Dec 24. Louise had to spend much time wrapping gifts, but so did the other girls. Because Dani and Ian have to return to Los Angeles on a 4:30 P.M. flight from Alexandria on Christmas day, we are opening gifts tonight so they will not be pressed for time tomorrow. Even though the "gift time" was set at 9:00 P.M., some gifts were being wrapped at the last minute. I'm sure you can believe that.
