~this year’s tree that we managed to put up over the weekend~
This year, I’m feeling like Christmas is sort of sneaking up on me and I am not prepared at all. I’ve yet to finish up my shopping list, shop for gifts and luckily, I managed to squeeze in some time to put up the tree over the weekend. This year, I’m hoping to avoid the crowds by getting most of my shopping done online. But I better get cracking soon, or my gifts may miss the Christmas Day deadline. One of my favorite things to do once my shopping is done and everyone’s gifts are lined up in the living room waiting to be wrapped, is tying it all together with coordinated, fun, wrapping paper and bows. When I was younger, my best friend and I would always try to outdo the other by seeing who’s presents were wrapped more creatively or who had the better paper. It was a fun way of challenging each other to see who could create the better looking gifts. I have to say, she would usually beat me each year. I hope you are all enjoying your holiday preparations. Here are a few of my pics from this year and last.
