Christmas Time Already?

Wow it's Christmas time already, how did that happen. I just can't believe the season of Christmas is already here, it seems like thanks giving just finished... oh... wait... it did...

Our house is completely decorated, inside, and out. We always decorate our tree with a whole bunch of different ornaments we have from a whole bunch of different places. Almost everyone pitches in to help put up the decorations.

Here is a picture of our tree

And here is a picture of the outside of our house.

Every year my uncle comes over on Christmas Eve to spend the night. On Christmas morning I wake him up and we open our stockings. After that we wake up my Grandparents/parents and watch them open their stockings. When all that's done we get dressed, go downstairs, eat delicious cinnamon rolls that my grandma makes for us.

When we finish we clean up and head over to the tree to open presents. It's a really fun time; getting and watching other people get presents. About 10:30 is when my mom and brothers come over. We keep all their presents in a room upstairs until they come so there will not be so many presents under the tree, which there already are.

After everything is finished I open up some of the things I got and  play with them or build them, like I have to do sometimes. Finally we eat and then enjoy what we got.

But let's not forget the real reason for Christmas, the birth of Jesus, the son of God. This is what I wrote when we lived in Italy.  The Meaning of Christmas

I hope you all have a good Christmas and a happy new year.
