The Christmas Shop

Granny said for a special treat I could go to the Christmas shop with her.
It is in Adelaide. South Australia ,on Goodwood Rd.
We thought we were about to have the time of our lives. We did have a lovely time, with Thousands and thousands of decorations. BIG ones small  ones and any size in between.
There were so many people in the store (that shows how good it was) that is was very hard to get a photo.
The manager said we could, but there were too many people, so we only have a few to show you.
Here I am sitting under a huge tree full to the brim with decorations.

Then granny wanted to get a picture of the post box to the north pole, so I had to tell the people to stop coming around the corner until Granny had clicked the camera. Can you see me?
Wow! we found this big Polar Bear with blue lights on him. I wanted a ride but Granny said it wasn't for riding on. What a party pooper. drats.
We saw so many beautiful things, it was hard to remember it all. I just LOVE Christmas.
When we got outside, we thought we would take a photo of their window, like some clever people do.
Well, Granny is not so clever, and she has got reflections in it, so it doesn't look so good.

I was walking back to the car, and saw some more Christmas things, I felt so tired and ruffed up by all the people and trying to see, because I'm not very tall. My scarf was falling off, and I didn't know if I was going backwards or forwards.
We were so tired when we got home, that Granny got all the Christmas books out, and said I could read which ever one I wanted. Look at the big pile.
My favourite is "Santa visits Australia," because that is where I live. It tells me in the book, he comes to Australia, so I'm getting excited. Poor Santa has a thick red suit on ,because it is cold where he comes from.
Well in Australia, it is our Summer and it gets quite hot. I think I might leave out a pair of shorts for him.

Rudolf makes friend with our kangaroo's and poor old Santa has to shake the sand out of his boots when he is in the dessert.

 OK! I have found a nice short story I will read to the rug rats tonight.
Granny's favourite is "Rick Rutherford's Country Christmas" it is all about how he decorates his home at Christmas time.

I forgot to tell you all, because I didn't want to boast... hm hm,  but I had a special photographer come to gallery one to take my photo. Have a look at that lens. I hope my hair is fine and my nose is polished,
I did feel quite important.

Time for a good snack of peanut butter and honey on toast.
I need to get all those rug rats into bed to read a story.

I may be one day late next week because I will have too fat a tummy after Christmas lunch.
See you all next week.

  1. Hi Wilbur,

    Wow, you had quite an amazing day, and all those "bee-u-tee-ful" ornies, and that BIG Christmas tree.

    Thank you for sharing your day.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and Granny.


  2. Oh dear, getting trampled in the Christmas shop doesn't sound like much fun :o( we hope you've shaken it all off now and enjoyed your books :o) LT has played us The Golden Kangaroo by John Williamson, so we know about Christmas in Australia (plus the koala dressed as a reindeer has let us in on a few secrets too) It's fun seeing Christmas around the world, although we're waiting kind of impatiently to see our tree at LT's mum and dad's...

  3. Wilbur, pop over to my blog so you can teach the rug rats how to make paper stars this week....

  4. Hi Wilbur,
    It looks like you've had another adventure and this time it's our kind of place. The Christmas Shop looks like a wonderful place and with all of the neat things they have there, no wonder you got all worn out. We have a lot of Christmas books too and also many Christmas movies. We don't have "Santa Visits Australia" but we're adding it to our wish list. We're helping out in the kitchen today so we've got to go and have breakfast so we can start mixing up cookie dough. Have a wonderful week and enjoy the warm weather.
