Christmas Christmas!

Woot! Woot! *smiles* Christmas is coming! Christmas has always been on my most favorite holiday list. Not only because I get AWESOME presents but because I get to be with my family. (: My mom and I are usually left to the decorating of the house and tree, but we are procrastinators so we are lucky if we get everything up a couple days before Christmas! We used to have the usual celebration at my house but that changed after my grandpa Larry died on January ninth 2006. After that my grandma was really sad... just like all of us. ): so ever since we now have Christmas over at her house! (which I love considering ,aside from aunt April and uncle Bubbas house, Grandmas is my favorite place to go!) Usually we go over to her house about a week before Christmas and live there. For the WHOLE week!! (: the night before Christmas my mom dad and little brother sleep in the guest bedroom and I sleep with grandma! Then at about 4:30 in the morning i find myself lying awake so excited I could burst! I usually end up falling asleep for an hour or so but at 6 o'clock its time to WAKE UP!! After my grandma wakes up my parents they send Colton in the bedroom and we talk really fast and jump around in all the anticipation that fills our bodies! Finally they call us out and we run down the hall as fast as we possibly can! When we reach the living room we go nuts! We then do the 'one kid opens a present then the other one opens one.. then repeat.' until we both open all our presents (stockings included!) Afterwards there is always one present sitting on the table that is for both of us! We quickly tear it open like insane maniacs! my mom and dad usually start opening there's but we lose all interest in that because we are usually to preoccupied with fiddling around with our new doo dads. It is so much fun having christmas at grams house! Its such a hoot because she has six dogs Teddy, Penny, Charlie, Nitro, Mia, and Payton and two cats River and Cassy and they usually "help" me and colton (my brother) open our presents!

Calling every single person who send you a card or present ( I am so appreciative that they did but man it's so boring calling all those people!)
Calling people to tell them merry christmas. Bleh.
Signing your name and a special note on all the christmas cards your mom sends out.

I love christmas!
