I had an awesome break and an awesome Christmas. I didn't really do anything on Christmas Eve, all I did was watch Christmas movies until my family came back from work. The final hours of the night, my mom spend baking treats for our family get together on Christmas. She made cookies, small cheesecake bites, and peanut butter chocolate treats.
I fell asleep around midnight on the couch. For some reason, I never sleep on my own bed when Christmas comes around. When I woke up, it was only 8 AM. My brother, who was also sleeping on the couch was already awake. My 3 year old sister was sleeping in my mom and dad's bed with them. We were so anxious to wake them up. So we did.
My mom and dad were easy to wake up, it was just our sister that was stubborn. It was around 9 AM this time, and we were nudging her. We kept saying to her, "Amelia, it's Christmas!"
She responds, "No! I'm sleeping!" and turns around in the bed. It took her a few more pushes until she finally gets out of the bed. We head downstairs and open up our presents.
Of course I'm not going to be talking about all the presents I got, but the best presents we got were a Nintendo Switch with Super Smash Bros Ultimate. And I got a new laptop (unfortunately, it didn't come in on time so I got it on the following Thursday, the 27th).
Then it was time to leave for my grandmother's house. Every year, my mom gives me an ugly sweater to wear during the get together. It has always been my own little tradition. The one I was wearing this year had a sparkly Christmas tree with pompoms all over it as ornaments. My brother had on an ugly sweater that he made himself the day before. He had a maroon sweater and glued red and green pompoms to make a his own Christmas tree. He used a yellow pipe cleaner for the star on top.
We got to my grandma's house at around 2 PM. I was saying hi to my grandmother, aunts, uncle, and cousins. We put our presents under the tree in the living room. As always, I come inside to the smell of different foods being cooked. There was turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, lasagna, and so so much more.
Just spending time with my family makes me so happy. I love their company so much and I could never wish for a better one. Celebrating the holidays with them has always been something to look forward to every year. I am excited to spend some more time with them in the next time.
