Christmas Gift Wrapping Contest 2014

I love this tradition. Formally, it’s a new one. Historically, it’s just what our family does! We love to wrap.

This year’s categories were:

1. Mono-colored wrapping: All one color

2. Free Style: Boundary less creativity

3. Repurposed: Reused materials for a different use

Participants and judges were the same as last year.

Participants: Daddy, Sister Sarah and myself

Judges: Mama, Dave and Mike

Time:

Christmas Eve, after church. After cookies have been set out for Santa. After carrots have been carefully laid out in a perfect formation in the driveway for the reindeer. After kids have been tucked into bed. After cookies have been eaten. After carrots have been chewed up and spit out on the driveway in a perfect formation. After we gather our hidden gifts from corners all over the house. After scoring papers have been handed out. After we collapse onto the couch in front of the Christmas tree.

Whew!

Okie doke, first up… Mono-Colored.
