Merry Christmas !

I bought an island Pine last December and it has survived yet another christmas this year ! Ruhi & Rayyan had a mini wrestling match to decide who would hang up the trinkets and after the tree was done Rayyan solemnly folded his hands in front of the 'bhagwan ji' tree. God save these terribly terribly mixed up kids.

Ruhi wrote a letter to Santa asking for a 'toy house from the play pen in the Mall, a 'real' camera and a 'real' phone and a chocolate.."

Santa left her a Barbie doll with a helmet on a natty bycycle and the chocolate. I told her that her wish list was quite out of Santa's budget and she conceded. Rayyan got a miserly plastic auto rickshaw and he was elated. Krti didi their maid got a pair of shoes which she turned up her nose at. LOL

Ruhi still believes in Santa Claus ! She woke up past midnight almost as I was putting her gift on her pillow, blinked vaguely for a couple of minutes muttering some Santa gibberish & then collapsed into sleep again. In the morning she inspected the house and told me the exact places Santa had visited. She could tell by the trail of Santa's perfume ! I am keeping my fingers crossed. I guess there may be another year to go before the bubble breaks ! :)))

Its such a simple yet touching post...that she is smelling out Santa is wonderful but whats best is the folding hands infront of Bhagwan ji tree.

Wish you all a wonderful christmas spirit filled year...

Your children look like they are having the best christmas! With the pretty tree and the toys, I am not surprised.

I send you the very best for the coming New Year.

Rayyan's praying to bhagwan ji tree reminded me of some ladies in Hyderabad at St. Mary's who did before Jesus what they do before their favourite deities: touching their cheeks alternatively :)
God is one, I guess.

Happy New Year to you and your family.

Best wishes, Anjali
