Christmas at Grandma's house was
always my favorite time of the year.
The whole family would go over to
Grandma's house around five or
six-o=clock. I always could not wait
to see the family.
My cousin Danielle would always come
from Tennessee, she would stay at
our Grandma's house for a few
days. I always could not wait to see
her. I remember asking my Mother
before we would leave every year
when can I see Danielle.
When we would get over to Grandma's
Danielle would run out and give me a big
hug. We never got to see each other
that much, just on holiday's most of the
time so when we did see one another
we were inseparable.
The whole family would make so
much food on Christmas that when you
finished eating you could not move. Of
course Danielle and I would eat together
in the back of the room. When we
finished eating we played a game of
Tag around the pool table.
My Grandma and Grandpa would always
tell Danielle and I that Santa was
coming over with our presents, so
we could not go down stairs.
Danielle and I always got mad
about that and wanted to see Santa
After Santa put our presents down
stairs my Grandma would yell our
names and tell us to go in the basement. We always could not
wait for that time, we would run
fast as we could down stairs to see
what we had.
Danielle's presents were in front of
the couch and mine always behind
Danielle would always open her
presents fast. I would always be
pretty slow and my Mom would always
start to help me. We had at least
twenty presents each.
That is why I loved Christmas at
Grandma's house . She always made
sure we got the things that we
really wanted and made sure we
always had a great Christmas. My
Grandma and Grandpa are the best
Grandparents a kid could ever have.
Thank you guys I love you, Amanda
