This Christmas break I not only got to hang out with my family, but my friends too. The first week or two of Christmas break I stayed with my dad, stepmom and siblings. When I was at my dad’s, I hung out with my step sister, Taylor the most. Three days till Christmas Taylor took me shopping for the Christmas gift I had to get for one of my cousins, Chris, I had no clue what to get him so we just grabbed things. I got him two t-shirts, headphones, and a basketball game. That night we went to her grandmas, and stayed up till about 3 in the morning laughing and wrapping gifts. On Christmas day, my dad woke all the kids up by singing Christmas music and yelling for us to get up at like 6:30, when we finally got up we opened all the Christmas presents from my dad and his side of the family, usually we go to my mom’s after but she called and said we could stay another day and open present tomorrow, because she had the flu. So instead we went to my grandmas and opened presents and hung out with my family for hours. By time we got home I was so tired I went straight to bed. The next day we headed to my mom’s opened presents from her and my grandpa. After we opened presents my friend, Kailee, came over and we went to the mall. At the mall I had bought two sweatshirts and she bought a pair of jeans. So far my Christmas break was fun.After Christmas and shopping I went to my Uncle Scott’s house. At my Uncle Scott's I played monopoly with Mason, Tristan, my grandma, and Scott. As we played monplay Scott was also making us biscuits and gravy for breakfast. After monopoly was over and I was done eating Taylor came and picked me up and took me back to my dad’s. When I got there, they had gotten me another Christmas present, a puppy. I stayed up all night with Taylor cumming up with names for her, I ended up naming her Lilly. Three days went by and it was New year’s so I ended up leaving my dad's house and going to Jori’s to watch the ball drop.New years at Joris house. I got to Joris around 5:30, when I got there her dad took us to Dollar General to pick out snacks and drinks for the night. When we got back to her house a couple hours later Leilah came over, by then we just layed around listening to music waiting till 12. After the ball dropped we stayed up till 3 or 4 dancing, or laying there listening to Pandora. The next morning Jori had to go to one of her family's houses, so I went home and watched Netflix with my mom and siblings.
