The Christmas Problem

Chapter One
One morning on December 11, 2004 Isabelle woke up early and realized she was going to her friend’s mom’s wedding! It started at seven o’clock. She put on her best clothes, brushed her hair, brushed her teeth, washed her face and put on her best shoes. Finally it was seven o’clock and her mommy and daddy were ready.

Chapter Two
Every day Isabelle had to do lots of exciting things, this was the best exciting  thing of all. Isabelle was still thinking about Christmas. The place is a block away  but dad always says we can not walk. You know your mom has a broken leg. The place was at the park.

Isabelle’s friend is named Peter. His mom is named Julie. Julie was marrying John, Isabelle’s uncle. Isabelle was so excited to go. The reason she had to go was she was the flower girl. A lot of cars were passing by. There must be people in the cars that are going to Julie’s wedding, Isabelle thought. “I like the dancing best”, said Isabelle’s father.

Chapter Three
Then they got there at eight o’clock. “You can’t come!”, said Peter. “Why?”, said Isabelle. “There’s good news and bad news”, said Peter. “The good news is Julie is still having her wedding. The bad news is she’s not having a party. It’s just Julie, John, me, and the judge.” “By the way, have a nice Christmas. Jerk!”

Isabelle said, “Me and my parents spent all that money on the presents. Who planned this thing, anyway?” “Me”, said Peter. Isabelle said, “It’s not nice to call someone ‘jerk’, anyway.” “Have a bad Christmas, Peter.”

Chapter Four
Soon Christmas Eve came. Peter felt sorry for Isabelle. He decided to give Isabelle a present and a sorry note. He went to her house and told Isabelle, “this is for you.” Isabelle opened the present. It was $30 so each person in the family would have ten dollars. Isabelle read the letter. After that she was overjoyed and hugged Peter.

They had a wonderful Christmas together.

THE END.

Skye: Thanksgiving

Turkey

One sunny day Albert Turkey was in his garden picking his vegetables for Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving was his favorite holiday but it was hunting season. That meant every turkey would have to hide or they were dinner for complete strangers. He was the smartest turkey. He knew good hiding places and could predict the future.

That evening he made a Thanksgiving feast and hid it in the place he was hiding for hunting season. That night as he ate his dinner he thought about his dead wife and how she died because of hunting season. As he lay in bed he heard screaming of other turkeys and bombs and bullets being blasted.

The next morning he found babies scattered all over the place wounded. His Thanksgiving plans were always ruined.[Okay it wasn’t the best holiday ever.] He always found a mess of blood and bones outside his door at Thanksgiving time.

During the day Albert thought of an idea. He was really smart so he could spell and build. He built a fence so people would keep out. Then, he wrote “Stay out.  From:the president”. After that, he taped it to the fence and no one was ever shot again. He had the best Thanksgivings ever and had his family come over for every one. He of course shared the idea with every turkey in the world.

THE END

About the drawing: The red blobs are the pools of blood. The little turkey crying is a wounded baby. On the lower-left is Albert’s hole. He doesn’t want anybody to go in it. The light bulb above Albert’s head is because he has a good idea. In the background is the idea he had of making a fence and putting a sign. So, it basically tells about my whole story.
