Mrs. Gingerbread was losing her patience, “Reese, Heath, Graham, Candy! Daddy and I already dressed for the Ugly Sweater Party. Get your behinds ready!”
“Mo-oom! Reese stole my hat!”
“Yeah! ‘Cuz I gotta have green to match my necklace.”
“Reese… just wear your green sweater. Heath, put your other black shoe on, please.”
“But I wanna wear black and red!” Heath’s lip quivered. Mrs. Gingerbread nipped the tantrum in the bud.
“That’s fine, Heath. Help me get Dutch and Midnight ready. Their outfits are so cute!”
Mr. Gingerbread patted Graham on the shoulder, “Well, my boy, tonight will be sweet!”
