This is what happens when you allow your children to use your wrapping paper unsupervised!!! I want you to know that the "bad" part was easily removed and the rest of the roll salvaged to use another day! Whew!
In years past, I don't usually get my wrapping done until late Christmas Eve. This year, I'm done already! I just finished moments ago, man it feels good! Now, I must add, for those of you that are cursing me under your breath, count the presents, we only did one per kid this Christmas. That may have had more to do with being done early than I'd like to think! Did I mention that I mailed my Christmas cards today too? I'm on a roll! (No pun intended!)
Now, I feel as though I can sit back, sip some hot chocolate, watch the snow fall, make some Christmas cookies and candy, watch some Christmas movies, and just enjoy the rest of December! I should do this every year!!!

The kids all stood in line to "deliver" their shoe boxes.
Next, they played relay games. Seeing which line could fill a shoebox with all the necessary items. Plus, take out the ones that weren't allowed. It was a blast!

I thought Leah and I would be the only two to hold out, but then,
What was I to do?
We unfortunately managed to miss Leah's snow angel :-(
Jess and Lucy even decided to do a contest to see who could lay there the longest.
I was cold sitting on the edge of the hot tub just watching! Lucy finally gave up and Jess won.
I wish we had timed them, it seemed like at least a few minutes!

The devastation looks like what we saw in Biloxi, just not as wide spread.
John will leave Jan. 11th to take a group from church down there to do relief work.
Southwest Airlines is running a great deal so it's only $160 round trip!

What will the world be like now, with no more little pink and white frosted cookies...
(Did I mention that Keebler just started making little pink and white frosted animal cookies?) Someone should get a raise there! Brilliant!
