Making Christmas SpecialNovember 6, 2015
This week I was at the Dream Toys event and I was asked a few times what my girls want for Christmas. It was actually a huge surprise to everyone to hear that they had asked me for a large cardboard box filled with helium balloons. They also asked if I would wrap all the doorways in the house in wrapping paper on Christmas Eve which is something we have done the last few years. They also want to make snowman soup (hot chocolate) and sprinkle reindeer food outside as well as go carol singing. I love the fact that they take the spirit of Christmas so seriously and think more about the fun of it rather than what presents they can have. Now don’t get me wrong they have asked Santa for a laptop so they are not completely non materialistic and if they are sat with a toy catalogue they are capable of pulling out a few items they would like but the things we do together are much more important.
The other day a video popped up on facebook which was an old ikea advert and it really made me think. Check out the video below.
Why not make your own list with your family and make this Christmas one for you all to remember.
