Well December has arrived and the Christmas countdown is in full swing! We kicked off the festivities on Friday by getting the tree up for the Late Late Toy Show. For the first time I let the girls have full control over the decorating. They really got stuck in and managed to get half way up the tree. (It's still waiting for me to finish it off!!)
Once the tree decorating was complete I gave the girls some activity books to pass the time while they waited for the Toy Show to start. It didn't start til half 9 so you can imagine how restless they were getting. Just as they were about to give up I produced a bowl of goodies and a hot chocolate each (which Ella promptly spilt all over the place)..
It was their first year staying up and they loved it, Abigail's main ambition in life now is to be a toy tester on the Toy Show, I still want to do that!!
Saturday was spent recovering from chocolate hangover and Sunday was spent recovering from actual hangover while trying to navigate my way through all the crazy people in Smyths while we finally got the Christmas shopping done. Some people where shopping like the world was going to end tomorrow, others where losing the will to live over the lack of Elsa dolls! We avoided the Frozen section as best as we could except to pick up a Spinning Olaf for Ella *whispers* we got the last one on the shelf!!! As it was Olaf and not Elsa we didn't think there would be any problems until someone spotted it in our trolley and loudly asked "Oh where did you get that, I didn't see any of them, haha I might just have to take that on you..", at this point we laughed and then hid Olaf before quickly finishing up!!
Have you had any Frozen fan encounters?
So this week will be spent finishing off the decorating, trying to get my house under control and catch up on blogging! I have a few reviews ready to go out so keep your eyes open, but right now all I'm going to do is sit and drink coffee because everything else on my list involves moving..
