LOL I do that too! I wait till the after-Christmas sales and buy all the pretty paper at 70% off and use it next year. I also have certain rolls of special paper that I've had for years and years. That paper is ear-marked for Noah's special Santa present(s). That's the one that Noah opens last. Yeah I have an order gifts have to be opened in. LOL From this one is just a fun gift to the "special" gift.

Here's a tip: you can microwave chocolate chip cookies for 15 or 20 seconds to make them all warm and gooey again. It even works with store-bought cookies!

I wish it were my last day of work before Christmas, but alas it's the last day I have OFF before Christmas. It's back to work tomorrow. I've been running around getting some things done today. My lunch is long overdue, and I'm going to take care of that next!

Oh definitely the kids taught me that one... works with jam donuts too. I've got pretty cluey gastronomers here that even invite friends when I bake. I love it! Home cooking is rare for them with so many yummy foods available for busy families. But the chatter and the appreciation when we bake is so special.
