A Merry Christmas for our Princess

Andrea Lizette enjoyed much this Christmas Season. She’s been waiting for this special holiday and too excited to write Santa Claus for the presents that she want to receive. For this year we decided not to have the Santa appearance in the house since the daddy almost blew his cover of being the Santa last year so I guess she’ll be contented with our ready made explanation why Santa did not came this Christmas Eve.  From afternoon of 24th to 7 pm in the evening she was busy playing with the kids of our friends who were here in our abode for a small party then she dozed off  after that. We have to go  down for another party with the neighbors so her daddy carried her downstairs and when she opened her eyes she was asking where is Santa. And daddy explained to her that Santa Claus came but she was sleeping so he just left his presents for her. She was disappointed since she really want to personally hand her letter to Santa and of course she want to talk to him. She insisted of keeping her letter with her rather than putting it in her christmas huge red sock. She enjoyed a short time play and opening of gifts with her friends in the compound and then we had to leave to another party in her Dad Yam and Mom May’s place. We stayed there until  2 in the morning and they stayed until 4 am. She opened some of her gifts specially the one’s that she thinks that came from Santa Claus.She received lots of gifts from all of us. We asked her what she want for Christmas and we ordered it in Amazon  and we named each gift pretending that it came from her loving grandparents and aunts and uncles in the Philippines. She had a blast opening gifts with her sweet brother Sean and daddy. Indeed Christmas is about giving and receiving and the true spirit of Christmas of understanding why as Christians we celebrate it the importance of the birth of Jesus Christ though she did not fully comprehend why the birth of Papa Jesus, our saviour but at least it’s a good start.

The Play Ground:Villagio Mall

Andrea and Sean love to go to Villagio mall.  Dad N came home but he had to go to another place to talk to his friend so he dropped us off in Villagio mall. Sean dozed off while we were in the car so Ate Andrea  should be the responsible Ate carrying all the other stuffs until we reach the Moonsoon Accessorize Shop.

After buying the “wants” for a nearly 4 year old kiddo from this shop for half of the items prices we headed to the fast food area. They told me that they want to buy from the Holly Wood Stall some brownies and muffins for their dessert and the usual order of chicken wings from KFC and the kiddie meal which consists of nuggets, fries and juice from McDonald’s.

And while we waited for Dad N to come and fetch us Andrea and Sean played, run to and fro and goofed around.

Here are some of their pics:

Elina or Cinderella?

 Princess is torn on who she wants to be during her costume party in her 4th birthday. I told her to decide so that we can find the costume and I’m not going to let her have both, it should be only one. So one day she would say, “Mommy, I want to have a blue beautiful gown like Cinderella”. But then the following day there would be a change in her plans, she would say, “Oh, I want to be like Elina, pink wings and rainbow colored nice fairy dress!”

And yesterday while we were in Landmark Mall we saw in Marks and Spencer a beautiful Cinderella gown and it’s reversable so I asked her if she wants the gown and excitedly she said yes, she wants it. So, there now it’s settled. Her fourth birthday party would be a disney princess themed party. It’s just a simple party with all her friends in costumes and at least we settled the theme and the rest would be taken cared of by momsy.

Christmas Day of our Princess!


Princess was so happy with all her gifts from Mom, Dad, Sean, Uncle, Mama Sie, Papa San, Mama Baby and Papa Jose. She received a gift from her neighbor friends–Angela and Angeli.
Princess went to some of her Ninong and Ninangs. It was her first time to go around her Godparents and she was so happy to kiss and hug them and receive her gifts. She played with ate Janah while she was in her Ninay Jinky’s house then after more than an hour we went up to her Ninay Yang. Princess enjoyed playing with ate Yani and she had a beautiful butterfly tattoo in her face. We greeted another friend, Tita Nova and Ninong Obin (they are also living in the same building) and wished that we had ample time because Jeb was asking li’l Sean to play with him.Good that her Ninangs were staying in one building and as promised we went to her Ninay Marichris. She played again with her friends; Jerome, Jeroen, Michael, Angel and Marky.

And it was already late, 9pm and Princess was asking her daddy if we can go to big Anjela’s house. So we agreed that it would be the last house that we should go because it was already late but still she’s telling daddy N that we should go to her Mom May’s house after ate Jelay’s.

So there, we arrived at home past 11 pm and still they got the energy to open their gifts and play for awhile then all was so exhausted that we slept almost all day long the following day.

She gave gifts also to some of her friends and neighbors and was really, really happy when Santa Claus came.

It’s so nice to be a kid on Christmas …

The Pink Poodle

Six months ago, we went to City Lifestyle at City Center and Princess saw this cute pink poodle bag and asked if she can have this but I told her no, she insisted, cried and hugged this stuff toy until we reached the cashier but still I put it aside and did not pay for it. She was sad for a moment then back to her old self again–a bubbly kiddo. I told her to wait for the sale season because that time there was no discount.

And last week as I went to Home Center to buy the Christmas gifts, I saw it again with a 50% discount. It was the last piece on the shelf and I bought it for my Munchkin and it has a company, another pink poodle but this is not another bag but a pencil case. She was soundly sleeping in her stroller the time that I bought these but she nearly jumped with joy when she saw these 2 pink poodles when we reached home. See, honey munchkin patience is really a good virtue. Now, you got two of them.




Stickers and Beads

Princess loves to collect and play with stickers (Disney Princesses and others) and got this new fancy on beads. We went to Dream Shopping Store to buy more Christmas decor for our Christmas tree and she asked for these stickers too. This is actually a best buy, for Qr. 2.50 you’ll get more than 400 Disney Stickers and there’s also another sticker pad which contains more than 700 tiny stickers only for Qr. 300 riyals. Well, as for Princess she’s pretty happy with all of her loot! And a box of tiny beads in 5 different colors cost only Qr. 2.75 riyals.
