No packages arrived today! There are still several more days to hope for things to arrive on time! I am waiting on 2 packages since the other was sent back without my knowledge.
Today was super busy, filled with cookies, Christmas music, going out to lunch and ending the night by wrapping our Christmas presents and putting them under the tree! Usually we have that done on the 20th but could not this year.
It looks so beautiful, all those presents stacked around & under our Christmas tree! I am so excited and can not wait for Christmas morning! It’s like being a child! I love Christmas & I love surprises.
Is there anything in particular you are hoping is under the Christmas tree? I have a few desires but by the looks of the gifts all around us, I MUST have been a very good girl this year and I am thinking a few things I am hoping for will end up being under the tree!
