Today was our parish's

annual Habitat For Humanity Gift Wrap Day. The local mall donates the use of kiosk space and tables, and several businesses in town donate the paper, tissue, boxes, ribbons/bows, and tape (or the money to cover the cost) for the month of December. Different groups in town sign up to wrap packages for folks and all of the proceeds go toward the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity and the house they are currently building. We were in charge of the 10 AM to 4 PM time frame this year (the last couple of years we have done the whole day to 7 PM), and I had signed up for the second part, from 1 to 4 PM.
Astrid went with me to help supervise inspect presents (she is under the impression that a radio controlled helicopter or car would be an awesome present for someone to get her).

She decided she should also be in charge of making sure the ribbons and bows were all securely attached to the packages,

and after that she thought that directing what colors of ribbon was put on each kind of wrapping paper was a good idea.

I'm not sure why she was quite so bossy today, normally she is much more polite. I think it might have had something to do with both of us forgetting to eat before we left the house.

I didn't realize until these photos that Astrid was so tiny. I loved wrapping presents at the mall "for a donation" kiosk, but I'm now allergic to the cheap red dye they use in wrapping paper, so...
