CHRISTMAS!!

I love Christmas. It is literally my favorite holiday. It's just such a good time to remember family, charity, and most important of all - the man whom the holiday was named after :). It's just that one time of the year when everything seems bright and cheerful, even though it's technically the coldest and darkest days of the year.

Yesterday was good :). My brother woke us all up at 7 in the morning and showed us all his new bike he got from Santa haha. Santa gave the rest of us Kindle's, which I've been messing around with for the past two days. I pretty much knew what all my presents were, since I picked them out with my mom, but it's nice to get them and know that someone cares about you anyway. I especially like giving presents, but I never know what to get for people. I over-analyze, I think :/

Anyway, it was just a chill day, dinner was really good, I made ornaments, listened to some TSO, watched A Christmas Story, and just had fun spending time with my family.

It's also been good to see all my friends again. We all pretty much go to different colleges so it's always nice to catch up on each other's lives. It's interesting the things some people have been through. As one of my friends puts it, "High school doesn't prepare you for how crazy life is after you leave it." So true.

Here are a few pictures of my break so far.  But you should wait for the family portraits we took at JC Penney hahaha. My mom is such a portrait Nazi. It's insane. They turned out pretty good though.
