Christmas Eve @ Store

Posted by mamabok | Canadian,My Musing,The Brat,The Other Half,Western | Thursday 24 December 2009 12:02 pm


Christmas eve only means we have to open the store for less hours.  But this year, we opened an hour later than usual… because we had to finish shopping for Christmas.  We woke up early and left the house at 9.30am.. and got all our shopping done by 11.30am – FINALLY!  timing was great.. and the brat was well-behaved.. and didn’t fussed at all during the shopping time.   We even managed to get a gift for Chloe’s Kai Mah from Swaroski at Crescent’s Jewellery.   And lunch was for Macdonald’s .. at the store of course.. but the brat wants to eat it in her Spaceship.. that she and “ang moh” made together.


After lunch, “ang moh” went out to get the last of the groceries for Christmas.. because it would be a few days before any stores will be opened.  And what did the brat do..?? homework.. learning to spell and recognized the spellings of her colors.  And yes – we survived Christmas.. without any help.. but lots of friends.. who came by the store.. either to help with playing with Chloe or looking out the store for us.   We are indeed and truly blessed this year – we got all our gifts out for our friends and customers before Christmas Eve – this year.. i slack in the online and overseas frens department – but i know they will understand.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your lovely family, MB! Wishing you all the very best for 2010!

    I love Chloe’s ‘space ship’! I think it is so cool!

    Chloe was a a good little girl that day, behaving herself during shopping and sitting down to do her school work while at the store. No wonder Santa rewarded her with so many lovely presents at Christmas and she truly deserved them all!
