Hey! How was your Christmas? Mine was great! :) Usually, once Christmas Day passes, it just feels like Christmas is over. But we actually still have a Christmas party to do with our cousins- we weren't able to do it yet because some of them were sick. And we have one in January to do with my older siblings... I still have Christmas presents to finish. ;)
Well, I shall tell you all about my Christmas. :)
First of all, we watched A December Bride the day before Christmas Eve.
I really enjoyed it. :)
Then came Christmas Eve. We had a little Christmas Eve party ourselves that night. We had little smokies, meatballs, cole-slaw, and a drink that I can't think of what it's called- juice and ginger ale or something. :)
We were going to have buffalo wings too, but we didn't get them done in time, and had them later.
Then we Skyped with my older siblings, grandparents, aunt and uncle, and cousins. :)
After that we opened some presents. I'll show you some later. ;)
And lastly, we watched a movie. My mom just found a random Christmas movie on christiancinema.com , called Miracle Maker.
I really enjoyed it, and recommend it! =D It was about these people in a little old-fashioned town, in need of a "miracle maker". There's a "scrooge" in the story, some funny parts, and some sweet romance as well. <3 It was pretty cute. I love that I found a movie that I really like, when I'd never heard of it before! :)
OK, on to Christmas morning. I woke up, got dressed, took the rollers out of my hair that I'd put in the night before... and when we were all in the living room, we opened our stockings, and I gave my parents their present from me (us siblings are giving presents in January, which I've probably told you). :)
Here's all the lovely things I got! =D
A beautiful notebook, maker pen-sort of things, an graphite drawing pencils! :D
Compact mirror (which I needed), beautiful ring (from this consignment shop my and my mom checked out the other day, which "thousands" of rings), a girly pink weapon ;P, a nice flashlight, eye shadow, lip gloss, and this cute flower necklace! :)
Now for the edibles! ;) This picture pretty much explains it. Ooh, but beef jerky! :D That stuff is so good.
Lastly, my mom made me a CAMERA pillow case! Eep, it's so awesome! =D Look at all those retro cameras! I should have taken this picture from the other side, 'cause I think it's even better. ;) But anyhow. This even matches my other decoration pillows, because it's black and white. :) I also got the rest of the fabric in my stocking, so I can make something else from it.
This is the family gift my mom got us, which we opened Christmas Eve! The Peter Pan puzzle is so magical-looking! :D I'm glad we have another puzzle to do. We used to get puzzles in MN from people, and those memories of making them are good ones. :)
And it'll be fun to learn this game! :D
Here's a few things me and my siblings got from cousins. Those beans! I can't wait to do it with my cousins here. ;D
OK, back to telling of Christmas. After opening stockings, we ate breakfast (well, I didn't. I just ate some things from my stocking. ;P) and got ready for church.
This is what I wore. :) My curls had fallen out quite a bit before we got home and I have my five-year old sister take these pictures. I had even used lots of hairspray... but no. They kinda like to fall out. ;P
These were before church... maybe my curls were more curly here. ;) I quite like my outfit, and how my hair actually looked nice (can be so hard to style it! "The front looks nice" *looks at the back* "Ugh!" ;P). But I do kind of wonder if my dress was too short, especially with heels? Ooh, did you see my heels? I got those not too long ago at Goodwill, and they're SO cute! ;)
Late that day, we went to our friend's house for dinner. We had Italian food, and it was SO good. That lasagna... AND, my mom made tiramisu!
I've been wanting to try that ever since I did a report about Italy one year, and yesterday I finally got to. =D It was really good! If you like coffee, REALLY light cake, and whipped cream, you'll probably like this. ;)
Yea, so I had a fun time there. We played some games, and had some laughs. ;) That's always fun.
Well, tell me about your Christmas! =D
p.s. what do you think of my changed header? ;)
