The Presents are Wrapped

12.24.2010



Yes, all the presents are wrapped and waiting for tiny fingers (and some big ones) to open!
Can't wait to see their faces light up.



 
 Every one of these gifts are for the grand kids! Do you think we over did it? That is what Mr. Savvy said when I told him.



 Isn't that what grandparents are supposed to do?!























I purchased this gray wicker basket a while back and thought it would be great to add some greenery to it. I went to Home Depot to get some free clippings and the guy that worked there helped me get the freshest ones and even cut some new ones off a tree that he said no one was going to buy anyway. That was such a nice thing he did and now I have the smell of Christmas.


Frosty is ready on the stair landing to welcome the grand kids when they arrive. 


I just want to wish all my blogging friends that I have made this year and my faithful readers,

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!

May it be your best ever. Just remember time spent with loved ones is far more important than the gifts.

I probably will not be blogging the next couple of days and probably most of  you won't be either.

See you in a few,

KIM

  16. Oh I vote on the side of grandparents. My husband says there are no spoiled children, just undisciplined. So we let the parents do the discipline and we just spoil away! I hope you can enjoy every minute you have to spend with them. (Your packages are beautiful.)
