E33 Christmas present

A few months later, in Andy’s new home… A cheery wreath hung on the frontdoor. Lights twinkled around the frosty picture window.

Inside the warm and cozy house, Andy’s family gathered around a beautifullydecorated Christmas tree.

Though it was early in the morning, Andy was wide awake, poking andprodding the presents beneath the tree. “Which one can I open first?” he askedhis mom.

“Let’s let Molly open one,” Mrs. Davis replied.

As Andy handed his sister a present, one of the bulbs on the Christmastree moved a quarter of an inch, and a small Green Army Man peeked out at theDavis family with his tiny green binoculars.

Behind him, several soldiers clung to silver tinsel as they climbed intothe tree.

Another soldier reached for a knob on the baby monitor that was wedgedbetween some sturdy branches.

Upstairs in Andy’s room, the receiving end of the baby monitor crackledwith static.

“Frankincense—this is Myrrh,” Sarge’s voice announced. “Come in,Frankincense.”

Buzz leaned forward from his spot on Andy’s bed. Beside the monitor, Hammcalled out, “Hey, heads up, everyone! It’s showtime!”

Andy’s toys chattered excitedly as theygathered on the floor below.

Whoa! Its time! said Rex. The toys ran toward the monitor.

Woody was about to follow when a shepherd’s crook yanked him backward.

Bo Peep smiled at the sheriff and pointed up to a shelf, where her sheepdangled sprigs of mistletoe above the two dolls’ heads.

Say, Woody began. Isnt that mistletoe?

Bo Peep nodded. Then she flung her arms around Woody and dipped himbackward for a big oldfashioned kiss.

The rest of the toys clustered below the monitor in anticipation. Thefear they had felt the day of Andy’sbirthday party was long gone.

Quiet, everyone! Buzz calledout. The toys settled down to listen to Sarges report.

Mollys first present is Mrs. Potato Head. Repeat: Mrs. Potato Head.

Hamm laughed, slapping Mr. Potato Head on the back. “Way to go, Idaho!

Gee, Mr. Potato Head said. I better shave. He whipped off his plasticmustache piece and grinned.

Woody climbed onto the bed and sat down beside Buzz. The spaceman noddedhello, then stifled a grin when he saw the lipstick smears all over Woody’s face.

Come in, Frankincense, cameSarges voice again. Andy isnow opening his first present—”

Static made his voice difficult to understand. Buzz banged on the side ofthe monitor sharply.

Buzz Lightyear, Woody said,tipping his cowboy hat back on his head. Youre not worried, are you?

Me? No, no, no, no, Buzz said.Then he looked up anxiously. Are you?

Woody slung his arm around his best friend’s shoulders and chuckled. Now, Buzz, whatcould Andy possibly get that is worse than you?

Suddenly, Andy gave an excited shout from downstairs.

Buzz and Woody stared at each other, their smiles dropping intoopen-mouthed shock as they heard yapping coming through the monitor.

Bark-bark-bark! Oh, no! There was just one thing worse than a brand-newtoy: a brand-new puppy!
