Merry MERRY Christmas

Will he get the other wish?
Come back and check on Friday and see : )!
Yes, you are seeing correctly. I wrapped in plastic bags.
I have OODLES of wrapping paper.
But I ran out of tape after the 5th present.
And then I ran out of STICKERS after the 9th present.
Please let me know when you will be filling out my nomination for Mother of the Year...

Kung Fu Panda!
Perfect for my little Karate Chopper!
Hii iiiiiii Ya aaaaaaaa!

Only the BEST mothers buy their children a megaphone.
WHAT was I thinking?

May His PRESENCE warm you
May His PROMISE cheer you
May His LOVE guide you
As you bring the message of PEACE ON EARTH to those you love

God bless you.

You absolutly make me laugh woman!!!
Plastic bags? Have I taught you nothing????
Glad the kids (both of them) got what they wanted.
The megaphone is funny. Did you also get him a set of drums????

Merry Christmas.

ps. the colage is from PicNik. I even upgraded, cause I like the site so much.
Blessings to you, Suz

Plastic bags is the new newspaper. FYI bandaids work like tape.
Merry Christmas

Pumpkin Delight said...

Ha! Ha! Ha! I laughed out loud with the plastic bags...too funny! Hey, you made it work and they didn't seem to care one bit!

Oh, just saw GJ's advice. Bandaids, who'd have thunk it.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas and I am totally impressed that you've already posted pictures. Ok first of all, I got Josh Kung Fu Panda!! Big boys and little boys a like must love that movie! Also, I brought down all Josh's presents IN gift bags last night and he made me take them all back and put them in boxes and wrap all of about picky! I wish I had the excuse of running out of tape or something!Be thankful Gary is hapy to get the presents :-)

Hey you were being resourceful by using the plastic bags. A mom's gotta do what a mom's gotta do. It sounds like both of your guys liked their gifts no matter what they came wrapped in.
Great pictures and once again love that smile!

Karen Deborah said...

good solution in a pinch. didn't seem to spoil the party a bit.

I think you did wonderfully to improvise with the plastic bags. Looks like everyone had a very happy Christmas.

I already filled out the nominaiton form and sent it to the Mother of the Year people. In comparison to what happens in my household, you're a shoe-in winner.

You are to funny! I enjoyed your psot. The megaphone is the best. I don't have children but they are the type of toys I love to buy for my neice and nephews. Glad the kids got what the wanted. To funny I thought about wrapping in plastic bags too but DH went to the store and got gift bags instead. LOL! Thanks for sharing. Happy Holidays to you and your family!

Ah! Plastic bags as wrapping paper. You might be on to something there! Way to "go green"!

Great of you to stop by and visit. I was just thinking about you earlier this week and meant to check your site. Looks like you had a wonderful Christmas. So, are you the proud parents of a puppy?

I'm praying for your friend Quince. What a scary time for him and his family. Only 40! That's crazy, and frightening.

Have a beautiful rest of the holiday season. Happy New Year!
Cheers, Cindy

You totally crack me up girl! I would have loved the megaphone for myself. lol! Cute pic of Kaishon by the tree!

Have a great weekend!

The Incredible Woody said...

I wonder how long it will take before the megaphone disappears!!

Karen Deborah said...

ok post it, is there a weenie dog in your family now?

Rebekah said...

A megaphone?? Oh, I do not envy you! Steven is plenty loud on his own, which he loves to demonstrate when we are in public bathrooms since he echos. Lovely :)

jfrogster said...

Way to go, Mom of the Year! :)

Mom on the Run said...

I love the plastic bags...I'm all about making do. It could have been worse...toilet paper or paper towels!

DS are a great gift. My daughter loves hers.

Grandma J said...

Ok, so where's the puppy!! I know Kaishon got his puppy...but if he didn't it looks like Santa had plenty of goodies to suffice. A megaphone??

The bags! Too funny =)A megaphone?? And I thought I was the only mom on the planet who would do such a thing!

HappyWifeHappyLife said...

LOVE the pictures - LOVE his smiles! Kung Fu Panda was an adorable movie (how can you NOT love Jack Black?!)

And yes, the plastic bags made me laugh... your husband looks befuddled...!)

I'm DYING to know if the "other gift" is going to be given.... dare I say it.... a PUPPY, perhaps?????

I'll be waiting with baited breath....
