Mr. Bryan

My Perfect Christmas

By Trinity Wellsandt

When I was 2, I thought Christmas was all about presents, but now that I am 8 I know what Christmas is about. Christmas is about caring for each other. If I could choose where to have Christmas, it would be in the best place in the world. It looks like this. It has a beautiful lake and a little cabin in the forest. And some beautiful trees. That is what I want it to look like. 

The people there are my mom and dad, sister, me, grandma, grandpa aunt uncle and my whole family. The friends I want to be with me are Ellie, Morgyn, Izabelle, Nina, Mr. Bryan, Rozroz, Piper, Wes and Joe, Rilee, Lyam, Serina, and Katy. That is the friends I want to be there.

My friends and I would play outside. Then play some board games then have dinner, and play with my dog. Then we would play with my dog. And play hot potato and musical chairs. Last but not least we would dance to Alexa. Then we would go to sleep. In the morning my friends would go home they would bring their presents if they wanted to play. That would be my perfect Christmas.

My Perfect Christmas

Morgyn Hutchens

Many people have different ideas of what a perfect Christmas would be like but here is mine. My Aunt and Uncle would be there because they live a long ways away in Seattle. Also my Mom and Dad would be there because they are my parents.

My Christmas would be in Hawaii because I love Hawaii. Ever since I went to Hawaii I have loved it. I would decorate a palm tree for a Christmas tree. We would also go surfing because my family and I love surfing. Next we would go snorkeling because we all like snorkeling. After all that fun we will go to a fancy restaurant. Then the next day we will all go home.

My Perfect Christmas

By Nina Jaech

Many people have ideas of Christmas. Here is mine. I would want Mr. Bryan to come over to my house because he is my favorite teacher.

I would want him to come at 5:14 because he has Mrs.Bryan as his wife. I would want it to be at my house because he is my teacher also he is a good teacher and a friend. He is also a nice person because he lets us stretch after a long time of writing for a long time. He is the most awesome thing ever.

I would want it to be at the woods in a beautiful pink cabin. Inside the house there would be a kitchen and 2 bedrooms in the cabin. There will be purple windows too. 

When Mr. Bryan arrived I gave him a present and he said thank you very much. I said you welcome. We ate turkey and corn on the cob and it was delicious and candy canes for desert. I would set the table and get fancy forks and knives and spoons and get ready for my guest which is Mr.Bryan. If he is amazed I will be so happy.

The people I invite are elderly. I would also play Fortnite or Call of Duty, or Apex. I will also be nice and not bad. 

It is fun at the cabin in the woods. The cabin is going to be new not old because it just got painted. I made it of new wood which is light brown not dark brown, the expensive kind. That is the most fantastic Christmas ever spending time with my family and friends.

My Christmas

By Dylan Brown

If I had a perfect Christmas, this would be it. I would have all my family over, a lot of friends. I would be introducing friends with family and family with friends. Like for example, I recently introduced my friend Luke to my Mom, and Caleb at the beginning of this year and he introduced his family to my family.

I would like it to be at Luke's house. We can ride motorcycles and even run motos! We can go trail riding, ride quads, and I can maybe bring my little fifty! (If my dad lets me) We could play Borderlands 3, Fortnite Chapter 2, Black Ops 4, and maybe we can try to take a picture of Santa! We can open presents and hopefully I get a NERF gun to shoot Luke with in the morning. After we open presents we would have lunch. I would have cereal for breakfast with some water in a brand new cup that I got from one of my presents. For lunch I would have some leftover turkey from Thanksgiving and a big cup of milk and some chips and sour cream and onion dip.

After all that we would play a nice match of football. I would have dad on my team against everyone else and it's tackle so my team is OP. Then we would play some music on the Alexa that Mom got 2 years ago. I would play Stars by Marshmello. I think dad would play In Color. My friend named Jake, I think he would play the NFL song on Apple music. My Mom would probably play a song called Bad Guy.

After that we would play with the stuff we got from Christmas. Hopefully I get a Tech Deck Rail, a Fortnite NERF Scar, a Fortnite NERF Tactical. After that we would play fun games like Monopoly, the Game of Life, Trouble, and then Pacman. Next we play some video games like Tom Clancy's: The Division, Fortnite chapter 2, Minecraft, Red Dead Redemption 2, and then Super Smash Bros.

Then we would go back home and open the other presents that I got. Then we would play musical chairs and we would have fun. Next we would play hot potato and we would have more fun. Then we would play duck duck goose and have even more fun! Jeez, everything in this paragraph is fun, but I love having fun! Then we would go to Brennan's house. We would play Fortnite, a lot of other board games and other stuff like that. After that we would go to Jonah's house and play Minecraft in real life. We would probably go find more bricks. First we drag the wagon down the creek. Next we would find the brick. Then we will load the brick in the wagon. Last we would drag the wagon up the creek and put the brick on the other bricks. We are slowly making a house by stacking the brick on top of each other. Next we would go get some water from the creek and then boil it. Now you're probably asking "How do you boil it next to all the trees."

