Flying to Aruba With Christmas Presents

After dh's and my recent discussion, I thought it a good time to rewrite this post from the end of 2007 when our family spent it's first Christmas in Aruba. Each year when we travel, we pack our gifts, along with wrapping paper, scissors, gift tags and the much need scotch tape in order to wrap our gifts upon arrival at our destination.

Just remember to pack the scissors in the suitcase and not the carry on.
