So what is going to keep me occupied from now to Christmas 2017 is getting bits in for the flat as apart from a few bits I am starting from scratch. Some excellent savings on mothercare site - just spend DSs money from PIL on more trackmaster. I then have birthdays in jan, may, aug and oct and then 2 holidays planned that need preparing for lol.Should pick up the present planning baton in april lol.I've still managed to get to the shops and done card factory, got all our cards for next year, gift bags, pin the nose on the reindeer, 2 make your own Santa stop here signs, a decoration for the bookcase and a Xmas teddy each for the kids..for 13! Got this from boots for my sis in law reduced to 8 Also got this for my stepmum was half price so ended up at 22.50 BUT I used my points so basically got it free!Also went to Argos for the tech frog thing for Noah but there was an error and turns out they don't have it in stock but instead I got him is, what a bargain!So my fellow Christmas crackers current friends and new let's get on with our crackers Xxx I was a newbie to the Christmas crackers 2016 and loved it although I was distracted with having a new baby in October so wasn't very active on the thread but loved lurking!I can't wait for Christmas 2017 as my little Noah will be 14 months old then so much more active!1 thing I'm going to do differently next year is wait as the sales in November early December were fab.
To keep myself occupied until xmas 2017 I have dd1 birthday in February, my birthday in April (plan to do a short break away to Harry Potter world), Easter, dd2 birthday in July, would love to do a summer holiday this year (we've never had a holiday before), and then finally Noah's first birthday in October!

We going to be going to my mums Christmas Eve and leave about 3/4pm then either walk or bus home(depending on weather and how we feel, a tradition I have wanted to start for ages) and look at the lights as we go.
When we get home either have a take away or have a snack attack dinner, Christmas eve bags, Bath, pjs, film and chill. Boxing going round my eldest dd as it will be first Christmas in her new place too. Problem is not everyone likes the same things to eat. The hampers went down well because the kids could see what was inside. I will try to pick up wrapping and cards this week to put in the loft.
