I can’t believe how quickly Christmas is coming; we have even seen our first Santa already! I wonder how many we will see before Christmas. The boys were not entirely convinced about this one, so I said I thought perhaps it was one of Santa’s helpers rather than the actual Father Christmas, to which one of them said I definitely think its two elves in there, one on the others shoulders! It is funny what goes through their minds. But best of all it’s another year of believing and I want to hang on to that. The boys also had a chance to decorate biscuits and have their face painted.
They have made me smiles lots lately, just the little things they do, my youngest has been collecting the nibs off coloured pencils and pretending they are his gems… whenever I see another little pile of the “gems” I beam. He has always been something of a collector, coming home with pockets laden with all kinds he has managed to salvage from the school field, but at least the latest collection is very colourful!
I am enjoying the build up to Christmas; we have quite a full calendar of events ahead of us, with school plays (my two are featuring as a rat and a dog this year), grotto visits and festive dinners. Our local theatre has had more exciting things to do lately too; I enjoy supporting them as much as possible.
I have been feeling a bit more tired than usual the last few weeks but I think its because I have been busier than usual behind the scenes on my blog. After my successful fundraiser I moved onto starting to write my Baby Shower Gift Guide feature ready for a surprise baby shower next week, I have kindly been gifted £360 worth of wonderful presents for a friend so I am sure she will be delighted when she finally sees them. Although I have vowed that is my final baby shower, so please friends take note NO MORE BABIES please.
