This is very different. I liked it! Good job.
Very honest look at sisters, and yet so sweet.
Very cute poem, if a little cheesy. :) I like the realism you showed in the sisters' relationahip. If I were to be picky, I'd change the wording of this line, "My husband, the youth pastor..." Surely the sister knows her husband is a youth pastor, so you could say something like, "I knew that marrying a youth pastor would mean Christmases away from family." Overall, though, this story flows well and has a sweet, homey feel about it.
I really enjoyed this.

I'm not from the South, so I can't say I relate to the sentiments....sounds rather tongue-in-cheek to me. Nice job, though....Excellent writing!
I like how she was able to be honest with her sister. And her poem/letter was really cute. Nice job!
