    DH actually took our LO to play outside in the snow and out to lunch, so i got just about everything (including santa presents) wrapped! i just have a couple things left that we picked up a bit ago. I'm thrilled! I'm so used to staying up so late on christmas eve, and being exhausted all day on christmas, but this year i'm going to try to be rested! I've also got a pretty bad cold that hit me yesterday, so i'm glad i've got all thsi done! Going to try and start baking cookies tomorrow!:happydance:

    So when you you start wrapping? Do you have any traditions during Christmas week?

    I wrapped my presents (out of excitement/boredom) a few weeks ago I think :rofl:

    I even had her stocking stuffed a week or so ago.

    Actually I started my baking 2 weeks ago too, whatever I could freeze :lol:

    I just felt this sudden rush of anxiety a couple of weeks ago and didn't know how I was going to do everything.

    No traditions yet for Christmas week as I'm still living w/ my parents and for them every year is different, and this is my first year with my LO!

    I wrap my gifts during the last week of my kids' school before the Holidays.

    Traditions...we don't really have one as it is different each year and depends on whether or not my stepkids are over. The only one tradition that I grew up with and have passed on is that they can open one present on Christmas Eve.

    Me and O/H got most of the wrapping out of the way last week, just a few bits left to do. Usually I leave all the wrapping until Xmas but if I had left it until then this year I wold still be wrapping Xmas morning.

    The only tradition I have this year is that Olivia gets to unwrap one present, which will be new pj's from the pj fairy to wear for Santa!
