Hey, everyone in the world! This is Lorie Andrews!!!!
Do you like my amazing Christmas hat? (Actually, it’s a sock I borrowed from Mom, but hey, it works.) You see this Christmas tree, and all these presents? There’s just one problem. I haven’t put any presents under there, because I don’t have any money. 😦
I have an idea! I’m sure I could scrounge up something around the house to give to the other kids.
Hey, this should be great! I’m pretty sure this is just a junk box, anyway. No one will miss this stuff.
Wow, look at all this stuff!
The dolls will be great for Shayne and Lacie, and the rolling pin will be great for Maridelle! And I can give the paints to Chental!
“Umm, what are you doing?”
“Oh, uh, nothing, Bella!” I hope she can’t see all this stuff behind me.
“Why are you going through my Christmas presents for the family?”
“Oh, these are your presents for the family? I thought this was a junk box. I was looking for presents for the family since I don’t have any money. I’m sorry, Bella.”
“I forgive you. And hey, I have an idea!”
“You don’t have to spend money just to give the family presents. You could make stuff. You could write notes to each member of the family telling them why you appreciate them.”
“That’s a great idea! Why didn’t I think of that? I’m going to get some paper!”
“I’ll start with my sister.”
Don’t I have such nice handwriting? JK, no I don’t.
I’m so glad to have presents for my family!
I hope you all have a very merry Christmas! (Now I speak for all of us.) 🙂
