I just had a horrific vision of my 4 year old crashing through your tree at a rate of about mach 10 with my 8 year old following after. Yikes.

I think I'll find a good sitter instead Thanks for letting me know, I appreciate it!

(Beautiful collection, btw.)

Instead of exchanging gifts, why don't we donate toys to a charity organization (a good one is Union Rescue Mission) There are lots of children here who never receive gifts and the holiday season is a time to give to those who normally wouldn't receive gifts.

That is a cool idea!! The only problem I see is that I can't find "bottle bags" for the booze in childrens Christmas wrapping patterens!!

Check the 99 Cent Only stores, you'll be surprised what you can find there!

Gift exchanges are always a fun idea - DolphinTiki & I are both up for it, whenever date you settle on.

For your holiday entertainment planning consideration:
--Big Bad Voodoo Daddy Swingin' Holiday Party at the House of Blues Anaheim, Friday, 12/03
--Brian Setzer Orchestra Christmas Extravaganza (w/ Royal Crown Review) at the Universal Amphitheatre Saturday, 12/18

We're hittin' both, so if'n you pick one of thoses dates, we'll be there late!

Me and the wifey are in (depending, of course, on the final date). I vote for no gift exchange - I like the charity idea.

Then at the Bahooka (or Sams seafood even) we could simply buy someone else in attendance a drink. Or everyone could buy me a drink.

Mrsmiley - that is not a nice thing to say. Have you ever had a young family member who is very ill (i.e., cancer, leukemia (a blood cancer), multiple sclerosis)or maybe you are about "only you" - some of these children are very ill - and these surprise gifts are very healing to them. Maybe you should do some charity work and not think about "alcohol" so much. Oh yea and those bottle bags do hold things other than liquor.

Remember - Hanford's post to TikiBong about his rudeness to new members - well I am a new member and your rudeness was aimed at me. So keep the aloha spirit and be nice.

As the Rev said - "he likes the charity thing" - and yes the 99 cent store does have okay gifts. So bring gifts for these children - and draw a name out of a drink glass and then buy that person a drink. You will benefit both ways

ALOHA!!!

Laney, I'd love to attend the party. My only bad weekend is 12/3-12/5. I'll go with the crowd on the gift swap and my teeny wahine's attendance.

OK, I was tossing around 2 dates, Dec.4 and Dec. 18.
Dec. 4th seems to be the best as far as reservations and due to the fact that there are no big events on that day. (tikifille, I hope you can make it even late or early for drinks)
I've decided to meet at Bahooka. I'd love to do dinner and share some bowls with everyone either at a big table or in our own area. I'll need conformations so I can make the reservations.
I'll be starting a new thread so I can keep count. Please respond with # of people so I can keep count.
As far as kids go, it's fine. I'll leave that up to individuals. I plan on bringing my son because he's old enough not to need to be entertained, he loves Bahooka, and can actually help out.

We will be doing the gift swap. I want EVERYONE to participate.

Giving to charity is always a nice thing to do (not only during the holidays, all year) but I will leave that up to individuals, give to your church, charity of choice, or any one of a number of toy drives this season.

You can also feel you are doing your part while participating in the gift swap by purchasing your gift from one of the many thrift stores that give to charity. Or, better yet, support our own Tiki community by getting your gift from one of our own artists or business owners (Ocianic Arts, Tiki Farm, Bamboo Ben's, House of Tiki, etc.)

I'm setting the limit at $15-$20 value. With tiki or Hawaiian themed gifts preferred. I'm also a sucker for funny white elephants, (maybe that's just me) so if you find a good one wrap it up! I'd love to see home made gifts too! If you are really stumped for a gift, e-mail me. I have a few ideas.
