It was Christmas and the Block family brought home a beautiful tree they cut themselves in the woods. The tree had the beautiful fresh pine smell that fill the house, reminding everyone it was Christmas. The Block family had four people, the mother, father and two children. They also had two pets that they adored, Jordy and Dusty. Dusty was a golden lab, three years of age and still had a lot of puppy in him. His new buddy was Jordy, a kitten the family decided to adopt from the pound. Jordy, like all kittens was full of mischief. Jordy liked his new home, but wished he could go outside, like his buddy Dusty did. Jordy and Dusty were delighted when the family brought a tree into the house. Now, Jordy thought it would be fun to climb and sit in the tree. It would be fun to scare Dusty when he walked by and that's exactly what he did. Dusty smelled and smelled the tree and all of a sudden, something flew out of the tree and scared him half to death. Dusty jumped and ran, catching his back legs in the electrical cord that was attached to the lights on the tree. Dusty fell and the tree fell right behind him. Dusty looked at the tree and saw Jordy also looking at it with wide open eyes. Oh no, what trouble have we caused, we are sure to get in trouble they both thought. There was no way they could get the tree back up, so just sat patiently waiting for the Block family to return. When the family came home, with new ornaments in hand for their tree, they saw the house was a mess. The tree was tipped over and there sat Dusty and Jordy sitting next to it. Mr. Block laughed and then the entire family laughed. Dusty and Jordy were relieved, because they knew that they could be in big trouble. The entire family watched as the tree was again put upright by Mr. Block, it was going to be a great holiday after all.
