I spent New Year's at Ryan's. I went over on Christmas Eve night. The day before Christmas Eve I was just trying out a new hairstyle so when my hair was half wet, I braided it.
This is how it turned out. Pretty curly but it gets less curly throughout the day. And if I had braided even amount of hair I think it would have turned out better...
Anyways, so the next morning I wake up and his mum cooked us breakfast.
The laid out table.
The Christmas tree with loads of pressies!
A full Scottish breakfast.
After breakfast, we started opening a few presents first. WHeeeeee
Then we have to get ready for church. Ryan came along with me. :) That is us all dressed up for church.
The roads around the University Avenue was sooo slippery its ridiculous! And the alley up to the chapel was a slope and going up was hard but coming down was even worse!!! Just kept slipping and all and I had to walk really really slow. Probably took half an hour to reach the car.... Anyways, after that, we went back to Ryan's house and open presents!!!!!
This was us in the process of opening presents.
More picture taking.
"Look at what you got!"
"Wow wow look at mine!"
This is after opening up all the presents and more camwhoring wuahahhaa.
