X-mas & whatever
Ok... I will try to write with originality because I don't want to have a boring blog! ;) I will "mix" french and english because I CAN DO IT!! hahaha I'm kidding... I'll just write like I speak so bad!
Well, American Christmas isn't really different of the french Noël. I mean, it's just Christmas tree, food, presents, family... I guess Christmas is "plus ou moins" (more or less) the same everywhere.
The december 22th, we went to church, just the sisters. Ate a lot, sang and prayed.
The december 23th, I did gift wrapping with Brianna at the mall. We collected money for the band. It was busy and crowded!! I like wrapping and it was fun. We do that from 9am to 3pm.
The december 24th, gift wrapping again! From 3pm to 6pm the even Christmas day. We wrapped many things... clothes, toys... ah! a very famous one "Justin Bieber secret box" :/ . The evening, we ate with the missionary (les missionaires Mormons). I forget what exactly we ate but it was good.
The december 25th, CHRISTMAS!! I woke up early, actually not really around 9 but for me it's early. We took a seat around the tree and unwrap the presents!! I got chocolate and candy, pensil, american flag, USB key (just for picture "8000 pictures"), $10 and a tiny, cute clarinet with "Juliette 2013"... so cute and the best one pull from France THANK YOU VERY MUCH!! The rest of the day, we went to Marce's brother & co'. Food again. I ate brownies and there was a huge cheese cake but I didn't even try. I played Mario cart on wii with the kid (thanks brothers, I'm not too bad thanks to you haha. I practiced with Nico) and I talked with everyone. At the end, after "dinner" (it was not really a dinner just "self-service"), the Filipinos Santa Claus came to distribute maybe 50 presents because we were maybe 15 with the cousins, grandparents, parents, boyfriend and other guys! I got 30 pensils, 3 nutella, a ugly necklace, coockies... I want to say thank you everyone, thanks family. I'm too glad to live with you. Then, we left and because american people are crazy, they took me to see the Christmas lights. One house, a neighbor completely crazy, every inch covered with lights and funny charecters like Snoopy, horses and of course Santa Claus... Santa who skiing, Santa who taking a bath, Santa who driving, Santa with 90' style and the most fun Santa in the toilet!!
Everyday I Skyped with my family and my friends (and boyfriend). So, thank you Skype even if it's always blurry or with no sound. Thanks skype save my life.
Today, the december 26th, I was an amazing day with Ian and his family.
