Twas the night before Christmas....

Okay okay it was the night before Christmas and we were supposed to go to church to remember the real reason why there is a Christmas to celebrate!! At first the little one was cranky from lack of sleep...then it started to rain and we were not sure if we'd actually make it to church. I really wanted to go that night because it was another tradition but having a two year old can sure change things.

In fact we were pretty beat from the previous night too. However, becaue we got invited to a couple of parties during our party we had to go get more gifts. So a quick dash to MidValley it was! We were supposed to jst get a few items but ended up doing some shopping for wifey...apart from the presents! By the time we finished it was close to four in the afternoon! Regardless we still wanted to go for the mass and was glad that the little ones mood cleared and we were able to go.

The mass was surprisingly quick as Christmas masses go (try saying that fast a few times LOL) and finished by 11 pm. So we rushed home to prepare supper. My brother and his family would usually come over to our place to exchange presents after supper and hot mugs of cocoa. Ad on que a little after 12 they came over...also present was a surprise visitor from the North Pole! Yup Santa had come over again (but he did look a little taller than the Santa who was over yesterday LOL) to drop off a little pressie for the little one! She was so happy to see Santa with her present but as usual was too shy to shake his hand!! I don't know where I was but missed the whole episode and was not able to get a picture of me with Santa! Ho Ho Ho

Anyway after Santa left we had our supper and cocoa and then proceeded to open our presents. The little one did want me to assemble the toy Santa had left her but it was getting late and she was getting tired. She didn't even make it through all her presents before she wanted to be hauled off to bed. Yes, she was that tired!!

In the morning the first thing I did was assemble her new toy. It took a little fixining but I managed to get it all done myself (proud father talking) We'll since Santa had left her such a nice toy the least I could do was assemble it, right! ? ho ho ho As I was about to finish the little one woke up and wanted to play with it immediately....in our haste we didn't take any pictures of he first slide down LOL

I only caught a quick picture just now throught the gate and manaed to get the rear of the slide!

Oh and I almost forgot I finally opened my little pressie from the Genie Princess and it was one of my best gifts!! Thanks GP!

Look what the postie did to the beautiful gold box my pressie came in, fortunately the contents were not harmed!

Shemah said...

Hi Adrian!

Just dropping by to wish u and your lovely family, Happy New Year. May this year you will continue to be blessed with all the best things in life. :D

Looks like you had a wonderful Christmas. My 3 year old son is sitting with me and doing my rounds of bloghopping with me and the moment he saw what your lil girl had, he says, Mommy I want that tomorrow! Got time line some more. tsk tsk tsk.. At least it's not today! LOL!

But unlike ur lil girl, he's not shy when it comes to Santa. He's terrified. For reasons unknown to me. So if he is giving me a hard time, I just pick up my phone and say I'm gonna call Santa. Then he'll immediately be a good little boy. LOL! It cracks everyone up!

Anyways, I think I'm overstaying my welcome here.. the comment is longer than the post i think. hahaha..

Again, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Cheers!

Shemah

Hugs
Judy

Adrian said...

Happy New Year Shemah...love your comment!! :):)

I too sometimes have to blog with my daughter on my lap...and it's not easy but it's fun LOL Sometimes she wants to play her games too so I'll split the screen and sneak a comment in between! LOL

Poor guy is terrified of Santa eh...well that's not uncommon...my daughter will not get too close to him but she won't cry or anything... yet LOL At least you managed to put his fear of Santa to good use LOL

You little guy at least gave you a dy to get it! My daughter now wants things right there and then LOL And I don't like to give in either so have to distract her! hehe Unfortunately she also is that way with food and milk and that you can't say no to! :)

Cheers Shemah and I hope you have a blessed New Year! :)

Adrian said...

Judy!! Happy new year again! Yes Christmas was wonderful! I can't wait for this year LOL

Wife even asked to start planning the menu early so that we'll be well prepared when the time comes LOL The problem is I don't cook often enough and if we want everything to taste good we need to practice! LOL
