails you with your anonymous gift exchange recipient. Since we are all busy, busy cityfolk, we also had to restort to using Doodle to select the most available date for all parties involved. All these dot com-ness led JP to dub our event, “the techiest Christmas party ever.” The day of the party, hilary ensued!

Ashley and Renée were pros with those lobster cookies. For next year, I am urging them to take their decorating skills to the next level.

Now on to the nifty gifts we exchanged!
