“Danny get the lights out of the barn. Daddy can you get the staple gun. Whitney watch the baby. Cheyenne get the deer. Bryan get the box of garland. Damian get the blow up snow globe. I’ll get the lights started over here. You boys start them over there.”
I need you to quit fighting. Don’t call him that! Do I have to separate you two? You go help Damian with the snow globe. Now wrap the lights over there while I do this side. Where are the extension cords? Did you plug the lights in to make sure they work? You mean I put all of these on here and you didn’t make sure they work. Great! They don’t work! Let’s go to the store.”
“Alright, I’ll plug these in first. Let’s stretch the lights out together. Whitney get the garland and ribbon and wrap that around the front fence. Cheyenne decorate the mailbox with this. Damian fix the antler on the reindeer. Bryan can you get those lights up higher? Danny where is the replacement bulb? Ethan! Get that out of your mouth!
Cheyenne and Whitney, will you girls take Ethan inside and fix some hot chocolate? Thank you. Boys why aren’t you helping? Get back over here and finish putting the lights on the tree, please. Why are these hanging. Brrrr! It’s getting cold. Boys, why don’t you go in and get your jackets.”

“Hey, Whitney! Thank you for the hot chocolate. My hands are freezing. Do you know where the boys went? They were supposed to come back out. Have them bring me a pair of gloves. Yes, I’m almost done.”

“Thanks for the gloves Bryan, I’m done.
Why don’t you go get everyone and we will plug the lights in.
Yes, they are beautiful.
Thank you, for all your help.”
