Matty's Christmas

Every Christmas and in the Christmas season I am gathering for Santa Claus and writing my list. I also like singing Christmas songs on the radio or singing with my voice. My favirit songs to sing on Christmas time are Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, Jingle Bells, We Wish You a Merry Christmas, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman, Deck The Halls, Christmas Eve Sarajevo 12/24, Silver Bells, Winter Wonderland, The SpongeBob Christmas Song, and lots more. I wrote my Christmas Wish List to Santa and I wanted a Roll of Paper, a lot of Money, a Bingo Game, Uno Cards, some Dominoes, a few toys, and some Walt Disney Movies.

During the Christmas season every year Dad promised me that we will go see Trans-Siberian Orchestra in concert. They do a good Christmas show. Last year, we saw them play in New Jersey at the IZOD Center because we missed them play at the Nassau Coliseum. We enjoyed the concert very much and Dad said we will see them again next year at the Nassau Coliseum. We finally went to the concert in Christmas 2009 with Kitty Kat (my cousin) and it was fun. I also sang along with the song and I was pretending that I was guitaring. The music they played there was like the music we hear on the radio. After the middle of the show I asked Dad if we could take a walk to get a refreshment and Dad got me a pretzel and a bottle of water and he bought their Christmas Cd. I liked the concert a lot. I think that was my very first time ever going to the Nassau Coliseum. I can't wait to go to the concert again next year because it reminds me of Christmas time.

On December 24th, we were getting ready for preperation for Santa's visit and Dad reminded me to leave out milk and cookies for Santa Claus so he would come. Then I went up to bed and I went upstairs to bed like Dad told me to. As I fell asleep I was dreaming of being an elf in Santa's workshop. When I was asleep Dad saw Santa come at around 2:15 in the morning. Dad had to leave water for the reindeer because they were thirsty. Santa thanked us for the cookies and milk.

On Christmas Day, I woke up feeling very happy that it was finally Christmas. I jumped out of bed and ran down the stairs to Grandma Bee and I said "Merry Christmas Grandma Bee!" and she was suprised. She said Merry Christmas back to me. As I went to the kitchen to see Mom I saw a note and it said that Santa came around 2:00 in the morning. Dad said he saw Santa come last night and he thanked us for the cookies and milk. Then he said that the reindeer were thirsty so he left out water for the reindeer. I was very suprised. I asked Dad how he saw Santa if he comes while you are sleeping. I saw the plate and it was empty. I knew now that he ate it all. A little bit later I opened presents with my Mom, Dad, and Grandma Bee. I got some legos and cars. This year I didn't get any rolls of paper like I asked for so I could complete my collection. I also got a new SpongeBob: The First 100 Episodes Box Set for Christmas. I got some Walt Disney movies and some pencils for my roll of paper. I got some puzzles and some new games. I got a lot of new sheets of paper. I got about 5,000 sheets of paper. I am sad that I didn't get any new dominoes. We went to Aunt Kathy's house. I got a lot of presents this Christmas. I had a lot of fun there! Then we went home to sing by the tree.

I had a very fun Christmas this year. I can't beleive that the year is almost over. I think I had a good Christmas! I think Christmas is one of the best holidays ever! The End.

The week of our computer crash and my new laptop

One day after I got home from school I saw a note on the computer and it said "Matty, do not use this computer". I was curious and sad. When I saw that it would take forever to finish loading. It was the same thing when we went to the concert. It was a very long time to wait for it to finish loading. I was so upset because all the things I saved on there were all cleared out.
A few days later, Dad bought 3 new computers. A new one for him, a new lap-top for me and a small one. We set up the computers for everyone, even Dad. I saw Mom setting them up and she was working hard to set it up. I had a new lap-top just for me. When I saw the screen I was very curious about the secret password and I didn't know what it was. So I called my Mom up on the phone to ask her the password. That was because I can watch a DVD on it and watch TV on it. She told me the password and now I know how to log on and play my games.
Now that I can watch a DVD on it, I still have to ask her about how to watch my show. Pretty soon I am going to have all my old programs back on my new lap-top. When I have all my pictures back and everything is back to normal I will be back to normal. I think it is better to be back to my blog posts. I hope I can get my music back before 2009 is over. I am glad to have all my folders back. Now my pictures will be what I want them to be. Now I have learned a lesson that if you lose something, you will find it every time or in your memory. The End.

