... Feeling Festive ...

So I know its only November buuuuuuut we've put our first tree up!
I know, I know its early!
I'm usually one of those people who mock the people who put up their trees in November but I just couldn't help it.

We went out to Next last week to have a coffee and a browse around the Christmas decks and check out the Christmas PJs and whilst walking round we saw this light up star and the thin tree.

We were thinking we weren't going to be able to get a tree in the lounge this year as we had a move around in the summer and there was no longer the space for a tree but seeing as this one was thin we decided it would fit perfectly beside the fireplace.

We went home and measured the space first to make sure it would fit and then ordered it for next day delivery and because it was Black Friday we got free delivery :)


It fits perfectly and I'm completely in love with the star.
We've also decide we probably won't decorate this tree aa it looks nice enough with just the lights on.
We do however need something to cover the bottom of it, as I'm not really a fan of the stand.

We'll buy our real tree the second week of December, we're hoping to get an 8ft one this year.

Whilst in store I couldn't find any Christmas PJs but thankfully online they had a good range to pick from.

The twins & Ru got gifted some from Mothercare for a piece of writing a did for them about Noah's first Christmas (I will be sharing it on the blog v.soon) so I only had Noah to buy for.

So now all the boys have their new Christmas PJs for Christmas Eve, I also have a very sweet Christmas Eve box which was gifted from Mothercare to fill up with goodies and everyone including Jon and myself have Christmas Jumpers/t-shirts for Christmas Day.
I also couldn't resist buying Christmas PJs from Primark for Jon and I.

I feel this year my Christmas spirit has tripled and I just can't wait and everything festive I see I want!
The boys are all writing their letters to Father Christmas tonight and we have decided that this year we are going to have a little more self control over presents, as usually we go OTT and they get far too much and they never know what to do with it all.

So Santa will make them something they want and fill up their stockings then Jon and I will get them 
something they want, something they need, something to read and something to wear.

This will save us a small fortune and hopefully they won't be overwhelmed by having too much. 
As everyone in the family spoils them and there really is no need for us to buy them 10+ presents each.

We've told them this and they all seemed more than happy about it and have all been thinking hard about what they really really want.

I'm not sure I'll be sharing any Christmas gift guides this year, I've just come to the end of my big to do list of reviews and I have a couple more to arrive but other than that I think I'm done with reviews for the rest of this year.

I want to focus more on them having fun in the run up to Christmas and not being in undated with toys to review as last year made it hard for family members to buy for them as they already had so much.

So I think I'll just be sharing festive fun posts with you such as writing about all the boys 1st Christmases, What's going inside their Christmas Eve box, Festive bakes, Festive makes and family time.

Have you got a tree up yet?
