another true story: cam tells everyone to open the gifts we got them when they are at our house so they have to open empty boxes! :)

  4. What lovely decorations! Great idea about getting them on clearance after Xmas. I should probably go out and do the same thing. Oh, and I also love wrapping the empty boxes to fill the tree...I would have never thought of that!
