First Santa

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.

Had fun at the weekend decorating biscuits and seeing there first Santa of the season x

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.

Arts and crafts time, lots of glue and glitter everywhere! x

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.

If you need to buy a baby present soon keep an eye out for my Baby Shower Gift Guide #babyshower #babygifts #newborn x
