First off, I have to say thank you to my secret pal. I don't know if she reads my blog or not, but how cute is this hat and mittens set she sent me? And that Panda bear was on my Christmas list. So cool! I am so stressed out. I think the hustle and bustle of Christmas is getting to me. Something else happened today that totally freaked me out and caused me to leave work early in tears. I had to take half of a Xanax when I got home, and I never do that. I can't talk about it, but it involves a creditor, and a law suit, and being served papers at work. For something that isn't even our fault and I had no idea about. Merry Christmas. I know my husband will sort it all out eventually, but for now I am scared and anxious. I did manage to finish wrapping all of my presents today. Now they are all ready to be dropped off or packed up for our trip. Here's a picture of all the loot. No wonder we are financially tapped out! I have a tendency to go a little overboard at Christmas. I just can't help myself. I love giving gifts! See that fancy silver ribbon on most of the presents? That's to hide the fact that I am a terrible wrapper. I really am. So all of the packages got fancy silver ribbons to hide the flaws. Everyone but the kids, that is, because kids need to be able to rip into their presents without the hassle of ribbon.

Hope whatever it is you are able to sort it out quickly and without any financial impact!

BTW- I'm a terrible wrapper as well... it's truly shocking!

The gifts are adorable! The holiday can be stressful, but take a step back and focus on the little things that make you happy. I have to remind myself of this all the time! BTW - your gifts look great!
