I really have nothing original to say– it’s been a beautiful, incredible day, and if I were to try to stop and name my favorite part, I don’t think I could.
-Waking up at 3 a.m. to my little brother jumping up and down on the bed.
-Waking up again at 7 a.m. when we he ran around the room and squealed something about squirrels in his Gir voice. (This is when we actually got up.)
-Seeing the work of Santa. He really knows what I like 🙂 I got a bunch of new clothes, including not one, not two, but THREE vests (^.^), as well as mittens that can morph into fingerless gloves. Plus new headphones for my iPod, a new laptop battery, and software for my graphic tablet. And chocolate-covered mocha beans.
-Packing care packages and heading down to a low-income retirement home for socializing and a service. These elderly people are living pretty roughly, most with little more than the clothes on their back. We had a great time getting to know them and wishing them a Merry Christmas.
-My grandma’s (surprise) birthday party tonight. She, and my best friend’s sister, were both born on Christmas. She totally thought we’d overlooked her 70th birthday, until she watched as all her friends from around the country come through her front door to wish her a happy birthday. It was a great party.
-Getting the coolest piece of jewelry ever. My best friend knows me so well 😀
-And spending time with my family and friends! God bless you all this Christmas!
(My cousin Baylee wishes you all a good night!)
