wrapping pressies

Surely, you know of my mad wrapping skills!?!
I began the wrapping of the pressies this weekend.
I took everything out of the hidey closet and all the way downstairs Friday when I got home from school.

It’s weird how that damn sofa always photographs taupey when it’s the most gorgeous soft gray color…but I digress.
I hauled everything down two flights of stairs and got to work. Friday afternoon, I wrapped the gifts the boys chose for YBW first so they’d already be finished when he got home.

After I finished YBW’s gifts, I wrapped everything for the boys. That way, when the come back home from their mother’s house on Friday, they’ll be able to go downstairs even if I’m not finished wrapping.

I was dying to break out the new paper Thing 2 and I bought at Target so I decided to wrap a pressie I bought myself.

So much freaking glitter in this paper! My hands, leggings, and the floor were covered. I had it all over my face and in my hair. Good golly did it make my nose itch!

Today I wrapped for Thing 1 and her husband N. Tomorrow I’ll wrap Thing 2’s gifts. I want to get them to the post office the end of this week just in case of any shipping delays.

Here’s what I’ve wrapped so far…so much more to go.

I love to wrap gifts as much as I love to do laundry. It was pointed out to me that they’re similar tasks. I agreed and remarked that the stimulate my OCD in the same way.
Nothing quite as satisfying as perfectly folded laundry still warm from the dryer.
Nothing quite as pretty as a perfectly wrapped pressie.

I’m the happy elf!

I took all the gifts from the hidey closet yesterday. I sat in the floor surrounded by boxes of wrapping paper and bags of bows on one side and the bags of pressies on the other. Netflix gave me White Christmas and I began to wrap.

All the special Christmas Eve gifts (always new jammies and a book) went under the little tree in the family room

The rest went under the big tree in the front room.

YBW carried them all up and dropped them off, I haven’t organized them yet.

I’ve wrapped every single gift we’ve already purchased. More gifts will come in the next couple weeks. Oh how I love to wrap gifts!
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

I found out yesterday that both Thing 1 and Thing 2 will be here for Christmas this year! This makes me so happy I can hardly stand it!
Need to get new stockings and hangers…meeting Sundance Friday for a little shopping.

I’m totally the Happy Elf!!
