Its that time of the year again.. Now that the pageant has been and gone, the count down begins! This year we are doing things a little differently with the extended family and organising a Kris Kringle for the kids. Im still unsure how I feel about this.. However it sure does save time! And since that is what this blog is all about I thought I’d share! I’m sure everyone has heard of this concept before however here’s the run down… Everyone draws a name out a hat and you only buy for that person. We set a price limit for everyone and Ta da your done!! I feel like it does take away from the ‘giving’ of Christmas a little though as my children can’t choose gifts for their close cousins but I can totally see the benefits of it too… What are your thoughts?

We’ve been doing Kris Kringle with the adults for a number of years now and it has worked really well. We haven’t done it with the kids yet, but this year we are going from 3 grandchildren to 5 so it will be interesting to see how we go! Possibly Kris Kringle may be in our future but I have to say I love buying presents for all the kids and seeing them open them. I think I’d rather put a limit on the price of the gift, or make handmade gifts to give to all the kids, rather than Kris Kringle. But I am all for Kris Kringle for the adults!

Agree totally Abbie, it’s all about the kids, they are young for such a short time, let them enjoy it!
