holiday haps

I thought I'd try something different this year and get all of our Christmas shopping done before Thanksgiving. I've already felt different- first of all since I didn't have to wake up early or even step inside a store during Black Friday and the weekend. (Oh- I definitely felt an insane urge to go, but turns out I didn't need anything.) I think I can get used to this. Now maybe I'll wrap all the presents one of these nights so we don't have to stay up to an insane hour doing that on Christmas Eve.
Adam's Mom always put code names on the kids presents when he was growing up, so we thought we'd try that this year too. They get to see the presents and shake and feel them, but hopefully not look inside them? Adam came up with the Greek God theme, can you figure out who is who?

And Sunday while we were eating breakfast (Adam was at a meeting), we heard a huge crash in the family room. Our tree had fallen over and a couple ornaments broke. And the presents got soaking wet. (I'm finally laughing about it now...)

Loving the holidays- it's such a fun time of year!

Isn't it a great feeling to have all the shopping done?!?! I love your idea about putting code names on everything! I have all the gifts out for the kids to see, but just haven't put tags on's amazing how they don't want to even look at presents if their name isn't on it!! HA! :)
