    well i have let the kids open gifts, even though i said they could wait til xmas day.

    baby has a cloth book with teether attached (nice gift), eldest has got an incredible hulk file-a-fax thing (very nice gift) and middle son has got a duck that moves around a "jigsaw puzzle" track (i'm not impressed but he thinks its great!).

    Costs us money to see Santa in the malls.

    This year I didn't have to wait in line and didn't have to pay a cent.

    A residence a few streets away did a wonderful Christmas display and Santa was there every night too, and he was the loveliest Santa and took time with the kids.

    We went to our local garden centre, it was fairly pricey £4 to see Santa and get a present, then £3 for a photo and then you could buy a frame for £2! The Santa did take a while talking to Noah which was nice and he chose his own present and chose one for bubs too.

    Ours was pretty crap. Didn't queue but it was £4 to see Santa and £5 for a gift and photo, so came to £9 altogether (silly me got the wrong end of the stick but luckily had a tenner lol). The Santa was really rubbish and not at all convincing and the picture was pretty bad but it was something I wanted to do with him and he got a little board book.
