Finally put our Christmas tree up! Unfortunately we don’t use a real tree anymore, but with everyone having such a busy schedule we can never find time to go hunting for the tree and all the other stuff you have to do with them. Also dad doesn’t want to have to tend to it all Christmas long. Either tree I still love putting up the tree it gets me excited for the 25th day of December!
With Christmas rolling around you can’t help but think of Christmas songs, movies, and shows. Everyone somewhere deep down has a secret love for Christmas, whether they like it or not. Even though I wish that people would wait till farther in December to start with the Christmas festivities, I still do have some favorite songs and movies.
Ever since I was a little kid I loved the movie The Polar Express. I was always big into the whole “Santa Claus” type deal. I still just like the idea of him and the feeling that you get on Christmas day when you wake up and see the tree with all of the presents below it. The Polar Express really gets me in the mood for Christmas. Just the way they take a kid that doesn’t believe in Santa and they take him to the North Pole and show him around. It instills the fact that you don’t have to just be young to have Christmas spirit. Yeah I know Santa isn’t real but it’s still great to convince the kids that he is and their reaction to presents from Santa. I think it shows there is still hope for the ever-fading idea of Santa.
I think with the way that times are changing, a lot of parents are losing the will to try and get their kids to believe in Santa. To me I think that it is a great way to keep your kid active in the Christmas spirit and get them to think outside of the box on things. It helps them be more open-minded toward things. It almost helps them accept things that they don’t see, and learn that you don’t have to see something to believe in it. Christmas time is to me the best time with the food, the family aspect, and the gift giving. Everyone should see how much of an impact Christmas can have on everyone, and just put everyone in a better mood.
So Christmas time is rolling around and the “25 Days of Christmas” on ABC has officially started. I am pretty excited for Christmas, even though I will not be able to eat at all for wrestling. My first Christmas party is this weekend with my step-dads side of the family. I asked for only a few things this year. I asked for a keyboard from my dad. I used to have one from when I was a kid but it broke a couple years ago. I can play guitar too I just want to get better at keyboard. From my mom I asked for some sunglasses and an iPad. I think I would love to have one because I could do just about anything with it. I hope that I can get them if not I still think I will have a good Christmas. What are you getting?
So I had a pretty good Thanksgiving break. My first day I spent wrestling and that sucked. I had to weigh in and take a hydration test. Then after that we had practice and that sucked also. Once done with practice I went to Granite City with my mom and step-dad. After I went home and cleaned my room.
On Thanksgiving Day my moms side of the family came over and we had dinner. I was not able to eat very much at all but that was okay. Once they left I had Gavin, Connor, and Trey come over. We went to Wal-Mart and I had forgotten that it was Black Friday time and the place was packed. However I did get a good deal on a new razor. I had to spot Gavin so he could buy a lava lamp. In the morning I had practice again and that sucked. But after that I was able to pick up a friend and they came over for the day and it was fun. We were able to watch some movies and play games. Then I had to take them home.
The next day I had practice in the morning I had practice and it sucked. But afterwards I went over to my friend Kody’s house and helped cut up some trees. From there I went to Alexa’s house for the Ohio State game and that was fun. There was some good food there and we had a good time.
On Sunday I woke up early and ran at about seven in the morning, then I headed over to my dads house so we could go to my grandma and grandpa’s house for my Elling family Thanksgiving. I went there and fell asleep because I was not able to eat for wrestling. Then I was able to look at my senior pictures that my aunt took. Overall I had a pretty good weekend!
