Today’s Fun Monday is hosted by Sayresmiles and here is her assignment.

What was the most touching, wonderful part of Christmas for you this year?
I think little kids make Christmas more fun, Rehema woke up so early and she could not wait to open her gifts. She dressed up in record time. She was so so excited. Henry of course had no idea what was happening but he seemed happy with his gift.
We got her one of those kid’s cameras among other things, she took pictures the whole day until the batteries were dead.
It was really nice to spend a quiet Christmas with my husband and kids.
What was the craziest, stupidest, funniest part this year? This year, I decided that I am not going to cook any. Our CEO gave every employee (the 4000 of us) a gift card to many of the local restaurants downtown so we decided after Church to go eat in one of the restaurants. We got there and voila, all the restaurants downtown were closed. I am not sure why I thought at least one of them would be open (surely, even Walmart was closed). So, we drove around looking for a restaurant and finally we found this Chinese restaurant open and had a good meal.
Head over to Sayre Smiles and read other Christmas stories. I hope you had a really good Christmas.

  1. I LOVE that picture of your daughter with tape on her belly! How cute! Glad you had a wonderful Christmas. Why, do you suppose, are Chinese restaurants the only ones open on Christmas Day? Strange!


  2. The Chinese restaurant reminded me of “A Christmas Story” – at least the rest of your holiday wasn’t as chaotic as the movie’s!

    Kids and cameras are wonderful together. It gives you a little peek into how they see the world. I gave one to Z this year and he’s taken some great pictures (and some not so great ones).


  3. My 4 yr old grandaughter also got a camera from her Aunt this year,looks just like Rehema’s, she loved it also. Yep, you can always rely on Chinese for Christmas dinner. Gald you had a great Christmas.


  4. Hi Grace,
    My granddaughter, who will be four in February, received a camera for Christmas too. Children of today do live in a different world from yesteryear, but access to a camera seems to be one of the good things.

    We have hunted for restaurants on Christmas day too. The open restaurants can be very interesting places.

    The pictures of your children are precious. Happy New Year to your family.


  5. You could have ended up with peanut butter and jelly —
    I know that some restaurants around here are open – with reservations only — on Christmas day.

    I’d hate to work on Christmas.

    You’ll have to post some of her photos — I would like to see what her child-thought process was doing with her choices. ha ha


  6. Think we all have had the experience of looking for an open restaurant on Christmas Day. Thank goodness the Chinese places are often open. Your little budding photographer is very cute. And love the look of concentration on the little guy’s face as he deals with his present.

    All the best in ’09 to you and yours, Grace.


  7. My Jewish relatives all go out for Chinese food on Christmas Day since they are usually the only restaurants open. At least there were no kitchen disasters!