I'll tell you how. So first, me Jonah, Caleb, and Braden, we built with the bricks over this metal pot and we put the water from the creek into the pot. Then we all scratch a rock up against this one poor stick and start a fire. That will be my perfect Christmas.

My Perfect Christmas

By Brennan

If I had a perfect Christmas this is what it would be like. I would wake up run as fast as I can down the stairs and eat breakfast really, really fast. Then I would look at the presents and ask my mom if I can open one of them and she would say yes. 

So I would open one of the presents and get what I want. All my best friends would be there Dylan, Luke, Jonah. I would want them to come because I like to be with other people on Christmas. We would go to Bluewood. We would go outside and make some snowmen and have a snowfight.

After everything that we've done me Dylan and Luke would go to Jonah's house. We would play Minecraft, Fortnite, and play with Legos.We would build trucks, airplanes and very cool Lamborghinis and Bugatti. 

Then after going to Jonah's house I would go home and play with all my new toys and games with Dylan and Luke. We would go to Dylan's house and play Fortnite then play Minecraft and go outside and play tag in the snow. After playing tag in the snow we would play football in the deep snow. I don't know how that is possible. Then after playing football in the deep snow we would go inside and drink hot cocoa. Then we would go to my house and we would go to my bedroom and play with all of my trucks, cars and monster trucks. After that really good, great, perfect day Dylan and Luke would go back to their house and I would go up stairs and go to my bedroom and get comfortable. That would be the best Christmas.

Have you ever had a perfect Christmas where

It was just you and your family for Christmas? It is going to be at my house because my nana lives at my UncleJeff's house. I wanted it to be at my house a long time but we went to my nana's house for Christmas. I had soup cake and other food. I love Christmas because you get gifts from your family. Christmas is good because everybody gets to have gifts. That is my perfect Christmas.

My Perfect Christmas

By Ellie Sabin

Have you ever wondered what a perfect Christmas is like well here you go.

For a perfect Christmas you need to stay somewhere. A hotel in Paris is perfect for me! Plus I love Paris. I will bring Rilee with me and bake cookies! And me and Rilee will open presents. Rilee will get a baked pie 

for her family. And I will get a hug from mom and that's the best present you can ever get! Then will sing until our lungs are dry, from low to 

high. We'll dance until our hips are sore. Next we will get our Christmas pajamas on and get to bed! That's my perfect Christmas!

My Perfect Christmas

By Katie Allen

This story is going to be about my perfect Christmas.

I want Christmas to be in Hawaii in a beach house because I love the beach. People I would invite would be my cousins and my mom and dad also my brother last but not least my aunts and uncles. When we finally got to presents I would tell the younger and older kids the younger kids get to open presents first they said quietly "yes". But before we open presents we did a prayer and ate dinner.Then we opened presents and played some family games like whoever can pull all the tissues out of the box and who ever can pick up the most tic tacs with tweezers.Then visited and said goodbye and giving hugs to the people that were leaving to go home.After that we will probably eat the rest of the leftovers from dinner and dessert well we were but everybody was stuffed so we sent home some dessert to people.Then we would bust out the toys again and play with them.Then we would watch a movie as a family and eat popcorn.

After that we would go to sleep and do a prayer.The next morning we would eat a special breakfast like bacon,eggs,toast,a glass of milk.Then we would play a game together as a family. 

That's what I think would be a perfect Christmas.

My Perfect Christmas

By Tyler Thornhill

Have you ever wondered what my perfect Christmas is? Well this is my perfect Christmas. My Mom would be there my cats Oreo, Jazzy, Tigger, Roxy, Patches, Boots, Mia, Gray, Chunky Monkey, and Pinky my brother Bobbee my sisters Abbee, Cleo, and Ashlynn. You may ask why those people? Because they're my family. My perfect Christmas would be at my house because I don't want to leave my beautiful home. Everything I would do is get presents for everyone and put out cookies and milk and carrots for Santa and his reindeer and bake a snack for Mr. Bryan's classroom. In conclusion, that's what I think a perfect Christmas is.

A Very Good Christmas

By Luke Collier

Many people want to have a very good Christmas but this is what a very good Christmas would be for me. You may be wondering who I would want to be there. This is who I want there. Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, both my uncles, my aunt, my great aunt, my great uncle. Also my cousins, my other grandma and grandpa, all the animals, and Dylan. Also you're probably wondering why I want them here and it's because I love them with all my heart and im not lying. Also if I want a very good Christmas I would want it to be in my house because I know super fun games for us. Speaking of games after we are done opening presents we can play pinball, have a Nerf war play hidenseek and most importantly spend time together. Also Christmas is not all about getting a present, it's about spending time with your family. That's a very good Christmas to me and having a good time.

