It’s really the best but it’s also a time where one can go a bit overboard with the spending… This year I have quite a long list of gifts to buy but also have a budget to stick to! I’ve been shopping around and thought I’d share a list of christmas gifts under R200 that may come in handy! Some may call these “Stocking Stuffers” but I actually think these outshine the more expensive gifts as they are things that can be made use of 🙂
As we approach the spirit of the festive season, I’m really excited to welcome back our annual visitor who brings such joy into our home … our very own Elf on the Shelf.
The Elf on the Shelf is a fun-filled Christmas tradition which has captured the hearts of children and adults everywhere. The official Scout Elves, adopted by families around the world, help Santa manage his nice list by reporting back to him at the North Pole.
It’s almost Holiday time and I cannot tell you how much I am looking forward to having a bit of a break and spend some quality time with the kids, friends of family. That is exactly what the festive season is about!
We had our family picture taken with Santa last week and as we sat in Santa’s sleigh, I got very nostalgic thinking that this was our 4th year sitting there as a family. I then looked back at the pictures from the 1st year where Alyssa was so tiny, then 2 years later there was Aidan, and this year – we have 2 “big” children.
It makes me feel old, yet proud. Tired, yet accomplished. I don’t know how else to explain it, but I feel as if time is moving by way too quickly.
