The book advent calendar

I've seen a lot of posts on other lovely blogs, Facebook,twitter and instagram about this fab idea.....
wrap up 24 books and let the children pick one each night on the lead up to Christmas.

I think this idea is amazing and wish id known about it sooner. As you know we do love our books in this house! I think The book advent calendar will make story time that little bit more exciting as they won't know what book they will be reading until they have opened it.

The books can be new or old or a mixture of both. I've bought some new ones and picked out some old ones. Mainly they are all Christmas themed and some are our all time favourites. 

I have 13 so far and some more in the post which I have ordered from amazon. I love buying new books, it gives me a warm fuzzy feeling. "My names Hannah and I am a book hoarder!"

Once I have all my books I'll then do the fun bit if wrapping them all up. 

I'm really getting into the Christmas spirit now, I'll be singing Christmas songs before you know it. I
ordered the boys a Christmas elf (elf on the shelf but a bit cheaper), I really think all the boys will
love it. I usually say the elves are watching but that eventually leads to a very freaked out Noah. So I
think if he can actually see this little doll he won't get so spooked.
They all love toy story and they all still think toys come alive when they aren't around. So this should
go down a treat, I just have to make sure I can think of some fun things for the little elf to get up too
whilst they are sleeping.

What Christmas traditions do you do in your house, or are you starting any new ones year?

Review || Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture

So its my cousins wedding this weekend and I'm having to make my legs suitable for public viewing! Usually my legs are hidden and the only leg skin that see the light of day are the bits that peak out behind the holes in my jeans.

I don't tend to get my legs out but when I do, I do like them to look good!
I'm pretty lazy when it comes to shaving my legs, and I will let them grow rather wildly if I have no reason to show them off! Obviously something Jon loves hates with a passion!
I was very kindly sent Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture , to try! The fact its an all in one really appealed to me, because.... I am..... a lazy shaver!

Potty Training Academy // Sticker Chart.

Ru has taken to potty training like a pro! He's had hardly any accidents and is no longer using nappies during the day.

I started him off in Bambino Mio training pants but after a day of a couple accidents he started taking himself to the toilet without any prompt from me.

I introduced him to his Potty Training Academy sticker chart on day one and he was very keen to fill it up, so even when he didn't need the loo, he would try and squeeze something out just to get a sticker.

We used both a toddler loo seat and the carry me potty, but he prefers to do his wee's just like his brothers...standing up. He sings putting out the fiiiire when he's weeing (god knows where he got that from! lol.) 

The first real test was sending him to nursery and seeing if he returned with a bag full of wet pants. I made sure the washing machine was free for his return but when he came home wearing the same outfit that he went in in was such a win.

The sticker chart was a great help with gett…
