Christmas with kids!
We absolutely love christmas in this house! We would love to get our tree and decs up now, but last time we put them up before the first of december, christmas seemed to take forever to get here. So we are holding ourselves back (which is proving difficult now we have almost everyones presents). Now onto presents. With harry first we dont need to get him many, dont really need to wrap them all (he will only be 20 weeks) and he can come shopping with us and he doesn’t know what were doing! Now with the older two (Almost 12yrs and 10yrs) things are getting alot more difficult. We can only go when they are at school, we need to hide them (which is becoming more and more difficult) and we need to wrap them almost as soon as we have them so if they do find them they wont know what weve got. But the biggest thing of all is they are alot more expensive now. They are both into gadgets like phones, ipods, ds, psp’s etc. Clothes at their ages are more expensive than babies clothes and they are aware of more stuff around, not just your standard argos catalogue stuff! ha ha. One thing i am pleased about that i had harry before christmas is its giving me at least one more christmas where the kids believe in santa 🙂 and hopefully even when they dont believe anymore (which is sadly going to come) they will keep up appearances for harry.
