The Elf on the Shelf

Written by Lauren. Posted in General

Last year we bought into the craze that seems to be sweeping houses in every corner of the globe.  The boys didn’t really “get it” so it was a bit lack lustre but this year as December crept upon us the excitement from the Boys motivated me to make a proper effort with the Elf.  In fact our one Elf became 3!  I decided that it would be more fun with multiple Elves and a lovely lady on a Facebook group made a Tutu for our girl and my parents and I spent an evening performing surgery to wire up their limbs.  After much deliberation they were named Snap, Crackle and Pop!


Our Organised Christmas

Written by Lauren. Posted in Miscellaneous

I like to think I am super organised and I write a millions lists.  In reality the lists never get looked at again and I end up flapping around or forgetting things.  The only exception is Christmas.  I have to be SUPER organised for Christmas there is just so much going on.  We have the Hubby and my Mum have birthdays, our Wedding Anniversary, my birthday and Spike’s birthday all within 4 weeks of each other.  Couple all of these with Christmas and it makes for a VERY hectic, expensive time.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Written by Lauren. Posted in General, Meme's

December 1st is mine and the Hubby’s wedding anniversary but since having kids, and not having the freedom to pop out for a meal or a date to the cinema without it costing us an extra £20 for a babysitter, we have stuck to the tradition of having a nice meal and putting up the Christmas tree together.  Unfortunately for me, and luckily for Hubby as he is a bit of a scrooge, today he had to work a 12 hour shift so I opted to put the decorations up with Spud who has become increasingly excited about all things Christmas over the past few weeks.
