Cameron and Caitlin don't ask for things very often. They're not the type of kids who see an advert for a toy and ask for it right off the bat which on one hand is good, because obviously I don't want spoiled kids, but on the other hand makes it a nightmare to buy for birthdays and Christmas! Which is why, when Caitlin came to me and asked if she was a really really good girl, and asked really really nicely could Santa bring her a gift, I was very excited. Whatever it was she was about to ask for I would find and buy I was determined, then I asked what it was she wanted. A My little pony dress up outfit. Can I find a suitable one? Can I hell. Its either a tutu dress in the colours of the pony with a picture on, a bodysuit with a mask (for £50!!) or somethign that looks like it should come from Ann Summers. So onto plan B. One of my friends said you can get My little pony pillow pets which I knew Caitlin would love so I thought I'd look into that. Now this is were it got disturbing. I like the My little pony program, its funny at times. But apprently theres a whole group of people called 'bronies' who seem to take it to a whole different level. Want to see what I mean? Google 'Pinkie pie pillow' and see some of the images that come up. I'm SOOOOO glad I didn't do it when the kids were around! Won't be able to look at the show the same way now! Did manage to find a nice little beanie toy and order it though so at least I wasn't traumatised for nothing!
So trying to wipe that from my mind I decorated my Christmas book form Stampin up. I decided to use it less like a planner or more like a 'what we did this year' so I could look back and see how thigns changed. I quite like the front but not sure if the gingerbread man turned out more creepy or cute? lol. I wanted to keep the cover simple and not too 3d so it will last through the years.
