Dear Yoko

Let me tell you about my family. I live with my mum, my dad and my big sister. We live in California. My mum’s name is Carmen. She’s Mexican and she speaks English and Spanish. She’s a Spanish teacher. She’s short and slim, she’s got long, brown hair and brown eyes. My dad’s name is David. He’s American. He’s tall and a little fat! He’s got short brown hair and blue eyes. He works in a bank. My sister Shania is 14 and she loves listening to music. She listens to music all the time! She’s got long brown hair and green eyes, like me. I’ve got long hair too. We’ve got a pet dog, Brandy. He’s black and white and very friendly.

We are three in my family. Me, my mum and dad. But we're just a teeny weeny bit of what I call as my family.
From my dad's side, my grandmum and grandpa, my cousin, my aunt and uncle. My cousin and me are of the same age, and we go to the same school. We usually have a great blast when we're together.
And from my mum's side, another set of funny grandparents, and three uncles and aunties, and of course, my sweet little cousins!!! They're just the best!!!
Well, life wouldn't be the same without them. In my opinion, it's better to have a cousin than a sibling. The longing you have to meet 'em, well, you can't get it from a sis. Cheers, everyone!!! ✌

She was born in a difficult family and now she is a success woman. She has a long black hair. For me, she looks like queen.

There're five people in my family,father ,mother and older sister.My father is 57 years old. He is a bit fat and has silver hair. He looks older than his real age bcoz of his silver hair. He always need to wear, coz he has poor eyes sight.Just like him, I also wear glasses . I got this gene from my dad, I guess. My mother is 55 years old and she is two years younger than my dad. Both of my parents are engineers. My dad is electrical engineer and my mom is civil engineer.So my dream is to become a civil structural enginner like my mom. She always help my school worls and always teach me whenever she has free time . Even she has to go to work everyday, she always keep our house clean and tidy.She is both a good wife and an ancridible mother.My older sister25 years old.She is educated from Hong Kong University.She is also my English teacher. But I don't like her teaching bcoz we always ended by fight whenever she tried to teach me. But my mom fouse her to teach me. What a bad luck for me. Among three of them, mom is the one who I love most. Shuuuuu......Don't tell my dad. It's a secret :)
