Deep Breaths, Happy Thoughts.
I know it’s four weeks until Christmas, but you can only do so much. Pace yourself and don’t overreach.
Promise yourself that you’ll wrap one package every day so that you aren’t overwhelmed with gift-wrapping duties on Christmas Eve.
I found this Gift Wrap Work Station at The Container Store for $49. I keep it in my room in the corner with all the hidden gifts stored in the baby’s pack and play (kids never look there).
Every night my goal is to wrap up a gift at night then take it down in the morning to place under the tree. A nice surprise for the children when they come down every morning.
We wrapped our first Christmas gift for a program my oldest daughter Grace is doing for her American Heritage Girls Troop.
Operation Christmas Child is a project we do through Samaritans Purse International Relief. Last week, Grace and I wrapped and packed up a shoe box full of small gifts for a 10-14 year old girl for the holidays. It was a wonderful way to give back via a child in another country.
