You better not pout, you better not cry...

I'm telling you why. Because if you were in Monkey's class, you'd want this gift.
I am so thrilled over Monkey's gifts for his friends at school.
Well, I'm like Mrs. Dunbar thrilled.
You see I am so uncreative when it comes to wrapping gifts. My presents look like the ugly duckling at Christmas over at my mom's house on Christmas morn. My mom and sister-in-law bedazzle everyone with their gift wrapping hoo-rah. No joke. They like use fresh berries, twine, ornaments, trinkets, fancy bows... all sorts of stuff. And I litterally either use last years bags, or try and wrap the gifts without getting the paper to crinkly. Wrapping drives me nuts.
But I just put together these little coloring books and crayons and they are so adorable, and I even used an ornament to go with each gift.
Not the best quality pictures, but I hope you get the idea...





This last picture is excatly what a little girls gift looks like.
Inside the mitten are 4 princess crayons. (Boys got Crayola.)
If the party wasn't tomorrow morning, and if I didn't just buy these ornaments two hours ago, I would probably even put the year on them. 8 bright pink girl gifts and two stunning blue boy gifts. Oh and did I mention that they are all different? Each box came with 4 mittens and 4 stockings, with different patterns.
Anyhow, I'm proud of myself and my little flair of creativity.
Happy wrapping!
