Christmas & Pizza

It was Saturday, December 18, 2021, and it was in the afternoon. In the living room at Amore's house, Ashley, Amore, and Lisa were all sitting on the living room couch while watching the 1960s version of Dr. Suess' How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Then after a while of the three sisters watching TV together, Lisa went ahead and asked a question.

"Why is The Grinch green?"

"Because The Grinch is not human.", Amore told her.

"Why not?" Lisa asked her.

"I don't know. And I don't think none of the whos in Whoville are human."

"Well, if they're all not human, what are they then?" Lisa spoke.

"I don't know. Ask Ashley.", Amore spoke.

"If you wanna have a holly jolly Christmas, you won't ask me about anything until December 26." Ashley told Lisa before Lisa spoke.

Then Donna went ahead and came into the living room with three glasses of eggnog in her hands before asking a question. "Who wants some Christmas eggnog?"

"I do!" Ashley exclaimed.

"Yeah, me too.", Amore added.

"And me three.", Lisa added.

Donna set down the three glasses down on the living room table.

"Okay, enjoy. And merry Christmas.", Donna told them. Then Donna went ahead and exited the living room. All three girls continued watching Dr. Suess' How the Grinch Stole Christmas on TV.

Ashley went ahead and picked up her glass and drunk some eggnog before setting the glass back down on the living room table. Amore picked up her glass and drunk some eggnog before setting the glass back down on the living room table. And Lisa picked up her glass and drunk some eggnog before setting the glass back down on the living room table.

"Ew! Yuck!" Lisa exclaimed.

"What's wrong, Lisa?" Amore asked her.

"Eggnog tastes terrible!" Lisa answered her.

Amore told Lisa, "Well, why don't you go ahead and keep trying it. Maybe your mind will eventually change about eggnog and you'll start liking it more."

"Okay.", Lisa replied.

Lisa picked up her glass and drunk some more eggnog before setting the glass back down on the living room table. "Ew! Yuck!" she exclaimed again. Lisa picked up her glass and drunk some more eggnog before setting the glass back down on the living room table. "Ew! Yuck!" Lisa exclaimed again.

"Lisa, if you still don't like the eggnog, you should just give the rest of it to me, so we won't have to hear you say 'Ew! Yuck!' all day long.", Ashley suggested.

"I'll just take the glass and empty the rest of the eggnog into the sink. I'll be right back.", Amore reported. Then Amore got up, picked up Lisa's drink, and went inti the kitchen. Then Ashley and Lisa continued watching Dr. Suess' How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Later, Amore walked back into the living room and sat down next to Ashley and Lisa. And Amore continued watching Dr. Suess' How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Then Amore went ahead and asked a question.

"So, anyone know what they want for Christmas yet now that Christmas is exactly one week away?"

"I want another doggie.", Lisa responded.

Amore told Lisa, "I don't think Mom and Dad are ever gonna approve of having two dogs in the house along with the four of us. Now, you could ask Santa for another dog, but Mom and Dad would probably still get rid of it." "So, Ashley, what about you?"

"None of your beeswax. Now, leave me alone if you also want a holly jolly Christmas."

Then all three girls continued watching television together.

It was Sunday, December 19, 2021, and it was in the afternoon. In the basement of the Cooper household, Rebecca Cooper was inside while near an easel and a blank white canvas. Rebecca Cooper was also near some paint and paintbrushes. By the overall look of things in the basement, it looked like she was getting ready to paint something. And she, in fact, was getting ready to paint something.

Then Rebecca began playing Deck the Halls as she inserted a CD into a CD player and pressed the play button on that CD player. Rebecca continued getting ready to paint whatever it was she was going to paint. And as the Christmas music kept playing in the background, Rebecca went ahead and grabbed a paintbrush.

Then Rebecca took the paintbrush and dipped it in some paint. After Rebecca took the paintbrush out of the paint, she began painting what she wanted to paint. And Rebecca continued painting what she wanted to paint.

Then Rebecca continued painting what she wanted to paint some more. And as Rebecca continued painting what she wanted to paint, she was having fun painting what she wanted to paint as well. A masterpiece was currently in the works during that time. Also, Rebecca was getting inspired by the Christmas music.

Later, the Christmas music stopped playing. And Rebecca finished painting her painting. Amore went ahead and came down into the basement while walking down the basement stairs. Then Amore saw Rebecca's creation before speaking.

"Woah! You made this?!"

"I sure did." "So, what do you think?"

"Wow! It's so beautiful! I had no idea you had such artistic skills!"

"Thanks."

"What's this painting supposed to be?"

"Just a bunch of snowmen sitting down at the dinner table eating Christmas dinner on the evening of Christmas Day."

"Cool!" "Hey, maybe you should become a professional painter one day."

