That's what I'm calling it.......In the wee hours of the morning, which is really the end of yesterday.

I had chauffeuring duty in the early morning and late afternoon...which included taking JJ along, riding shotgun..

Then a doctor's appointment and two basketball games sandwiched in between.

I came home to this mess of gifts and boxes mixed with receipts, bags and junk.

After a few hours I finally got my wrapping about halfway done, and under the tree.

Once I'm done, they will be packed up to ship to Florida, California and Colorado.

I can't wait to go visit all my friends at my local Post Office.....Remember them?

I have a pile like that, it needs sorted and wrapped too. Every time I look at it I just close the door and go away.
I am suppose to take the girls to the mall today so I can just add to it.(even tho I am done)
Looks as if JJ is living in luxury. Did we win our BB games?

You're so organized. The presents look so perfect, too. I'm not a very patient wrapper so mine always end up looking oddly shaped, or with two different kinds of wrapping paper on the same present because I would not pre-measure the paper, etc.

You forgot to add Virginia to that list of shipping destinations.

Wow - I'm impressed! I haven't even started shopping yet - I haven't even made my LIST yet!

You are such a busy bee.....pretty soon you will have nothing to do. :)
Love Daughters is such a TX house.
Whenever coach and I watch tv, hgtv in particular we can always spot the TX and AZ houses...oh and the FL ones too.

...getting basketball in was your first priority I am sure! Too bad granddaughter doesn't live closer...BIG Foot and her would get along well!

I haven't wrapped one present yet if that makes you feel better :) And the tree is half done...and it doesn't look like it will be done today either...I am off to mount kindergarten art work for the kindergarten conference :)

All of our shit was sent via UPS to sista #1's humble abode. Her home looks like unwrapped presents exploded all over while mine is nice and present free.

Did you know she loves to track things? Seriously, give her some UPS tracking numbers and you won't hear from her for days.

My house has a Pile #1, but not a Pile #2. Yes, I finally purchased a few Christmas gifts, but I'm not going to wrap them until we actually put up the tree. I cut my list so short this year that it won't take me long to knock out the rest......via internet:)

JJ sure has a nice home. He doesn't do anything illegal to pay the mortgage, does he???? After all, a dog's career is limited! Heehee!

We have had our tree up for a while, so that Coop could get used to the lights before we decorated it and hopefully leave it alone. He helped put the ornaments on today (post tomorrow) and did well, but the presents are staying upstairs until Christmas morning.

I'm all done with the shopping and now it's hubby's turn to get them wrapped. I did get my Christmas cards out today and all of my holiday baking done too. So I feel good about that.

Have you heard the new suggestions for packing materials...air popped popcorn, real peanuts in shells, peppermints, and there's a fourth one I can't remember. More green that way.

Keeper Of All Things said...

I don't even have half my shopping done....
and I never wrap.
Budman can't stand how sloppy I do it so he does well for me!!

I have to go read about your friends at the post office. I am sad to say I don't recollect that story!
