 The Historical Ornament!

By:  Annabelle 

                     When she was 4, Frankie remembered bringing home ornaments from kindergarten and hanging them on the tree. They were made out of a wooden star glued together from wooden sticks. All week she watched it hang from the tree in front of the window glistening with glitter.

As Frankie got older, she would still sit and watch the star sway on the tree. She had the finest tree she could think of and it was the same every year. The lights go first then the beads , never tinsel or plastic. The gleaming gold bell and then the glass star.

When Frankie was thirty-three her mother passed away, but she keep the tradition going and never changed the tree. She would hold her breath whenever she would go and grab the decorations out of the wardrobe. She has been living in her mom’s house until she decided it was time to move out , and she and her husband grabbed all the boxes and headed off.

Frankie set up her tree on the 4th of December and began decorating. She had to put up her wooden star. Her husband laughed at the star but then Frankie told him why it was so important and they both sat by the fire and made her mom’s famous hot cocoa. ¨Merry Christmas!¨ exclaimed Frankie to her husband.

Magic Mints

By Cade

 When Jack woke up, he sprinted for the Christmas tree, excited to see what his present from Santa was. When he opened his present, he found a package of Tic Tacs. Confused, he asked his mom if she knew anyone who had gotten MINTS for Christmas. She answered no honestly, and he decided that Santa wasn’t real. Who gives kids mints for Christmas? But, he didn’t know what was inside them.

    He popped one in his mouth, and went to his room to play Fortnite. But, he started to feel weird and had a hard time concentrating. He closed his eyes for a minute, and when he opened them he felt peculiar. Like he was holding the world up with his hand. Controlling it, telling it what to do.

    Suddenly, the lights went out in his room, and without having to even think, he blinked and the bulbs turned back on. Jack realized he left the Tic Tacs on the counter, so he went back to get them.

Freddy

  

       Once upon a time there lived a snowman named Freddy. Freddy is a pretty cool guy if you ask me, anyway Freddy went for a walk with his snow dog, Bob. A group of kids walked up to him and said,“Hi.” So Freddy replied and the kids continued walking with Freddy and Bob. Eventually Freddy and the kids saw a basketball court and they challenged Freddy to a basketball game, ”Hey Freddy do you want to play a basketball game with us?” And he said yes. So the kids and Freddy played a basketball game. They had a fun time and when it was over they went back to Freddy’s igloo and watched the PSBA (Professional Snowman Basketball Association),and it just so happened to be it was the PSBA Championship was a good game and the kids loved it. Before the kids left they asked if they could meet up at the court the next day.
