Christmas presents

I have a confession to make, I can't stand to have Christmas presents and not have them wrapped so normally we have a big pile of presents to put under the tree before the tree is even up! This year is no exception. We have no tree up yet (but do have a wreath on the door and our singing snowman and penguin from Hallmark on the the coffee table) but a huge pile of presents. I just had to wrap them. I love wrapping gifts plus I love watching the kids "fight over who has the biggest present under the tree right now (which Madison is winning this contest so far) and then trying to figure out what is in each one. Matt's mom said "we had presents in search of a Christmas tree." Hopefully we will have a tree soon. We are not getting our HUGE (not an exaggeration at all, the thing is 7.5 ft tall and so big around that all 5 of us try to stand around it holding hands and we need 2 more people to accomplish this) one out this year but instead getting a real one! I love real trees, there is nothing like the smell of pine. It makes me think of snow, which hopefully we will get this year!

Last night while I was wrapping presents the kids watched "Shrek the Halls" and "How the Grinch Stole Christmas". I watched the Shrek the Halls which was hilarious. I hope it comes on again or we can find it on youtube. Anyway here is a picture of Caleb watching. He was glued to the tv. He loves How the Grinch Stole Christmas. We have it on video and he watches it year round. It is a favorite at my house. I couldn't resist snapping a pic of him wrapped up in his blanket watching the movie.