The Perfect Christmas

By Izabelle Anderson

This is my perfect Christmas. My perfect Christmas would be at my Aunt and Uncle's house In Idaho. I would want to spend Christmas with them because they are funny and nice. The people who would be there would be all the cousins I have and my family and friends and my grandmas and grandpas. I would want these people to come because I don't really get to see some of them a lot. We would set up a wonderful tree and make a beautiful dinner and delicious too! We would make presents for each other and cookies and milk for old Saint Nickolas. We would also make presents for Santa Claus because he never gets a happy Christmas because he has to give presents and coal to every kid and some parents all around the world. So I want Santa Claus to be happy too because nobody ever stops and thinks, "hmm, should Santa get presents?" But they would just think, "No he'll be fine." That would probably make Santa really sad and those kids would probably get coal and they would just whine. That would be my perfect Christmas.

My Perfect Christmas

By Jacob Kaas

Have you wondered what people think about Christmas? Here is what I think Christmas should be like. Christmas should be like everyone from your family coming together and having a happy Christmas. On Christmas everything is calm when everyone is happy which everyone is on Christmas. This Christmas is going to be at my house. The reason why is because it will be freezing this winter and too cold for us to travel. This Christmas I want to see Papa Hauns very bad. I want to see him because I never get to see him because he lives all the way in Denmark. I hope that he can come to my house this Christmas.That is my perfect Christmas.

My Perfect Christmas 

by Wyatt McGanty

This would be the best Christmas, so grab some popcorn and start reading. It would start out like this it was the day before Christmas and we were at my house because it is comfy and warm. We were with my dad, brother, me, my dog, and my mom. My family were making gingerbread cookies and then because me and my brother got bored, we started decorating the tree. We heard Santa Claus reindeer but no it was just my brother pranking. So I went to my room and started playing on my phone and I went to Youtube to watch my favorite youtuber Hutts. Then my brother came to get me for the day before Christmas dinner.

I looked at all the food turkey and ham and gingerbread cookies and pumpkin cake with cherry ice cream and one more thing mashed potatoes. We started digging in. I was the first person done and I hid under the Christmas tree. When they called me I said I was in bed. I heard Santa and peaked and saw Santa Claus! I asked him for something for next year then I kept talking. He was just standing there but then he screamed so loud that it woke up my family. Then Santa Claus left. My family found me under the tree and said go to bed. I did and I wasn't happy because since I had seen Santa Claus that means no presents this year. So I just went to bed. 

When I woke up I went straight to the kitchen and saw Santa pancakes with red eggs and and ate my pancakes and egg. When I saw our presents I asked, "When are we opening the presents?"

My Mom said, "We are opening them at 11:00 now go wake up your brother."

I said, "OK, Bryce wake up! Bryce, WAKE UP!"

"OK, Wyatt, whats for breakfast?"

" Santa pancakes and eggs."

"Sounds good. Let's go watch Hutts. 

Then Mom called, "Time to open presents!" 

Everybody went, "Yay!" and we woke my dad up then we had a holly jolly Christmas.

My Perfect Christmas

By Gretchen House

My perfect Christmas was when I got a doll named Julia. I played with her and went to see my family in Pendleton. We had dinner at my aunt and uncle's. Then we went home and opened presents. Then we went to bed. It was the best Christmas because I got to spend time with family.

My Perfect Christmas 

By Lyam Donohue

The people I want to be at Christmas is my Nana my Mom and my Dad and my grandpa and my cousins.The time I open my presents is 8.00.Then it is time for my mom and my dad to open presents.Then we go to my nana's house and my cousins and I will open more presents.Then we eat a big feast.Then my dad and my mom are going to the bowling alley with my family.That is what my favorite Christmas is like. 

My Perfect Christmas

By Lazaro Guerrero

My Christmas will be jolly. But I have to stay home because my car will be frosty inside. We can go outside to play yeti tag. My brother and I and my mom and dad will be there. 

Then we can open our gifts. And I would eat turkey and mashed potatoes. Then we will all go to sleep. That's my perfect Christmas.

My Perfect Christmas

By Serina Hansen

This is my perfect Christmas. I want to spend time with my family. I want to play board games. The game that I want to play is Midnight. This is how to play. If you land on the clock you have to move 1 until you get back to 12. I would also like to play in the snow. Then we would eat dinner. Then we open our gifts. That is my perfect Christmas.

During the winter, my friend and I go snowboarding and we put our boards in bags and put Santa hats. We go out on the mountain as we carry bags with our snowboard in it. We would also lay in the snow. We gaze in the sky and talk about life. When we get too cold for the snow we go to the lodge and drink hot chocolate. We watch kids build snowman they keep all the accessories in bags. Once were warm we take in the mountain as the snowflake fall. During the winter it's always a good time to hit the mountain.

