Do you know why this Christmas was my best Christmas ever? I had two Christmases, one with my family and one with my grandpa at my home.On Christmas I was so excited. I woke up my dad and mom first thing in the morning. We were allowed to open up our stockings first. They were on the railing upstairs and our tree was downstairs. My brother, my sister and I ripped open our stocking presents as if we were paper shredders. In a few minutes, it looked like our table was made of wrapping paper because the wrapping paper was all over the place!
After, we rushed downstairs and I was surprised by how many presents there were. My mouth fell open. Here are some of my presents. I got some Lego Power Miners, a computer game called Spore, some shirts, a robe, the game Stratego, two books in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, and some people for the board game Heroscape.
When my grandpa came over on New Year’s Eve day he brought more presents. I like him coming because he brings us lots of stuff and I like to spend time with him. Usually we go to his place but my auntie was in a hockey tournament near us. She is15 years old. After my grandpa and his family got to our house, we first opened our birthday gifts because he didn’t send my brother and sister’s when they had their birthdays in October and mine was coming up soon. Then, we opened our Christmas gifts. I got a magnifying glass, bug glasses, another DS game that I already have, a hockey bag (but he forgot it at home and had to send it up later). After we opened all of our gifts it was only 3 hours away from the next year!
I played some Wii and ate snacks until it was almost 12:00 am. When we’re at my grandpa’s, at midnight we’re allowed to bang pots and pans outside on his front yard. He lets us make lots of noise because he doesn’t like his neighbours. Because we were celebrating New Years at our house my mom let us do this as well, but we didn’t do it too much because we like our neighbours. I got to stay up up until 2:30am that night!
I had the best Christmas and a fun New Year! How was yours?
