The Christmas Dinner (part 2)
We sat down on the table excitedly while my Mum had served the food on the table. They were all covered in red and green lids. She lifted  all of the lids and our mouths fell open. “Wow! They look delicious!” we exclaimed. “Indeed. Your Dad and I are great cooks!” Mum said. “The turkey looks very delicious,” Dad said. “Now let’s start to eat!” said Mum. There was Christmas pudding, Albanian pie, strawberry custard and some milk and cookies and of course, the turkey, which looked the most delicious of all. We all started choosing our items. We tried a little bit of everything. The food was so delicious that we did not speak a word during the meal. “Now, let’s put some milk and cookies in front of the chimney!” said Claire, before getting a tray from the kitchen, after she had finished eating. I got the milk and cookies which I had kept on the tray carefully. “Now you two have to go to bed now,” said Dad. “Okay, Dad. Goodnight Mum. Goodnight Dad. Merry Christmas Eve! Hahaha!” we laughed. “Hahaha! Goodnight children. Merry Christmas Eve to you two as well,” Said Mum and Dad. We walked upstairs waving at Mum and Dad then brushed our teeth. Then we headed to our bedroom and changed into our pyjamas. Claire had switched the light off and we both tucked up into our bed with our little teddy-bears. “Goodnight, Claire,” I said. “Goodnight, Catherine,” said Claire. “I hope we get our presents tomorrow,” I said. “We sure will,” Said Claire. Then we closed our eyes.
