It's time for me to admit I have a problem. A terrible, terrible problem. Now that have peaked your interest, I must confess that I am a horrible gift wrapper. That's right ~ if there is a contest for producing the ugliest wrapped gift I would enter and win hands down. I don't like wrapping gifts, but I prefer gifts to have wrapping paper on them. I know, this does not make one bit of sense. Here is some proof that I am truly one of the world's worst wrappers:
The top one is a Christmas present for my niece Aubree that I wrapped the other day. I cut the paper to big so the sides were to long to tape properly and this is the end result. And yes that is a cow hanging from it ~ you push it's tummy and it plays Christmas carols.
The middle one is a present I wrapped for John. To my advantage, it is a weird shaped gift so it was kind of difficult to wrap.
The last pic is a present for Tommie I wrapped that actually didn't look too bad until Abbie decided to open part of it yesterday. So now do you believe what a horrible wrapper I am? :o)
And don't even get me started about our Christmas tree. I was worried about the kids messing with it too much ~ but our cats are way more of a problem! And here is proof of this:
He managed to knock it over for the first time today but thankfully I didn't put any ornaments on it that were breakable. There is garland hanging everywhere and the tree skirt is constantly messed up. I'd show a picture of the whole tree but I'm afraid it would be too embarrassing. It did look nice for about a day. I guess when I am entering the worst gift wrapper contest, I'll put my name down for the ugly tree contest too.
Our week has been pretty busy ~ not much time for my favorite hobby of blogging. Don't worry though ~ I've been trying to keep up with all of you, I just don't have time to leave many comments lately. The kids are out of school now for Christmas break and if yesterday was any indication of how the next 2 1/2 weeks are gonna go, I am in big, big trouble! ;o)
Oh yeah, and we had about 6 inches of snow a couple days ago. And the high tomorrow is going to be zero with a -20 degrees wind chill factor. Whoooooo Hooooooo!
Here are a few pics of the kids playing in the snow yesterday. Happy Saturday!
