I started wrapping gifts tonight! I don’t usually leave it so late, especially when the gifts have just been sitting there…but we’ve been busy. In hindsight, it’s probably best that we waited or H would have unwrapped them all by now. Anyway, as of this evening there is a wonderfully festive little pile under our tree, carefully wrapped in homemade wrapping paper. The kids helped me stamp plain brown paper (some actually recycled from Amazon packaging) with snowflake stamps and I have to say, I’m really loving it. So rustic! So festive! So adorable!

Here’s an action shot of E getting stampy:

Many of the gifts are handmade as well. Nearly all of the gifts for family members are handmade, except for the kids’ stuff, though several were not handmade by me. Neat!
