The Rest of the Story:
1: Well, thankfully the reindeer are all slimmed down and rounded up and thanks to Ina's detective work, we know that Conner and Cupid are both in tip-top shape and can pull the sleigh around the world in record time. Whew!! Now all the short people are turning the focus to getting the streets and houses decorated for the coming holiday visitors and shoppers. Because where else would you go to get your Christmas cookies if you are to busy to bake them. No where but Sugar Cookie Lane.
2: So the lights have been strung by the big burly guys as the short people ten to get them all tied up n knots and then all you hear isn't Silver Bells that's for sure. So now the short people are in charge of the greenery, the ornaments, the tinsel, and the spray snow. Ummm, I'm not so sure about that spray snow stuff, that could get out of hand real quick. But here come the troops of short people with wagons and wagons of greenery and boxes and boxes of ornaments. So the decorating is soon to commence.
3: Around the town and up and down the lanes they go, draping greenery above windows and doors. And after them come the ornaments crew and they are a bit slower as they have to argue at every door which one went there last year so they don't repeat. Oh dear, why didn't someone write this all down last year. This is gonna take awhile I'm afraid.
4: Wait, what are those short people doing over here? Oh, NO.....it's the tinsel crew.....Wait, you aren't supposed to put tinsel here, see it's hanging down over the door. The tinsel goes on the big tree. Hurry, we have to get this stuff pulled down and get over to the square or the tree will look bare.
More Christmas, more Christmas...can you ever have to much Christmas? Bring the ornaments, the tinsel, the garland, the bows and lets make jolly.
