The Greatest Day.
"Elle! Are you ready to go?!" Alaska, Noelle's sister called from downstairs. Noelle grabbed her scarf and wrapped it around her neck as she grabbed her purse and opened her bedroom door. "I'm coming, sis!" Noelle called back down to her sister as she walked out of her room. Noelle walked down the long hallway when she heard her sister's voice again. "Make sure to bring some mittens with you! It's cold outside!" Alaska called from downstairs. Noelle stopped in her tracks when her sister said that and then turned around and walked back to her room. She walked into her room and then walked to her dresser as she opened the dresser door. "Hopefully there's a pair in here somewhere," Noelle told herself as she finally found a pair of pink ones.
"I found you. I knew you couldn't hide from me mittens." Noelle spoke out loud as she took them out of the drawer and put them on. Afterward, she closed the drawer and walked back out of her room. She walked down the hallway once more and down the stairs to where her sister was standing in the foyer. "Thank you for reminding me. I was about to forget them. Are you ready to go shopping for some gifts for everyone?" Noelle asked her sister with a smile. Alaska smiled and nodded her head. "Of course. It's one of the many things about Christmas that makes it so fun. Always getting to buy presents for loved ones and friends." Alaska told her sister as Noelle smiled and nodded her head. She knew exactly what Christmas was about.
"Do you remember when we used to be all about Santa?" Alaska asked as Noelle smiled and laughed softly. "Oh my gosh yes. I mean as kids we would write Santa a letter every year. I think all kids are like that though. Well up until they find out Santa isn't real." Noelle replied to her sister with a smile. "I know. It was always such a let down when we found out he wasn't real. I guess we all have to grow up sometime though. Even if we don't want to." Alaska replied as Noelle sighed knowing she was right. Either way, she knew they would have fun getting presents for everyone. One day Noelle would be able to pretend Santa was real again with her little boy or girl. Until then she would enjoy the fact that she could still get presents for everyone.
"Alright, let's get going. We have to meet Dannica before it gets too late." Noelle told her sister with a smile. Alaska nodded her head and walked to the coat hanger beside the door to grab her purse. After both girls had their things, Noelle pulled out her phone and found Dannica's number. *Hey girl. We are on our way to the mall now. We will meet you there.* Noelle sent the text to her friend and then walked out of the house with her sister. Once they were outside she locked the door and walked down the porch steps. After walking down the long walkway they finally made it to her car. Noelle unlocked the doors of her car and opened her door. She got into her car along with her sister and buckled her seatbelt. Once she was buckled in she shut her door and then hit the button to turn on her car.
Noelle put her car into reverse and began to back out of the driveway. Once she was out of the long driveway she put her car in drive and drove out of the gated home they lived in. Within 15 minutes they had finally arrived at the mall. Noelle pulled into the mall's parking lot and after a few minutes finally found a parking spot. Noelle pulled into the parking space and then hit the button to turn off her car after putting it in park. "We're here. Let's go meet Dani inside." Noelle told her sister with a smile. She unbuckled her seat belt and then opened her door and got out. Noelle locked the doors of her car once they were both out and after grabbing her purse, then walked with her sister into the mall. *Hey girl. We're here in the front lobby whenever you get here.* Noelle sent the text to Dannica as she waited for her with her sister.
