First, I'd like to thank everyone who stopped by for author, Virginia Wright's guest post. The winners of her books are Christine Rains, who won the coloring book, Deanie Dunne, who won a coloring book, and Tracy Campbell, who won the story book. Congratulations, ladies!
Now, for the story:
We had gotten a new dishwasher recently, because our old one finally died. As you all know, dishwashers come in big boxes. And as you also probably know, my son, Bubba, likes to play in boxes.
Bubba had a perfect new box. He parked himself in the box, right next to the Christmas tree which had just been put up and decorated. All was fine until Bubba decided that the box would be a perfect vehicle. He used his body to rock the box back and forth until it moved - right into the Christmas tree.
I sprang into action and stopped the tree from timbering. I barely made it. Somehow, the only casualties were a few ornaments and some Christmas bulbs.
"Bubba," I said after the situation was under control. "You're supposed to rock around the Christmas tree. Not into it!"
