I'll Be Home For Christmas

*Random thought of the Day: Once upon a time, there was a cute, "soft hearted", friendly, pink gingerbread man named Dante. He lived his life righteously and despite his yellow eyes, he cared for everyone in all of CandyLand. He was very popular and nice to everyone. Infact, he became the mayor of CandyLand. Well, one day, an evil child by the name of Anderelia, who was made of nothing but stuffing(like from a stuffed animal),came and tried to take over CandyLand. It was CAOS! So of course, what did Dante do? He just had to try and save everyone! He got everyone in safe places and then went out and tried to stop Anderelia. However, she had more power than anyone in the world and she knew very well of Dante's "soft heart". Though Dante was able to save his friends and townspeople, he did not survive the power of Anderelia. She found his soft spot and ripped him right in half!The Evil Anderelia laughed in her actions and then ate him right up! Dante's friends saw all of this and decided to take their own action! They got a bunch of big water hoses and sprayed her down so that all of her stuffing completely disolved! That was the end of Anderelia. Though a bitter sweet ending for Dante, the memory of his life lived for the people of CandyLand, LIVES ON! R.I.P: Dante, December 2009! The End.*

I'll be home for Christmas, you can count on me. Please have snow and MISTLETOE?! Gross!(: Well, I am home and there has been snow. A white Christmas in fact! Mistletoe? Well, maybe I'll get lucky on New Year's Eve(: HA! Well, I've been home for a week now and I got 2 more to go. It's been super nicely awesome! I've watched a lot of movies. Mainly the classic Christmas ones that I ALWAYS watch: *The Polar Express-for the 2nd time this month-its my absolute favorite! *My 2nd favorite-It's A Wonderful Life-such a classic heartwarming film and you can never go wrong with Jimmy Stewart! *All 3 Santa Clause movies-out of order *And if I'm lucky, I'll get to watch The Christmas Story....haha.

It's all been super great! I love being around my family at Christmas time. We did our traditional "delivering of goodie plates" last Sunday night. I love doing that! Especially decorating the cookies! Mom and I also sung "What Child is This?" in church that day.

Anyways, Happy Christmas to everyone today! Yeah I'm going British this year(: I just watched Harry Potter 6 the other day! Last night consisted of holiday festivities with Duane's family in Taylor. We did a little caroling, ate snacks and had a little talent show, involved the adorable Kalisha and Charlotte! All the kids did "The Nativity Scene". Christmas has been splendid today! A couple months ago, my digital camera screen shattered on the inside. Yeah. So-mom and Duane got me a new, and nicer digital camera! Woot! It's a Nikon coolpix 10 mgpx! And its blue and beautiful! They also got me a Canon printer so that I don't have to use other people's printers now! Woot! I got a few other things and it's been a very nice Christmas! It's nice to just relax and stay in pajamas all day(: Woot woot!

Tomorrow, mom and I at least, will prob hit up Walmart. Yeah-the day after Christmas shopping-ridiculous! But, I need to get a couple things, and mom wants to hit up the christmas stuff half off.

Well, I hope you all have had a wonderful Christmas Day! Remember that it's not really about the gifts and the decorations, or even the snow. Christmas is about our Savior Jesus Christ, who is God's greatest gift to all mankind. We should remember the Savior all year round, and remember his life and sacrifice for us. That's better than anything we could ever recieve!

Merry Christmas! I love you all!
