Wrapping and Baking....

I've been really busy this week trying to get ready to head out to my sisters house in Fishers, Indiana bright and early tomorrow morning to celebrate Christmas with my side of the family this weekend. That means I had to have all of the gifts bought and wrapped, and I'm finally done. I got up early today, cleaned house from top to bottom, got all the laundry done, and baked some pumpkin bread....phew I'm pooped! So, now I'm just trying to relax a little.

This year I decided to do red and white with gold ribbon on my gifts, and they turned out so pretty. We started a tradition years ago where us three sisters, and my sister-in-law exchange ornaments. So each year I buy 3 of the same ornaments and they do the same. It's been such a wonderful tradition. I look forward to finding that special ornament each year. I bought a lot of gift bags this year too. I hope everyone is enjoying the start of the weekend. Stay warm...and happy wrapping to all!

These are my 3 special ornaments this year...
