During Christmas break I spent most of my time with family and friends, and got lots of presents. The Tuesday that we got out for break we had a basketball game home against Western Reserve and we won. That night Emma and Liz stayed the night and was there all day to see us because they said “they had nothing better to do”, and they just wanted to visit. On Christmas Eve I spent some time with my mom and her boyfriend then later that night I went to my dad’s. I stayed at my dad’s for the night, so when we all woke up we could open our presents there with them and my step- mom’s brother and his girlfriend. Then we all took turns guessing whether or not our aunt and uncle were going to come up from Texas to visit for Christmas.
On Christmas day, after we all woke up and opened presents we ate our breakfast, so that my brother and I could go to our grandma’s to open presents and eat lunch. After we ate lunch my brother and I had to go back to our dad’s house so we could have Christmas with his side of the family. We ate supper opened presents then spent some time with our aunt and uncle that that we figured would came up from Texas to visit for Christmas, after that we had to go back to our mom’s house to open presents with her. My brother and I tried to convince our mom to let us stay longer at our dad’s house so that we could visit with our aunt and uncle a little bit longer.
When we opened presents at our dad’s house I got a new pair of jeans, a sweater, North Face jacket, perfume, lotion, and a card that said I was going to get my NBHA membership at the first show, so that I could run in the circuit, and I got a new pair of boots.. When I opened presents at my grandma’s house I got a pair of American Eagle jeans, a shirt, t.v., another pair of boots, gift card for Dick’s Sporting Goods, Visa gift card, and money. When I went back to my dad’s to open presents with his side of the family I got 3 shirts, a sweatshirt, a lot of candy, and money. Then I went to my mom’s to open presents, and there I got a basketball, a North Face sweatshirt, a Nike sweatshirt, basketball keychain, a pair of pajama pants, a scarf to wear with nice clothes, and a picture frame to put a picture of me and my horse in. Then the day after Christmas my mom’s boyfriend was leaving to go to Minnesota to see his grandpa because he wasn’t doing very good, he was gone for a whole week, but was back in time for my mom’s birthday which is January 1st. A couple days after my mom’s boyfriend left my mom, my brother, my aunt, my grandma, and I all went out to spend our Christmas and my birthday money. We went out for lunch also, but we went before we did our shopping. We went to the Mall, Dicks Sporting Goods to spend our gift cards, and to Kohls, so that my aunt could take back her sweatpants she got from there because they were too small.
