What time do you usually wake up on Christmas?
I wake up at about 8:00 A.M.
What do you do on Christmas Eve?
I usually go to my Christmas Eve service at my church. I am playing violin there this Christmas Eve.
What do you do on Boxing Day?
Uh……. What is Boxing Day? I don’t think that I celebrate that where I live.
What do you plan on giving your parents for Christmas this year?
Well, for my Dad, my Mom and I got him a Farmall (Tractor company) jacket, chocolate covered pretzels, and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. For my Mom, I got her a Burt’s Bee’s vanilla lip balm.
Do you watch any special movies on Christmas?
Well, maybe a few weeks before Christmas my family and I watch Christmas With The Kranks. 
Worst Christmas present you have ever received?
Um, actually, I haven’t gotten any bad presents.
Best present you gave?
Hmmm, I don’t think that my friend is reading this, but I am giving her a doughnut shaped notebook, and marker stamps. I think that is going to be the best present that I shall give. 
Best present you’ve received?
That would probably be my AG doll Izzy. I got her on Christmas. 
What did you do last Christmas?
Well, I opened presents and had special meals.
Best Christmas you’ve ever had?
Probably when I got my AG doll.

Bloggers Secret Santa / Noel White

Hello and Merry Christmas Everyone! I hope everyone got their wonderful presents!

christmas

Anyways, today’s post is Kate’s Bloggers Secret Santa! Read the rules………………………. here.

Done that? Good. So my person (why does that sound so weird?) is ……. Noel White!

On to those 500 words!

(for some reason, when I said “on to those 500 words”, I thought about horses galloping?)

Dear Noel White,

When I first got Kate’s email, I was worried. I didn’t know who you were, if you were likeable, if I would enjoy reading your posts, that stuff. I was glad when I found out you were likeable and your posts were amazing. Seriously dude, your posts are brilliant. The hard work you put in each post, it’s easy to see. Every post has effort and time spelled out into it. Plus, your post about your trip to Budapest! Perfection at it’s highest! The pictures were so beautiful, especially the food ones! XD

One of my favourite posts you’ve written is this one: Rainy Days

When I read it, I was shocked. Why, you ask? Because of how you’ve turned your memory into a beautiful piece of writing.

I remember walking in between the tall brick buildings and seeing the potted flowers, and stomping in puddles as the thunder and lightning crashed up above.

I remember laughing as I tried to keep up with my mom and older brother because I wanted to hide how nervous I was.

I also remember the sigh of relief that went through my body as we reached the familiar porch and wooden front door or our familiar house.

Can we just have a round of applause for that piece of writing?

Now, let’s fangirl over your blog name. “Just Another Nefelibata”. It’s such an original name, and such an unique one. If I hadn’t signed up for this, I wouldn’t have stumbled across your blog, and the word “Nefelibata”. Just hearing it in my brain makes me happy, and the meaning of the word does the same.

Nefelibata : A cloud walker. An individual who lives in the clouds of her own imagination or dreams. A person who doesn’t abide by the rules of society, literature, or art.

A question for you : How, how, did you get hold of such a majestic word? I’m actually jealous of your blog name. I wish I could steal it and make it mine. Sigh. But I won’t do that, because I’m nice (haha, great joke myself), like you.

So. What to write about now? Everything? I wish I could! Everything about you is perfect and I wish I could elaborate on every little word on your blog, but sadly I have a few words left, and I should use them wisely. So, we’ll talk about you… profile picture. I know, weird topic, but it is so pretty!

Noel White

I love how the sunlight falls on your hat, the way your hair is set, the blurry, dotted background, ugh, I love EVERYTHING about the picture. EVERYTHING.

So, that’s done. I am not going to say much more, as I only have 34 words left, but I would like to say (XD) : “Continue being a great blogger and post a whole bunch of great posts, please!” Also, : “Make more, more and more recipe posts! Please! Your last one was amazing.

And now, I have to go.

Merry Christmas Noel!

And there is it. 500 words, no more, no less. I hope y’all enjoyed reading that, especially you Noel! Keep on being a great blogger! See y’all after a while… I’m releasing another post today, watch out for that!
