Wishing you and your loved ones a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. This year has been a busy one for my little family and we started last Christmas by adding my sweet little boy into our family. I cannot imagine our family without him and he is truly a reminder of what this season is all about. I am excited for Christmas morning to see my daughter’s eyes light up and grateful that my sister-in-law will be able to join us in the afternoon and evening for a Christmas celebration and birthday celebration!
I convinced my husband this year to leave Santa’s presents unwrapped and I think it was the perfect choice. I didn’t want to use reusable wrapping (various cloth bags I have sewn), because the kids will come to recognize these bags and I didn’t want to use the one roll of wrapping paper I have, since they would suspiciously share the same paper as some of the other gifts. They have plenty of wrapping paper to tear through and reusable gift bags to open and it makes it that much more exciting to walk into the living room. Do you wrap your gifts from Santa or leave them out for your kiddos to see when they walk in the room?Merry Christmas! I would be tickled pink if you left a comment.
