Christmas time is here!

Christmas has always been my favorite time of year.

Mostly due to my imagination being filled with physical trinkets that would enhance the viewing pleasure of such television shows at Masters of the Universe, Thundercats, and Ninja Turtles. But what do you expect from an 8 year old that always wants to create his own universe, and play out his wildest dreams. Is that not an amazing Christmas Gift?

Thanks Mom.

In reality, food and family was a close first. Oh what a joy, not only to spend time with Mom & Mom Mom, but uncles, aunts, cousins and various others from our extended family. Even the joy of my puppy running around chasing me on the furniture put a smile on my face.

Thanks Freeway.

Now, that I am older, the toys have diminished from twenty to two. My clothes have increased in style. Necessities of things for the apartment have increased. And, you can never go wrong with a video game... But the magic is different now. I truly focus more of my time, focusing on the History of Jesus, and creating a beautiful experience with loved ones. This year really took the Cake.

Thanks God.

Let me give a brief Run down of Christmas Day:

*• Christmas Eve was spent with Omar Ramone and his family. It's always feels good to be around them. The Downside, the family ate all the food before we got there! We was only an hour late, but my stomach couldn't stay and smile for another hour or so. I had Burger King. It was good! We were then invited to Omar's Friend Pajama Party...Whichh entailed, a straight couple and there children chilling in the house playing spades. Not what I expected!

*• Christmas Morning was spent with my "Handsome" Boyfriend! This was something I really wanted to do, wake up with him by my side. It felt really good, and I was very happy he was there. We got up around 8:00am to open gifts, just me and him. Please check out the photos above.

*• We then headed out to eat Breakfast at a Chuch near Fuzzy's House. While the eggs were quite wet, the rest of the bacon, sausages, and hashbrowns weren't bad at all. We were around a lot of older people, some down and out, but it felt good to be around them nonetheless. They gave out deodorant, shaving cream, and lotions... and even raffled off bikes! I didn't win a bike.

*• We then headed to Fuzzy's house to spend time with his family. One word: Drama. LOL. I'll let Fuzzy tell that story!

* Once we dashed out of there, we went back to my house and played a few video games. Calvin & Jermaine stopped by. It was great seeing them!

*• My Family was having dinner at my Granmother's house (who lives upstairs) and me and Fuzzy ended up there, as we all open presents, shared stories, and chowed down on German Chocolate Cake! I really enjoyed my family this year, and they really made me and Fuzzy feel comfortable.

*• Even though we were quite tired, we headed over to My Omar's House. We all exchanged gifts, and just relaxed in the bed talking and playing 20 Questions. Around 11pm we headed home, after a wonderful Christmas Day!

*• The Day After, we all went to Ruby Tuesday's to see Dreams Girls! What an amazing movie! Jennifer Hudson was great! Please check out the photos above.

Overall, I really felt an immense feeling of "family" from my friends to my relatives, and there is nothing more I could have asked for!

Yea Christmas was really Good wasn't it? I enjoyed myself at Omar's Aunts house, I wish I could of stayed to enjoy the family more... I was finally getting into the Christmas spirit! Next day Came and I opened presents with my Shawn and I was gettin teary Eyed cause that was the first christmas in two years that felt normal. Fast forward to my house and the DRAMA!

Unexpected family came up and presents for them were not in my budget. I went and purchaced gifts but one of them was unfortunately thrown away. So, On Christmas day, NOTHING was open so I found a comicbook at quickcheck for my 10 y/o nephew. My brother and His wife got a double feature DVD and the nephew got the comicbook. The wife rejected both gifts in such a rude manor I had to leave the room to keep from slapping her out of the house! There is a way of speaking to people and the way she handled it was wrong!
I just couldn't believe she came out her mouth with that in front of me! The rest of the day made up for it though... Great Christmas

P.S. That heffa aint gettin nothing for Christmas next year!!!

wow Shawn, sounds like your Christmas was busy as ever! I'm glad you had so much fun and was surrounded by so much family and love.

This Christmas was rough for me (first one since Mom's death), but family came through in the end to make it enjoyable. New Years was a lot of fun, but in a 'grown and sexy' kind of ways. I am now a fan of Martin & Rossi Asti champagne and "Dreamgirls"! A wonderful combo!

I hope the new year brings you peace, prosperity and all that other mushy stuff. PEACE!
