Tomorrow night I am hostessing my 2nd annual gift-wrapping open house. I pull out all of my wrapping paper, tape, scissors, curly ribbon, tissue paper, etc. and invite neighbors over to get some of their Christmas gift-wrapping done. I make lots of cookies and something in the crockpot, turn on the Christmas music and the Happy Hearth DVD (it makes my TV look like a fireplace.) Jeremiah is going to take the kids out and spend some time with them so I don't have to worry about their little, spying peepers.
I still can't decide if it's a good idea or not. It's not much trouble for me because I don't have to haul gifts in and out of the house in order to get them wrapped. Last year most of my guests just brought a few gifts to wrap, and I wasn't sure if they came just to be nice since I was new in the neighborhood. Either way, I'm looking forward to it and I hope the people who do make it over enjoy themselves!
