Dear Diary,

Today is Christmas. Mom, dad, my sister, and me rushed to our stockings! In my stocking there was a super cool skateboard! In my dad's stocking there were two weights! My dad was so excited! In my mom's stocking there were three bottles for Emma, and five soap bars. In Emma's stocking there were two pacifiers and four boxes of baby crackers. Everyone was so happy!

For breakfast I had eggs, and ham. Emma had mashed apple. Thought it looked yuck! After breakfast Emma and I watched TV.

That night Emma had a accident in her bed. My mom and I had to wake up in the middle of the night to clean it up! That is why I don't like her.
