My mom's side of the family and I get toegher at my aunts house every christmas eve. There are four kids and I am the oldest. In the room where we open presents, there are four corners. We each have our own corners (mine is underneeth the window seal). My nonnie always makes us new blankets for winter so the four of us lay them underneath us and make a wall of presents and surround ourselfs. After dinner we are eagerly excited to open our gifts. We dash down the long hall way and run to our corners. We wait for the adults to finish washing the dishes. Then we finaly are allowed to open the presents.
