You can't be good at everything...

You can't be good at everything.
One of my weaknesses: The ability to wrap presents.
Seriously, you'd think I'd be good at it. But I'm not. At all.
I spent this afternoon wrapping presents, and after lots of struggling and frustration finally finished.
They look decent from a distance, but up close, it's kind of a mess.

Normally I like to get a variety of wrapping paper, but my hubby didn't feel it was necessary. I suppose he was right, we didn't even use the entire roll. Still, I like having options.

I decided to take down all of the ornaments from the tree before we leave for the holidays. The branches on our tree are drooping, and it's only a matter of time before our ornaments start falling off. I didn't want to risk it.

Apparently, it really is necessary to make a fresh cut after you choose your Christmas tree (Jacob and I both knew this, why we didn't speak up is beyond me). The guy we purchased ours from claimed that he could "drill a hole in the middle" and it would do the same thing. Nope. It doesn't. Our tree barely drank any water, but I'm pretty happy that it's still hanging on for dear life.
One of my favorite ornaments from this year was one that my parent's gave us while we were at their house this past thanksgiving:

It's a Lenox "Our first Christmas" ornament. I love it.
Technically it's our 3rd Christmas that we will be spending together, but the first one that we will be married for :)
My hubby was OH SO HELPFUL as I was removing all of the ornaments from the tree.

I hope everyone has a very merry Christmas!

  1. Your presents look perfectly lovely to me. And personally, I like to see the scotch tape (it shows me that labor was involved.)

    Enjoy your first married Christmas! I'll be enjoying my third this year :)
