My Christams story
My Christmas Story
By: Halle Froelich
Hi, today I am going to tell you tell you about how I celebrate my Christmas, where I got, who I see and what I do.
Usually I go to my grandma’s house and celebrate, all of my cousins go there too and we all celebrate actually. So this year we will go there, it is a 3 ½ hour drive so it takes awhile to get there so I pack a lot of things before the drive- for the car and the 2 ½ days I stay there= my D.S., MP3 Player, some coloring books, and some snacks. We get on the road around 10:00 A.M. usually.
My brother does not like road trips but he survived. We get there, and see all of my cousins we never really get to see- Mara (13), Katelynn (12), Paige (9 ½ ), Abbie (9), Grant (6), and Connor (4) and then of course my brothers Carter (10) and Tristan (7) and Me (9). We get there at around 12:30 P.M. because we usually have to stop for lunch.
When we get there we have a little snack and play outside and inside... a lot! Then we talk and hang-out. then it gets to be around 3:00 P.M. so we take my cousins dog- Zoey out for a walk. Then we go home and play truth- or- dare, Uno, and Sorry Sliders. that lasts 2 hours. It is now 5:00 P.M. and we usually have supper around that time.
We will have stuffer turkey and green bean casserole. After dinner we make our beds and have lefse ( A norwegian food we have every Christmas). the the good part- wait for Santa!! We head upstairs and go watch for Santa out the window. Santa comes and we open our presents. That takes a while because we pass them out 1 by 1 every time because it is our tradition to do that- Mara then Kate then Paige then Abbie then me then Carter then Tristan and then Grant and Connor.
Then we have to go to bed...
I wake up in the morning and then it is Christmas and I play with my presents. Then check our stockings, I love stockings!! We have breakfast- eggs, toast, bacon, hash browns, pancakes and waffles. Then we play house for a bit and then spa and hair styling. Then do a tea-party and then pack up to go home.
Then make our special cookies and eat them and say good-bye to all of my cousins and hit the road. Thats what I do for my Christmas!!
I'm really looking forward to it!! What do you do?