--Silas Czapka

One day a family went skiing and snowboarding. They arrived at the ski resort. They got in then went to the top of the hill and there's a snow mud crab eating a chocolate bunny babbit.

They went home on the day before Christmas Eve, they settled in and made Christmas cookies. The kids went to bed and they were talking about Christmas.

The morning came on Christmas Eve and they were excited. They went to play outside and they saw people sledding and making snow angels. (6 hours after eating and playing in the snow.)

It was Christmas the children ran down stairs and got their stockings and dumped them out. They were so excited. ~They opened there presents after every one was awake and they got really excited. There were 4 presents for each of them They opened them and got really excited. Then they found a candy cane for them on the kitchen table.

Then they lived happily ever after.

--Jersey Slack

I'm writing about what I did on a day I call popcorn day. Popcorn day is a day that I sit inside with my puppy and watch T.V while eating popcorn and drinking hot cocoa.

One popcorn day my dog, Snickers, and I were wearing santa hats and decided to watch the Cougars. The Cougars game paused and a commercial came on. The commercial was talking about adopting dogs. I decided to put my coat on and take my dog on a walk to go adopt two beautiful three-year-old puppies.

That is the story of my popcorn day. Maybe you should make a type of your own popcorn day! If you do, maybe you could get encouraged to do something too! I hope you enjoyed my story of one of my popcorn days!

"Dad I'm going to ski down Huckleberry". "Okay daughter" 10-year-old Cindy Lou Who ventured onto the lift unknowing what was about to happen. Halfway up the lift it started to snow. A snowflake fell on her nose instantly melting. Eventually she got off the lift and started skiing down, after a while she had forgotten where to go. Unfortunately, Cindy Lou Who went down Huck Finn instead, scared and starting to get cold she ventured into the trees. Looking for wolves, she found a glowing light and started walking towards it. Finding the words on it, it said: Santa's. Wondering what to do she poor it on hoping it would keep her warm, and in fact it did. Poof

" Where am I"? Cindy Lou Who asked.

"Well of course you're in the elves workshop, now is your name? " one of the elves said. Cindy Lou Who told the elf the whole story. 

"Wow you've been through a lot and I want to get you home for Christmas so we have some work to do" the elf said. 

Later the elf got started turning Cindy Lou Who into an elf". May I ask why you have to dress me up as an elf?" 

Cindy Lou Who said. "Well if Santa finds out he'll go crazy, because last time a child was at his factory and told all the kids what they were getting for Christmas so now he is kind of paranoid ". 

"Wow"!!! she said."Ya, and now you're ready to go and after a while I'll have to put you in a bag so Santa can't see you because if he sees you, he will know that you're Cindy Lou Who Who's Vill and, not an elf, so let's go "!!! 

They took off down the halls doing random elf like things, after a while the elf said "Get in this game and once you're in and I start walking don't make a sound". The bag was red velvet and said" Merry Christmas" in a cool font and it had a writhe, and mistletoe on it 

"Okay" hesitantly Cindy Lou Who got in the bag wondering what was going to happen next. The bag shut almost closed so that there was a small, hole she could breathe from the bag started rocking and she instantly knew she was very cold out and she was starting to shiver. She started to hear something ringing, it started to get closer and closer until she remembered the noise it was Rainer. 

"Plump"!!! she dropped on to something and then she felt like gravity was pushing her up, up, up. She dared to ask "Can I come out of the bag now?"

"Well now you can" the elf said. She opened up the bag and she saw all these twinkling stars, 

"Where are we"? Cindy Lou Who asked, "where are riding over crystal lake and almost to Who's Vill". She thought to herself about what Who's Vill". She thought to herself about what Who's Vill would look like, and when they got there it was unreal she saw the annual giant Christmas tree, and the new giant snowman.

"Okay kid heard your new present open it in the morning on Christmas day and don't let the Grinch steal your toys". "Bye" Cindy Lou Who said jumping out of the sleigh and straight down the chimney, and this is just the beginning of a long friendship.

Once there was a boy named John and a girl named Avery and they loved each other. They have three dogs named Snowflake, Ginger and Mistletoe, and for some odd reason Snowflake always liked to wear a santa hat. 

John and Avery didn't know but Snowflake is Santa's dog. John and Avery had a lot in common like their favorite day is popcorn day and they both love the Cougars. On Christmas Eve, everyone was excited, there were decorations everywhere and there was a mistletoe right by the front door.

At twelve o'clock all the dogs started to bark except Snowflake. Avery and John woke up and they didn't see anything but mistletoe over their head so they kissed and two years later they got married on Christmas Eve.

"Stubby, stop biting my ear!" yelled Frisky, who was a magical iron cat. 

