Franka: “Largest gift in the lot. Let’s see what’s inside?”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -73

Franka: “Oh my this is from Patois. So soft.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -74

Franka: “There is a lovely beach bag…”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -75

Franka: “…a pair of groovy sunglasses. These are really cute.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -76

Franka: “…And a beach hoodie. I love it!”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -77

Zola: “Why don’t you model it all for us?” Franka: “That’s a good idea.”

 

So she proceeds to display the gifts with a brief modeling moment.

[APPLAUSE] Zola: “Lovely, lovely!! We should put you on the catwalk next show!”

Franka returns to her seat and then it’s Ashante’s turn at the gift exchange game.

Bianca: “Lovely setting I thought.” Ashante: “Beautiful!” Persephone: “Exquisite!”

 

Reluctantly she holds up the necklace for everyone to see.

Gift Exchange 2016 -84

Franka: “It’s perfect for your complexion Ashante.” Ashante: “Franka I agree.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -86

Dania: “Don’t get too attached to those gifts Ashante. The game is not over.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -87-1

Ashante: “Thanks for the reminder Dania.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -88

Dania: “You three can stop giving me that look. I know perfectly well that the same applies to me.”

 

Without warning Zola bursts out in laughter.

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -89

Zola: “Ha ha ha ha ha!!!” Franka: “Zola?”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -90

Zola: “Ha ha, so sorry, ha ha ha, I can’t contain myself!!!”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -91

Zola: “My apologies, but it’s my turn and Dania, I want that bag.” Franka: “Ahh, that’s the reason for the spontaneous laughter. I love it!”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -92

Dania: “Drats.” Cindy: “Oh dear.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -93

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -94

Dania: “No hair off my back. Take it.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -95

Franka: “He he he!!! Absolutely hilarious! He he he!!!”

 

But as a gift is taken it has to be replaced and as Dania cannot take the bag back from Zola, she goes for the next gift which has caught her eye.

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -96

Bianca thinking: “I knew it.” Dania: “Ashante, your gifts please. Let’s see how much longer Franka laughs at me now.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -97

Dania: “Come on come on. We don’t have all night.” Cindy: “Dania take it easy.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -98

Ashante: “I have no problem giving them to you Dania, but please check the attitude at the door.” Dania: “Oh please Ashante.”

 

The game proceeds and Ashante gets another gift.

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -99

Ashante: “Here we go again.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -100

Ashante: “Can this top the necklace and cashmere scarf?” Persephone: “Only way to know is by opening it.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -101

Bianca: :Ohhhhhhh… That is the best gift tonight!” Persephone: “That is a really nice gift.” Dania: “What is it?”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -102

Bianca: “It’s a five night trip for two to St. Lucia Sandals.” Zola: “Perfect for you and Kevin.” Franka: “WOW!” Dania: “Hmm.” Cindy: “Nice.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -103

Ashante: “Actually it’s the perfect gift for Persephone.” Persephone: “What?”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -104

Ashante: “It’s your turn next right?” Persephone: “Yes I have 7.” Ashante: “You need the perfect setting for Geffrey to propose finally.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -105

Bianca: “Oh my, that’s so nice of you Ashante.” Ashante: “Take it!” Persephone: “You sure?”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -106

Persephone: “I was just going to take the last gift in the pile.” Ashante: “No I’ll take that. You take the trip.” Persephone: “Thanks so much Ashante. This may just be what Geffrey needs to finally pop the question.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -107

Ashante: “Cindy please pass me the last gift.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -108

Gift Exchange 2016 -109

Cindy: “No problem.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -110

Gift Exchange 2016 -111

Persephone: “If you don’t like it we can swap.” Ashante: “Nonsense.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -112

Ashante: “Oh yum yum yum. Parisian truffles!!”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -113

Persephone: “Be honest, you don’t like them that much.” Ashante: “I adore these!”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -114

Ashante: “Girl trust me, Kevin and I love these…” [wink, wink] Persephone: “Ohhhhhhhh…”

Gift Exchange 2016 -115

Zola: “So Cindy as you’re number one you have a choice to pick anything then the game ends.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -116

Cindy: “Ok I think I will give up this lovely tea set for the cashmere scarf and necklace.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -117

Dania: “Cindy, you’re joking right?”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -118

Cindy: “No I am not. It’s time for your comeuppance.” Dania: “That’s how it is huh?” Cindy: “Yes it is.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -120

Ashante: “I love this game.” Persephone: “Me too.”

Gift Exchange 2016 -122

Zola: “Alright ladies, it’s time to eat.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -123

Zola: “I invite you all to partake in the buffet.” Cindy: “Great I’m famished.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -124-1

Dania: “No meat for me.” Zola: “Well try some tomato and basil spaghetti rolls.”

 

Gift Exchange 2016 -125-1

Zola: “Or some vegetable lasagna.” Dania: “I’ll take both.”

 

The ladies serve themselves food and spend the rest of the night catching up.
