Little kids make Christmas fun. I wonder if we could rent one for the holidays.
I will pretend to be heather.
Merry Christmas honey!
School is out and there are two days until Christmas. Mom left a note saying I can put up the tree if i want. I drag the tree out of the basement and stand it in the driveway so i can sweep the dust and cobwebs of with a broom. All i have to do is hang the ornaments.
I bundle up in geeky snow clothes, wrap a scarf around my head, and plunge into a snow drift. The back yard is gorgeous. The trees and bushes are all wrapped in ice, reflecting sunlight into something powerful.
We slept in till noon on Christmas. I give my mom a black sweater and Dad a CD with sixties hits. They give me a handful of gift certificates, a TV for my room, ice skates, and a sketch pad with charcoal pencils.
