It’s been manic of late we have had winter germs to contend with, heaps of Christmas activities to head too and the Christmas nativity and school shows to prepare for. But even with all that I have been much more calmer than usual, thanks to PayPal the presents are all ordered and I have had more time on my hands. We have managed to squeeze in extra fun during the run up to Christmas all because PayPal made shopping so easy for us; you can read all about our positive experiences here.
This year we started using an Elf Door, so we have had our work cut out thinking of exciting items and messages to leave outside it!
One morning we left a pair of elf underpants and a little note saying sort out some of your old clothes for charity. The boys were amazed by the tiny pants and even more so when I showed them a picture of them in the window of a charity shop with a price tag on!
We have been to visit Santa in his grotto, I think we are on visit three so far but I am sure we have time to squeeze in a couple more yet!
We headed to a Messy Church Christmas crafts themed session and youngest enjoyed adding some extra sparkle on the Christmas tree with his homemade decoration.
I have even had a Christmas party with my girls! It’s nice for the parents to let their hair down occasionally and I look relaxed and happy with my friends because I am not panicking about last minute gift buying!
We have had no worries about hurriedly scheduling in a shopping trip or two we just fill our time with lots of festive entertainment instead. As you can see thanks to PayPal we are giving the boys (and ourselves!) a magical Christmas.
