    How fun! Good thing you don’t like eggnog…it’s really expensive this year! And yes, wrapping paper, definitely wrapping paper! I’m an addict. Seriously. I started this season with 54 rolls! Told myself I was not allowed to buy any this year. Blew it the other night and bought three more rolls though.
