Christmas!!!

With school almost over, and Christmas so close I have practically been dancing place to place. I just wanted to talk a little bit about what Christmas means to me. In a few words Christmas means Jesus, summer, swimming, family,long nights, no worries. My family always goes up to the north island and we stay in Gisborne with my Nana and Grandpa. We stay there for 2-3 weeks, long enough to watch the new years fireworks as well as have Christmas. We literally just swim the whole time and with all my family there, there is never a dull moment. We haven't been to Gisborne for Christmas for almost 4 years, so that is getting me more and more excited everyday. I can't wait to see everyone, go shopping, and die of heat :P.
I'm also excited to give presents this year (I will do pictures of my wrapping) because I have more money now, and can give some great presents to everyone. Before I am asked, I cannot decide whether I love giving or receiving presents more, for me both ways is receiving something, but one is physical, and one is emotional. Watching people's faces as they open my present is so much fun. You, hopefully, get to see a joyful reaction, and know that all your hard work has paid off. 
I really want to give money to a charity this year, because if I can afford to buy Christmas presents for all my family, I can afford to give money to charity as well. That's sort of my motto, and whenever i am facing greed, which happens a lot, I remember who needs it more, and it's better to know that my money is going to a good cause rather than my wardrobe.
Lastly I want to remind my family of the true meaning of Christmas which is Jesus Christ, I want to tell the younger children all the things that truly matter, because it would be so rewarding to see them grow up into good strong Christian, whose faith has just grown so strongly into something extra powerful. 


As I said earlier in the post, I am going to do a post on the way I am decorating my presents this year, and may also do my Christmas list.

Queenstown - Winter Wonderland

Just when I thought I had said goodbye to winter, and was fully ready for summer, our trip to Queenstown almost made me change my mind!...
