Christmas Planning – 8 November 2009

Really beginning to get into the swing of Christmas Planning now πŸ™‚

Yesterday I went shopping with DD7 and we managed to get lots of presents bought. Today we wrapped, labelled them and bagged them ‘per family’ – so that they are easier to find when it’s time to hand them out! πŸ™‚ Hoping to get the last of the teacher/extended family gifts bought and wrapped this week. Also hoping that the quaint shop around the corner will have their Advent Calendar of Danish beers ready – always appreciated by my Dear Dad…

Also hoping to fit in a visit to a big toy shop with the DKs so that they can have a good look and make their lists before the family start asking what they would like. DH and I will buy the DKs gifts at the end of November. One large thing each and a few small gifts. They get far too many presents as it is! πŸ˜‰

DD7 also chose her ‘party outfit’ yesterday. Pink sparkly cardigan, pink t-shirt and sparkly pink lacy skirt. Was going to take a picture of it for the blog, but she has wrapped it up and labelled it! LOL Our first ‘official’ Xmas party is only 3 weeks away, so it’s nice to have that sorted.

Still haven’t ordered my Christmas cards… Will stop procrastinating and just order some tomorrow – I know, I know – they do not have to be perfect!! [I can hear the Flylady’s voice in my head. Again.]

If you’re following my blog, you will know that I’ve been baking a few Christmas things to stow away in the freezer. Yesterday it was Savoury Cheese Crisps. Hoping to do more of that kind of thing next weekend.

If you want to see how others do their Christmas planning, go check out the Flyady, Candace, Krista and Pippa. Always nice to get some new ideas and inspiration! πŸ™‚

Oh – by the way – DH told me the other day that we might be 16 at the dinner table on Christmas Day… Our dinner table. Good job I’m organised! πŸ˜‰

Happy planning!
