Got up at about 10:00. Ate breakfast and everything. Me and Emily went to Kerr and I got more goodies for my bathroom. Then Em took me to Shannon’s. At 2:00 her dad treated us to a movie. (Cut-Throat Island.) It was okay. I came home and packed for Dad’s. Man! I had a lot of crap! (Goodies.) Wendy, Eric, Tom, and Karen ate dinner and dessert with us. It was very tasty. Me and Becca watched “The Santa Claus.” I got in the shower and dried hair.
