Enjoy her thoughts on Christmas break.
Mom asked me to write a post for her blog this week. Like I don't write enough when I'm in school. She didn't even give me a topic, and I was in the middle of watching A Christmas Story when she asked.
She offered to type if I told her the words, so I made the deal.
Santa and my parents got me several books. And my Nana and Papa got me a Kindle Touch and a gift card for Amazon. I can't wait to download books!
I love to read series, so Mom and I are going to sit down later and look through Amazon. I've read 26 books since school started, and they were all 400 pages or more. I hope to read a few more over Christmas.
Right now, I'm reading Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. It's the second book in the Hunger Games Trilogy. So far I love them and can't wait for the Hunger Games movie next year.
Christmas break is all about wearing pajamas all day, playing games with my family, watching television, and the best of all... reading a good book.
I'm thinking there's a great opportunity to sit on the couch with a book in my hand and bond silently with her! She's definitely her mother's daughter.
Not to be outdone, my other two girls wanted in on the action.
Reagan, a 4th grader and sports enthusiast, is looking forward to doing the gingerbread house that "we were supposed to do before Christmas."
Wait, I think that's more of a note to Mom than a contribution to this post.
Maddie, my first grader, said she was just looking forward to no school and being with her family. I gave her a hug. My other two girls told me to stop treating her like a baby. ;-)
From our house to yours, we hope you are enjoying this last week of 2011.
What's your favorite part of the holidays once the hustle and bustle of Christmas is over?
