Gifts Are Wrapped, Just Counting the Days!

I decided to transfer our optic fiber Christmas tree from the dining room to  the living room to finish the look of  our  gift pile.  The small ornaments are great to hang in this little tree.

I am officially done with gift wrapping  for the holidays.  We have delivered some of the gifts for friends and family and  kids can't wait to open up their gifts.  My daughter wanted a bean bag so that's one of the gifts she's getting for Christmas.  That's also the big box you see below.  I think my son would want one when he sees it so I might get him  one for his birthday next month.  
 I find it funny that my kids keeps inventory of how many gifts they have under the tree.  They keep checking everyday lol.  I don't wrap gifts in one  day because  it gets them excited to add one gift every other day or so.
Their stockings are also stuffed so I am all set for Christmas unless of course the husband decides to get more, which he always does every year.  He feels like  what we are giving them is not enough.  I told  him how lucky our kids are because they get to open not just one gift but many during Christmas.  We never had that as a kid.  My fondest memory of Christmas was our caroling tradition in our neighborhood. Caroling is a big  part of every kids life over there during Christmas especially for those who doesn't really have  money to buy  anything.  That was a lot of fun for me, my Mom even came with us  on multiple occasions.
My parents taught us  early on that Christmas is about family.  As long as we have food in the table and we are all gather to celebrate the true essence of the holiday, we are  set.  When I came here, I saw a different way of celebrating Christmas.
But anyway, I wish you all a merry Christmas!

We do something similar will be at a little bit each day it makes me sad so excited about Christmas. He knows the true meaning of Christmas and so we always make sure that each year we say it again so that he understands why we celebrate it.

We have been wrapping for months. Every Time we picked up a gift we would wrap it and put it away, thankfully otherwise I would be in over my head right now!

I am grateful my parents instilled Christmas as the season for family and giving as well. You are on top of it with everything ready to go. I am still lingering with a few last gifts.

I always did the same thing. Adding a few gifts every few days keeps the excitement building.

I've finished my shopping but I still haven't gift wrapped everything as yet. Im really late to the game. I'm very much tempted to just leave the gifts unwrapped. :)
