    I'm trying to cut back a bit this year
    DS1 is getting a ride on tractor like his dad's, an outfit to wear Xmas day and a book. I also put a swing set on layby but I've decided to keep that until
    His birthday.

    DH is getting a weather station

    I'm getting an oroton wallet I found on sale during click frenzy so I told DH to give it to me for Xmas.

    Family are getting a variety of Photo related things. So they'll get a Santa photo of DS, a family photo of the 3 of us from our wedding and a 2016 calendar of DS.

    We're all participating in secret Santa with my sisters inlaws so I've just bought a bottle of wine and some choccies to contribute to that
