Christmas Gift Wrapping

So this is what I do for Christmas gift wrapping: I pick a theme, and wrap everything accordingly. This year is red and gold, with little green tree-tags. Last year I did green and gold with coffee-dyed tags stamped with gold snowflakes. I did wrap two gifts differently this year. These ones are for our chinese gift exchange. I dressed up the plain silver dollar-store bag with ribbon. I just punched holes approximately equally spaced, and tied 8-inch lengths of silver curling ribbon in each. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out! And this is how JK woke from her nap just now: Poor baby is stressed out from all the shopping and house stuff that has been going on. We had the inspection of our new place this morning, and hope to get all the conditions removed by the time we go on holidays on Friday. Here is what our new house looks like, for those of you who don't remember way back to September when we first looked at it. Spending three hours in the house this morning just made me even more excited to live there. Unlike most of the other duplexes in the area, it has a corner lot and extra windows on the side. Oh, I can't wait!