"I'm so mad that dad won't let me sit on his lap." Stubby hissed back. 

Stubby and Friskey were on the couch eating treats. "I wish Sky would come home so we can watch the cat version of Snow White." 

"Frisky! We watched that yesterday!" Stubby cackled.

Sky walked through the door. "I'm home! --Also, I found Itchy hiding from a tree." Sky talked to her dad some, until he let her eat a bowl of whipped cream for National whipped cream day. 

It was also the other cat's birthday. Itchy's. Itchy as scared of everything. He was even scared of the couch. Sky gave him his present. It was a music player that played special music for cats. Itchy sat on a chair and listened. 

"Purrrrr" Itchy got comfortable, and went to sleep. He was never scared again.

-Skylar McCann

I woke up on Christmas morning. I was so excited to I threw off my covers and ran downstairs. We were having snow mud crab for dinner and for dessert chocolate bunny babit. I can't wait to have some chocolate babit. But first I want to open my presents.

*Thump thump thump* Ut oh, here comes my brother!

" Hey, no pushing" I yelled, 

My brother yelled back, "baby!!!" 

Then we ran to the christmas tree shredded the presents wrapping paper and opened the box I found skis and poles my brother found a snowboard!!! I saw more presents and we opened them and found wax. 

My mom gave me a candy cane and that reminds me I'm hungry, so I went over to the table and saw the mud crab. "Wait is that one moving" I said to myself, and then after that we spent the rest of the day getting pinched by the mud crabs.

Frostbite Man

Once upon a time I was hiking through the woods and I stumble upon a log.  When Silas woke up a magic hat lands on my head and the hat takes me to the winter wonderland.

I stay there and make friends and the friend names are Andrew, Nike, Byron, Ely and Silas and they showed me a magic ski lift and the owners of the lift were Peyton and Reece. At the top of the ski lift there was a mistletoe all around.   A big candy cane with a cabin in the back. I snowboard to the cabins and stay there and to go to the bathroom and I see the north star in the distance, sparkling brighter than them all.

When I woke up my face was in the snow and I had frost bite.  I look around and there is ice all around there were boots and snowboard for my friends too.  I invite them to go to Bluewood so they come down and we go to tamarack then triplenickle. Then I go down tamerake with Andrew and Ely. We take a shortcut and when we got in the short cut we crash but then we get our skies back on and finish the run.

Anthony Jonas

Once upon a time, there was a little ghost boy named Sawyer.  He was always sad because he didn't have anyone to celebrate Christmas with.  Sure, he had a hat on his head, his own personal ski lift and snowboard, but he was lonely.  His only memory of his family was a candy cane with mistletoe on top. Then he saw the North Star, the sign of hope and happiness and felt... happy. Even though Sawyer was lonely, he felt like he was surrounded by friends and family.  And from that point on, Sawyer felt happiest on Christmas.

--Reece Rodriguez

So one day in a normal world there were 3 kids and they played in the snow the day before Christmas eve and when they were done playing in the snow they went back inside and got ready for bed. They grabbed the cat to snuggle with when they go to bed and they grabbed blankets and pillows to sleep with. They went to their room and played with the fluffy cat for a bit and fell asleep.

The next day they woke up and opened 1 present and they got super cool toys one was skies and the other was a snowboard. So they went outside and played with the toys they got out of the presents. Then after a long long day they were so tired of playing in the snow they went back into their house and watched tv and went to bed.

When they woke up they were so excited because it was Christmas Day. They got to open up all of their Christmas gifts they got from Christmas. They had so much fun because they had lots of family there opening presents and eating Christmas cookies and having fun. Then they played with all of their toys they got. Some of the toys they got were toy robots and little water guns and you know pretty much all parents get their kids clothes!

Which are so annoying but now I get why they get us them so I don't care I need them sometimes. Anyways they played and played over and over again until they broke their toys but they lasted a long time. They played inside, outside, and all over town and had so much fun. Until all the toys got thrown away after one year but then another Christmas happened and the same thing happened over and over again until they want to stop having Christmas if they want to. I would not want to if I had to choose because I have fun every year having Christmas in my house with all of the treats and family.

Coffee on Christmas

By:Quincy Boggs

Today was the first time I have ever released my own song! I was really nervous but also super excited. My name is Yoo Nooyhun but my stage name is: Bright! I chose this name because I want to light up the stage every time I come on ! Although I can't stop thinking about my first show at a showcase tomorrow, I need to go to sleep.

4 MILLION!! That's how many likes I woke up to this morning on my new Christmas song "light up"! It's part of my new Christmas album that has 3 million listens on spotify, knowing this makes me even more excited to go on stage because now I know there is a higher chance someone will know my song! After performance: Now that my performance is done I can go back in the audience, but performing was so fun! And I hope it's the same every time! During the show I got to meet the members of: STAR, and I actually exchanged numbers with Joon Jungyo or JJ. WE have been texting since the showcase and he is really nice. I can remember 2 years ago when I was still a training to be an idol, I fell in love with their music! They were such an inspiration and still are. 

