Last year I was devastated when Boxing Day rolled around and I realised I didn't get a photo of the girls with Santa Claus.!
I couldn't believe it! How did I manage to forget such an important event!?
This year I wasn't going to allow it to happen again so I got in early!
It's not even December yet and I've already got the girls photo done with Santa.
It breaks my heart though - I think they're getting a bit too big for Santa's knee now!
But, this year I'm a lot more organised for Christmas.
I've got everybody's present except for two which I think is pretty good!
I have to say, it helps when you've got money to spend .... this time last year we didn't have an excess of funds so it made it difficult to buy things for Christmas. It was a very lean Christmas for us last year.
This year however, I've spent a bit more than I normally would but boy am I having fun doing it!!
You really appreciate having money when you've gone without for so long!
