Got the kids stocking stuff out to sort and test stuff the stockings. It over flows nicely so remove some packaging and it should all fit in when wrapped.

I have however managed to end with a couple of extra presents for DS2 over DS1 so need to try and come up with another couple of small items but here is the stash. DS2 on the left and DS1 on the right.

I think Iím finally nearly there. I just need to get a couple of gift vouchers for my nephews and Iím done.

Iím waiting on a few deliveries from amazon, Claireís accessories and Thorntons. Everything should be here by the end of the week though hopefully.

Written most of the cards. I refuse to write any more OH can do a few since I wrap everything but my presents. OH keeps pushing me to start wrapping and put some presents under the tree. I think he just wants to wrap my gifts and get them under the tree but I like to have everything first.

I have bought the couple of extra stocking presents for DS1 to even it up. Need to decided what bits we have bought for DS2 that we are going to hold until his birthday (deliberate over buy as his birthday is early February).

We have also booked the entertainer and venue for his birthday party. Promise of a big party for his final birthday with his nursery friends.

This weeks to do list:

Get gift vouchers
Order cheese
Wrap santa presents
Buy Christmas radio times and highlight programs
Wrap presents to go to my sisters next week

Went manic on the wrapping this weekend. Wrapped all Friday evening, Sunday afternoon and Sunday evening. I did everything bar a few. I did take pictures but they are on my ipad and not my phone so i will upload at some point.

Took the kids on a Christmas trip to London on Saturday. They loved looking at all the lights and things. Saw the southbank Christmas market, house of parliament Christmas tree, trafalgar Square, covent garden, and of course oxford and regent street. We went into John lewis where they have a moz the monsters house. Scared the littlest a bit. We also went to the aquarium which they loved. They they saw the sharks being fed. Nothing is more exciting to small boys than watching big fish with big teeth eat smaller dead fish.

Done the first present drop today. Dropped some stuff with my mum for her to take to my sister's as I won't see her until boxing day. Also gave presents to our friends for their kids.

Just feels like the final mad rush now. Work is manic and will be right up to Friday. Kind of taking the shine off everything. Need to get my Christmas spirit back.

Thank you very much.

Been a busy week so I havenít been around much.

We went to the theater on Saturday to see the borrower. Kids loved and the Chinese we got afterwards as well.

Spent yesterday morning popping into see a few people only took DS2 with me as I went to my mums as she has 5 dogs there at the moment and DS1 is not a big fan of dogs. They are not all hers, 3 are, 1 is a foster dog and the last is one of my brothers new rescue puppy. My mum has it as they have gone north for a few days to visit his GF family but they are driving back down to my mums today.

While I was there as my other brother called (heís been in America since early Dec) to tell my mum he had got back fine, he was at my sisters as she had picked him up from the airport (she only lives 30mins from the airport) but his car had broken down while heíd been gone. Hopefully the breakdown people got him moving or my sister will have had a surprise addition for Christmas.

My inlaws cam to dinner last night and we did raclette. Itís basically melting cheese on potatoes but we have a hot stone on ours as well to cook meat and stuff. Everyone loved it and the kids really enjoy it as they get to cook their own food.

The kids have opened their gaint stockings from santa this morning. DS2 came into our room and told us that he must have been a really good boy and it didnít all fit in his stocking. Very cute. Not so cute though when as just gone 4am when he told me santa had been and I just told him it was too early and to go back to bed. Which he actually did until gone 7! I was only trying to buy myself another 30 mins or so.

There was a couple of funny reactions. DS1 looked really upset when DS2 opened a nerf nitro as he really wanted one. He just hadnít got as far as his yet.

DS2 loved his fingerling I had no idea he even knew what one was but aprently heíd seen it on tv after he wrote to santa so never said anything about wanting it.

DS2 also had a really funny reaction to a soft hulk toy. He had asked for a teddy and suddenly declared after opening it that wasnít right but he hasnít left it behind ever since.

Started cooking lunch. We do main presents after lunch but here is a picture of it all under the tree.

It sounds like you have had such a fun time lately doing activities and seeing family. Seeing the borrowers at the theatre sounded fun

I hope you all have a lovely day and enjoy Christmas dinner.

Lovely photo!
