The in-laws have a tradition of always taking the children to McAdenville aka “Christmas Town, USA” every year. It’s about thirty minutes from here. They try and leave around 4:30 to beat traffic, and then they take them to dinner after seeing all the Christmas lights on all the pretty houses. Since one of the children has always been home with me in the mornings for the past six years, it’s hard for me to find time to wrap gifts. I know my children still nap, but I’ve always been afraid that they’ll wake up after their nap and catch me in the middle of wrapping their gifts from Santa. I’ve always taken this time while the children are gone to McAdenville to wrap all their Christmas gifts each year (read yesterday’s post if you missed how I’ve already finished shopping for the kiddos). Well, this year Lanier decided we should take this time to go out to dinner instead. Sounds like a plan to me! I guess I’ll have to plan on wrapping their gifts another day!
