A day for presents

Today was our youngest cherub's 8th birthday. He was pretty excited and this was shown by him arriving in our bedroom at 1.30am and announcing "it's my birthday but I know it's still night and you will tell me to go back to sleep". He ended up in our bed as he was having problems going back to sleep. I moved into his bed a bit later and then he arrived at 3.30am saying that it was getting closer to the time that he could open his presents. Guess who was excited - not me! He went back to his bed and I went back to mine and finally at 5.30am we all got up so that he could open his presents! It has been a long day for some of us.......
Happy Birthday N. Marion has been baking - don't you love the candy canes. Reminiscent of Martha Stewart's biscuit decorating.
A couple of parcels left the house today, looking like this. I love the striped teatowels, they make wonderful wrapping. Even better if your initials are "SB" (embroidered on the teatowel)
And this parcel is my Christmas Care Swap winging its way to Erica in Queensland. And if you love the metal birds as much as I do, you can contact Lisa at Inn Country, she has lots of gorgeous things in her shop.

Yawn - time for bed - at last!

Hope your little one had a lovely birthday and you managed to last out your long day.. Love the wrapping on both those parcels and I have one of those identical birds. Love them.

We often have relocations throughout the night,musical beds is great...apparently!
Your goodies you are posting look great!
BUT THE WOW FACTOR is those candy canes...
Happy Birthday to Sir 8 year old!!

Oh Gosh Christina,

I can remember those days well!! Okay so did I ever tell you that my initials could be SB also if it meant I could have a gift wrapped in an embroidered tea towel ;c) (wink wink) Oh and the bird is mighty cute also I better head over to see them. Now that Jackie's mailing address is at her house in Texes I can have things sent there and wait till she and/or Eliot have to go north :c)

Did you get any sleep??

Pattie :c)

Happy 8th birthday to your not so 'little' guy Christina:)

I also wanted to thank you so very much for the PIF gift! I didn't find the card right away, so it was a bit of a mystery. I just love them both, and have them on my skinny trees in my kitchen so that I can look at them all of the time.

Now, I must get to thinking about what I am going to send for my PIF people?

Happy, happy holidays to you, and you can plan on a visit with us when you come in 2010!

Wooly hugs,
