December 1st! Whooooooooo!

Hee hee hee hee!

Christmas is getting closer! I've pretty much all of my shopping now, and most of the crafting too. Jack opened the first window on his calander this morning. Tom's still a bit little for that yet (poor mite, I do feel mean) but he is getting extra cuddle and kisses instead.

They are both down for a nap at the moment, and I am toying with the idea of getting their Christmas suits out so that when they get up I can dress them up and take some photos. I'm thinking Christmas Cards, Desktop Wallpaper, Avatars for the forum, facebook etc.... Jack is an Elf, Tom is a Christmas Pudding *dance*

The Christmas Tree is still firmly up in the loft though. I have been hinting (out right pestering actually) for a while only to have Mark say "It's only fecking November!" but he can't say that now, can he? Hee hee! He keeps going on about the "12 days of Christmas" which is all very well, but that starts on Christmas day, right? (I'm pretty certain on that fact, message me if I'm wrong) NO WAY ARE WE WAITING TILL THEN!

Today is the first day of advent.... today should be Christmas Tree day!

I'll work on him again when he gets home. I'd do it myself but he assures me I wont be able to get in the loft now that the floor's been raised, and there's no light up there, and he knows where all the Christmas stuff is and I don't.... I have to agree that me trying to get it while I am alone with the kids might not be a smart idea. (I've already nearly killed myself going down the back steps with the laundry  - Icey steps! Eek! - I'll be taking the phone with me to call 999 if I do go over and break something!)

Oh, and I've been playing Christmas songs to the kids off YouTube too!

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…
