Shannon and Juliet and the Christmas Surprise

One day Shannon and his sister Juliet were setting up for Christmas. First they decorated the Christmas tree. They put decorations inside the house. They put their notes to Santa and cookies and milk. They put on lights and decorations on the outside of the house.
Then it was night time. They changed into their pajamas. They brushed their teeth. They said good night. They read a book and fell fast asleep.
The next morning they woke up. They brushed their teeth. They said good morning. They woke up their dad. They went down stairs.
They said, “What’s for breakfast mom?” She said, “Pancakes”.
They were excited. Shannon screamed that it was almost Christmas. Juliet said she wanted a pony for Christmas. It is almost Christmas. They loved it.
The day went by. They ate lunch. Juliet and Shannon wanted to go to their friend Nicky’s house. They all played together. They ate dinner. Then Juliet and Shannon went home.
When they got home they were tired. Before they asked for a snack they fell asleep. Their mom woke them up. They brushed their teeth, said good night and changed into their pajamas. They fell asleep.
The next morning it was Christmas Eve. They invited their friends and relatives. They all drank grape juice. They ate gingerbread cookies. Then they left.
But their friends didn’t leave. They were going to have a play date until the night. They were excited. They would make more gingerbread cookies together. They could check the chimney if Santa was coming.
They played a lot of things. It was great. It was the best Christmas ever. It was Christmas.
They stopped the play date. All of their relatives, friends, and neighbors were coming to their house. They were having a Christmas party. It was going to be fun! After the party, they would celebrate Christmas with their family.
They started the party. They danced, sang ate, and did many other things. It was the party of their lives. They had fun. Everyone left.
Now they would celebrate Christmas with their family. The children looked under their Christmas tree. They saw four presents! They opened them. They read the name tags and split them up between Shannon and Juliet.
Shannon opened one gift. He got a robot! Juliet opened her gift. She got a butter scotch play pony! Shannon then opened his other gift.
It was underwear! Juliet opened hers. She got a party dress! Shannon was mad. But there was one more gift for him.
Shannon said it was for him. Juliet said it was for her. They kept arguing. Then their dad opened it… It was a cute little doggy! It was for both of them.
They got a Christmas surprise! And it was a dog. They hugged their parents. They said thank you. Their parents said, “Your Welcome!”
Shannon and Juliet played with their dog. Shannon taught it magic tricks. Juliet played fetch with it. They had fun. Was it a boy or girl?
They decide on a girl. Her name was Christmas. They decided on that name because they got her on Christmas. They were excited to live with the dog. Juliet and her mother were excited to shop for the dog!
They invited everyone to see their dog. Everyone liked her. They asked Juliet and Shannon questions. The dog sat on a pillow. It looked beautiful.
Soon they all left. Someone asked if they could keep the dog. Shannon said no. So did Juliet. They had fun.

That was the best Christmas in Shannon and Juliet’s life. By the way Shannon is nine and Juliet is eight. They loved every Christmas. They lived merrily ever after. Merry Christmas!
