Laura M., age 13, North Carolina

Woke up at 7:30 and did presents. (Dad’s.) I got good stuff. Came home at about 12:00. Opened presents here, and got more good stuff! Then we did a big X-mas lunch. Around 3:00 we left for Tarboro and hung out with Mema and Pop. Oh yeah! Robert got me an 18-speed bike! Wow! Then we saw Mrs. Wilson for about 10 minutes. Me and Em went over to Grammy’s and did presents with the Mannings. We left there around 8:30. I got in a nice shower when me and Em got back. Then I dried my hair. Ed Halprin came over. I put all of my presents in their proper places and watched “Annie” with Em and Ed.
