*Christmas Prize Draw* My First Christmas Bear

Ok the time has come to kick off our big Christmas giveway.

I thought it was appropriate that the first gift be festive, so from the lovely Kidditoona Toys we have a My First Christmas Bear.

He is the last of his kind at Kidditoona so we would love him to go to a loving home.

All our competitions end the 7th December to allow time to try our hardest to get the prizes out before Christmas.

Good luck everyone!

    Seeing my childrens faces light up Santa has been, this year is special too, as I will be a Nanny, grand baby is due in 19 days, happy times xxx

    I love absolutely everything about Christmas! From the ‘very’ early morning shriek from my children’s bedrooms when they discover Santa has left them a stocking, to their expressions of sheer delight and wonder when they go downstairs to discover whether Santa has left them anything else…..I love putting up our Christmas trees, decorating the house, the cosy atmospheric scent of Christmas scented candles……

  • ashleigh allan

    I love christmas so so much, dont think i can pick one thing! Love seeing the kids faces on christmas day, love the whole build up – christmas parties, pantomime etc. Just love it! x

  • Sarah Boxford

    I love everything about Christmas too, making and putting up decorations, leaving out the mince pie and sherry for santa and a carrot for rudolph, my little girls delight at seeing Santa and of course the big day itself :-)

    Usually just the relaxation of it, but this year my hubby retires on New Years Eve so maybe we will be in a giddy mood and opening a few bottles

  • tracy hanley

    I love to see houses with lots of lights on , some people spend loads of money and they really look good

  • Tracy K Nixon

    I love all the preparation and buying presents – I much prefer to give than receive! As my children are all little, it is magical for them because they all still believe in father Christmas. We have loads of parties to go to during the Festive season, baking to do, places and people to visit – it is all so exciting. Christmas Day itself is fab as it is the greatest experience to see my children opening their pressies with huge smiles on their faces. I just adore Christmas!

  • nicci cowdell-murray

    i absolutely love that we all get to spend time as a family which is the thing i look forward to the most ! …i also love seeing the kids face on christmas morning when they open their pressies, even if youhavent got a lot of money christmas can still be special x @chanson2010

The kids think its great and call me Mummy Christmas!!

    Everything but mainly spending time with the family. I always have to watch everyone open their presents before I open mine, thinks it’s a throwback when 13 of us used to congregate for Xmas dinner at my grandparents (sadly no longer with us) and we had to wait for the youngest one every year to open their presents (hard when you are young yourself). Good luck to everyone.