OMG! Today is Christmas and Jungyo has invited me to a coffee shop! I"ll have to sneak out though, for two reasons: 1. Crazy fans, and 2. Our companies are so against dating.

"Hey, Noohyun!" 

Called Jungyo when he saw me while I responded with:

"Hi, It's nice to see you!"

After the date: The date was AMAZING! The coffee was delicious and we talked forever! Definitely a Christmas to remember!

A Christmas Thing

Andrew Cook

It was the night before Christmas and something was in the air. Snow you might say, not much more. The parent said we shall eat first. That's what they did. The boys were so excited to open presents, they were shaking.

The first presents were small. There was a hot wheel for Andrew and for Ashton a dinosaur. 

With that done, there would be a surprise for them at home. 

When they got home they went inside and found a litter of puppies in the basement.  

Their momma had had them when they were away and that's all there was.

There was a group of kids in the living room, guessing who received presents at great Grandmas house. Then the kids heard a thump. Santa they thought.

No it was the parents with more presents!!

As soon as they got inside the kids whose names are Andrew and Ashton started jumping and asking, we can't wait for next for next Christmas.

Christmas on Snow Hill  

By William Cranmer

Hello I am Kyle, one Christmas we got early presents which were ski lift tickets, and we went skiing over our Christmas break.  

It started out as a regular ski trip with my friends, Eli, Dustin, and Blake. We were restless as we waited to get into the car. We put our skis in the back and piled in. My friends and I drove down the winding road to our favorite skiing place, Snow Hill. When we got there it was really snowy and foggy. Dustin said, '' I don't think we should ski.'' But the rest of us sneered,'' What you scared?'' We tumbled out, got our gear, and walked up to the lift. When we got to the lift we put on our skis and got on. The worker behind us yelled, '' Be careful! We've had some reports that people have been seeing crazy snowmen!'' We shrugged it off and started talking about school and cars. We thought we saw something in the trees but we couldn't tell. As we got off the ski lift, out of nowhere, an army of snowmen started throwing snowballs at us. Blake started skiing down the hill when a snowball hit him in the face! He veered off the path into a tree. I looked over to see Blake holding his ankle. I asked him if he was okay, as I dodged a snowball. I removed his skis and picked him up. I skied down the mountain with Blake on my back, my friends trailing behind me. Once we got to the cafeteria, Eli called an ambulance, and that's why we spent our Christmas in the hospital. 

Merry Christmas 

By:Madison Ortuno 

It was Christmas Eve morning and in the alley by the dumpster sat a little girl playing with sticks wishing that she had someone to celebrate Christmas with. Meanwhile, up on the highest hill in the biggest house there was a rich woman planning her Christmas bash . She had no heart and only thought of herself. As usual the little girl was wishing for someone to celebrate Christmas with. Up at the house the woman had a sudden urge to go help the little girl - which was weird because she did not know the girl, but she told her servant to go and fetch some pastries for the girl when she got in the car and went to the ally when she got there the little girl was asleep. She tapped the little girl and she woke up with a start. The woman not sure what to do. The little girl gave her a big smile and hug the woman asked her if she would go spent Christmas with her. The girl said yes. So they hopped in the car and drove off to the house on the hill. When they got there the girl was amazed at what she saw there was a giant dining room table with all the food she could ever want. The woman then showed her where she would be staying it was a huge room a grand bed. The next day the girl woke up to so many gifts there were toys and clothes the girl was certain that this was going to be the best Christmas ever.  She went downstairs to the kitchen to find the women there and she said "Merry Christmas" she said back "Merry Christmas to you to."

Hi my name is Zack. I'm sixteen years old and I live in Dayton Washington. Since some of my family lives far away they will be coming this evening for Christmas, so I'm gonna go skiing with my friends. My friends are Amelia, Dustin, Nathan, and Sarah.

Now my friends and I were going to BlueWood and I saw this thing in a tree, but I decided not to say anything. Then we were there. "Finally, that took so long", Dustin said. Then we got our stuff for skiing

It took a long time but we finally got on the ski lift. For some reason there was no other people around just workers. I mean, I guess it's Christmas but there was no one, I wonder why there open today. Then when Nathan, Sarah and I were on one chair on the lift Nathan said. "Hey what's that over there"? "Oh probably nothing,'' said Sarah."I do see something," I said. Then the thing jumped and hit us!

Now it seemed as the ski lift was falling. What had hit us and why? I would have come up to see if everyone was ok but I was stuck in some snow. Finally, I got out and yelled HELLO. I couldn't see anything but then I could picture out a dog, a St. Bernard. Maybe it could find my friends. Then he sniffed and barked at something. It was Dustin and I checked my pulse and well let's just say the cold got to him. Now there were many cops and dogs.

