We're totally done. Well, actually hubby has to put together the kitchen set we bought-I'll ut a sheet over it! Santa will come tonight and then head to the ILs around 10 and be back??? Christmas morning we are leaving at 8 and won't be back until late again. That's why Santa will come early!

I believe all the presents to be at least here, except that my other cousin (the sister of the one coming over) just called and said they're coming xmas morning so we may have to think something up quickly for her, her girlfriend, and her kid. Why must people get so f'n jealous and dramatic of each other? Irritating.

Nothing, however is wrapped. Ben wrapped all his stuff before he left, but we won't open it until he gets home. lol. I still have everything in the shopping bags they came home in. Perhaps I will work on that this evening. It'll keep me occupied.

We have a lot left to wrap. It's hard to play Santa when the kids don't sleep at the same time.

Ummm I'll be at the mall at 7 tomorrow morning finishing up. I'm such a procrastinator. So of course nothing is wrapped either-oops.

I don't know why I do it, it's kind of like a little thrill or something. I'm going before it gets way out of hand though.

Update ... I have all the presents wrapped for my mom, adam, and the GF. I still have my dad, my step mom, the cousins, and DH to do.

I. Am. A. Wrapping. Machine.

(hence why I haven't been here really until now ....)

I still needed to get Santa gifts for the big girls... but I think I will skip it in light of today's events.

Looks like what they got is what they get...

I still have a few things to wrap (I'll just have to make one of those a Santa gift). We picked up High School Musical 2 the other night at Target, and that will be their together gift. I have no idea how much it cost. Scott actually paid for it while the girls and I were looking around for their exchange gifts.

8 million hours later ... everything is done except DH ... and the three things upstairs in my closet ... but I'm too tired and/or lazy to go up and get them. Ah well. Tomorrow, I suppose.

I just got back from the mall. It was great-no one was there. I do need to start wrapping, but I'm putting that off for a little longer

I just have to get change to give the teenagers cash, and I have to get a gift card for my little sis's boyfriend. And I still have to wrap a few things.

We are on the wrap as you go plan this year. We went to my dad's last night and I wrapped their stuff right before we left. We are going to B's mom's tonight so that has to be finished.

I was going to go in to work today, but I changed my mind last minute and decided to stay home, so maybe I will wrap today since ty stayed at my dad's with my little brother. I just dont feel like wrapping.

I think Kris said Santa came early for them because they have to travel early tomorrow. =-)
