Christmas

"No, no, no, no!" Stacey groaned as she flipped through her grandmother's recipe book.

"What's wrong Stace?" Charlotte asked.

"It's not here!" She shouted. Stacey was so panicked that she hadn't noticed her sister enter the room.

"What are you looking for?"

Stacey collapsed on the ground in defeat. "Nothing." She said in a dull tune of disappointment. Charlotte reached down and brushed a lock of her sister's dark brown hair out of Stacey's face.

"Stacey, you can trust me. We're sisters, we tell each other everything."

"Does that mean you'll tell me what you got me for Christmas this year?"

"Not a chance!" Charlotte said teasing her. "Come on, what's all this about?"

Stacy sighed and gave up her secret. "You know how when we were younger, how mom would make those gingerbread cookies that grandma used to make for her?"

"The ones we would put candy cane sprinkles on?"

She nodded. "I wanted to surprise you with them. I know how hard it was for you when mom passed away. I was going to wait for you to leave for school, but I realized I didn't know the recipe. So I looked through mom's old recipe book, but it's not in there."

Charlotte smiled and leaned down to give her sister a hug. "Stacy, you are an amazing sister, but you work too hard."

Suddenly an idea popped into Charlotte's head. "I used to watch mom bake those cookies every year. How about when I get home from school we try to do them from memory?"

"Really? What if we mess up?" Stacy asked, furrowing her eyebrows.

"Then we'll try again. We are making those cookies!"

Stacy giggled at her sister's enthusiasm.


Charlotte came home to find her sister setting out baking supplies. Stacy was covered in flour from head to toe, and was currently wrestling with a giant bag of flour.

"What happened here?" She smirked, trying to hold back her laughter.

"I was setting everything out, when the four decided to fight back." Stacy said, wrinkling her nose while trying to brush off some of the flour.

"Alright, let's start baking."


Several hours had passed before they finally managed to make good cookies. The first batch was a disaster because they accidentally used salt instead of sugar. The second batch came out burnt. But the last batch was perfect.


The End but there isn't enough letters so:


Thanks everyone! I hope you have a happy holidays. Here's a few songs to fill in the rest.


Jingle bells, jingle bells

Jingle all the way

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one horse open sleigh

Hey, jingle bells, jingle bells

Jingle all the way

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one horse open sleigh

Jingle bells, jingle bells

Jingle all the way

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one horse open sleigh

Hey, jingle bells, jingle bells

Jingle all the way

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one horse open sleigh

It's Christmas

Hey, jingle bells, jingle bells

Jingle all the way

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one horse open sleigh

Hey, jingle bells, jingle bells

Jingle all the way

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one horse open sleigh

It's Christmas


Hark how the bells,

Sweet silver bells,

All seem to say,

Throw cares away

Christmas is here,

Bringing good cheer,

To young and old,

Meek and the bold.

Ding dong ding dong

That is their song

With joyful ring

All caroling.

One seems to hear

Words of good cheer

From everywhere

Filling the air.

Oh how they pound,

Raising the sound,

O'er hill and dale,

Telling their tale.

Gaily they ring

While people sing

Songs of good cheer,

Christmas is here.

Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas,

Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas.

On on they send,

On without end,

Their joyful tone

To every home.

Ding dong ding dong

Ding dong ding dong

Hark how the bells,

Sweet silver bells,

All seem to say,

Throw cares away

(We will throw cares away)

Christmas is here,

Bringing good cheer,

To young and old,

Meek and the bold.

(Bringing cheer to the young and old)

Oh how they pound,

Raising the sound,

O'er hill and dale,

Telling their tale.

Gaily they ring

While people sing

Songs of good cheer,

Christmas is here.

Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas,

Merry Christmas

Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas,

Merry Christmas

On on they send,

On without end,

Their joyful tone

To every home.


Out of all the reindeers you know you're the mastermind

Run, run Rudolph, Randalph ain't too far behind

Run, run Rudolph, Santa's got to make it to town

Santa make him hurry, tell him he can take the freeway down

Run, run Rudolph 'cause I'm reelin' like a merry-go-round

Said Santa to a boy child what have you been longing for?

All I want for Christmas is a rock and roll electric guitar

And then away went Rudolph a whizzing like a shooting star

Run, run Rudolph, Santa's got to make it to town

Santa make him hurry, tell him he can take the freeway down

Run, run Rudolph, reeling like a merry-go-round

Run, run Rudolph, Santa's got to make it to town

Santa make him hurry, tell him he can take the freeway down

Run, run Rudolph, reeling like a merry-go-round

Said Santa to a girl child what would please you most to get?

A little baby doll that can cry, sleep, drink and wet

And then away went Rudolph a whizzing like a Saber jet

Run, run Rudolph, Santa's got to make it to town

Santa make him hurry, tell him he can take the freeway down

Run, run Rudolph, I'm reelin' like a merry-go-round


Ah, aha

Ooh

Oh

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart

But the very next day you gave it away

This year, to save me from tears

I'll give it to someone special

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart

But the very next day, you gave it away (you gave it away)

This year, to save me from tears

I'll give it to someone special (special)

Once bitten and twice shy

I keep my distance

But you still catch my eye

Tell me, baby

Do you recognize me?

Well, it's been a year

It doesn't surprise me

(Happy Christmas) I wrapped it up and sent it

With a note saying, "I love you, " I meant it

Now, I know what a fool I've been

But if you kissed me now

I know you'd fool me again

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart

But the very next day, you gave it away (you gave it away)

This year, to save me from tears

I'll give it to someone special (special)

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart

But the very next day, you gave it away

This year, to save me from tears

I'll give it to someone special (special, oh)

Oh, my baby

(Ooh)

A crowded room, friends with tired eyes

I'm hiding from you, and your soul of ice

My God, I thought you were someone to rely on

Me? I guess I was a shoulder to cry on

A face on a lover with a fire in his heart

A man under cover but you tore me apart, ooh

Now, I've found a real love you'll never fool me again

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart

But the very next day, you gave it away (you gave it away)

This year, to save me from tears

I'll give it to someone special (special)

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart

But the very next day, (you gave) you gave it away (me away)

This year (ohh), to save me from tears

I'll give it to someone special (special)

Face on a lover with a fire in his heart (I gave you my heart)

A man under cover but you tore him apart

Maybe next year, I'll give it to someone

I'll give it to someone special (special, someone)
