Christmas Day - Presents With the Girls

Here are some snapshots of some of my little resin family enjoying their Christmas morning. I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed taking them. :)

Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays from my little family to yours! And wishing you a very Happy New Year!

Christmas Eve

Simona: They could only afford one donkey...

Simona: ... so Mary rode, while Joseph walked beside her the whole way.

Simona: It was a very long journey...

Simona: ... and it was only after many days and nights of travel...

Simona: ...that they finally arrived in Bethlehem...


(rumbling motorcycle noises)

(motorcycle engine sounds cut off)

Dexter Elf: Well, this is the address, Misses A.

Ahma: Thank you, Dexter.

Dexter Elf: You want me to wait while you deliver the basket?

Ahma: No, I don't think that'll be necessary. But thank you.

Ahma: You tell your Boss "thank you" for getting me here. I really appreciate it.

Dexter Elf: Ah, I'm sure Mr. Claus would've dropped you off himself if his schedule hadn't been all messed up.

Ahma: Well, it is his the busiest night of the year. *smile* Thank you, Dexter. Have a safe drive back to the North Pole.

Dexter Elf: You betcha. And you know if you need anything, you just give us a call, right? Or have Paula call us. She's got the hotline number too.

Ahma: Yes, thank you. I think that things here will be just fine, though. I just have a good feeling.

Dexter Elf: Okey dokey. (motorcycle starts) Catch ya' later, Misses A! Merry Christmas!

Ahma: Bye, Dexter! Merry Christmas to you too!

(growling motorcycle noises driving away)

Ahma: All right then, here we are. Let's go have Christmas Eve, shall we?

Simona: They needed shelter and rest, and Joseph knocked on the doors of many inns, looking for somewhere for them to stay...

(knocking on door)


Simona: Was that a knock? *laughing* Weary travelers no doubt.

Calla: Higgins! Higgins quit it! It's okay! Oh My Gosh! It could be...

Lenore: Uh, it could be... uh... a last minute door to door Christmas tree salesman! Yeah!

Louisa: Oh, good save.

Lenore: *whispering* Shut up.

Calla: Yeah... um... it's okay Higgins. Quiet. Shhhh. We'll just tell them we already have a tree, and they'll go away. Right?

Higgins: Grrrrr.

Simona: Hmmm.

Simona: While I'm dealing with the "tree salesman" you should be thinking about which present you want to open. You all get a present tonight!

Lenore: Thank you, Miss Simona!

(Simona leaves)

Louisa: Oh, good job, Calla! Ha, Lenore. You thought _I_ would be the one to blab.

Calla: Does this mean I lose Higgins? I super duper double dog sweared on Higgins!!!

Lenore: You didn't give anything away. It's okay.

Calla: Do you think I spoiled the surprise?

Simona: (from the hallway) Ahma? AHMA!! YOU'RE HERE!

Lenore: Nope, I'd say she was surprised.

Louisa: They're coming.

Lenore: Okay, everyone in best behavior. We should make Miss Simona proud in front of her friend.

Louisa: Yeah, Higgins. Shush.

Calla: Don't you shush my Higgins.

Lenore: Shush BOTH of you.

Simona: Girls... Lenore... Oh Lenore... This is my dearest friend, Ahma. Lenore, helped bring her here for Christmas. Ahma, these are my girls: Louisa, Lenore and Calla. And that's Calla's dog, Higgins.

Ahma: Hello, girls.

Girls: Hello, Miss Ahma.

Ahma: No, it's just Ahma, my dears. Just Ahma. Lenore... I have someone here who would like to see you.

Lenore: M'am?

Ahma: In the basket. Extra special delivery.

Lenore: Spot? SPOT!!!!

Lenore: Oh, Spot!!! I missed you so much! How?! OH!

Calla: Uh... Lenore. I thought you said Spot was a doggie. That's no doggie, that's a fox.

Louisa: Yeah, I think that's a fox.

Lenore: Spot is a DOGGIE. And that's final.

Simona: Girls, let Ahma sit down, please. She's had a very long trip.

Ahma: Goodness, it was a long ride to get here. And I'm all dusty. Riding on the back of a motorcycle and all!

Calla: Really? A real motorcycle?

Ahma: Yes, indeed. It was very pretty and shiny. Driven by the nicest young elf.