"Nah, I don't think so."

"Why not?" "I think you'd be great at it."

"I still have big dreams of becoming a musician when I grow up. But maybe I could paint every now and then in my free time. But thanks for the suggestion."

"You're very welcome."

"Oh, and by the way, why are you down here?"

"I just came down here to use the second bathroom while the first bathroom is currently being occupied."

"Oh." "Well, enjoy your bathroom break."

Then Amore went ahead and started using the second bathroom.

It was Monday, December 20, 2021, and it was in the afternoon during a two-week Christmas break when Ashley, Amore, and Rebecca didn't have to go back to school until the year 2022. Amore and Lisa went ahead and stepped outside the front door of their house while wearing coats, hats, and gloves. Also, it was snowing outside. And there was a lot of snow on the ground as well. Then Lisa went ahead and spoke.

"Whoa! Look at all this snow!"

"I know, Lisa. It looks so beautiful."

"I wanna build a snowman! Wait, scratch that, I wanna build more than one snowman!"

"I wanna make a snow angel. Wait, scratch that, I wanna make multiple snow angels."

"I wanna make a snow pizza!"

"I don't think that's even possible."

"It is too!"

"Is not!"

"Is too!"

"Is not!"

"Is too!"

"Is not!"

"Is too!"

"Is not!"

"Is too!"

"Is not!"

"Is too!"

"Is not!"

"Is too!"

"Is not!"

"Is too!"

And as Amore and Lisa continued playfully arguing, Ashley went ahead and came outside through the front door wearing her coat, hat, and gloves. Ashley saw the arguing that was going on. Then Ashley came up with an idea.

Ashley went ahead and bent down, got some snow, balled up all that snow into a snowball, got prepared to hit Amore or Lisa with the snowball, and ended up hitting Amore with the snowball. Then the playful arguing stopped. Amore turned and looked at Ashley.

"Ha! Bullseye! I got you good!"

"I'm gonna get you back for that!"

"No, you won't! You'll never get your revenge! And the little blondie over there will never get her revenge as well after I hit her with a million snowballs!"

"I and Lisa will hit you with a billion snowballs! And you'll never get your revenge until heck itself feels like today's weather!"

"Oh, yeah?!"

"Yeah!"

"Prove it."

"We will prove it!" Lisa exclaimed.

"Watch us make you into a snowwoman!" Amore added.

"You two are both gonna be a couple of snowgirls after I'm through with you."

"Then pick up a snowball and let's see what you've got!" Amore exclaimed.

"Okay, I will!"

Then Ashley went ahead and bent down and began creating another snowball. And as Ashley was creating a second snowball, Amore and Lisa were creating snowballs as well. Then all three girls were done making all four snowballs.

"You go first.", Ashley spoke while walking around.

"No, you go first!" Amore exclaimed while walking around with Lisa.

"Okay.", Ashley replied.

Then Ashley threw one of the snowballs that Amore missed. And Amore threw one of the snowballs that Ashley missed. Then the snowball fight, featuring Ashley versus Amore and Lisa, officially began.

It was Tuesday, December 21, 2021, and it was in the afternoon. Rebecca was down in the basement of the Cooper household while getting ready to create another Christmas masterpiece. She was near the same easel as earlier and there was a new blank white canvas. Rebecca took another CD, opened the CD player, and inserted the CD. Then Rebecca went ahead and closed the CD player.

Rebecca began playing the CD that was in the CD player. Then The First Noel was the Christmas song that began playing. And that song kept playing as background music and inspiration for Rebecca Cooper's next masterpiece.

Rebecca took one of the paintbrushes, dipped that paintbrush in some paint, and began working on her next December masterpiece. And she continued working on her next December masterpiece. And she kept working on her next December masterpiece.

And Rebecca Cooper kept working on her next December masterpiece some more. And Rebecca Cooper continued working on her next December masterpiece even longer. And Rebecca went ahead and continued her artistic work.

Later, there was no Christmas music playing as Rebecca continued creating Christmas-themed paintings in the basement. Amore and Lisa came down the stairs while wearing their coats, hats, and gloves. And Amore spoke.

"Rebecca, there you are! Listen, we need your help with something! Ashley keeps dominating us in snowball fighting! That's why we want you to be on our team for us to have a stringer advantage against her!"

"But I'm kind of in the middle of something.", Rebecca spoke as she was still painting.

"But can't that painting thing wait for a little while?" Amore asked her.

"I can't wait to bury Ashley in snow!" Lisa exclaimed.

"No, it can not wait.", Rebecca spoke as she was still painting.

"So, what are we supposed to do?! Just stand outside and let Ashley attack us?!" Amore exclaimed.

"I'm pretty sure you two will eventually think of something to figure Ash out." Rebecca continued painting.

