Claim: Frostbite This Winter, after exams, I spent all of my time with family, including decorating our Christmas trees and helping with all of our last minute shopping. My sister, dad and I watched the Doctor Who Christmas Special as we always do at Christmas time. We are all still in the holiday spirit and I intend to have a new years party with some of my friends.
Claim: Malichi Well this month I thought it'd be nice to go to LA the city not the state lol and volunteer at a homeless shelter serving food I have been doing it all month even Xmas eve after I injured my knee I was serving the ppl it was fun. For Christmas I was supposed to go skiing for the first time can't until I get better now. My little sister and I made pop corn garland stuff grandmas cat ate most of it before Xmas it was sad but we had a blast devorating our home and the tree together we made a huge mess with the tinsel gma and mom freaked out! We made our hand prints out of clay and painted them to look like Santa. For new years I am going to a Rocky horror picture show themed party but I am not dressing like a character this year I usually do my friends and I started doing this our freshman year and it just became tradition.
For Christmas I went over my cousin's house and played about everything electronic all day. xD For the rest of my winter break I'll be catching up on all my arts which will be fun since I just got a new tablet! As for the New Years, I'm going New Years bowling with my friend.
Claim~Mystquiq My month will be filled with animations, fun with my friends and playing outside with hopes of snow. Im very active so i play outside, and enjoy running around with my friends. I just love drawing too. :3
Well now that finals are over I'm going to finish getting all the presents ready for friends and family mostly. I had a fantastic day yesterday hanging out with friends to exchange presents for a secret santa event and then went to another party that evening for a pot luck and games. I'm also finally having time to just curl up with my cat and read several books that I haven't had time to touch with all the stress from school. Tomorrow I plan to go to the Dickens Fair with a group of friends in costume which should be a great time Other than that I might be planning to go up to the mountains for some fun in the snow.
This month I am trying to do a lot of fun things, as this will be the last Christmas I will have with my family and the Country for a long time. See I just got my contract to move and work in China so I am doing a lot of things before I go.
First off I had my graduation already and the party, just happened a week ago so because it was in December I am counting it! Because both me and my brother graduated the same time we just threw one party and made it extra special. So we spent time with family and friends just hanging out! (I know not so fun for others, but I loved every minute of it)
Then I am going to one of my friends coming out fancy as hell party. We are to dress up so fancy, ball gowns and everything, then go some where not so fancy. (maybe the movies) But the point is, before this we are going out thrifting to find some fancy dresses, mainly for me as I have none!
Next up, Baking!!!! I am spending 2 full days with my mom to bake presents for everyone! The smell of cinnamon rolls (home made ones baked from scratch) will cling to the kitchen for days after, I just know it.
Christmas is going to be more down key this year as it is my last one with the family so we are spending it together. Sadly my dad had to give up Christmas this year so he could come to our graduations, so we had a mini gift giving day and he already has his presents. Though on the up side, for bonding me and my brother are cooking dinner. . . ok that is a lie, he is cooking because he is way better then me and I am just helping so our mom can have a rest.
So yah I am having a lot of fun, mainly close to home and with friends, but it is still a ball and I have been more happy this month then I have been in a long time.
This month I will be going to see my awesome cousins who live a few hours away because I don't get to see them much, and we'll open our Christmas gifts and everything. We always go shopping, and have a great time together. The things they give me isn't the fun part of coming over to their house though. It's seeing them. That's always the funnest part of my visit, talking to them and being with my family.
Well lets see if this counts :3 I had my graduation ball last night >w< where I danced with my sister, friends and family til midnight :3 I went to stay at a beach last week with 6 other friends (down in the southern hemisphere it's summer ) we made sand castles, silhouette jumping photos on the beach and swam in the sea for a few days before coming back home . For the rest of December, my aunt will be here to celebrate Christmas with my family and some family friends. So yeah :3 that pretty much sums up my December xD
Well I have just finished all my exams so I'm going to visit my family and friends in Montreal tomorrow! We are getting a tree (which the cat will be super excited about hahaha) I get to eat CAKE (it's very hard to get cake without milk so this only happens one or twice a year) and I get to see all my baby cousins. This is probably also the last time in a loooooong while I'll get to see one of my friends because he's in the army. All obvious holiday shenanigans will ensue including our yearly New Year bash featuring the wonderful fail of our charades tournament.
This December, I'm going to be spending a lot of time in the Washington state mountains with my mentor and his son. We have a tradition of going to a certain lake in between two mountain peaks just before the snow makes the roads too bad to drive. We also have a lot of snowball fights, as well as paintball and air-soft wars (they get pretty intense). For the holidays I'll be spending Christmas eve and Christmas day with family from both my mother's and father's side, and the days after with close friends. For New Years, I hope to spend it with someone I hold dear in my heart and h her parents, even though we haven't been working as more than friends lately.
I'd like to wish everyone happy holidays and a happy New Year May your time with family and friends be filled with laughter and joy
I will be doing a lot of fun things for December. My fiance and I are going snow camping up in the mountains for a weekend. We'll be building an igloo and having snowball fights. Then on Christmas eve we're going to go out and look at the decorated houses in our neighborhood with Christmas music blasting (a tradition started by my grandma with my mom). And on Christmas day we're having a huge feast with my mom's side of the family. After dinner we'll be playing board games. Then on December 31st we'll count down to the new year with my dad's side of the family complete with games, food and sparkling apple juice.
