    yep wrap everything in the stockings, tried to tell the kids I wouldn't anymore but dd says it has to be wrapped :rolleyes:

    wrapping still isn't done... but I did buy a few more gift bags... so that'll speed up some things.

    I need to recheck stockings. Am now doubting myself as to what is in each one as I found some things in a box in the gift closet.....Mmm

    Cleaned up wrapping area - it's filled with boxes that have arrived though and I need to find some time soon to wrap more!

    Planning on this Sunday afternoon...

    ROFLOL! Oh my gosh, I remember those days of last minute running around for costumes in December with every other parent doing the same thing. I can now look back on it fondly and with laughter. At the time, I could not.

    I spend some time last Wednesday wrapping and then again on Saturday and Sunday. All the gifts that we had bought and were in the house were finished by Sunday night. A few more gifts from Cyber Monday shopping are slowly making their way into the house. I hope to get to them this weekend if not earlier.

    DH still has to wrap my gifts :rolleyes:, and I use the term wrap loosely.
    I made some calico bags earlier in the year so he can just toss things in and he is done.

    Yes, sometimes we do need to help DH along, or we are wrapping our own gifts.

    DD usually comes over the night of my work Christmas party and helps DH. At least then I get a few nicely wrapped gifts.

    Two wrapping days to go.
    Sunday 15th (10 days to go) and Wednesday 18th (1 week to go).
    If you are finished wrapping well done to you, if you are not there is still plenty of time to get things done.

    I am about 75 % done wrapping .. DH on the other hand hasn't even started yet LOL. As much as he hates wrapping his wrapping skills have gotten better over the years.

    ROFLOL! I can relate. I prefer a wrapped gift than one still in the plastic bag it was placed in at the store.

    I have wrapped box top lids that I did about 20 yrs. ago for dh to use. It's considered "vintage" wrapping. LOL!

    My dh ordered some gifts and typed in the wrong house number. A bunch of packages are being sent to our new neighbor. Nothing like telling our neighbor to expect several more packages addressed to us. :oops:

    I will be busy wrapping this week for sure. We are still waiting on gifts ordered two weeks ago. :eek: I've been tracking them. They are sitting in a warehouse, lost in the shuffle. Hopefully, they will be arrive soon. I'm guessing that snowy weather has had a part in the delay.

    Mary, hope that the packages arrive very soon. Frustrating waiting on items.

    AJ you are one of the most organised people I know. I have no doubt that you will get it done and that it will look beautiful.

    DH did all our wrapping today! He is a much better wrapper than I am. The only thing left to wrap is the PJ's from Mrs. Claus and I need to get some hot chocolate to put in with them.
