Merry CHRISTmas!

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I did! :) I got about 5 CDs, a bunch of movies, some nice clothes, 2 books by my favorite author, and some money. Also, we do some special traditions every Christmas I'd like to tell ya'll about.

We always do something we call 'Pepperoni Blessings'. We usually order pizza and have it delivered to the house. Then we'll give the pizza man a gift and a tip. This year we did it a little different and went to Wendy's. There's this reallly nice hostess there that's super nice! So we gave her a gift and a gift card. Her co-workers were all crowded around her and her boss praised her like big time! It was a very neat experience!

On Christmas Eve we'll always go to my Grandparent's house and have our Christmas with them. We have snacks and open presents and play games! Very fun!

Then Christmas morning, the BIG day ;), we'll get up and see if Santa came! Of course, he always has! ;) lol We'll look in our stockings first, then we sing Happy Birthday to Jesus, and then open our gifts. After all the presents are opened and wrapping paper has littered the living room floor, Mom will put her apron on and cook a huge delicious brunch! My grandparent's, uncle, aunt, and 2 baby cousins will come to our house and eat.

Christmas night is special. We have a birthday party for Jesus. Each one of us have a special gift for Jesus. It's something that we either promise to start doing or promise to give up. And we have to stick with it. This year Momma had us all pick out what we thought was our spiritual gift and find out a way to give it back to Jesus. And that's how we end Christmas Day.

The next morning though we go on a big shopping spree! A chance for us to spend our Christmas money and gift cards. We usually, every year, "shop 'til we drop"! lol

So...all together I had a wonderful CHRISTmas! God bless!

Happy Late Thanksgiving & Black Friday

Hope everyone's Thanksgiving was awesome! Mine was! :) We had ours at my aunt and uncle's house this year. Oh my word, there was so much food! I ate so much that if I even thought about food afterwards, I felt sick to my stomach. lol It was all delicious though!

After we went home we put up our Christmas tree. It's something we do every Thanksgiving. This year we actually had a real live tree! We haven't had one since I was a baby and I don't remember it so it was quite exciting going to pick it out and then putting it up. It was also my turn to put the star on top (we take turns every year). It was my last time doing it as a 4 years I'll be 19 years old. Hard to imagine!

The day after Thanksgiving was Black Friday. It was my first time ever going shopping on the busiest shopping day of the year! I woke up at 4 AM and we hurried out of the house to the superly packed Walmart! lol It was so much fun! We got a lot of good deals and there's just something about shopping so early in the morning in the freezing cold that's exciting and thrilling...I don't know. ;)
