BAAHUMBUG!

I'm getting fed up with wrapping my own Christmas presents.  This is how it went down.  Just before I left for Paradise my Mom gives me money to go Christmas Shopping for myself and all my siblings.  What?  That's no fun Mom!  I'm not going to be a bit surprised at all when it's Christmas morning and I'm opening the gifts that I picked out and bought for myself.  This is her response, "Well if you were MARRIED, (being as you are 28 and single) you would be buying gifts for your 'own' family!  You're not, so this is what happens - I give you money, you get what you want, you wrap, and then you act surprised on Christmas day!"  As I sit here and wrap my own gifts I am filled with the spirit of SCROOGE, so BAAHUMBUG to you all!  

Merry Christmas ;)

Hey, you send me the money, and I will GLADLY buy and wrap all your presents for you. Seriously. As my mom always says, "You got the money, I got the time!" Sounds fun, and I never have enough presents to wrap.

Well you will have some surprises. You just have to wait until Christmas to see your other presents!

My mom just gave us money. We get to buy our own presents too. I'm good with that.
