On Christmas Eve we went to church like we do every year on Christmas Eve. Some parts were boring, but it made my family happy. After church we went to my cousins house and we opened some presents and ate dinner. I got a new sports bag, a gift card, cloths, and a Orlando city soccer bag. Later that night we went home and got rest for Christmas.
CHRISTMAS!!! I woke up at 5:30 and woke up my brother then my parents. Like every Christmas we open the stockings first. I got a lot of cleaning products like deodorant, shampoo, and that sort of stuff. Then we went for gifts. I got a new soccer ball which is the one I wanted. I got another bag which has my school’s logo. The reason I got that for Christmas was because my step-dog ate the other one. I also got a couple video games such as Call of Duty Black Ops 3 and Star Wars battlefront. My family also got are own BB8 which is the new droid from the new Star Wars movie. And finally for the final bigger gifts. We are going to see Macklemore in concert, and this is my first ever concert. I also got a new iPhone for Christmas. It is the new iPhone 5s. I now have a better phone then both of my parents. Finally the biggest gift of all is that we are going to Disney Land in California. My dad is going on a business and he is taking all of us with him. We are also staying in the Grand Californian right next to both of the parks.
After we settled down we got ready to go to my Nana and Papa’s house. For dinner we had turkey and ham and some other stuff. After we ate we opened presents. I got a MSU beach towel. I got a spinning lantern, cloths , a new chair for my desk and a soccer goal.
I had an amazing Christmas and I can’t wait till the next one. I also wonder what will happen in 2016. I don’t really have a new year resolution. I just want a good new year.
This year for Christmas I am really excited. The reason I am so excited is so I can take a long break from school. School has been really long for me this year this year. There is so much stuff to to remember and it is getting confusing. For Christmas I don’t have the full list so here is some of the things I have been wanting.
Just before Christmas I had my last two football games. The first game I got a 95 yard touch down run. Then after that I got a interception that I ran to the touchdown. Then I got a extra point after a touch down. The next game I made a touch down. Then I went on defense and I injured someone. I didn’t mean to, but I did. Then I had a play where I caught the ball and an older kid was behind me and bumped me in the head then he fell then I ran a little bit more. Then I fell. Then we won. After we went to a party for the game. We went to Buffalo Wild Wings. I had boneless wings. After we went to a friends and slept over. We played video games. My head hurt for awhile and my mom was worried, but I’m fine.

Sunday we went to our favorite German restaurant, the Willow Tree in Sanford. We go with all of our family and eat good food and listen to fun german music. It’s a great Christmas tradition.

Monday we chilled and then went to meet our new “cousin” Mira. She’s not really our cousin, but we are kind of pretending she is.

Tuesday went to church for Christmas Eve. It wasn’t fun.

I got Disney Infinity. My mom and dad got an Apple TV and a big flat screen tv. Then it was are final gifts I got a iphone and my brother got a iPad. After we played with our toys.

Then we went to my grandma and grandpa’s house. Got more presents. I got cloths and a pocket knife. I really like the pocket knife. It’s a Swiss Army Knife that my grandparents got for me in Switzerland.
Boys and pocket knives – good idea?
The next I went to my Nana and Papa’s house and got more presents. I got more cloths and a remote control car that goes in the water and land. The next we tried the car put it doesn’t work we’ll so we are figuring it out. After we stared to redecorate my room. Room first we cleaned then washed. After painted and then put every thing back in. It looks so much better.
And now it’s time to go back to school and I’m not really looking forward to that.
I had a Thanksgiving break this past week – no school for 9 days!
On Saturday I had a football game. I kinda felt bad it was 42 us and the other team had 6 they missed the extra point. We also let them get the touchdown because they weren’t very good. At the same time my brother had a basketball game and they don’t keep score. After my friend came over to have a sleep over we played video games and made paper guns.
Sunday I went to his house to play. We played video games the whole time. Then I slept over again at his house. Then we went to Hard Knocks, which is a laser tag place.

Tuesday, me and brother stayed home and just hang around. Same with Wednesday. And we took our Christmas card picture – it’s pretty cool. But on Wednesday for dinner we went a polish restaurant and I ate pierogies with my grandma and grandpa.
Thursday we set up Christmas ornaments. Then went to our grandma and grandpa’s house. But for some reason we did Jewish stuff. Like play dreidel and ate Jewish food like brisket and potato pancakes. Then we brought Wrigley back to Mrs. Amanda and Mr. Joe. He was happy to see them. But we miss Wrigley.
A very Jewish Thanksgiving
Friday I went to my Nana and Papa’s house to stay with them. After we went UCF and went tailgating I had lots of fun. We went with my friend name Matt. I had lots of candy and soda. We played out side and inside. We also saw the marching band. Then we went to my Matt’s house and watched the game.
Saturday my cousins slept over. We played video games and outside. When we woke up we played more video games. Then we went to a place to eat. Then my cousins left. Then we went home and got ready for school.
My favorite Christmas traditions are setting up Christmas decorations, building a gingerbread house and going to Candlelight processional at Epcot. Candlelight is a concert at Disney about Christmas and lots of songs about Jesus. My least favorite thing about the holidays is putting all of the decorations down.
On Thursday we went to UCF and we went ice skating. I got the hang of it but it got really crowed so we went on the Ferris wheel. My mom freaked out. It was fun then we went to the book store to take a picture with Santa.

When we went back we played video games and went to bed.
The next day we went back to Disney and I we went to Epcot for the food and wine festival. I ate fish and chips and some other food like cheese soup and it was really good food. We also went to a place that you can get cups of soda. there was only 3 I did not like. Then we met up with one of my mom’s and dad’s friend. We ate again but I didn’t eat a lot. I ate a cheese burger.
