Really beginning to get into the swing of Christmas Planning now 🙂
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! 🙂 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! 😉
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.
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! 😉
