Mine are not out yet. I had to wait for all of the kids to fall asleep. In the meanwhile, dh started watching a movie. I'm putting bows and ribbons on packages and stuffing stockings while I'm waiting for it to finish and then we'll get everything all set up! I need to make sure to charge my camera battery!!! I should have included that in my other PSA, lol. I'll just retitle this one. Make sure your camera batteries and cards/film are ready to go! I think I'll get the video camera ready, too. Merry Christmas!

and this:

i only cursed a little bit. mostly at item #2.

i managed to get all of DD's presents wrapped during my lunchbreaks and after she went to bed. all other presents were wrapped either after everyone went to bed, or before i went to work (which would be around 430am-ish)

I've the one camera charging, and I also have the digital camera charging. And I'm re-reading the directions on the digital camera so I can be prepared. I've to make copies of this dvd for DD's Nana, Uncle, Grandpa, and godparents. Er. i still haven't figured out how to make copies. That's a work in progress. ;)

I'm so excited!!! She's big enough this year to get excited about unwrapping presents. Last year she was just shy of 4mos old. I did the Christmas eve present with her tonight and she went nuts with tearing up the paper. I probably won't be able to post pics til tomorrow night or the 26th.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Kids are in bed, but my 13 year old isn't totally asleep as yet. I came down here as my husband is finishing watching this horror movie. Presents will come out in a half hour or so.

Dd 20 months woke up and ds6 is not asleep yet. He's so excited. He should have been asleep a long time ago! He came down a few minutes ago and I showed him on Norad Santa that Santa was in Newfoundland and he'd be coming here in another 2-3 stops!!! He'd better get right to sleep! We put out our cookies for Santa. Hubby is just getting the living room picked up while I'm feeding dd6 months. Hopefully soon! I can't wait to watch the kids in the morning! So much fun!!!

My gifts have been wrapped for almost three weeks. I am sick of looking at them. My cats are getting really bad with playing around them too. I will just be glad when everything is opened tomorrow. This waiting is the pits! ha ha.

I thought all 3 of mine were asleep. Was getting ready to go put everything under the tree (wrapped the other night). But my oldest daughter (12) just opened my door and said 'There aren't any presents under the tree'. I told her what time it was and told her to go back to bed. So probably another 1/2 hour to 1 hour. aye aye aye :tired:

Kids just went to sleep at 10pm. So they aren't quite asleep yet. DH and I are sitting here watching TV while we wait.. and then we'll begin getting things out and setup (batteries in some items that I am not wrapping). :D Batteries in my camera are charged up and ready to go. Was going to videotape but that's a PITA.

1am.. new pajamas are in the wash, they will put them on before opening presents and then wear them over to my brother in law's house. All presents wrapped, stockings stuffed.. and I realized I went WAYYYYYYYYY overboard. Oops.

I fell asleep watching "It's a Wonderful Life" with DH - woke up on the sofa a little after midnight... 11 year old was already asleep and had put out cookies and eggnog for Santa, himself. (Ahhhh - he is getting so old!) Just finished getting it all out and the dog decided she had to go out - so now I am wide awake and KNOW I should get some sleep - but am really having a tough time!

Funny, my sister called this morning. She fell asleep and didn't wake up till almost 3am. Still had wrapping to do and stockings to stuff. No presents out as yet. LOL. By 6am she was done and half hour later, my nieces and nephew came running downstairs. I feel for her!
