My 1st Christmas Journal 2017


Eeeeek doing my 1st Christmas Journal and I am so excited for Christmas this year I cannot wait to see the kids reaction to it all

So I would like to introduce myself and my family:

I am 37 years old DH is 39 and we have 2 little people Elliot who is 3 (4 in February) and Izzy who just turned 2. We also have to furry babies Chloe (8.5) and Shyla (3) who are Shar Pei

So this year my siblings and partners have decided we are doing a secret santa with a 5 limit to make it more interesting!! Annoyingly I have my youngest sister (there is me the eldest, 2 sisters and the youngest my brother) she is quite picky but I think I have found the present for her

We are doing Elfs for the 1st time this year we have Elvis the boy Elf and Ella the girl Elf and come December they will be up to mischief (that is if I can pri Elvis away from Elliot at night )

I am also going to do a Christmas Eve box this year which will be left by Elvis & Ella for Elliot & Izzy

My ideas for that is going in the box are:

- New Christmas PJs (got from Sainsburys in 25% off)
- Christmas Themed sticker books (got these from Osbourne Books)
- Christmas book (Ordered 10 Little Elves from Amazon)
- Reindeer food
- Nice Certificates (ready to print)
- Christmas DVD
- Sweet treat (Kinder Reindeer)

So I ordered everything yesterday from either John Lewis or Amazon and it will all be arriving shortly

Then comes the task of wrapping which I always love the idea of but by the time I have finished I am done

This year I am doing the kids in special paper so they think the toys they put on their Christmas list have come from Santa & the stocking fillers
And then a different paper for everything else

Bev - you know me a bit of a control freak so I have had excel lists and budgets going for a while I have just been waiting the go ahead from DH to spend

Talia - I found a lovely little template online for the Nice certificate so I have created one for them both

Yeah wrapping I find is like ironing I like it for the most part but then I get to breaking point I am ok if I have some wine and watch a film whilst doing it

That's great the first of the items arrived

I hide presents in a big storage cupboard on the landing. Holly never goes in there as it's dark and she thinks it's scary, and James doesn't have the strength to open the door yet, so I think the hiding spot will work for a while!
