Our Christmas Eve

We had a late dinner at a nearby restaurant last night as we waited for my elder brother and sil to arrive from Singapore. After dinner and bath time, we put on some Christmas songs on the CD player and switched on the Golden lighting to create a Christmassy mood. Baby was in a perky mood. She was dancing and prancing and clapping her hands away gleefully. My 2 older girls had been waiting the whole day for the gifts opening moment. Even Baby waited anxiously... the moment she stepped into the house after dinner, she ran to the table where my mum placed the gifts and said "open"!

There was only a tiny Christmas tree. My mum did not buy a larger Christmas tree as we were never in Ipoh during Christmas all these years. This is the first time my parents celebrate Christmas with their grand daughters.

My girls searching for their pressies.

Rascal #2 ripping off the gift wrapper. She volunteered to open Baby's pressie.

Baby was so, so excited and happy when she saw her pressie, which was a white unicorn that can move and talk. My sil bought it for her from Singapore. The beaming look on Baby's face was priceless. Last Christmas, she was still a sickly girl with constant UTIs. This Christmas, God has given her the best gift ever, a gift of good health. Thank you Lord for this gift.

I'd like to wish all my readers a very merry Christmas and a blessed New Year.

How did you spend your Christmas Eve and Christmas?
