Christmas 2018







Christmas... again. Time flies by so fast. Last Christmas was kind of a fail. My whole family and I were sick and missed out on some annual family traditions. This year we were determined not to get sick. Thankfully none of us caught anything, so we went about as usual with our traditions. Every year my grandma and I make cookies and do lots of things together. It is always makes for such a good memory. Suddenly Christmas Eve had arrived. My aunt came up from Phoenix to spend the night, and we stayed up late and played lots of games. Soon it was time to go to bed. Of course I couldn't sleep (like anyone could) but finally managed to fall asleep. It was 4:00 on Christmas Morning when I woke up. I fell back asleep because that is way too early to get up. I woke up again at 6:00 and my parents and my aunt were up. My grandparents came over early to open presents and eat breakfast with us. It is always so exciting. Then we clean up all the gift wrap, and my grandparents go home and come back later in the day for Christmas dinner. Just sitting at the table with all my family makes me so happy. Soon my grandparents go home and we sit on the couch and just talk. Christmas flew by this year but was still great! Remember the real reason for the season. -James
