Does Santa wrap your gifts?

December 23rd, 2008 at 05:36 pm

I was talking with a friend this morning and I mentioned that Santa wrapped our presents. She said she has never had Santa's gifts wrapped.

I was thinking of asking Santa not to wrap this year to save money and resourses, and time.

I really don't know though, because of tradition.

This morning will be spent baking. I am making gift baskets for the kids to take to church for the leaders. I did this last year and they all seemed to enjoy them.

This year I will be making
Mocha Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins,
Blueberry muffins,
Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies, and
Spiced Pecans

I will also be making these for the kids teachers as well. About 20 baskets in all.

This afternoon I have several errands I need to run. I have been putting these off as I always fing something betterr to do. Smile

Pertaing to my last entry, my DH sheetrocked the dining room wall and it looks pretty good. Money saved doing it ourself - about $700.00. WOW!

That wouldn't be smart!

I went to a few garage sales this morning with a friend and didn't buy a thing. BUT...there was a beautiful Honda Shadow at one that I was eyeing. It was a 2007 model and the gentleman said he had bought it for his wife who ended up not liking it. Only 157 miles on it. Boy, my DH would love that thing! Then I had a fleeting thought of buying it to resale...No Littlemama - walk away!

We are still doing repairs from Ike. It is hell to get someone out here to even get a quote. They all have too much to do that they don't care. We finally got someone out here and the quote was outrageous. $800.00 for ONE wall of sheetrock. (Ima, can I borrow your DH?)
Well, my DH and I decided we can (maybe) do it ourselves. We bought the materials and tools for a little less than $100.00. we could screw the whole thing up several times and stll make out better than the quote. We'll see how it goes. Maybe I'll post pics. when it's done.
