My Favorite Holiday.
I go outside to play in the snow. I make snowmen and forts. I put snowmen into the forts. I make snowballs and put them in my hideout so I am ready to have a snowball fight when we do have one. I make all kinds of stuff in the snow.
We decorate the tree with everything we have to put on it - like all of the houses, snowmen, Santa Claus, and others. All of the houses, snowmen, and Santa Claus are made out of the stuff that vases are made out of. We decorate with lights. We put stuff on our doors.
We get video games, toy guns, bikes, scooters, and little army guys. I hope you like Christmas. Ho, ho, ho.
One of the Best Seasons is Christmas
I like Christmas because I like my family, playing in the snow, and helping other people.
My family is a nice family. We play with our presents. My sister is cute. We like the presents. We think they are cool. My sister is cute, and my brother, my mom, and my dad are nice. My mom and dad are a nice mom and dad.
My brother, Markus, and I play in the snow. We make snow angels. We throw snowballs at each other just for fun. It feels good to go into our warm house when we are done.
My mom and dad are nice. I am happy I have a family. Some people are homeless and some are not. If I get money, I will give it to a homeless person. I would like to give some of my presents to homeless children.
My favorite thing about Christmas is opening presents. I open presents at my Grandma's house first. Some can be big, some can be small. Some can be toys, some can be money, and some can be clothes. It is fun opening presents on Christmas morning. After we open presents, we get to play with them. Then the family gets to play games together. Then I go home and open presents from my mom and dad, my brother, Caleb, and my littlest brother, CJ.

The Best Christmas Ever
Christmas is fun because I like giving presents. It's fun to do, it makes me happy, and I like tying them. I also like spending time with my family - like going to my grandma's, eating food until I can't eat another bite. I like opening presents and getting cool new stuff. But what I like the most is getting presents because of really cool video games and so, so much new toys. One Christmas Day I got this cool new game, and it was called 'Need for 'Speed'. The game was so fun to play, and before long I beat the high score on the game. I kept on playing the game all day long to beat the record. It was the very best Christmas I've ever had in my life.

My mom is busy in the kitchen making treats. I love the treats that my mom makes.
I can't wait to see my niece open her first present for Christmas. When she opens her first present, she will laugh. I think my niece would like diapers for Christmas.
The Wonderful Christmas
Christmas is a big deal at my house. Usually I get lots of presents. My three favorite parts about Christmas are playing the snow, decorating the tree, and getting presents.
When I play in the snow I like to go sledding. My sister goes with me. My dad pushes me down the hill. I make paths down the hill.
I also like decorating the tree. When I decorate the tree I only put on my Christmas ornaments. My sister puts her ornaments on, and my dad puts on the sports ornaments.
I usually get lots of presents from my mom and dad, my uncles, my aunts, and grandmas. When we go to my uncle's and aunt's house, we get a present. Last year I got candy. My uncles and aunts names are Uncle Lance and Aunt Shelly. They have two girls. Their names are Alyssa and Julia. They are older than me.
I really like getting presents, decorating the tree, and playing in the snow. That's why Christmas is a big hit for my family.
What I Do on Christmas
One of my favorite times of Christmas is decorating. I like decorating the tree, and I love putting on the lights. Putting on the lights is fun, but putting on the star is my favorite part of decorating the tree. I put a lot of decorations up, and it looks so pretty. That's why I love decorating the Christmas tree.
My favorite part of opening presents is that you get new toys. Then my mom takes pictures with us and our new toys. Then after she takes pictures, we play with our new toys. It is exciting when you open your present because you don't know what you're getting.
On Christmas we make a yummy dessert, and we eat it. First we have to put the ingredients in, and then when you get all the ingredients together, you cook it. It is really good. I wish we could make a thousand desserts!
That's what makes Christmas special for me.

Then my family goes to a party. We have a big feast there. Then we watch football and play Monopoly. I am usually the car. I never really get to go first. Usually my brother wins, and he gets to throw all the money in the air. Then it is time to go.
Then we open our presents in the morning at six o'clock. Last year I got a lot of Legos for Christmas. It was a Lego cop car and a fire truck. This year I want a Lego semi.
