New Year’s 2017
This past winter break has been the best way to catch up with my family, sleep in( which is the best), and have a stress-free week. I definitely needed the break to just relax and have fun! As a family, we did a couple of things. We celebrated Christmas, played with all our new toys and gadgets, watched movies and of course we had a few pajama days lol.
This past Christmas was a lot of fun! We spent the entire night on Christmas Eve going from neighborhood to neighborhood looking at everyone’s Christmas decorations. Honestly, not too many people participated in the annual decorating of the front yard, however we still had a great time singing our hearts out and rocking to Christmas songs throughout the evening. When we got home, we were so exhausted, no one even complained about going to bed! On Christmas Day, we woke up refreshed and bouncing off the walls because it was time to OPEN PRESENTS!!! I was really excited because I made everyone a little something: Dad got an ornament, mom got hand warmers (she’s always cold), Joseph a Minecraft ornament, Gwynneth also got an ornament that have dragons in it(current obsession) and of course I made everyone cards! I loved seeing their faces light up when they opened the presents!!
Toys and Gadgets
So, everyone got a gadget this year. My dad and I got a virtual reality headset for our new phones, which are super cool! I had to use my dad’s phone because mine was defective, so I am going through some withdrawals lol. My sister got a tablet, which she has been asking for and my brother got some new games, which he has been dying to have. All of these electronics are so cool that we spent a lot of time on themJ. We also got some other things like awesome sweaters, slippers, some pretty slick toys for the little ones. Gwynneth got a remote control BB8 from Joseph, and he also got a hover drone. I didn’t get any toys, but I got a lot of books because I am a bookworm and I go through them pretty quick!
New Year’s 2017
We had such an awesome New Year’s! It had snowed the night before, so we went out sledding for the entire day! We made a slick path that sends us all flying down it! It is so cool that we had to do it again today! There were some wipe outs, our own records were beat and we had a pretty great work out going up and down the drive way! ( A lot of exclamation points because it was a really cool day!!!!) You can see our fun snowday on my Youtube Channel(;
