I woke up the rest of my family and as we sat in the dark hall leading to the living room, I saw a round man with rosie cheeks, a red hat, and a red suit. I knew it was Santa. My whole lamily watched in shock. My Dad slowly stated up, and went to go get the camera. He turned it on. Santa pulled some present out of his big red bag, drank his milk, and stuffed his cookies in his pocket. My whole family was speech- less. We got up. and looked around. It couldn't have been but 15 minutes felt like an hour. That's my law)rite Christmas memory. Jared Hickman I woke up one morning and found it had snowed overnight. I was in a big hurry to go out in the snow and sled. 1 finally got to go outside. I went and dug out my old sled and got on top of a big, big, big, big hill. I got my sled in my hands and I moved my legs to get going. I started going faster so I jumped on the sled and took off - faster and faster. I thought, I'll stand up. When I did, the sled shot out from under me, and I went roll- ing down the hill. Finally I got to the bottom of the hill. Then, l got up and found the sled and went back in the house. Zena Johnson It was just before Christmas. We were outside playing at Jessica Turner's house. We were playing snowball dodge. We didn't have gloves on so our hands were cold. Well, about time when they were red and numb we went inside. Jessica's morn made us some hot chocolate. We were sitting in the floor drinking hot chocolate and watching cartoons. We went back outside and made snow angels. We chased each other around the yard. We had her sister Bethany get us some trash bags so we could slide. We had a lot of fun that day. John Jones One time at Christmas, I got a present, a big one at that. I like presents! One time I had a stock- ing with candy and I ate the candy. I got a Grineh blanket. Then I went to my grandma's house and ate food and opened presents. Then me and my uncles played basket- ball and football. It's fun and I plan to do it this year. Laiken Lester It was 2 weeks after New Years and my family was on a ski trip at Red River, New Mexico. when the runs were fixing to be closed for the day. We were going to ride the ski lift back up one more time. My morn and brother were getting on and the man running that lift folded the seats up because it was clos- down right on his face and my mom was dangling from the pole so she finally let go before she fell in the creek below. Thankfully they were both okay, but the man running the lift felt really bad. While this was all happening my dad and I were standing there laughing our heads off. Justin Lowery It was a day before Christmas. My Dad and his friend took his son and me sledding. My dad had just made a sled for me. It would go faster than any sled there. Right before we left my friend and I went down a hill. We cr~shed. He got a thorn stuck in his forehead. 1 ran into a pine tree. It hurt! I had a bump on my head for about two days. We had fun anyway. Sarah McClellan My favorite year of Christmas would be year '97. When my dog went outside, my cousin and brother went outside to play. They had just finished open- ing their presents. Then I finished opening my presents too. My morn went to her room to take a nap. Then I asked her if I could go play ouLside. She said, "OK!"
