What do you do?
I am going to leave a hamper for the girls from the elves (Lauren is unders strict instructoin/bribary to go along with this!) which contains the Nativity on DVD, new PJ's and Bed socks, reindeer dust with a poem, a book about christmas eve which is personalised to M and L, and some goodies to have whilst watching TV. Have I missed anything? Molly has a duvet cover which is a santa stop here design (adopted from L who is obviously far too old for it )
We have family coming over late afternoon/evening so once they go we are going to get our PJ's on and put out Milk and cookies for Father Christmas (at M's request) plus carrots, sprinkle the reindeer dust and watch a film / read
Before the battle of bedtime commences

Sounds like a good day.
We will take the kids out to the park, soft play or somewhere in the morning to run off a bit of energy.
In the afternoon we are meeting friends in the pub for an hour or two and exchange presents with BIL's kids.
Once we are back home we'll do the Christmas Eve hamper, mine contains, Christmas book, Santa Stop Here sign for the garden, Christmas biscuits, Reindeer dust, carrot, matching Christmas onsies (just for the kids), Christmas bed socks, stockings to hang on their bedroom doors, Christmas snow globe type glasses, pringles, pop for the kids and wine for us and a letter from Sanat to the kids telling them to go to sleep early cos he can't come in unless they are
Once they've been in the bath we'll watch their PNP video messages, watch something Christmassy on the telly, then bed.

normal day really, not sure what we'll do, but in the evening the boys will have a big warm bath with their Lush bathbombs (the ones with lavender in to help them sleep - yeah right), new PJ's, sprinkle reindeer food outside, drink and mince pie for santa then bed for them!

Mr CV is working as didn't keep enough leave... grr. we usually have all our friends over for brunch which I totally love. Instead the girls (first time i've ever said that!) and I might go to a panto, which I got free tickets for but might not as it isn't a patch on the main one and we're going to that later that week. Will go to a friends for lunch after and hopefully mr cv will get away early and join us. Then i'll do some christmas dinner prep before we all settle for a special christmas eve dinner (special might just mean pizza! we've still to decide...used to be steak but depends on how much I fancy cooking with baby in house and all next day's dinner to do). then we'll do baths and will give our presents (which is nightwear - Disney store) before leaving out santa's snack etc and night before Christmas book in bed. might just do pizza for dinner after all as we could eat it on sofa and watch something.
If we ever get the children settled, we'll exchange our pressies over a glass of bubbly or baileys, once we get theirs out of course. Hopefully no assembling to do this year.
LOVE Christmas eve!

Well in the morning I'll be cleaning I expect! Then at 3pm my cousins and their LOs my and mum and dad and auntie will be coming over for a christmas get together. My Sisters boyfriend will dress as Santa and give out presents to them! We'll have nibbles and drinks, they'll leave around 5 ish I would think. We are staying at my parents that night so my we'll put the boys to bed around 7pm- My mum has got them xmas pjs to open and a christmas biscuit to have with their milk and we read the book 'The Night Before Christmas' (we did this every year when I was small too!)
We'll have something to eat with my mum and dad when the boys are in bed, a few drinks and wrap their scooters as we want to take them out the boxes and wrap them upright.

Becoming a year older It is also my Birthday but no plans.
Sure we will be at home, BIL and girlfriend are staying with us so maybe watch a film and have family popping in and out. Some prep for dinner the next day and that is the extent of our plans.
All of your days seem so organised!
