All Wrapped Up

IMG_2059 IMG_2060

The other night I was looking at all the gifts lying around that needed to be wrapped and it was overwhelming. I don't mind wrapping gifts, but I do have to be in the mood. So, I thought I would let the kids do some...what a great idea that turned out to be! They were more than willing to help, and Landon was downright giddy over the prospect of using tape! He finished an entire roll, and was near finishing a second when I cut him off! He was really inventive with his wrapping using several methods and many scraps of leftover paper to decorate his packages. I figured that if it made him happy, what could it hurt? Zoe worried about hers looking perfect and she ended up doing a really nice job, but she is nearly 7 years older than Landon! I will have to remember to recruit them the next time I have a bunch to wrap, it sure saved me a lot of time!

That's so cool that you let them help! One less stress for you. I remember my dad showing me exactly how to wrap presents. Everyone laughs when I tell them I need a knife, but it makes it so much easier. Hope you and your family have a Very Merry Christmas!

Water Balloons

When my kids told me they didn't know what to do with themselves yesterday I suggested they go outside and play with the water balloons....
