First of all I´d like to wish you a very Merry Christmas.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas Day.
Let´s see how the Chocolate Rabbit Family spent this special day.
Freya woke up early. As soon as she opened her eyes she jumped out of bed. "It´s Christmas Day!, Coco. Come on!, get up!" She told her brother who was still half asleep.
There´s was no doubt. Santa had been there and so had Rudolph and they seemed to be hungry!
Definitely he stopped at The Chocolate´s and left presents for everyone.
"I´m sure this parcel is for me" Freya was tempted to open up her present but she knew it was a family tradition to wait for the rest of the family, including her grandparents and they were not coming round until dinner.
At least they were allowed to see what was in their stocking.
Creme was delighted with all the sweets she got. "Mmm, candy cane, yummy!"
Freya and Coco were very happy with their gifts too. A magic wand for Freya, water colours for Coco and sweets!
The church was crowded. Most villagers go to mass on Christmas Day.
|This church is somewhere in New Zealand. Not that I´ve been there but I saw it on the internet and I thought it coud go well in my Sylvanian village.I think it fits Sylvanian style buildings|
After mass they headed downtown. Even though all shops and business were closed the main square was bustling with activity. There was a Christmas tree in the centre and lots of villagers gathered around on Christmas morning .They enjoyed meeting some of their neighbours and friends and it was a good time to wish them Merry Christmas.
"Merry Christmas Lucy. What a lovely scarf you´re wearing" Teri greeted her friend.
"It´s my Christmas present, Teri." Lucy said proudly.
"You know Sadie? Santa left a magic wand in my stocking" Freya told her friend.
"Wow, a magic wand! I got a toy house. Will you come to play with me soon?" Sadie invited Freya.
"Merry Christmas Barker!" Frasier greeted cheerfuly.
"Merry christmas Frasier!" Nice to see you! Barker replied and they both had a chat.
Back at home, Teri was busy in the kitchen. She had to get everything ready for Christmas dinner. She started cooking early this morning.
Some time later there was a knock at the door. Patricia and Rhys were at the doorstep. They came round to join their family for dinner.
Freya and Creme opened the door to their grandparents and greeted them with joy.
"Up, up, grandpa, kiss, kiss" Creme told Rhys who took her in her arms and placed a tender kiss on her cheek.
"Merry Christmas grandma! It´s great you´re here. Can we go in and open the presents?"
Freya was all excited. She couldn´t wait any longer.
Teri welcomed her parents in law affectionately . They were just on time for dinner. Teri was about to put the fish in the oven . Freya insisted once more "Mum, can we open the presents?, please!!". " Yes, of course, meanwhile the fish will be cooked"
At last!!! Presents opening time!! the children exclaimed loudly.
What will Creme get in her parcel?
A trumpet!! Yipee!!!!!
"This is for you grandma" Freya said handing Patricia a small golden parcel.
"Thank you , my dear" Patricia accepted gratefully.
"Wow!! Just right!! That´s what I asked for!!!" Freya exclaimed when she opened her present.
Fraiser was the last to open his gift.
A camara!! Fantastic!!
They were all delighted with their presents. A new football for Coco, a toy rabbit for Freya, a white rose perfume for grandma, a book about Sylvanian plants for grandpa, a bag for Teri, a camara for Frasier and a very noisy trumpet for Creme!!
" Creme will you stop blowing your trumpet for a while? " her sister asked kindly.
Smile!! Say cheese!!
They not only exchanged gifts but also hugs and kisses. Loving one another and being together is the greatest gift.
Grandma brought the appetizers and even Creme helped with the cutlery.
After a lovely filling dinner there was still room for dessert. Teri placed on the table a traditional christmas pudding and the chocolate log Frasier prepared on Christmas Eve.
Mmm, mouthwatering!! Simply delicious!!
Anyone for coffee?
Dinner was followed by a cup of coffee and a good conversation while the children ejoyed playing with their new toys.
What about painting with your watercolours, Coco? Freya asked her brother.
"Good idea. I´ll get the paintbrushes". Coco said.
"Get some crayons for Creme , at least if she´s painting she will stop blowing that noisy trumpet for a while" Freya said raising her voice.
They are all set to start their "work of art"
What are you doing, my dear? Grandma was curious about what her grandchildren were painting.
" Creme, this is a lovely Christmas tree!" Grandma said looking at Creme´s picture.
"And what about you two? Can I have a look?" Grandma inquired.
"Just wait a minute, grandma. We´re about to finish it" Coco and Freya said.
Ta dah!! What do you think? The children showed their picture with pride.
"Ohh! It´s lovely. Well done!" Patricia said clapping her hands.
Coco and Freya asked the rest of their family to come and see what they have painted.
"Nice, really nice" they all complimented.
"Let´s take a picture" Frasier suggested willing to use his new camera but this time I offered myself to take a picture of the whole family so that he could be in the photo too.
My Chocolate Rabbit Family and I wish you all the best for Christmas and for the coming year.
Once more, thank you for reading. Sharing my Sylvanians with you makes me happy.
See you in January.
Best wishes and lots of love.