Amore told Rebecca, "But she's older than us! She's bigger than us! She's stronger than us! She has more life experience than us!" "And you still don't think triple-teaming her out of nowhere is the best idea that has ever been conceived in the history of humankind?!"

"Yes, I do think that."

"So, you're just gonna let us lose to Satan's teenage daughter?" Amore asked her.

"Yep." Rebecca continued painting.

"I don't even know who you are anymore.", Amore commented.

Then Rebecca stopped painting and just sighed. "Look, I'll help you two out tomorrow. But for right now, I'm very busy. And I'm on a roll. Thank you for understanding."

Then Rebecca continued painting and ended up disappointing Amore and Lisa. Then Amore sighed and spoke. "Come on, Lisa." Amore began walking back up the basement stairs. And Lisa began following Amore back up the basement stairs as Rebecca continued painting.

It was Wednesday, December 22, 2021, and it was in the evening. Amore was wearing her pajamas in her lit bedroom while she was getting ready for bed. Then knocking was heard at Amore's bedroom door. "Come in!" she exclaimed. Amore sat down on her bed.

John opened the bedroom door and came inside holding a Christmas present. "I just wanted to give you one of your Christmas presents a little early this year."

"Okay, cool!" "But may I ask why?"

"Because this is the Christmas present that you have been wanting and asking for ever since the day after Christmas last year."

Then Amore's jaws dropped. Amore took the present from her Dad and started opening it up like a wild animal. Then Amore's jaws dropped again once she saw the gift. "Whoa! You did it! You finally got me the latest Samsung Galaxy phone!" she exclaimed happily.

"From me to you. It's the Samsung Galaxy S21. It has 5G, 128 gigs of storage space, phantom gray color, 8 gigs of RAM, and it's unlocked. Merry Christmas, Amore."

"Wow, thank you so much! Words just can't describe the level of happiness that I'm currently feeling at this exact moment! You're the best Dad ever!" Amore went ahead and hugged her father. And Amore's father went ahead and hugged back. Then all the hugging stopped. "I am so gonna tell all my friends at school about this next year! I'll be the kid with the best smartphone in the entire school!"

"And I also have something else to show you."

Amore set her smartphone down somewhere on her bed. And Max walked over to it and grabbed it with his mouth. "Okay, what else do you wanna show me?" she asked as Max walked closer to the door.

"This is the charger that you're gonna be using to charge your new phone. Now, it's important to not lose this thing or you'll have to buy a new one with your allowance money. Also, it's important not to have it lying anywhere near the dog or he might start chewing on it and damaging it in the process."

Then Amore looked somewhere else. "Hey!"

"What? What's wrong, Amore?" John turned around. "Max! Drop the phone! Right now!" And Max disobeyed as the phone was still held by his mouth. "I said drop it, mister!" And Max still didn't want to drop his new favorite chew toy. "Last warning, Max! Drop the phone! Now!" Max ran out of the bedroom with the smartphone. "Hey! Come back here! That phone cost me a lot of money!" John started chasing Max all around the house.

Rebecca came into Amore's room and saw the chase continue behind her. Rebecca turned her head back around and sat down next to Amore.

"And what do you want?" Amore spoke unhappily.

"Listen, I just wanted to apologize for not helping you take down Ashley yesterday. I guess I was so obsessed with my Christmas-themed art that I forgot what Christmas all is truly about. All of us coming together and giving the oldest sister a taste of her own medicine." "So, can you please find it in your heart to forgive me?"

"Okay, I forgive you.", Amore spoke more happily.

"Great!" "I'm glad to know we're both still cool. And I promise I'll help you two take down Ashley tomorrow afternoon."

"Do you super promise?"

"I super promise."

"And how about a pinky swear as well to go with that super promise?"

"Deal." Then a pinky-swear between Amore and Rebecca happened. "Well, now that that's settled, I'm gonna head to bed to rest up for tomorrow. See ya." Rebecca went ahead and exited Amore's bedroom.

A little later, John came into the bedroom and successfully got Amore's phone back as it was still not damaged. Meanwhile, John was breathing very heavily. He put the phone on her bed. "Here's your phone back, Amore. And don't worry, it's not damaged. Thank God. Merry Christmas.", John spoke while still breathing heavily. Then John left the bedroom and closed the bedroom door. And after that, Amore got into her bed and fell asleep.

It was Thursday, December 23, 2021, and it was in the afternoon. Amore and Lisa were walking around in the backyard of the Cooper household wearing their coats, hats, and gloves once again. They were holding two snowballs in each hand, which added up to four snowballs in total. It was a cold day as well. It wasn't snowing, but the backyard was covered with snow. And both sisters were still walking around in the backyard. Ashley went ahead and walked into the backyard wearing her coat, hat, and gloves. Then Ashley started creating a snowball. Ashley held a snowball in each hand and walked closer to Amore and Lisa.

