Is it too early to get worked up about Christmas?

I am looking forward to this Christmas more than any other I can remember!

This is the first year that Jack will really get what's going on. This is his 3rd Christmas. He enjoyed last year, but this time he's already loving all the Christmas decorations in town and in the shops. He loves the Christmas tree & decoration section in the supermarket! He recognises pictures of Santa too. I tried to explain that Santa brings presents for all the good boys and girls but I don't think that has sunk in yet. I'll work on it though!

Also, this is Tom's first Christmas, and that's always going to be special. I've bought him a Christmas Pudding suit to wear! And we still have Jack's Santa suit from his first Christmas so we have a spare in case of accidents. (I'm wanting to get Jack an elf suit for this year).

I'm itching to get up into the loft and get the tree and decorations out, but I'm waiting until Dec 1st. Mark wants to wait longer but no way! First window on those advent calanders = tree up and decs out! I've dug out the Christmas tunes CD already and have it stashed ready to get Fairy Tail of New York played as soon as December rolls round!

Our first Christmas as a family of 4! Me, my hubby and our two sons. YAY!

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…

Bath night with these two horrors!
