Hello friends! We’re slowly inching towards Christmas. Today’s photostory for you is about the Stones selecting their secret Santa names. Enjoy!
“Kids!” Mommy called in a singsong voice. “Come in the living room! We’re going to pick Secret Santa names today.”
It didn’t take very long for all of my siblings to rush into the living room.
“Now, this year we’re going to get Secret Santa gifts for everyone. You can make or buy something for whoever you choose, but make sure it’s something your sibling will really enjoy! Daddy and I aren’t buying each of you kids a gift this year, so get something nice!” Mommy explained, as she passed around the bag of names.
Once everyone had their name, Mommy added, “Remember not to tell anyone who you got! This is a Secret Santa after all. If you aren’t sure what to get, just let me know.”
“Question,” Cherry asked. “What happens if one draws their own name?”
“Grammar, Cherry,” Mommy sighed. “Everyone put your name back. We’re going to draw again.”
I picked my new name. “Cherry?” I thought. “I have no idea what to get her.”
Later that afternoon, Chip and I were discussing the Secret Santa exchange.
“I got Cali,” Chip announced.
“Do you know what you’re getting her?” I asked.
“Yeah. I found this really cool eyelash sweater I think she’ll like. Who’d you get?” Chip replied.
“Cherry. I have no idea what to get for her,” I sighed.
“I’m sure you’ll think of something. Cherry would be happy with almost anything,” Chip reassured.
“Yeah, that’s true,” I sighed.
I hope I can find something for Cherry! Do any of you have ideas?
