Using specific memories from a family Christmas gathering, Rodriguez
It was close to dawn when they finished hunting. They went back to the lodge to clean off for dinner and bed. For dinner they had cream of mushroom soup. After dinner they went to bed. They loved the beds they said it was like laying on a nice fluffy cloud.
The children worked hard and eventually it paid off when they were able to afford extravagant materials and care for their own family, but they forgot to show their love and affection to the people who contributed to their success, their parents. At the end of the passage, Rodriguez purposely placed his realization of how far he had grown apart from his family, by mentioning his
Have you noticed anyone wearing a jewel with a blue ribbon? Or anyone that has a pin of a white cross with rainbow colored diamonds on it? These people are Masters of the Grand Cross of Color, and someday you may also earn that title. The Grand Cross of Color is one of the highest awards that the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls can give to its members and advisors with masonic affiliation.
Grace and I were breathing in her sweater and rolled all the windows down and the top roof window. Anyway…. We got the gas, life vest, the cooler, and most important thing of all the ………... FOOD. When we got everything from the car to take to the boat there was a surprise for us.
R is for Reserve Grand Champion Every year my family and I go to the Heart of Illinois (HOI) Fair. We normally enter in the Hobbies Department. What that is, is anyone can put a display together of an item on a board with a maximum amount of 10 items.
Every Christmas Eve my family reunites with a platter of food, all the children wear the pajamas and we all bake Christmas cookies and watch a Christmas, usually animated since the toddlers are watching. An hour before midnight, we organize the journey that Maria and Jose experienced
My father choose to be gone from December 13 until December 23 of 2014 that way he could be home for Christmas. Every night my father called and every night my mom and my three little sisters anxiously awaited by the phone in the kitchen along with my grandpa patiently waiting
When I was younger, I remember my mom and my aunties would always start to make tamales and hot chocolate 2 days before Christmas Eve. The making of the tamales would take up to 2 days because they have to make enough for everyone. My mom would wake up early to start making them, and like around noon my aunties would come over to help. When we would put up the tree for Christmas, my mom would make hot chocolate with marshmallows and I would get warm under my soft blanket. I would watch movies all day and stay in pajamas.
It starts with me, my brother Frank, and my cousin Silas sitting in our rented house in Captiva Island, Florida while our parents were out in the town. We had been sitting there all morning waiting for something to do. “I'm so bored, let's make some moves and find something to do,” I said. “Let's go down to the beach,” Frank suggests. “That's all we've done while we've been here let's do something different,” I said.
“Brrrring!” rang the alarm. I woke up, turned the alarm off, and buried myself under the covers. They were as soft as a kitten’s fur, and as warm as the air from a heater. After a long hug from my blanket, I finally got hot and went to use the bathroom.
It was December 25th, Christmas morning. Instead of waking up to my little brother’s excited smile, I was met with a face of sorrow and fear. Andrew told me he was scared and he did not know what to do and he heard Alex crying
Mom and dad, thank you for all of the things we have done in the past in winter. I have one particular memory. That is when I was very little. Around the age of four. One day, Courtnee, Celenia and I were all playing outside.
When I was around four years old, my parents wanted to surprise me with a special gift, which made that Christmas one to remember. I almost forgot that I had more gifts to unwrap because I was focused on discovering what my parents made me. I was not allowed to know what the special present was until Christmas day, no matter how many times I begged them to tell me. When I woke up Christmas morning, I was beaming with excitement, but I was still groggy like a bear waking up from hibernation.
On Christmas morning, my sister always wakes me up. Her anticipation of the day keeps her from snoozing, so she is always the first to rise. We are not allowed to come downstairs until my parents give us the “ok.” They would give us permission to come downstairs as soon as they were prepared with their recording devices and a cup of coffee. After given the clear, my sister and I would run downstairs to the living room to see what gifts Santa had left us.
