No Peeking!

"Look. They're headed towards the basement."

"I know. I saw them looking for the key to the door in the kitchen cabinets."

"Let's stop them this minute. How dare they look for their gifts, steal keys and sneak around the house."

"They're kids. Didn't you ever look for a hidden gift or shake the box to find out what was in it?"

"Well, yes. But that's besides the point!"

"Anyway, it doesn't matter. I moved all of the gifts to the attic. The only thing they'll find are boxes with lumps of coal."

"I can't wait to see their faces!"

This drabble was from last year's Advent Calendar.  For this year's Advent Calendar, please visit The Burrow.


  1. Hey, that’s a great idea! Love this drabble.

  2. teehee--I'd forgotten your twist of finding the coal *snort* Oh, nice trick to leave gag gifts for those sneaksy sneakers!

  3. @ Holly- Yes, my husband and I love playing pranks on the kids. Keeps us young and them on their toes.

    @ Hart- Yes, my children are tricksy and will try to decipher what we have gotten them for Christmas every year. We're always one up on them though.
