Friday in class, we watched a thigh-slapping movie. It was called the Santa Clause movie about a boy named Charlie, who always thinks his dad is Santa who flies all over the world delivering gifts to kids on Christmas eve. Finally, they made a decision that he’s not Santa but later he had a beard and gained weight and pretended to be Santa Clause.
Saturday, I went horseback riding. I did great. I also checked out the rest of Santa Clause movie and in the end, he really was Santa Clause. Ho ho ho Merry Christmas! It was so funny because the dad was so talkative.
Sunday, I went to the Zoo. Michelle and I headed off to the bus ride and saw giraffes, hippos, birds, lions, camels, rhinos, zebras, koalas, and condors. The driver did not mention how to tell the difference between Asian and African elephants.
At 5:15 pm, my dad and I drove to the California Center of the Arts to see Elle, my dance friend [and teacher] and others perform The Nutcracker. Going to and from the theater was like Hogwarts, because it was an alley of walkways, and I walked quickly. We got to the lobby and our seats on our tickets were K33-34. First we went to the 2nd floor but the seats were at the bottom floor. So, we went down 2 floors and the first room had stairs and the next room had our seats. Elle’s dad came by to sit with us in that row. There were 8 levels for other people to sit and enjoy seeing the Nutcracker. Elle was leader of the snow fairies. The Nutcracker did not have any solos. It was only Clara, Elle, the group, sugar plum fairy and her partner. It was like angels singing at Christmastime in the church. It was so inspiring because Elle’s dad sat next to my dad and me. I thought, “Well done, well done!”
My favorite part of the weekend was The Nutcracker because it was a Christmas spectacular! I did not have a least favorite part because overall, it was the best weekend ever! Tomorrow is Hanukkah so I want a toy with legs like a jellyfish or 5 gold rings for my room. Next weekend, I want to either get my powerpoint ready for my graduation, or go see holiday lights near LCC because it will be the best Pre Holiday weekend ever!!!
