Presents Wrapped and Number 6

Today I spent the day taking inventory of everything we have bought and made for Christmas presents.  I wrote every ones name down and the present we had for them.  This allowed me to see who I needed to get more for and who I was finished with.

When I was done with that I took 2 different wrapping papers out and went to town a wrappin!

I had the Christmas music playin and I was a singin : )

This year I didn't put tags on the presents.  Instead I wrote the girls names on the back, tehe.  It is driving them crazy!  They want to know who's present is who's.  They have been sniffin all over those presents and still haven't seen their names on them, hahahaha.  I did this because they both asked for things that are soooo vverrrry easy to guess even when wrapped.  I thought about wrapping them in bigger boxes but didn't have any on hand so that was my remedy.  I love how they are feeling and sniffing, lol.  They are so stinking cute and full of anticipation!

And now for number 6!

Isn't it darling?

There is a darling star inside!  The sad news is... I lost the name and blog address : ( !!!!  If you know who's it is please let me know so I can give them the credit they deserve.  They did such a lovely job and even used a big matchbox which I LOVE!  I guess the tag got lost in my wrapping mess and I threw it away.. booohooo booohooo.

I found it!!!  I had it tucked in a magazine so I "wouldn't" lose it, lol.  Number six comes from Jenny at The Red Bulletin board.  Thank you so very much!  Jenny has a sassy and vintage blog that is a joy to read.

Merry Christmas to you and yours!

All of the matchboxes are so cute! You're so funny...about writing the children's names on the back of the presents...LOL! I think it's so nice that you take time to make presents to give to family and friends. That means so much more than a store bought gift!