Every Christmas we do the same things, traditions that make our Christmas awesome! On the 20th we make cookies, and when I say cookies we usually make around 12 dozen cookies, 2-3 pounds of home made candy, and three trays of cupcakes On the 21st, we will go to the bright nights light show. Which is a park, that every year decorates the trees and everything with Christmas lights in all shapes and sizes. On the 22nd, we always drop off Christmas cards to the elderly home for people who dont have any family left/around. *yes we actually do this* on the 23rd we go to the loose leaf tea store and purchase a Christmas tea blend specifically for Christmas eve. We usually finish any last second Christmas shopping them also. On the 24th we go to my husbands parents house, as they eat and open presents on Christmas eve instead of Christmas day; then when we get home (usually around midnight) we make a pot of tea and sip it in the living-room while we watch late night Christmas movies. Then on the 25th, we always stay in our PJ's, open presents in the morning, and then cook until dinner! That is our Christmas, and our yearly traditions.
This Christmas I'm not doing anything super special per se, but my sisters and their husbands and my one sister's dogs are coming up like next week to spend Christmas with Mom and I! Mom's even planning a little "open house" thing so that her prayer group ladies can come and meet my sisters. Unfortunately my brother isn't coming though that's because he's going with his girlfriend to meet her parents. No matter! I'm super excited for my sisters and brothers in law coming because I rarely see them or talk to them (my fault as much as theirs) and so yay seeing them for a few weeks will be fun! Not a big deal to others, but it is a big deal to me~
This December I will finally get to spend time with my older sister, nephew, andmy grandmaG. My sister has spent the last four years in a abusive relationship, she finally left that guy and its good to see her smile again. Shes physically disabled from attempted suicide, thus her and my nephew are miricals in there own way.
In addition for the first time since grandpa died, grandma will be visiting. While only by marriage, shes the sweetist woman I've ever known. I can't express how thrilled I am that shes finally going to be here for the holidays, its been close to seven years since she last came up here.
While I'm traveling anywhere, I wish those that are a safe trip and ultimately a merry Christmas.
Well tommorow is my birthday so my mom and I will be spending the whole weekend partying like rockstars. We will see mutiple movies and go just have fun. I'm not quite sure what all we will do, though. Next week is nothing but school, nothing fun. But after that, we will be heading to my grandmal's house. On the day before Christmas Eve we will hold the family tradtion of Forman Family Christmas where all of my grandpaw's family comes to celebrate. We echance gifts and laughs until tommorow. On Christmas Eve the Forman's leave and the other family members come all throughout the day. They spend the night and we put all our gifts under the tree. And since we were little my cousin and I stay up until Midnight and watch the santa tracker. Though we both know he is not real, with clear evidance, it is still pretty fun to see. On Christmas day my cousin and I wake up early and wake everyone in the house. We head for my Grandmal's office(where the tree is) and everyone exchances their gifts. Now, since I have no job and no money through the entire month I draw all my Christmas gifts for the family members my mom didn't let me stick my name on. Anyway, back to story, my step-dad makes us all food to replace what we all ate the night before. Then everyone will go home. The End
This winter, I'm going to be doing a lot of family stuff. We go bowling, to Christmas parties with all sorts of wacky activities. We get a little wild when it comes to visiting people... We give gag gifts, real gifts, we hide gifts, and do contests to see who opens theirs first. Just a normal Christmas... Personally, I have three Christmases. One for my dads side, one for when my grandparents are here, then the one I'm talking about. It's all crazy.
I'll be spending Christmas with my family & my fiance's family This Christmas will be very different, even trough we keep the same traditions. My aunt died this year, so did my very old dog, I'm now engaged, and my grandmother had a stroke, so it's not just A Christmas ... it might be the last Christmas with grandmom. The first without my dog (She loved Christmas .. So much food, so many people praising her, and always somebody that would sleep with her in the couch) and the first without my aunt, the first since I got engaged .. We'll be playing stupid games, laugh a lot, and eat a lot We'll cook meals for each other, and cuddle in the couch eating our deserts. Hopefully we'll have snow, and then we'll be either be making a snowman, but I think it's more likely it'll be snowball fight
This December, I am going to visit my boyfriend down in TN and spend the holidays with his family, it has been 3 yrs since I have seen his family and its been since July 14th that I have seen him. On Christmas Eve night we are going to the festival of lights, drive down several miles worth of road that has nothing but christmas lights in their own theme running along next to the road. On Christmas day, we will open our presents, have a lovely big breakfast, then go to his grandmother's house where we will have a huge southern style dinner, see and chat with family, along with probably singing Christmas songs while drinking, basically having a blast. The following week we are planning to go to Nashville for 2 days and 1 night, see the things that the city has to offer along with going to the Zoo. We have many dates planned throughout the month and he has some plans that he wont even tell me.
Claim: Zihoven It's a family tradition to go out to our acreage on Boxing Day (Dec 26) to have a big bonfire, do some skating and flip each other off of a flimsy little sled pulled behind a quad. I'm really hoping to find a pair of snowshoes this year so I can do a little bit of hiking in the backcountry to look for animal prints. :3
