A Bennetch family Krismas Eve story

1:00pm Emma gets the stomach flu, is promptly Gravol’d.

3:00pm Emma feels better enough to go visit kitties we are catsitting over the holidays.

5:00pm Emma is feeling sick again, back home we go.  Watches ‘A Very Monkey Christmas’, starring “George the monkey” (aka Curious George)

6:30pm Emma falls asleep on chair, is taken up to bed.  I forget to close kitchen door. (cue foreboding music)

7:00pm Emma’s mama and daddy start to put together her big Krismas gift: a dollhouse!  We started early because Jerry has to work a night shift tonight.

8:05pm A sleepy Emma walks downstairs and into the living room and dollhouse construction mess — hence ruining surprise

8:05 (and .15seconds) pm Mama whisks Emma away, only to have her ask when will her dollhouse be ready to play with?


Oh well, it’s probably better she gives her parents the props for the kick-ass gift, rather than Santa. Right?

(I’m sure I’ll find this story funnier next year)

  1. Aww, that’s disappointing! But it’ll be a great story to look back on some day. And it looks like she LOVES her gift. :)

  2. When I was a kid, I got a dollhouse one Christmas – I must have been around Emma’s age. My dad stayed up late to build it, and was so sad that Santa got to take all the credit, when he was the one who had lost sleep putting it all together. This is one of my mom’s favorite stories now. I still thought Santa brought it.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family and your sweet little grrl in pink monkey PJs. Man, I wish I had a pair of fleece feetie pink monkey PJs. Lucky.

  3. Oh well, even if the suspense was ruined by her unexpected appearance, it looks like she likes her dollhouse. As the kids say these days, “epic win”!
