“Shhh,” I whispered as I shushed the kids reminding them that their shoes were making a shuffling noise as we silently made our way up the un-shoveled walk to a neighbor’s house.  Knowing their Christmas would be frugal, we has ordered a shipment of toys and clothes to deliver on this snowy night.

Next morning the door bell rang.  “Thank you for our Christmas goodies,” sang out happy voices.  “We wouldn’t have known where they came from but we could see your shoe tracks in the snowy slush.””Shhh,” I whispered as I shushed the kids reminding them that their shoes were making a shuffling noise as we silently made our way up the un-shoveled walk to a neighbor’s house.  Knowing their Christmas would be frugal, we has ordered a shipment of toys and clothes to deliver on this snowy night.
