For the past few years, we've had an Ugly Gift Exchange with the Wienses. I actually don't remember how we came up with this tradition, but it's definitely one that we have a blast shopping for. We got together for dinner at their home this year. In the past, I've always planted the idea in our kids of getting gifts for others. This year, our kids actually expressed that they wanted to exchange gifts with Charlotte and Levi, and that made me happy, to know that our kids wanted to express their love for their friends through gifts.
