DD1 is being a bit tricky this year!

We've just been talking about her list and she's asked for a giant LOL suprise and limited edition shopkins.

I tried to explain to her that there's no giant LOL surprises, but she said Santa can make one 😂 I also told her Santa can't bring only limited edition shopkins, he just brings the normal packs.

I refuse to buy a giant LOL suprise, even if I could get hold of one, because they look like a waste of money for what you get.

Anyway we've got the list down to

Shopkins
LOL suprise (the smaller one)
Shimmer and shine stuff

All of which I've already got her 😀

What does everyone do with the letters for Santa? Is there actually somewhere you can post them to? We've never really written a letter before.

If you Google Royal Mail Santa theres an address you can send them too and you might get a reply (don't think it's guarenteed). NSPCC do letters for a charity donation as well. John Lewis had a post box where you could put them in and the boys each got a lovely reply. Now we put them in the chimney for them to be "magiced" away in a puff of glitter.... Haha!

That's great thank you. We don't have a John Lewis near here and I'm sure my Mil mentioned something about doing the NSPCC, but I wasn't sure what it was. I'll probably just use the Royal Mail address and it doesn't matter about a reply, the girls will be happy if they get the presents on their lists.

I asked my older son (age 7) what he would like from Father Christmas, he didn't answer so I listed several toys he played with or that I thought he would enjoy, after I said Care Bears he repeated it a couple of times so that seems to be his answer.
I know exactly which Care Bears, he has some small plastic ones, he got a set of five for his birthday from me and a set of two from my mum. There is another set of two he is missing from his collection which would complete the set so it is those two he would like.

My younger son (age 4) cannot understand the question or answer but he is obsessed with the Leapfrog ice cream cart adverts, he loves toy ice creams. He also became fixated on a toy plastic Minnie Mouse he saw on my computer screen when I was looking up little figures for his brother. He kept touching it and putting my hand on it. So I would guess those would be his Christmas wishes.

They are both going to get their wishes for Christmas, my older son will get his Care Bears on Christmas Eve (we spread out their presents so they don't get overwhelmed). My younger son has the ice cream cart has his main present and will have the little Minnie Mouse in his stocking.

They both have other things as well but those are the particular things they have expressed an interest in.
My son Eric has this van: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-PULL-....c100705.m4780

He loves it and its ice cream themed so maybe your LO would like it too?

DD asked for presents and cake. No more explanation to that.

DS doesn't know.
