dd1 is asking questions about Santa and Christmas.

couldn't resist getting her the tacky decoration in Primark she spotted.

the joy in her eyes when she sees it on Xmas day!

we've made the ornaments and broken out the 30 Things to Make for Christmas cards and she's made some choices - not ones I'd make but hey, she'll be thrilled to bake and make.

i just need some rum for my brownies.

oooo, can't wait!

ethanchristopher Tue 30-Sep-08 21:51:11

has anybody else had the "I WANT THAT FOR CHRISTMAS!!!!" at every advert yet?

poppy34 Tue 30-Sep-08 21:52:08

I can hardly wait to show dd my collection of tacky highly beautiful lighted decorations (including the one renamed rivers of blood by dh)

FrockHorror Tue 30-Sep-08 21:53:27

Nope, but when pressed, DD has informed DH and I that she wants a Lazytown box hmm with Stephanie stuff inside.

2 days prior to this however, DH and I went out and bought her a bike. It is vivid pink, with Stephanie all over it and it comes in the Lazytown box so desperately wanted grin

dd says 'i want that' to every single advert atm. I try to watch dvd's or cbeebies nowgrin

I'm getting organised for it all, buying gifts when I see things cheap etc

I can't wait til December 1st and I can get the decorations upgrin

ScottishMummy Tue 30-Sep-08 21:57:24

i hate premature xmas stuff

poppy34 Tue 30-Sep-08 21:57:36

aww ec - the tree lights have now been suspended due to dh falling out of a tree two years ago ... so have to content myself with the tacky indoor decorations - dd too small to object (yet)

JackieNo Tue 30-Sep-08 21:57:55

Every day, DS says 'I'm going to ask Father Christmas to make or buy me a [insert toy of the day - remote controlled something or other, usually].' Then the next day it'll be something different. We've had remote control monster truck, rc flying dragon hmm, rc car that gets bigger and smaller, can't remember what else. I keep having to 'manage his expectations'grin.

Christmas is for December not for life.


FrockHorror Tue 30-Sep-08 22:01:48

I was shopping the other day and Allders had Christmas trees displayed at the front of the store. Don't get me wrong, I lurve Christmas but even I was a bit hmm at Christmas trees in the middle of September.

ScottishMummy Tue 30-Sep-08 22:02:15

Eddas Tue 30-Sep-08 22:03:40

i'm excited about christmas, and have been buying presents etc but even i hate the chrsitmas decorations and chocolates in the shops now. They shouldn't be allowed until November IMO!
