Merry Christmas Eve and Giveaway Winner

Merry Christmas Eve! Things are a whirlwind of activity here on Christmas Eve.  In Spanish, poinsettias are called Nochebuenas, or Christmas Eves!  It's amazing to see Pointsettias growing wild in Mexico. 

Natalia woke up with a terrible cough and cold this morning and I'm probably going to take her to urgent care this morning because she suffers from asthma and has trouble breathing whenever she gets the slightest cold. She's currently doing a breathing treatment...fingers crossed this gets better sooner rather than later. And since we may not be at home for holiday break, I want to make sure she is ok to travel. ;)

I have a few last minute packages to wrap, too. It's funny because the gifts I give to my minnies from Santa are wrapped turbo style in special paper from "Santa." It's quantity versus quality of wrapping. Some gifts are incredibly difficult to wrap. This year's winner for most difficult shape to wrap is the Lalaloopsy doll. With one special gift for others, it's easier to embellish gifts a la Martha Stewart. Here are some beautifully wrapped gifts from Maryland Pink and Green readers.

I'm looking forward to today's Christmas Eve church service this afternoon, too. The bells, the candles, and the music are so lovely and I never tire of hearing the Christmas story from the Bible.

In other exciting news, I want to announce the winner from the giveaway from Purseladytoo. Congratulations to entry number 9 from Sarah Johnson.  Please contact me with your mailing address and I will forward it to Purseladytoo.  Thank you to everyone who entered the giveaway and to Purseladytoo for sponsoring such a generous preppy gift. 

Wishing you all a wonderful day full of joy and love!
