since the boys have been born they've had roughly about 1000-1500 each for birthdays then again at xmas, but this year as they have so much and saving to go away they've had about 50 each or so, they've got 2 toys each, pair of pj's and a couple of pairs of socks

i've gone to extremes every year hun, it's ridiculous, the boys have more clothes and toys than i have places to put them, it's beyond a joke.

so this year i've restricted myself (we've had to really) and the boys pressies are sorted and out the way, i'd sooner them now have an amazing 2 weeks in florida and love every minute of it than 1 day of ripping paper and boxes to pieces x
