Sorry I haven't made any Christmas posts on what I've gotten yet! I guess I've just been relaxing and watching a lot of TV recently (and possibly, most likely dying over the new Star Wars movie...)!;D
But here is a photostory about one of the main things I got...:)
I hurried to the place I had been told to go, hoping I wasn't too late. I always had bad time management, but this was an important day!
I rounded the corner and saw a trashed living room with torn wrapping paper and open boxes littering the ground. It was empty.
I looked around, scanning the room for anyone that lived here.
Sighing, I wandered to a chair and plopped down onto it. All of that running had left me out of breath.
I waited, bored out of my mind. Why was there no one there to meet me? It made me boil thinking about how rude my situation was. Finally, I heard the sound of voices coming toward me.
Two girls, one with freckles and light strawberry hair, and one with brown hair and freckles, walked into the room, complaining jokingly about having to clean the living room. I hopped onto my feet and smiled.
"Um..." the brunette began once she noticed me.
"Hi, I'm Emerson, but I would like it better if you would call me Emmy or Em. Emerson is just too long in my opinion," I greeted.
"Oh, well, I am Eden, and this is Nikki," Eden pointed to the girl next to her.
"Hi," Nikki said politely, then glanced at Eden. She whispered something in her ear, but I still heard it.
"I thought Mom said we weren't supposed to be expecting anyone this year."
Eden shook her head and smiled at me.
"So, you're our new sister then? Tell me about yourself," Eden prompted and I sat back down as she neared the other chair.
"Well, um...I like archaeology and hope to be an archaeologist when I grow up, my favorite color is purple..." I trailed off. What else was there?
"How old are you?" Eden inquired.
"Twelve," I replied.
"I'm fourteen," Eden said. "Do you like music at all?"
"I like a lot of pop music."
"I like a lot of pop music."
Nikki sat down and started grabbing the trash off the ground while Eden asked me questions.
"Frozen yogurt is my all time favorite dessert!" I cried and glanced at Nikki. "Hey, do you need some help?"
She looked up and nodded, a slight smile on her face.
I got out of the chair and grabbed some shreds of wrapping paper.
"So, you really like archaeology then?" Eden questioned and my heart sped up. Archaeology was one of my favorite subjects to talk about!
I hopped back onto the seat and grinned.
"Yes! I just think it's so cool and you would also get to travel, which sort of scares me, but I think I would love it. And the whole digging up the past and finding out more about what life was like for people back then is just beyond cool! I found this book at the library that explains everything about it and I really want to read it, even though reading isn't my favorite, I would so read that!" I chattered.
"That's so cool! You should talk to Caroline about history, if you like it so much. She's very knowledgeable about history, especially wars and other cultures and how they lived," Eden said. Nikki moved toward me, grabbing at paper. I looked down at the ground and smiled.
"Here, you missed this," I gestured to a scrap of paper and Nikki frowned.
"Hey! Do you have a frozen yogurt area nearby? We should go over there and keep talking. I've talked so much about myself while I haven't learned anything about you!" I offered and Eden nodded.
"Yeah! I'll go change and be right back," Eden hurried away and I smiled.
I turned around to Nikki and saw her stuffing the paper into a paper bag, grimacing.
"Um, here," I offered her the bits I had picked up, and she grabbed them out of my hand, purposefully avoiding my gaze.
I didn't like the vibes I was getting off of her, but I took a deep breath, rallying my courage.
"Hey, would you like to come with us?" I asked. I didn't want to be unfair and leave her behind, although she seemed to be very uninterested with me.
Nikki looked up at me and frowned.
"I'm not dressed, and I have work to do," she responded, spite edging her voice, even though I could tell she was trying to hold it back.
"Oh, okay," I mumbled, almost relieved she wasn't coming, but immediately felt guilty for feeling that way.
Eden ran to us, a coat in her hand.
"Here, Emmy, it's cold outside. Hopefully we are the same size!" she handed me the coat and I put it on. It fit perfectly.
"Thanks," I replied.
"That coat looks great on you," Eden complimented and I smiled.
"Oh, Nikki, do you want to come with us?" Eden asked over her shoulder.
"No! I have work to do!" Nikki shouted and the bag fell over and the paper came out. "Ugh!" Nikki kicked the bag and stormed off.
"Is she always like that?" I questioned, looking at her as she left.
"Not usually, no," Eden frowned.
I shrugged my new sister's strange behavior away and smiled at Eden.
"Well, more frozen yogurt for us!"
That's right! I got #47! She is so pretty and I love her so much! I didn't ask for an AG for Christmas, so I was surprised to find an American Girl shaped box under the tree.:) I got a lot of other fun things so I'll probably make a haul tomorrow or the next day.:) But, if you want to see what non-doll things I got, I will be making a haul on Drawn to Writing later today, so go check that out sometime soon!:)
Did you get a doll for Christmas? If so, which one?:)
