this year, all of our wrapping will be done
(hopefully soon)
using inside-out tj’s bags and 
red and white baker’s twine from here
(great deal, right? my sis found it).





so far, the only things that have been wrapped
are those that needed to go in the mail.
my (preggo) sis and her hubby will not be joining us this Christmas.
boo hoo.


other than that, not a thing has been wrapped.
maybe that’s what i’ll be doing today.
i sure hope so.
i just don’t need any house guests as my “helpers.”
we all know how that goes. 
not well.






When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, 
and all Jerusalem with him.
When he had called together all the people’s chief priests 
and teachers of the law, 
he asked them where the Messiah was to be born. 
“In Bethlehem in Judea,” they replied, 
“for this is what the prophet has written:
 “‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,
   are by no means least among the rulers of Judah;
for out of you will come a ruler
   who will shepherd my people Israel.’”

Matthew 2:3-6
