Yesterday's task on the advent calendar was to wrap presents. We have a big family on Corey's side so wrapping is a big task. We only buy for the kids, Corey's parents and his little sister and her fiance (as they don't have kids) but that still gives us 16 people just on Corey's side. We have done quite well this year with only 4 presents left to buy. Usually we shop for Corey's family all in one big hit the week before Christmas because Corey hates Christmas shopping. This year though I started while I was on maternity leave so we have made good progress.
This year I decided to put a bit more effort into my wrapping. I went with brown paper wrapping with doilies and red and white ribbons to match in with the colours on our tree. I actually had a lot of fun wrapping these presents. The little one at the front with the pom pom on it is my favourite. Who doesn't love pom poms!
Unfortunately, I didn't buy enough ribbon so not all the presents are wrapped just yet so this advent task will have to be "to be continued"....
