Waiting for Christmas

At 12:45am on December 21st...

Saraya: I thought Christmas trees were supposed to have lights!

Satchel: I thought Christmas trees were supposed to have presents!
Go back to bed!!!!

Mikayla: Why were you two up at 12:45am this morning?

Saraya: We were looking for Christmas.

Satchel: Yeah...under the tree.
Mikayla: It was too early in the morning. You woke a lot of us up!

Besides, Santa doesn't come until the morning of the 25th.

Mikayla: This is a calendar of days so you know when to look under the tree again.

It is called an Advent Calendar.

Satchel: Most of the windows are open!

Mikayla: That is because we are almost to Christmas day!

Saraya: Look at the pretty pictures behind these windows!

Satchel: The one for tomorrow is over here!

Saraya: Can we open it yet?

Mikayla: Not until tomorrow!

Patience is really important when it comes to waiting for Christmas!

Our friends up north sent a whisper down south

telling me that it was time for fall clothes.

I found a special fall outfit, and got my fall portrait taken.

Now what?

I can't sit around in a black shirt.

They stain.
Ah! Here is one of my normal outfits.

This is more me.

"Hey, Satchel!"

"Yeah, what?"

"Maybe if you smile sweetly and ask nicely,

you can get your clothes changed, too!

"What would I want to do that for?"

"It is fall, and the weather is getting cooler."

"Oh. I hadn't noticed."

"You can't keep wearing shorts!!!"

"Why not?"

"It is fall!!!!"
