Merry Christmas, everybody, and a happy new year!! :) 
I still need to get Christmas gifts for my family yet, but this weekend will be the time to do that. Also, we need to finish decorating at our house. I need to put up my Christmas stocking yet! To me, it does not matter where you go for Christmas or what you do. What matters is that you have fun at Christmas. At our church, we are sending some cookies to the children in Nigeria who won't have much of a Christmas this year, and we feel delighted to know that we will probably bring smiles on their faces. Isn't that what the Christmas spirit is about?
I have one last exam tomorrow at three, and then my last final next Tuesday, the day I should leave for home. I'm pretty excited. I get to spend more time with my family and animals, and hopefully get both some reading and writing done! I plan to buy a few books of the "Twilight" saga by Stephenie Meyer, and read those along with a couple Steeple Hill December books. I'm writing two different stories right now. I was writing one, but when I started to write the ending of it on another Word document, I sort of lost interest with writing it. I was determined that the same thing wasn't going to happen with the second book. This book is called "The Revival of Breakups." I know that might sound like a weird title for a Christmas love story, but it truly is about breakups. The book is about a girl named Samantha Miller who comes home for a six week Christmas vacation, and with a car engine that needs repair. She comes to her ex-boyfriend Jacob Harper's farm, and demands that she needs the thousand dollar engagement ring she'd given back to him two years before, so she could pay off her car engine. Jacob and Samantha argue for most of the book, but both Jacob's family and Samantha's family make this stubborn couple realize that they are still in love with each other, and that God has brought them together for a special reason. Samantha is told by the Harper family that in order to get back her engagement ring, she must do some work with them on the farm. This turns out to be a hideous time for Jacob, because he keeps losing patience with her! 
Doesn't that sound like an interesting story? I hope I actually finish BOTH stories! 
In the mean time, I'm preparing to leave for Christmas break, and this post will probably be my last one before the end of Christmas vacation, or at least before Christmas. So, everybody, have a wonderful and blessed holiday season! Don't eat too much candy, and make sure to help out wherever you can with Christmas dinner and other delights. 
God bless always! :)
