Have you started thinking about Christmas yet? Last night, I attempted the Christmas card photos - DS dressed up as an Elf and DD as a fairy. I gave up after about 20 photos of ridiculously cheesy grins, none of which were great so I'm going to have to see if I can photoshop some together!
There will be 11 (possibly 12!) of us around my table this year so I'm trying to organise in advance. I've been buying one Christmas item each time I visit the supermarket, not only to try and spread the expense but also so I don't have a huge load all in one go! My utility room is fast filling up with mince pies, paper plates and crackers ;)
I'm planning to give the kids a few things at the lunch table to keep them occupied, either while waiting for the food to be served or when they are finished eating but the adults are still going. In Sainsburys this morning, I found some wonderful Stacking Crayons for £1.99 a packet - way cheaper than Amazon - which I'm going to pair with some Christmas colouring pages.
My presents are very nearly all purchased, and I can't wait to get our tree up...in fact, this year, I'm really looking forward to Christmas! Not quite at the counting-down-the-days stage but still...