So they found my friends and they took us in the police car which drove us home and I saw it was on the news. I went to bed and thought what a Christmas catastrophe.

Once upon a time, there was a boy. The boy only wanted one thing for Christmas. He wanted a toy car. It was the only one of its kind. He wanted it so bad. But then the day before Christmas he gave up. He thought there's no way I'm going to be able to get that there only one in the world. So he decided on something else he decided he wanted a new pair of pants. The reason he wants pants instead of the car is because his family doesn't have much money. And they wouldn't be able to afford the toy. The boy and his family were eating Christmas dinner they were very happy. After they ate it was almost time for bed, but they had to do one thing before they all went to sleep. They had to go outside and light lanterns. As they watch the lanterns fly by they started to get tired. Now it's time for bed they all go to sleep. The next day the boy wakes up he is filled with joy as he runs down stairs and wakes up his family. They all go down and sit by the tree as the boy opens his present first, because he's the youngest. WOW HE GOT THE CAR. He was so happy, the rest of the children opened their presents while having a good time, the rest of Christmas was great BUT then something unspeakable happens. TO Be CoNtINuDE ...

Christmas Week

Emma Hays

There was one week left till Christmas, and most of the kids where at home with their parents. If you walked around a small town called Willowsberg you would find a store. If you walked three blocks past the store you would end up at a brown house. Inside of that brown house where four children and one adult. The children where Kammara, Luie, Jemma, with the adult named Antonio. If you walked two blocks past the brown house, you would end at a cement door. Behind that door there were four pets. Those pets didn't have names. They all had one thing in common... no family.

Three days had passed by and the kids were going to a holiday event supported by the animal shelter. All of the kids and animals fell asleep in their beds. The next day the children ran into the bus taking them to the park. Then Kammara had seen him, it was Archie the Great Dane from when she was younger. Luie met a cat and named her sugar. Jemma met a bulldog and named him Spike. Antonio met a cat Max. They finally had a friend for the holidays. They had played outside for a while and they had to go back. A couple around there late 20s came to one of the managers and asked if they could meet the children whom they loved. The couple said "We'll adopt them!". "We would like to keep the pets to." said the man". It was now Christmas day and they were sitting around the table as a family. 

Christmas Wish

LeAnne Leonard

Driving down the road in my new car. It should be thrilling but the future distracts me. 

Ever since my parents went MIA I've had to live with my grandma, but now I wish I had spent more time with her. The day I got my driver's license was probably the day we spent the most time together. I remember her saying," I'm so proud of you, Claire!"

After the funeral I went back to the house to pack up all of my things. But when I was about to leave, I saw my grandma's favorite gold necklace, so I quickly took it and ran to my Uncle's car. My uncle, Devan, is the nicest man ever but ever since grandma died he's been acting weird lately. I've tried to help him but he's always thinking about her. I do feel bad but I'm also worried about him.

Seven Days Later

"The snow is falling and friends are calling yoo- hoo" Sleigh Ride is playing and whenever I look outside it's snowing. Uncle Devan has been helping at the senior center and I've been putting up the decorations. Now I'm sitting out on the front porch waiting for him. I've been admiring how beautiful grandma's necklace is but then I get a text saying, "I won't be home for awhile."

Since he wasn't going to be home for awhile I went out into the field with the necklace. When I opened it up I found a picture of my parents in it. I was desperate for them so I threw the picture in the snow and wished that they'd come back. I knew it wouldn't work but suddenly there was a mist and within it I saw a glint of my parents. Now my Christmas Wish did come true.

Lost and found

by Jaycee Cox

I looked at my sister, Sushi, who was sleeping soundly. I didn't want to wake her up but I was afraid I'd have to. I padded over to her and prodded her with my paw. Her white tail flicked dismissively. "Yes?" she asked sleepily. "I'm going hunting" I said, flicking my ears right back at her. She obviously didn't notice. I sighed and headed outside. 

It was a nice morning; the sun was shining and a light snow was falling. The further I got from my cave, the deeper the snow got. I kept moving and suddenly sensed a presence... a brown horse with a worn halter came from the edge of the forest. I padded forward warily, but the horse bolted away. I decided to forget about the incident and keep going.

It had been about three hours and I hadn't seen a thing. As I waded through the snow, I couldn't help but realize I was lost. It was also getting dark, which really bothered me. You see, unlike most foxes my fur stays red through the winter, which makes me a sitting duck...  Suddenly I saw the horse from before, and at this point I was desperate. "Please help." I pleaded. The horse looked at me for a moment... "Very well."

