    I think I have finished wrapping!
    I did my mums yesterday and they will go under the tree when I put it up on Saturday. The others are in big bags and hidden in the spare room.
    I bought a lovely jigsaw today and wrapped it as soon as I got home.
    DH will need to wrap mine at some stage and the kids will need to wrap gifts to each other so the wrapping supplies will be out for a while yet.

    Still a few more wrapping dates so don't panic if you have not done it yet!!

    Major wrapping today. LC21 and DD tied a fleece blanket for me this morning . Then LC wrapped gift this afternoon. Now all so DGSs gifts are wrapped and tagged. She also wrapped Dds gifts. Not so many of them. I think she wrapped my gifts from Dh while I ran to the store.

    We host a Christmas Eve party so once we clean up and the children are in bed, then we put the gifts out.

    Lots of unexpected life interruptions happened this week and I didn't get any more wrapping done since last weekend. Like Katrina, it's kind of scaring me. I did spend some time this afternoon putting ribbon on the wrapped packages. Those packages are now safely hidden from plain sight.

    I have a few more packages to put on ribbons. I have a lot more wrapping to do. I've offered to shop and wrap for my in-laws this year which they are absolutely thrilled to take me up on. So, I placed some orders and hope to receive them by next weekend. I'm hoping to get to a few more gifts tonight!

    Our room (Allens side--LOL) is boxes and boxes delivered as is our bathtub filled with boxes.

    We put gifts out to others under the tree when wrapped. Then when family is here and gone Christmas Eve after that or early Christmas a.m. we put out the kids.

    Need to wrap.

    I have been plugging away at the wrapping. All of Lukes are now wrapped. I still have to get a DVD for him but cant get it til Dec 12. All of mine are wrapped. Teacher gifts are wrapped. I still have swim coach gifts to wrap. Plus Merlin and Kelso's and Tom (the goldfish- he is getting new rocks for his tank and a new filter). Plus a few other odds and ends- these can be done at night now when Luke is around as they are not for him or from Santa!

    Holiday_Mom, how nice of you to hep your in-laws by shopping and wrapping. I am sure that they appreciate it.

    Tanya, hope Tom likes his new rocks. Our pets get presents too.

    I am feeling much better about the wrapping tonight. All the packages that were missing bows are done. I wrapped a few more packages. I plan to wrap some more this weekend.

    Wrapping is done except for 1 item. I believe I it's should be in the mailbox this week. I also filled the 3 stockings. May get a couple of toiletries for DS's stocking it looks skimpy compared to the girls. DH will be spying in his room for me to let me know what he uses. He is currently house sitting and has all his toiletries with him.

    I have some major catching up to do. Been down with stomach flu since last Tuesday morning. Missed my goal of wrapping and shipping by this Monday. So first focus will be finishing gifts to ship. I have one thing to pick up from Kohls from online order - should do that tomorrow.

    I'm still pretty weak. Will probably wait until this weekend to wrap more.

    AJ, I hope you are feeling better these days.

    A number of items ordered online have been delayed due to the wildfires and snow. I haven't done any wrapping this weekend. I'm glad I ordered early in the month.

    Still not feeling myself - back to dr today to discuss test results. Fun, fun!

    I finished wrapping and boxing up gifts to ship, including cookie tins this weekend. Just got back from post office so that is DONE!

    Will bring in gifts for adopted family to work tomorrow - don't have to wrap those thank goodness!!!

    Still have a LOT of wrapping to do for gifts that will be given in person. Will be working on them as possible every night this week. But I have to finish Christmas cards tonight first!
