As my friends will tell you, I am not a very organised person. So I have no idea why I am even doing this. But I wanted to do an Advent Calendar for the boys. In my head, there were cute little gifts, baubles, beautifully wrapped and numbered. Pinterest worthy stuff! But then reality hit and it became a brown packaging box of Christmas crafts. THEN reality's mother showed up and now it is whatever comes to mind and Christmas related. Mostly. But this botched calendar actually works for me! And it has quite fun. I have enjoyed doing these little activities with the boys every day.
So far we have had crafts, a visit to Santa, toy donations to charity, decorating a gingerbread house and Christmas window gels ... phew and that is just the first week! I have no idea what or how I am going to do the rest of the days but I am sure it will be fun and it will be on Instagram. So come along and check out (if we even finish this crazy calendar) what we get up to @2littlefaces!
Happy Christmas everyone!!!

This year for Harvey's 4th birthday (Four! I still can't believe my little face is four!!!!!) we went for a Lego theme. Well, a very subtle Lego theme. Usually, we would have the party on the 31st October. But the Rugby World Cup final was on this day (Yay All Blacks!). So we had a, what I like to call a private Halloween. A few neighbours were kind enough to let a bunch of rowdy kids knock on their doors, on a Sunday afternoon, and raid them of all their sweets.

We were asked by the lovely people at Wayfair to write a Christmas crafty post and we decided to make some DIY Christmas wrapping and Santa hand print cards. It's a fun and easy activity for kids and makes giving a little bit more special—plus the cards make a great keepsake.

It's Christmas in only a matter of weeks!!! And if you are like me, then you haven't even thought of starting your Christmas shopping! So I thought I would put a list of cool gift ideas that the boys truly love in hope it might give you some inspiration. I personally love these gift ideas as they are not only fun but they are educational.

This year, for Harvey's little friends, I put together kits as birthday gifts. Every kid loves a good party/goody bag, right? So why not make the ultimate party bag. Totally personalised for each little birthday boy/girl.

Harvey's birthday falls on Halloween. He didn't have a first birthday party because I was suffering from morning sickness with Seb. But for Harvey's second birthday we had a joint Cars, Trains and Planes party with his little NCT bro.
And for Harvey's 3rd birthday we had a Halloween Monsters Party. We had it at the house so we could go trick or treating. It was fun. There were cupcakes, food for the kids, pizza and booze for the adults. A perfect night for everyone.