Food I like to eat and the food I don't like

I have a lot of foods that I like to eat but the foods I don't like are tomatoes, broccoli, spinach, turkey, and cranberry sauce. Sometimes my mother says I am kind of a picky eater. I mostly don't like to eat ketchup on french fries, but I still like french fries. I like chicken nuggets though, but I only eat the edges of them because I don't like meat. I also don't like to eat salad or grilled cheese. I used to eat broccoli when I was about 2 to 3 years old. My favorite foods are macaroni and cheese, regular cheese pizza, mashed potatoes, french fries, boiled eggs and Thomas muffins. I like ice cream too! My favorite flavors of ice cream are vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, spumoni and pistachio. I like to go to Ralph's Italian Ices in the summer time and get Italian ices. My favorite flavors are rainbow and lemon-lime. I also like Carvel ice cream and get a scoop of ice cream with marshmallows with Dad. I remember in the summer I used to go Ice Screaming where Dad's high school friend Sandy used to work. Dad told me one day that he closed down his store because there wasn't a lot of customers coming there. Even though I don't like any tomatoes, like I don't like ketchup, I don't want too much tomato sauce on my pizza slice. It is like I don't like the marinara sauce with mozzarella sticks. I also don't like the cheese of the mozzarella sticks. I don't know why but I can't help it.

I like to celebrate birthdays and holidays by getting a cake at Dortoni's. I also like getting cakes at Friendly's for ice cream or birthdays. We also go to Friendly's for lunch or dinner and I usually get macaroni with cheese and a sundae for ice cream sometimes. We have gone to baseball games at Shea Stadium, which is now City Field and if I get hungry, Dad would get me pizza and french fries and a Carvel ice cream helmet cup and I enjoy it while I am watching the game with my Dad. Dad spends a fortune on the food because it's a stadium, right?

For lunch at school, Mom usually packs me a peanut-butter and cracker sandwich, a Capri-sun drink and a little snack. Do you know why there is no jelly in my sandwich? That is because I don't really like jelly because I haven't really tried it ever. My parents and I feel kind of sorry about that. I do really like peanut-butter that is artificially flavored but I liked Skippy too. I also like the strawberry and blueberry Pop-Tarts if I'm not a fussy eater. I also like Doritos for a snack if Dad buys it. I also like Fruit by the Foot, Fruit Roll-ups and Fruit Gushers for snacks too. When Dad takes me to the supermarket I pick out the items and snacks that I want for lunch and for home. Earlier today, we went to Friendly's for lunch. I got macaroni with cheese and french fries to go with it. When the waitress gave me my food I saw that there were pickles on it and I don't like pickles though so Dad took it off for me. By the way I ordered the macaroni and cheese without the pickles. While I was drinking Dad was having his Fribble shake and I got curious about it and the taste of it. When I tried it I liked it a lot. I had a good ice cream and we went home because it was a rainy day.

For breakfast, I like to eat cereal, pancakes, and french toast. I like to go to IHOP and get a Funny Face for pancakes if we missed breakfast. I also like to take the half and half packets if anyone orders coffee. My favorite pancakes are Aunt Jemima pancakes. I like to eat french toast and french toast sticks. My favorite cereals are Fruit Loops, Captain Crunch, and Honey Smacks.

I like to drink juices and some sodas. I like to drink Sierra Mist for my soda. I also like to drink Orange Soda, Orange Juice, Lemonade, and Fruit Punch. At Christmas time I like to drink the Jones Blueberry Pie, Cherry Pie, and Key Lime Pie sodas. Those are examples of what I like to drink.

Sometimes my Mom says that I am a fussy eater. I think I will get used to trying some new foods one day. That is the story about foods I like and don't like to eat. The End.
