It's here already! It's hard to believe that I've run out of time again. Last minute wrapping finally done Christmas Eve. At least I wasn't doing last minute shopping then too. We got most of our packages out in time to arrive... close to Christmas... I still have one package to ship and the Christmas letters to mail. (I'm sorry this is late, Grandma and Dad, but I wanted to include the most recent postings from my blog for you to enjoy.)
After a rough day at work (a half day, and Christmas Eve! - you'd think it would've been one of the easiest days of the year, but no...), I made it home to relaxing Christmas music, the lighted tree, some eggnog, and the Wrapping Center. For those folks that get their presents wrapped last, I have to apologize. I always get a little more sloppy with the bows and ribbons. Some may only get bows, and where I can, I double up the presents and use one ribbon on two gifts (books work well for this). In the beginning, it's always fun. Towards the end, it's a race against the looming deadline (and my aching back).
Presents wrapped and under the tree, pickle ornaments hidden, now it's time to play games and really relax. Greg's mom spent Christmas Eve with us, chatting, eating, and playing cards. I over-indulged in the Macadamia Nut Brittle my friend Stacy made just for me. Oh, sweet goodness!! (And don't forget the sugar high...)
