Slept in today, skyped with my parents, went to HEB and starbucks.
When we got back home, Emily and I made ”sinterklaas lootjes” for my Dutch tradition that I am keeping up here!
So excited to introduce that to my american family.

Sunday we went to church, went christmas shopping online, skyped with my grandparents and Jasmine came over to hang out for a little while.
I worked on Emily’s ”surprise” for sinterklaas. I am making a tennis-court. Also it has to have a poem with it and that’s always lots of fun!
Emily and I hung out for the rest of the night.

Tuesday- THANKSGIVING BREAK!! we went to Macy’s after school to get a coat for me.
Then we went to Target and I bought all of Emily’s sinterklaas presents so that was a lot of fun.
After dinner we had some family time and made puzzles.
Me and Emily covered Katie’s room in post-its and Anson’s room in toiletpaper because they are coming home for thanksgiving break.

Wednesday we slept in, and when we woke up Katie & Anson were home!
Around 2, Me, Emily, Katie, Anson and mom went to a mexican place for lunch, which was really good!

When we got home I decided I was going to dye my hair brown because I’ve always wanted that.
So I had an appointment at the mall that night. After 2 hours, I was a brunette!
