  1. We missed you guys last night! I hope the end of the semester is going well.

    I am with you on the wrapped gifts with bows. Ripping through paper is so much more fun on Christmas morning!

  2. I agree. It's much funner to unwrap a present than take it out of a bag! :)

  3. Hope we can make arrangements to come see your tree and all your decorations. I admit that I didn't put everything out this year. Just ran out of time. But I do like our new 9' tree.
