Christmas 2020!

If anything, this year has shown that we don’t need more ‘stuff’ we just need each other. The saying, my presence is your present, has never been truer!

BUT, in our house, Santa Claus is a big part of Christmas. My mum believes, I believe and the kids believe. Why? Well because its magical and it’s wonderful….who doesn’t need a little sprinkle of magic in their lives!

In saying that we don’t want more ‘stuff’, also keeping in mind that ‘experiences’ are limited (thanks COVID19), here is a list of the things we have purchased for Aidan, Evie and our nieces and nephews!

Bonus Question

My child is born a week before Christmas what do I do?

I am right there with you. In December, not only do we have Christmas but we have 4 family birthdays! One of them being Evie who was born on the 16th of December.

We always keep Birthdays and Christmas separate. We ensure birthday wrapping for birthday presents and Christmas wrapping for Christmas presents – ask any December baby, this is VERY important!

This year, my family celebrated Evie’s half birthday which is the 16th of June. She was gifted the HAPE doll house, which I mentioned above. It was a great way to give her a toy-top-up mid-year.

These are Evie’s birthday presents from us this year…

My 3 year old Nephew is also born a week before Christmas. He and Evie were almost birthday buddies! This is what I got him….
