Samantha and I are wearing Christmas dresses! They're both mine but I let Samantha use it because she didn't have any Christmas dresses that fit. I'm glad that I have the same size as her!!
Do you like them?
"McKenna, are we leaving soon?"
"Yes, your Dad told us to go to the car."
While I went to hug Chrissa, Samantha seated herself next to Liberty (my cousin) "Hello Liberty. How are you?"
"What do you think Marie-Grace?" Elizabeth asked.
"Maybe we should do youngest first."
We all agreed to this idea. I like it because that's the way my family did it. I miss Kit and my Mom. I talked to Kit a little but I talked to my Mom for about 30 minutes. Or more.
I opened a gift from Marie-Grace. A Gymnastics poster! She painted it herself!
"Samantha, I think that it's your turn next. You're 11 right?"
She opened a dress. "I like it. Thank You!"
"Would you mind opening my gift now?" Elizabeth asked Marie-Grace.
Then two girls can in. I felt like I'd seen them somewhere before. Oh! Of course! Sand Hill Adventures! They're Liberty and Marie-Grace's friends! I went to meet them.
"Hello! I'm McKenna! You're Addy right?"
"Yes, I'm glad to meet you."
Jubilee ripped more paper to get to the gift from Elizabeth and Chrissa and left the paper on the floor.
It was my turn, I opened a gift from Libby (Liberty), it was for Kit to but I she would see it once she got back.
Samantha opened a gift to find a box. "It's what I've always wanted. A box!!!" Samantha said, laughing.
"Look McKenna, there is a gift for Kit."
"I'll just bring it home with me and give it to her then."
I got Emily's p.j.'s!
"Dear, I tried to get the ones for your dolls but I got onto the cyber Monday sale to late. I hope you don't mind."
"That's OK! Thank You Nana and Papa! I really like them!!"
I started to pull out the paper. I thought that I should look at the tag to make sure that it was for me.
"I don't think that I want to do that."
I love spending time with family on Christmas but the real meaning for Christmas is to celebrate Jesus Birthday!
