Yeah we are in a new build and they do not come with much storage - we do have a huge boarded loft though so I think they may have to go in there as the kids definitely can't get in there

That sounds like a good hiding spot!

So I really want to put up the dec's DH is talking about getting some new ones this year - I suggested getting a small real tree for the orangery and let the kids buy some decorations to decorate it

We are planning on putting up the decorations on the night of the 30th so they are all up for 1st December and the kids will wake to decorations which I think will be so magical

What things do you guys do with decorations?

Also yesterday I went to Wilko and got a whole load of craft stuff so we can make Christmas crafts - I plan on making with the kids:

- Snowmen with cotton wall balls
- Christmas paper chains
- Christmas baubles
- decorate some paper Christmas tree's

Any other idea's?

Also I have asked my sister if she can make a Christmas card for me using the kids hand or foot print so I can use it to make Christmas cards for this year - does anyone know any good websites that you can upload a picture and then print Christmas cards from?

That's a good idea to let the kids decorate their own little tree and I love the craft ideas. I might have to try some of them with mine

They both really love doing craft stuff and I am hoping it will help with some calm weekends with the winter weather

Hopefully it will. It can be so hard to get out and about in winter with the horrible weather!

Yes we definitely get cabin fever
