Check out the earlier pics.
They also let Grace be a Junior Cast Member and help with the crowd control at the parade.
After some serious present opening, we headed off for afternoon tea at The Verandah. Grace got all hopped up on a serious sugar buzz so the only thing that would keep her occupied is some Barbie videos on my Video iPod. And yes, that is a kitchen sponge on the headphones to help them fit. Jean is the MacGyver of the household.
And Jean got to sport her new necklace and earrings from Tiffany’s. A great Christmas present from her husband.
It’s a a nice Christmas Day here in Hong Kong today. Grace got up at 7am and charged into the living room to see the presents under the Bamboo Tree. Yes, we ended up experimenting with the tree this year since all the traditional Christmas Trees were either sold out or way too expensive for the quality they had in stock. So we are done opening presents now. Grace is taking a nap. And we are getting ready to go to The Verandah for a nice afternoon tea.
After weeks of having visits from pretty mediocre Santas, The Sawin Family came across a pretty good one yesterday at Pacific Place Mall. This was the first with an American accent too (not that that is a good thing :)).
Grace had her Christmas Show at her school last. I’ll post a video of the performance soon. The funny thing was that they served Champagne and Orange Juice cocktails for the parents at 11am. I think I like this British Education system.
p.s. I would call that drink a Mimosa. I learned a new term though. They call them a Buck’s Fizz in the U.K.
Sunday was the Children’s Christmas Party at our Apartment Complex. Santa paid a visit and gave Grace a very cool gift.
Of course there was a Bouncy Castle.
Grace and Charlie had a chat during the magic show.
Grace and Dad waiting for Santa.
And finally the Big Moment.
The Holiday Season is upon us in Hong Kong. Here are some recent pics at some Holiday events.
Jean and Riley heading to the Christmas Fair in Repulse Bay.
Here’s Grace in the first Bouncy Castle we’ve found that we didn’t fear for her life.
Here’s Grace on the Conga Line at Sabrina’s Birthday Party.
Here’s Grace at the Repulse Bay Christmas Party. It was pretty funny. They had snow machines blowing “snow” in 80-degree weather.
Here’s Grace and Lucy posing.
