It's a WRAP!

Finally. Here's our before-last-night picture:

And after working feverishly until almost midnight so that our child would be able to see presents under the tree:

No, not all of these are his. They are a good mix of mine, Sound Man's, and Kiddo's. With a few others thrown in. Which means I'm STILL not done with wrapping. Ugh. It will be another long night, with all the stuff I have to do today. So, since I'm up to my eyeballs in tasks for today, what else am I doing? Blogging, of course!

But Natalie at I Am Not is showing us her wrapped presents, and I wanted to, too, so here you go.

I love to decorate presents. Notice I didn't say wrap presents. I don't like the wrapping part. Just the pretty bows and stuff. Here's just a couple of the presents under our tree right now.I love big, honkin' bows.

And simple small ones.

And ones with fringe.

And all the ones in between.

I lurve presents under the tree. I told my husband when we were first married that I didn't care if he had to buy three pairs of socks and put one sock in six boxes, I wanted lots of presents under the tree. It's not that I want a bunch of stuff, but I do want lots of pretty boxes with my name on them. Is that insane? Probably, but I don't care. It makes me happy. So, even though there may not be a whole lot going on inside the presents, at least they have presence. Get it? Presence? Presents? I crack myself up.

Merry Christmas!

I'm lovin' all the presents under the tree. My tree is pitiful looking because of the lack of gifts. I've been procrastinating wrapping all the gifts. However, like you, the few that I have wrapped made me realize that I do enjoying making them look pretty. This year I used some really wide ribbon that I had laying around...and it looks great on the gifts tied with a big simple bow.

Merry Christmas!

Oh my goodness - what a gorgeous tree! The photo turned out beautifully with the soft, shining lights.

I too love the look of pretty paper-wrapped boxes under the tree!

Merry Christmas to you and yours!

That makes me want to come over and sit at your tree! Love it! Thanks for playing with me! Merry Christmas!

Your presents are gorgeous. We couldn't even put pretty bows on our packages this year with Midnight the terror kitten!

I totally didn't get into dolling the gifts up this year. I hardly did any bows or ribbon, but didn't miss it for some reason. Next year!!!
