Live Listing My Family's White Elephant Gift Exchange

The time has come 🎁
  1. My mom surprisingly did not fight me when I said I don't want to participate in this reindeer game this year.
    I'm honestly SHOCKED.
  2. She made me cut up 23 pieces of paper for people to draw from and get their positions in the exchange.
  3. The numbers have been picked and people are already angry over their early numbers.
    I don't even blame them, 2-10 are shitty numbers. There's 23 people total.
  4. People are reminiscing about the fights they've gotten into during this game over the years.
    Awwww cute!

    She got a Madeline plush and I'm actually jealous
