Every year, my friends get together before Christmas to wrap each other's gifts. Most of them are quite talented with wrapping and bows. I am not among them. It's sad to see all these beautifully wrapped gifts next to the ones I wrapped. I'll have to take lessons for next year!

During this busy time of year, we always take a few hours to gather at one of our homes and we literally trash the place! Rolls of paper, boxes and ribbons are scattered about the floor as we get to work. It's a fun afternoon with great friends and I always look forward to it each year!
