Feliz Navidad! Merry Christmas! How do you say it in Japanese…..hmm

As I will have said in my last blog post I am stuck in an airport and therefore have no internet so I am typing up these posts in Word to be posted later when I have access. 

Christmas was much fun. I woke up and ate the Blueberry French Toast that my mom makes every year for breakfast. After cleaning up we opened our presents. I normally only get one good present and I know what it is but this year my parents had been rubbing it in my face that I didn’t know. It had been torture! I think my favorite part of Christmas is giving the presents. I’m not even kidding I love it to death.  

We got on the flight we were waiting for so this post that I was writing in the airport was cut short.  
Continuing on with my Christmas this year:

Not to be focusing only on what I got for Christmas but I am going to include it.  I am so thankful for my gifts and happy to have them.
-New cell phone come February (from my parents)
-New boots (from my parents)
-$50 dollars (from my Grandparents) which promptly went into my concert fund
-A cool shirt and $15 gift card for Target (from my Aunt and Uncle)
-An ornament (from my two cousins)
- Fuzzy socks and Xtreme airhead candy (from Bree)
- A Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader poster and handmade purse (from Christal)
-A SHINee lanyard (from Lysa)
-A 2011 planner with pictures that are Japanese themed (from the Lawrences)
-A book about Japan (from the Lawrences)
- A book on learning Hirigana and Katakana (from Jayne)
- A Japanese Grammar book (from Jayne)

I got other gifts too but these are the main ones that come to mind.

After we opened our presents we opened our stockings.  It was fun seeing my parents reacting to what they got.  I got a really cute bunny ornament in my stocking. After stockings we got ready to go to Jaynes parents house to have lunch and hang out. We got there around 12:30pm or so. We ate lunch with Jaynes parents and brother. There was turkey, parsnips, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and green bean casserole. Mmmmm so good.  The only time I have parsnips is when we have Christmas with them.
After lunch we watched Oliver Twist (the musical version) and Jayne took a nap upstairs while I just fell asleep on the couch watching the movie. After the movie was done we went upstairs and played catch phrase. There were several different teams. "kids" against adults, girls against guys, and then our families went against each other. I was on the winning team all but once if I remember right. 
After we finished with the game we decided to watch another movie. Jayne and I convinced everyone to watch Father of the Bride. We hadn't seen it in a long time and I really enjoy the movie.  After it was done my family and I went back home. I climbed into bed and caught up on a website I follow. 
After that I went to sleep :P

Have you ever had parsnips interwebz?