"I guess this is the end of the line for you two. And I really hate to have to see it end." "So, any last words before I turn you two into a couple of snow losers?" she spoke with a grin.

"Yeah. Turn around.", Amore spoke with a grin.

"What?" Ashley spoke. Ashley turned around. And Ashley was hit with a couple of snowballs by Rebecca.

"Yes! Twenty points!" Rebecca exclaimed.

Then Ashley got surrounded by Amore, Rebecca, and Lisa. All three of Ashley's sisters had snowballs in their hands. And there was no escape in sight for Ashley.

"I guess this is the end of the line for you. And we really hate to have to see it end." "So, any last words?" Amore spoke with a grin.

"Look, over there, it's a snow tornado!" Ashley exclaimed.

"What?" Amore asked as she and her younger sisters saw nothing at all.

"Ash, we don't see anything." "Hey, where is she?" Rebecca spoke as Ashley disappeared.

"She's hiding somewhere." Amore commented. "I should've known that there is no such thing as a snow tornado!"

"I'm scared!" Lisa exclaimed.

"Just stay calm, everyone.", Amore instructed. "Now, all we have to do is just find her and give her what she deserves. A good cold-fashioned snow beating."

"Good thinking, Amore.", Rebecca replied.

"Let's get her!" Lisa added.

Then Amore, Rebecca, and Lisa slowly walked around in the backyard to find Ashley while being prepared for anything and everything. All three of them slowly continued walking around and looking around as well. The three sisters quickly ran behind a tree, spotted Ashley, missed Ashley's snowballs, and started taking Ashley down with snowballs before she had a chance to make some new ones.

And all three girls continued pounding Ashley with snowballs as she got on the ground. Ashley continued getting pounded by snowballs from her three younger siblings. And Ashley continued getting pounded by snowballs from her three younger sisters. And after Ashley's last words were said, her three younger sisters defeated her close to Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

It was Saturday, December 25, 2021, and it was Christmas morning. In Ashley's bedroom, the alarm from her smartphone went off. Ashley woke up in her bed, picked up her phone, and quieted the alarm. Then Ashley went ahead and continued lying in bed. And Ashley quickly picked up her phone, got out of bed, and ran into the living room.

Meanwhile, in Amore's bedroom, the alarm from her new smartphone went off. Amore woke up in her bed, picked up her new phone, and quieted the alarm. Then Amore went ahead and continued lying in bed. Abd Amore quickly picked up her new phone, got out of bed, and ran into the living room.

Meanwhile, in Rebecca and Lisa's bedroom, Rebecca and Lisa were both sleeping in their beds. The alarm clock in that bedroom started going off. And the alarm clock went ahead and woke up Rebecca and Lisa.

In her bed, Rebecca picked up the alarm clock and quieted the alarm. Then Rebecca continued lying in bed. And Rebecca quickly realized what day it was, got out of bed, and started running out of that bedroom.

Rebecca ran back into the bedroom. "Lisa, get out of bed! It's Christmas morning!"

Lisa quickly sat up on her bed. Then Lisa quickly got out of her bed and started running out of the bedroom and into the living room after Rebecca.

Later, in the living room, Last Christmas by Wham! Was the song that was playing from a nearby radio. Meanwhile, all four girls were busy opening presents.

Lisa unwrapped and opened one of her Christmas gifts. "I got an Etch A Sketch!" Lisa spoke happily.

Rebecca unwrapped and opened one of her Christmas gifts. "I got a pink toy violin!", Rebecca exclaimed happily.

Ashley unwrapped and opened a couple of her Christmas gifts. "Two Slipknot CDs?! How did Mom and Dad know I'm such a huge heavy metal fan?!" Ashley asked happily.

"Probably because Mom and Dad told you to, and I quote, 'turn that racket down in there' multiple times in the past.", Rebecca told her.

Amore held her new smartphone in her hand. "Wow!" "A new smartphone?!" "This has got to be the best Christmas ever!" Amore pretended to be surprised. "Merry Christmas, everyone! I amore you all so much!" Amore spoke happily.

"We all amore you too, Amore. Merry Christmas. And happy new year.", Rebecca spoke happily.

"Happy 2022 to you too. Let's open up the rest of our presents.", Amore spoke very happily.

"You don't have to tell me twice!" Lisa spoke very happily.

Then all four girls continued opening the rest of their presents as Last Christmas by Wham! continued playing from the radio. And all four felt nothing but happiness and joy as they continued opening their presents. And they all continued opening their presents some more. And after all that, it all turned out to be a very happy ending for Amore Cooper and her sisters on the first Christmas that Amore (restaurant) didn't just sell pizza and drinks anymore.
