I let out a long yawn as I opened my eyes. I turned over on my side and looked at my calendar. It was December 6th, which meant today was St.Nicholas Day! I hopped out of my bed and ran across the room to wake my sister Addy. We silently tip toed into our living room. We didn’t want to wake anybody by turning the lights on so Addy lit a candle. I turned on the lights on our Christmas Tree. Honey, our golden retriever dog came barreling into to the living room. He had something in his stocking too!
Addy grabbed our stockings down from the shelf.
We opened our stockings slowly. Addy’s stocking had the Grace book, a piece of chocolate, a candy cane, and a little plush bear.
My stocking had the Apples to Apples game, a piece of chocolate, a candy cane, and a Molly Mini Doll.
It was a great St. Nick’s morning. Addy stayed up and read her Grace book, and I went back to bed!
