Bob, Jake, Caroline and I have Winter Birthday's which are celebrated at the Poole/Springer Christmas Celebration. Bob's birthday is in November, Jake and Caroline are in December and I have a birthday in January. Jake and Caroline were both born in 1991 two weeks apart-December 12 and December 26.
A Poole/Springer Christmas Eve wouldn't be complete without our gift swap. Everyone must contribute a wrapped gift, we draw numbers out of a hat to see who goes first. The first player (this time it was Steve) chooses and unwraps a gift. Player No. 2 then may either steal from Player No. ! or unwrap a gift. We continue this madness until everyone has a gift. We often create special rules about how many times a gift may be stolen in each round. Jake is notorious for stealing--yep he got my clock radio alarm this year. The game was fun but everyone enjoyed holding the newest member of the family--Molly Caroline.
