"The Man In The Red Suit"


The world smelled like a GIANT red candy cane to me.
I smelled excitement in the air, from the moment I woke up!
This was MY day.
My moms and I had been planning this day for a whole year.
Do you want to join me?
Come on! Lets go!
Pack your water bowl and sweater and away we go- to see the man in the RED SUIT!
This is my new holiday sweater. Mama made my scarf- just for me.
As soon as we drove into Santa land, I announced I was there!
I announced to the world!
Here I come- READY OR NOT!

All the sparkling lights and smells and toys were everywhere!
What's a Tweedles to do?
I wanted to RUN free.
Run free up and down the aisles.
But,,,, for some reason that did not happen.
Not today at least.

I checked out all the shelves that were stocked with all kinds of toys and treats.
I saw horses, and cows and chickens and birds, and balls!
Hummm, I don't have one of those at home, I said to myself.
Not YET, at least.

And I found baskets FULL of toys.
The basket were going to animal shelters.
I choose two little toys for the basket too, so I carefully stuffed them in.
And then it was, that I started walking down a long trail deep into the forest.
There were kitties
and bunnies
and hampsters
There were big doggies and little doggies
And then there was ME.
Snowy white trees wth red ribbons stood tall on each side of the winding trail.
Snowmen were spinning in circles and dancing in the snow.
It looked like magic land to me.
Up ahead in the clearing I saw him- the man in RED, he was sitting.
He was jolly.
He laughed.
His eyes GLISTENED.
His hair was white as snow.
His smile said hello.
One by one,,,,,
each little animal took turns as they went up to the man in red and whispered in his ear.
I wonder what they said.
Soon it was my turn.
My EYES grew HUGE.
My heart POUNDED.
I looked in his eyes and then I whispered softly into his ear- then he kissed my face.
I can't tell you what I whispered.
It is really a secret.
Secrets are forever!
As I jumped down from his lap, I grabbed a candy cane, and danced with the snowmen.
Then,,,,,,,
I ran to mom who was waiting for me.
I was exhaugsted, after all that excitement.
Wouldn't you be?
As mommy drove us home, I dreamt about the snowmen that I saw dancing in the forest.
When we arrived home, I zoomed inside the house to tell my mama all about my day.
I wish you all sweet dreams tonight.

Nitey nite my friends
love

Tweedles, I am sure that Santy Paws will bring to you whatever your little ♥ desired. Why? Because you are such a sweet baby dog and you have such good thoughts all year long. Can't wait to see what he puts under the tree for you.
