Better Essays
The only thing that was life changing is that my dad changed jobs from working in Iowa city and being gone all the time, to switching jobs in Clarence so I’d see him more. When I was littler, me and my brothers would get up super early Christmas morning so that we could hopefully open all the presents that were underneath the tree.

I grabbed the present read the name and put it in its designated place, Owens was to the left of the tree mine was to the right and Nathans was to the middle of it. We sat the for another hour sorting presents. We looked for who had the biggest which was Owen, I had the most so I was the best. Nathan had littler present but nevertheless near the same amount as me. After we were tired again and it was around 4:30 we headed back to our rooms with our candy so no one else could take some out of ours to eat it.
I soon fell into a light sleep after the sugar high went away, me and my brother would wait until we heard our parents start to wake up or my dads alarm go off, since it was christmas my dad wouldn’t have to go to work until 8 o’clock. We heard Nate get up to go get his stocking, he always woke up later than me and Owen we usually kidnap something small out of his stocking to eat like a chocolate santa or some peeps. He went back to his room we could tell the difference between him and our parents, is he was much light his footsteps were also quieter. We finally heard my mom get up to go make coffee, we all hopped out of bed to go pester her if we could open