Louisa: May I take your hat for you, Ahma?

Ahma: Yes, my dear. Thank you. You seem so familiar to me. Do I know you from somewhere? Did your mother perhaps go to a private school?

Louisa: Oh.. no M'am, I don't think so.

Ahma: Ah well, you just have such a sweet face. That must be it. Thank you, dear.

Ahma: Lenore, Spot seems very happy to be back with you. I don't think I've seen the poor thing sleep since we started on the way here. He must be exhausted.

Lenore: I am very happy to have him back with me too, Ahma. Thank you.

Ahma: Simona said you were just about to open your Christmas Eve presents. I didn't mean to interrupt.

Lenore: I have already gotten the only present I need. Just having Spot back home. I need nothing more, and there' s nothing more I wanted.

Ahma: You brought me home too, Lenore. I cannot thank you enough for that. Merry Christmas, Lenore.

Lenore: Merry Christmas to you too, Ahma.

Super Duper Double Dog Ultra Swear

Louisa: Oh... Princess Teresa, you are so very beautiful. I would like to marry you!

Louisa: Let us ride in my carriage to the palace where we shall be wed!

Louisa: And all the villagers came to attend the wedding, walking to the beautiful palace to see the beautiful bride.

Calla: Little did they know, a giant space robot had come to warn them that this marriage would end the UNIVERSE!!!

Louisa: Calla, there are not giant space robots in love stories.

Calla: There are in the good ones.

Lenore: I think Calla can have space robots in her stories if she wants.

Calla: LENORE!!! How did it go? Did you talk to her? Did you? Will she help?

Louisa: Who?

Lenore: Yes, I got to talk to her. And she said she would help us...

Louisa: Who will help? Help with what?

Calla: Lenore went to Denver Doll Emporium to talk to Miss Paula because she knows everything about dolls and she can help us find Miss Simona's friend for Christmas because that will be the best Christmas present EVER!

Lenore: CALLA! Don't tell her!

Lenore: *sigh* She'll blab it straight to Miss Simona. And then it won't be a surprise.

Louisa: I will not! Calla, you know I won't!

Calla: She probably won't, Lenore. So... what happened? Tell me everything!

Lenore: Well, the store was very busy, but she is very nice and she made time for me.

Lenore: She listened while I told her the little bit of information that I knew and she took lots of notes.

Lenore: She said she'd make some calls, and she did.

Lenore: And she must have a lot of connections, because she called a lot of people. But eventually she got off the phone and said she had a good lead on where Miss Simona's friend was, and that if all went well, she might even be here in time for Christmas!

Calla: And Spot? What about Spot? Can she find him too?

Lenore: She did ask me about him, well she asked if there was anyone _I_ wanted her to find.

Lenore: *sigh* And I told her that it was much more important to find Miss Simona's friend. I miss Spot a lot, but I think I can find him on my own, and I don't think Miss Simona would be able to find her friend without help.

Lenore: But it'll be okay. Especially now that I've made contact with the local Fae. I'm sure I'll find him, no problem. Right?

Calla: Right.

Calla: So, you see why you can't tell Miss Simona ANYTHING, Louisa. I mean ANYTHING AT ALL!

Louisa: This is a GREAT secret! Oh, she'll be so surprised! I promise I won't tell Miss Simona a thing. Not a single solitary thing.

Miss Simona: Won't tell me a thing about what?

Girls: GAH! Nothing....

Miss Simona: *laughing* You girls. Aren't you just the most innocent looking group? Well, this close to Christmas, I imagine you DO have some secrets. As do I. *smile* I just came it to tell you dinner is nearly ready. So you should start getting ready to come down.

Girls: Yes, Miss Simona.

Calla: Phew! That was close!

Lenore: Too close. There's only one thing to be done for it.

Calla: Hu?

Lenore: Super duper double dog ultra swear.

Calla and Louisa: OH!

Lenore: Swear on whatever is most important to you, swear that you won't tell.

Lenore: I super duper double dog ultra swear on all my hope of finding Spot that I will not tell.

Calla: I super duper double dog ultra swear on Higgins that I will not tell.

Louisa: I super duper double dog ultra swear on Susie, my ragdoll, that I will not tell.

Higgins: Woof!
