I got everything I needed!
Rainboots for the usual downpours of my state.
A new camera, as my old one was lost.
A new phone, as I had my old one for a year and a half.
But I think my favorite gift was the family parties that are going on. Last night I got to see how much my toddler cousin had grown in the four months that have passed since I was home last. I practiced my leadership skills by directing the Seven Cousins’ Third Annual Christmas show. 🙂 With permission from the author, we performed a short skit called “The Mystery of Dunbar Mansion,” a comedy. My baby cousin stole the show by walking up to her brother, playing the not-dead man with a knife in his back, and trying to figure out what he was doing laying on the ground. She is precious.
Right now, my sister and I are baking Rollo cookies, cresent rolls, and sweet potatoes for Christmas dinner. At college, I really miss being able to cook whenever I want. But that makes coming home even more special.
To whoever reads this, I heartily wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Happy Birthday, Jesus.
