148. Christmas Ginger Babe 

      My ten-minute writing is to be based on presents of five stickers representing a snowman, green tree, gingerbread looking cookie, a snowflake and a Santa Claus with words “tell a story about one or each of these.”

      I saw the Santa Claus and thought of my first ever Santa Claus parade and we all sang:

OH, YOU BETTER WATCH OUT, YOU’D BETTER NOT CRY

YOU’D BETTER NOT SHOUT I’M TELLING YOU WHY

SANTA CLAUS IS COMING TO TOWN.

      The next one I saw was:

O CHRISTMAS TREE, O CHRISTMAS TREE

YOUR LEAVES ARE SO UNCHANGING!

      And when I saw the snowman:

FROSTY THE SNOWMAN WAS A JOLLY HAPPY SOUL

WITH A CORNCOB PIPE AND A BUTTON NOSE AND TWO EYES MADE OUT OF COAL!

      When I looked at the snowflake:

I’M DREAMING OF A WHITE CHRISTMAS   came to mind.

       We now have a dilemma.  I don’t know a song about a gingerbread person.  I’ve never eaten gingerbread. I’ve never made a gingerbread house. I guess I could make up a song about this little ginger babe.

THIS LITTLE GINGER BABE

HAS TWO EYES AND A BIG SMILE

TWO ARMS AND TWO LEGS

AND CAN WALK AWHILE

LOOKING SO CONTENT

HAPPY AS CAN BE

AND IS COMING HOME

TO DECORATE MY TREE

THIS LITTLE GINGER BABE

TWO EYES AND A BIG SMILE

ITS ON IT’S WAY HOME

THANKS TO PATTY AND ME!
