When we came home we wrapped our last christmas gifts and then we went to bed.

CHRISTMASMORNING!!! YAY, time to celebrate my very first American Christmas!
We all got up at 8 in the morning and run downstairs in our PJ’s.
We gathered around the tree and dad would throw the presents at us.
All those happy faces while they were opening each others presents was amazing!

Friday, we had a relaxing day and at 2 we went to the cutest movie EVER, Frozen.

Saturday Jasmine came over, painted nails, watched movies and laughed a lot.
The rest of the day was kind of relaxing. At night we went out for dinner at County Line. That is another BBQ place in Texas.
Me & Katie shared a huge plate of beef & pork ribs, which was so awkward to eat. But anyways, it was so good!
And of course, those huge American glasses of soda. Free refills, awesome!
