|Christmas in Texas|
|Christmas was soo fun! We left on the 23rd, the Saturday before Christmas and packed up and left in dad's truck. I was so excited that whenever we stopped, I shouted, "Yea, Memere". Mom thought it was funny when it happened at 9:30 in the morning, but I was so excited, I shouted it everytime we stopped! Mrs. Susie Youngson let us borrow Jeffery and Charlie's portable DVD|
|player. I thought it was amazing! Thanks Susie! My mom and dad are indebted to you!
We got to Houston and saw Uncle Sam (Taylor) and Memere and Papi, when we arrived. I was so tired, but so excited to see everyone! Memere and Papi took me and mom to "bucks" almost every morning! Thanks! I love "Bucks", but maybe not as much as mom!
Keeping with tradition, we went to church on Christmas Eve at St Martha's. Then we all went to Chinese - its one of dad's traditions and we like it a lot! Then, off to bed so that Santa could come. The next morning, the living room was filled with presents! I was so excited. We all took turns, from youngest to oldest, unwrapping the Santa Claus gifts. Uncle Sam no longer gets to go first - sorry Sam! After unwrapping Santa gifts, we paused for breakfast - egg and sausage casserole, grapefruit and sticky rolls. YUM! We were all hungry after unwrapping! We then unwrapped presents from the family, and then following that, Mom, Dad and I unwrapped Ellis presents! So fun!
