My Winter Break by Cole D.

My winter break was very long and exciting. On the 23rd, we went Christmas shopping with my grandfather, and got lots of toys. On Christmas Eve, we went to our Grandfather’s house and opened the presents. And later that night, we went to my OTHER grandparents’ house, and opened gifts there and had dinner. On the way back from dinner, I hid in my cousins car. They didn’t notice me until they were at their house, when I jumped out from behind the back seat and scared them all. It was really funny seeing their reactions. They called my dad and my brother, telling them to come to their house and pick me up. They did, and they were laughing, too. On the way home, we saw a car wreck. My dad checked it out, and came back 1 hour later when the police got there. Apparently the person who crashed was under the influence of alcohol. His car was destroyed, and my dad also said that the person had left the scene, which is illegal. If you don’t want to get grossed out, don’t read the next sentence. The man had left a trail of blood everywhere when he ran away into the woods. I got home at about 9:30. Then, at 10:00, we went to bed, exhausted. The next morning we woke up, and had to wait 3 hours for my dad to get up. When he got up, we ran downstairs and were amazed at the gifts we got. I had gotten a new iPhone! I was so excited, and I use it all the time now. After we were done at our dad’s house, we went to our mom’s house and opened gifts there, and got some really things. Then, at 12:00, my OTHER grandparent’s came to our house for lunch. My cousins are late a lot, so they got to my house at 2:00.When they got there, we all ate a huge lunch, then opened our other gifts. After we opened the gifts, we went to our basement and played until 3:00, when we came upstairs and went outside to play. Then they left at 6:00, and I took a nap because I was exhausted. I woke up at 7:00 the next morning and saw that my neighbors’ trampoline was up. So, I spent the whole day jumping on it. I also did on the 27th and 28th, From the 28th through 29th, I didn’t do much except for play with my new Christmas gifts. On New Year’s Eve, my dad had his friend over until 10:00. At 12:00, I watched the acorn drop. Then, we went to bed at 2:00 in the morning. On New Year’s Day, I jumped on the trampoline again, and had my friends over. On January 2nd, we made a movie and posted it to YouTube. It was really cool.

New Years Eve

New Years Eve,

A magical scene,

With family, friends, and joy.

Wishes handed out,

and no one can pout,

on this wonderful magical Eve.

All stay up ’till twelve,

pets and children as well,

to celebrate this time.

With adventures to unfold,

and a new year to control,

who could be sad now?

Well, we shall remember those gone,

and those who have died in a fight.

 We all shall be silent in memory of them,

Young and old, rich and poor.

A minute ’till twelve!

Everybody is swell

and sitting down at their seats.

Adults are eager,

with glasses a merry,

and children are ready,

with their souls wide open

for an wonderful 2012!!
