This Christmas will be different. My brother Joel is going to Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan with his girlfriend Ashley. So, we are celebrating Christmas late this year as a family on December 30, 2018. Both my brothers will be there with their girlfriends, my mom, dad and me. My mom will still make a turkey with all the fixings that day. But I wait and fill up on dessert!
On Christmas Eve we will be at my grandma’s in Lloydminster. I will see my aunty, uncle and cousins that I haven’t see in awhile. My favorite part of Christmas is being with family of course. But my second favorite part of Christmas is seeing people’s faces when they open gifts. I also really love decorating the tree for Christmas.
The months leading up to Christmas are always so buys as we make homemade decorations at Centra Cam and at home. Every year Centra Cam decorates a tree for the Festival of trees where everyone helps out with the homemade decorations. The festival of trees has tons of decorated tress to see when you walk in from many groups/organizations. They are all so different and its fun to try and figure out what group decorated it. The Festival of Trees also has lots of tables of things for sale and you can do some Christmas shopping while there.
The weekend of the festival of Tress was busy for me as I also went to a bowling tournament in Vegreville. We met a bus at McDonald’s before heading out. There was a banquet at the Vegreville senior citizens’ Sunshine club after the tournament with Christmas themed food, and I had a piece of pumpkin pie. While I was there, my Singables community choir performed on the stage at the Festival of Trees which I missed. However my roommate was there and got to sing on stage.
I am looking foreword to the holidays season and going to some Christmas parties at work, home, with my family and with Rose Club.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
