Christmas 2009

Hey I’m back! Two posts in two days is a record!

Today I am going to talk about last year’s Christmas.
This is Mum's Christmas Tree.  It is a gum tree branch wrapped in fairy lights.

Well, last year we had Christmas at our place, I had saw so many people I hadn’t seen for ages. We had cousins, uncles and aunts come from Brisbane, some came from Monto and some came from lots of other places.
Rosebud and Zoe couldn’t control themselves when it was the night when Santa came they almost went to sleep as soon as Mr Fun tucked them in.
That morning Zoe, the early bird, woke me up (which I don’t like) and told me that dad had gone to the cattle. Unfortunately Dad was feeding out over the Christmas as we had had no rain. We were allowed to open our stockings from Santa but we weren’t allowed to open presents from relatives.
I had got another book called "A Diary of a Whimpy Kid", a watch, a small handbag, scoobies and some Smiggle things like rubbers and pencils.
After breakfast and when everybody had woken up the adults handed out Secret Santa presents, and then they handed out presents to the children and other adults.
In the end I had the Santa things, sunglasses, a scribble diary, Rosebud, Zoe and I all shared Harry Potter Cluedo, and heaps more.
The night before everyone left we had a Christmas Concert where everyone had to make/play a skit, music or comedy piece and perform it in front of everyone. I played a song on the piano.
When everyone had left I asked mum if a few friends and family could come over on New Years night and while the parents played poker, the children could go outside, but little did I know that poker was so long it could go all night which it practically did! It stopped at about 3am and that’s no joke! When it finished I went to a friends house for a sleepover. 

But a good time has got to end doesn’t it?
