Sadly I didn't get to attend my maternal family event again this year due to work. Daisy missed out as well, and she was a bit sad she couldn't get a bill from the Christmas tree. My grandmother's boyfriend came up with the idea, and had the Andrew Jacksons to back it up. There was some kind of game, and some people got less or more depending on luck.
I didn't really mind missing that, but I do regret not spending time with my nephews.
So many people there though, lots of presents to go around.
My mom did tell me that my nephew saw my gift to him (the spider-man shirt) and begged his mom to wear it right then and there. I was a bit worried he wouldn't know who Spider-Man was, but he thought the shirt was so cool.
But on Christmas morning, we did our own little thing. It's not a huge or great amount of gifts but holiday-worthy I suppose.
I told my mom that this year that I wanted just presents alone. I like to have some sort of surprise that morning. She didn't know what to get so I told her Halo 4 awhile back. I played it for a day to make sure it worked, and it made the holiday something to look forward to.
Later that day I picked Daisy up from her Aunt's house after their get-together was over. It was time for her presents to be opened. We did stockings this year, and they were filled mostly with candy.
Can you believe Daisy begged me to get her this Christmas Teddy Bear months before to make sure she had one? Every year she wants one.
She also loved The Hunger Games when we saw it, so she wanted the DVD for Christmas.
And some other goodies as well. That's a general look at this year's Christmas. Happy holidays everybody!