As we walked through the forest, the horse, whose name I later learned was Ivy, Showed me the way. Eventually the cave was in sight. "Thank you, Ivy." I said. "No problem, uhhh..." "Pyro." I said. "No problem, Pyro!" she neighed. I dipped my head and walked towards my cave. "PYRO!' Sushi called as I stepped into my home. "You were almost late! I caught a grouse for Christmas dinner!" "Awesome." I said enthusiastically. "I bet you had fun!" she yipped. "Yeah.." I answered, grinning slightly.

My First Christmas!

Isaac Jaech

I will be talking about my first year in Dayton and how it was a Christmas miracle.

I will also be talking about how a beautiful family had to take in a kid who was a rude brat and did not listen because Isaac Jaech was a foster kid for his whole life - he is 12 now

    I was a foster kid who was to go to a group home if a family did not take me in. I had a brother, Justin Jeach jr., who was a very polite and respectful kid. One day this family took me in because they love kids and they did everything to help others. I was a very good challenge for them, but they never gave up. that is a Christmas miracle. I was a rude and a brat. I did not listen, but they would never let me go - then I  realized I was going to a group home if I did not get adopted.

      I will now be talking about the beautiful family who took me in near Christmas. I never had a Christmas with a family who actually cares for me and who took me in to live with a brother. I never had the best Christmas ever. Nothing will beat that day and no one will never take me away from this family and never will put me back as a foster kid. I love this family. They did the best to take me in. I was a hard egg to crack, but they did crack me.

That is my story of my first Christmas I hoped you enjoyed have a jolly Christmas.

The Cats that Saved Christmas

By, Gillian Markham

It was a cold and snowy day in the North Pole and Santa had just returned from Salinas, California with a load of Romaine lettuce for the reindeer. They loved the lettuce until they started to feel sick. Dasher was throwing up and Rudolph had the trots, so there was no way the reindeer could pull the sleigh for Santa. And tomorrow was Christmas! What was Santa to do?

Santa's elves had an idea. They went to the local animal shelter and adopted eight cats. One was fat, one was skinny, one was fluffy, and one was Minni, one had spots and one had stripes and one was black and one was white. It was a hassle but the elves got the cats to Santa's castle. They began to prepare the cats for the trip by sprinkling magic fairy dust on each of them so now they were able to fly, but all the cats wanted to do was chase birds and rodents. So the elves had another plan. They went to Mrs. Claus to borrow her prized Goose Bessie and had her leading the sleigh. Bessie loved mistletoe berries, so the elves hung mistletoe on Santa's fishing pole. Now they were ready!

"On Frosty, on Dutchess, on Kona, on Jessie. On Misty on Mint, on Snowflake, and Bessie". Declared Santa. And he cast out the mistletoe and Bessie chased the mistletoe and the cats chased Bessie. They lifted off into the night sky and delivered all the presents before dawn.

When they arrived home Mrs. Claus gave all the cats a bowl of buttermilk, and she gave Bessie all the mistletoe she could eat. They all had a merry Christmas and lived happily ever after.

But she was still thinking about the one thing that could make her Christmas good, and that was her family being together. That is the one thing she wanted. She thought to herself at least I have Emily to help me through the pain. Emily decided to give Kimberly her present to make her feel a little better.

It was Christmas day and Emily got   Kimberly's parents to be together for Christmas. Kimberly doesn't know what Emily did. Kimberly got up and went downstairs to find that her parents were sitting on the couch with Emily and so she went and opened her presents to find a Rottweiler puppy sitting there so she decided to name it Lily. Kimberly turned around and looked outside to see if it was snowing, it was.

That was the best Christmas ever.

How the Reindeer Lost Their Magic

Kaylee Coleman

Last night in the North Pole, all of Santa's reindeer were eating dinner and getting ready for bed. The elves were in Santa's house, busy making toys. An elf named Shelly was sneaking around making a machine to steal reindeer magic. She wants the magic for herself so she can fly.

She will wait until the reindeer fall asleep then she will use the machine to take all of their magic. She sucks all of the reindeer's magic out of their body's. This morning, the reindeer found themselves with no magic. They called for Santa and his elves for help.

The reindeer were scared that they will not be able to pull Santa's sled on Christmas Eve. They notice that one elf was missing. They searched the whole area but couldn't find the missing elf. The elves saw something in the sky, it was Shelly!  They knew she took the magic because elves don't fly.

The reindeer tracked her all day long and finally she got so tired that she flew back down and fell asleep. They cornered her and took her into the barn. She woke up and found herself trapped and everybody was surrounding her. Santa asked her how and why she took the magic. She said, "I snuck into the barn and took their magic because I just want to fly.'' She told them where the machine was and the reindeer got their magic back.

They gave Shelly another chance to be a good elf. Santa is getting ready for Christmas Eve. The elves are wrapping presents and the reindeer are eating. They are having a wonderful holiday.
