Christmas – One Week Away

How did that happen?

7 days until Christmas! Um, I might have a little left to do…

Thankfully, all but two gifts have been purchased and those should only require a quick stop. I have started wrapping, but I’m probably only half done. Perhaps a hot beverage, a Christmas movie playing in the background, and my pile of paper and trimmings can remedy that.

Do you put your gifts under the tree as you wrap? We always wait to put them out after the girls have gone to bed on Christmas Eve. We don’t “do” Santa at our house, but we still love the excitement on their faces Christmas morning to see all of the gifts freshly under the tree! Then of course there is the torture of having to wait to open anything until we get all the obligatory photographs next to the gift-laden tree. Each year, this proves to be more difficult on Grandma than it is on the children. Can we just open the presents already!?!? đŸ™‚

The next big thing on my list is to plan all the tasty food we’ll be enjoying! Spinach and artichoke dip, pecan bars and egg nog – OH MY!

Are you feeling prepared for Christmas a week out?
