  25. Love the features! Thank you for hosting! Nope! I have not started wrapping presents. :( At least we are not sick. One year we were so sick and could my husband and I could not finish wrapping presents. Instead we wrapped the presents in Target plastic bags we had left over. I think we have even used some kitchen garbage bags and small blankets. lol It is the thought that counts. ;)
