What I Got For Christmas

Hey. Okay, first, I should tell you, if you don’t like listening to other people’s gifts that they received, then stop reading, because I am going to go through literally everything that I got. I have my present pile (like that alliteration? 🙂 ) right next to me, ready to go through it and tell you everything I got. Well, here we go.

Christmas Eve Presents

I got presents from my aunt, my grandpa, and my great aunt and uncle on Christmas Eve. I got a beautiful bracelet from my grandpa. Maybe I’ll post a picture of it later. From my aunt, I received a Christmas ornament, as well as some make-up stuff, hair stuff, and nail stuff. From my great aunt and uncle, I received $20, plus a bunch of candy! Christmas Eve was fun.

Christmas Day Presents

Get comfy, because this is a long list. Okay, I’ll start with the stuff from my parents and Santa. I got a lot of shirts, which I was in desperate need of. I of course got a stocking full of candy and deodorant and blistex and a sock monkey and an iTunes gift card, along with other stuff. Oh, and Uncle put $50 in a card in my stocking. Now, back to the presents that were waiting under the tree. I got Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 for the PS3, another sock monkey, sock monkey slippers, Taken 2, Taylor Swift’s debut album, Pokemon X, Salt, a Webkinz (don’t know why, but I’m not complaining- I get a part of my childhood back!), as well as Sim City for the computer. I also got a blanket, a snowboard, an ornament, a calender, lotion, a snuggie, Zelda: A Link Between Worlds for the 3DS, gloves, a scarf, a hat, and a coffee cup with a $10 Dunkin Donuts gift card in it. I believe that’s the majority of it. Oh yeah, and my laptop that I’m using right now! Later, I received a $100 bill from my grandparents.

Yeah, it was a pretty awesome Christmas. How was yours? And I’m still keeping the posting streak! This is the 10th day, I believe? Alright, that’s it for now. Bye!

It’s Christmas Eve!

 Hey! As you probably have realized, it’s Christmas Eve! And, it’s just starting to sink in for me. Just barely. I just wrapped a shit-ton of presents, but I like wrapping, so it was fun. I enjoyed it. Later, we are going to 4 o’clock mass, which is the first Christmas mass that I remember without Father Peter, but it’s also Father Shemek’s first Christmas mass with us. After mass, we’re going to go to my grandpa’s house to meet up with my aunt and her boyfriend, Bill, and his son, Neil, my cousin, Zach, where we exchange gifts with them. Then, at around 8 or 9, we go home and sleep. Well, at least us kids do. My parents and my Uncle (he stays over every Christmas Eve night) stay up late. Okay, I think that’s it for now. Time to go work on my Dos quarter project (history, in case you forgot). Oh, and I STILL kept the posting streak. Look at that! Alright, that’s really it. Bye!

 P.S. Maybe tomorrow I’ll post a picture of our tree?

Where Are You Burban?!

Hey. Burban is missing. We can’t find her anywhere. She’s been AWOL since around 3 in the afternoon (I think that’s when I saw her last). It was around when Gabby left. Which scares me, cuz it makes me wonder if she somehow got past me and out the door, even though I was watching for her. I’m crying. I’m so scared. What if she’s hurt? What if she’s dead?

Hey again! The reason I say that is because that first part was written about a half hour ago. I stopped the post and went to find Burban. Following advice from my Uncle’s mom (not my grandma, since he’s not my blood uncle, but he’s my uncle in all the other ways), I looked in Amanda and AJ’s closet (they share a room), and after pushing aside all of the crap that was in a huge pile on the closet floor, found Burban! I was so relieved! I pulled her out and into my arms for a ginormous bear hug, which, surprisingly, she stayed calm and still for (she normally stays still for hugs from me and my mom, no one else, but I hugged her very, very tightly). I am so happy right now, you don’t even know. Phew. My mind was going to dark places, like thinking she wasn’t going to be here for Christmas and stuff like that. But it’s all better now. Thank you, God! Alright, I guess that’s it. Oh, wait. I kept my posting streak. Again! This is the seventh day, I believe. Okay, that’s really it. Bye!

Christmas Shopping Is Done!!

Hey! Thanks to Amazon and my Dad’s credit card (for the ordering- I’m paying for the stuff myself…), my Christmas shopping is D-O-N-E done! Yay! Now I can focus on other, “fun” things, like waiting for Christmas. Have I ever mentioned that I hate patience? WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD! If you are Mrs. Arruda, Mom, Dad, Ro, Mina, AJ, Uncle, Gabby, Rebecca, or Zach, do not, I repeat, do NOT read any further. Skip the rest of this post until after Christmas, since I will be in the middle of telling everyone what your gifts are. So, here we go. For Mrs. Arruda, we require a bit of a backstory. She is our school’s secretary, and she does, like, EVERYTHING! Well, her dad died last month, a couple weeks before Thanksgiving. When I went to his wake, I gave her a box. In it was a note (among two other things that I might say in another post). It said not to worry about her dad, because I knew he was in Heaven, since I saw two rainbows, one on each side of the sun, the day he died (I explained in the note how I read somewhere how everytime someone dies, God sends a rainbow to carry them to Heaven). Ever since then, she has been seeing rainbows everywhere. So, for Christmas, to get her into the Christmas spirit (she hasn’t been feeling it, understandably), I decided to give her a gift. It is a Kikkerland Window-Mount Solar-Powered Heart Rainbow Maker. Isn’t that a great idea?! I thought so. I just hope it isn’t late, since it is supposed to be in on Thursday, and Friday is the last school day of the year. Anyway, for Mom, I got a nice clear glass cross. For Dad, a Steelers fan, I got a Terrible Towel. For Ro (Roman), my brother, I got another Terrible Towel, plus a mini Statue Of Liberty. For Mina (Amanda), my sister, an I ❤ NY coin purse, a mini NY bell, and a mini Statue Of Liberty. For AJ, my brother, a Santa-In-The-Box, a mini NY bell, and a mini Statue Of Liberty. For Uncle, a serious Trekkie (like me 🙂 ), a replica Starfleet Command division badge. For Gabby, one of my best friends, a creeper (Minecraft) pendant necklace. For Rebecca, my other best friend and a lover of Lord Of The Rings, an action figure set with Bilbo, Thorin, Dwalin, Kili, and Fili. And for Zach, my cousin, a Patriots licence plate frame. Aren’t those great ideas?! Wow, this was a long post. I will end it here. Bye!
