kristenhowerton I was going to play some carols on the piano but then India decided to pull her drumset into the living room so then Jafta needed to get his bass and amp so Kembe needed a djembe so Karis needed a shaker and suddenly it's a family band night. @markhowerton 2h

kristenhowerton I'm struck today by how our annual traditions are such a marker of the passing of time. Sunrise, sunset, and all that. @timtaber @tracytaber @lunabirdie @moyamonroe @stevemonroe7 7h

kristenhowerton I have officially entered the "slap a bow on it, I don't even care if you can tell what it is" phase of giftwrapping. 1d
  •   larathefarmerswife I had the ridiculous Pinterest-fueled delusion of kraft paper wrapping tied in baker's twine. 4 hours later, my fingers are blistering, my back is aching, and my wrapping is half done. Gift bags, it is. 1d
  •   vitelinatristis My mum went through this exact phase when we were younger. It's great that you're talking about it, spreading awareness will hopefully mean more people will come forward to speak about their experiences. Do your parents know about this? 23h
  •   mrscjsmoove Thank you for this idea! I'll be on slapping a bow on everything tonight. 19h
  •   joymwenberg Santa doesn't wrap gifts. He doesn't have time for that. All gifts from him have bows and tags only. Especially the weird-shaped ones. 18h
  •   tonyastaab I'm even past that point. I reached the $1 santa sack at Michael's point. Throw gift in, pull string. They had them in 5 patterns so now I don't even need name tags. 17h
  •   coolteamblt Santa gifts are never wrapped in our house, and I but my paper on clearance the year before and wrap as I buy. Or I aim for that, at least. #hidinginthebasementwrapping 10h
  •   coolteamblt *i buy my paper. 10h
  •   lachicarenee Omg @kristenhowerton I couldn't stop laughing at this lol merry christmas 4h

kristenhowerton Five seconds before they demolished it. Do you let your kids eat the gingerbread house after decorating? I used to make them wait, but now I let them go at it. Seems like it's more fun for them that way. 1d
  •   bfutrell We made the mistake of letting the boys munch on the candy while decorating after dinner and they were up hrs past their bedtime because of the sugar rush. We won't be making that mistake next year! Ha. 1d
  •   leahmariv Mine waited like 2 hours 1d
  •   garconnie We keep ours and blow them up with fireworks on new years 1d
  •   mommafoster4 Totally! 1d
  •   kelgee117 We never eat ours, so @garconnie has given me an excellent idea for New Year's Eve!! 1d
  •   sheerjeenius Love @garconnie 's idea! 1d
  •   ecoates4 We put ours outside on Christmas Day for the birds and squirrels. 1d
  •   alysabajenaru Good idea. My mother-in-law just told me that she put hers in the attic and the rats ate it. 1d
