~an emotional start~~a holiday performance~~final decorating~ ~a wrapping session~I have to admit something...as organized as I am, I am a recovering late night Christmas Eve wrapper. as long as I can remember, I've been up wrapping gifts into the early hours of Christmas morning. this is not something I'm proud of but something I wanted to change. so this year we added a "wrap day" to our December Daily calendar.
having a few extra vacation days to take by the end of the year, Mark took off Thursday for the work day. I can't thank him enough for helping with what is usually a huge project. we now have 95% of our gifts wrapped, and the family gifts that needed to be mailed left us today. to say that I'm excited with the progress we made yesterday is an understatement. no late night wrapping for me! I think I'll join lisa..."I'm going to sit and knit on Christmas Eve." want to join us? pull up a chair, everyone's welcome.
~a start to a baking weekend~
