Amanda & the Blue Christmas Dream

Winter Break Whimsy

At Amanda’s house, winter break normally means a trip up north to visit Grammy and Pop. But, this year, the beloved grandparents came down south to spend the holidays with Amanda and family.

Wanting to make this holiday even more special, the kids, crouched together in Marty’s infamous work space, designed a colorful spectacle for the whole family.

Inspired by a favorite carol, “Dreaming of a White Christmas” along with a couple of twists of their own, Marty constructed a slotted-bottom bucket to hang from the living room ceiling fan. Rubie concocted a mix of bright blue food coloring, water and extra-shaken soap.

On Christmas morning, Marty hit play on the CD player and turned the ceiling fan on high. Rubie then climbed the ladder and began slowly pouring her solution into the bucket.

Unexpected Messy, Turn of Events

As the bright blue bubbles and foam floated through the living room, their parents, Grammy and Pop, clad in pajamas, danced and laughed in the blue snow bubble shower.

Just then, Rubie lost her grip of the slippery, blue soap and dropped her bucket of foamy bubble solution right into the white carpet and absorbed quickly.

Wet with soap suds, their family paused, shook their heads then laughed. Grammy looked at her nervous grandchildren and said, “Thank goodness for Flat Rate Carpet.”

Two days after Christmas, the grandparents left just as the technician arrived. While the technician removed the stain, Amanda took a break from her book and thought, “Oh, how I love those colorful imaginations.”

Amanda & the Chocolate Milk Cow Explosion

Fighting Mid-Winter Boredom

With the changing seasons, came a serious change in lifestyle for Amanda and her children. No more long evenings playing outside with late sunsets. No more comfortable temperatures and homework-less afternoons. Winter came and Marty, Amanda’s son, got bored.

As an inquisitive and inventive child, Marty decided to make some indoor fun of his own. Feeling inspired by his last biology lesson at school, Marty decided to build a replica of the amazing Guernsey cow, the dairy queen of the farm, but with a twist.

Marty, locked away in his work space, created a beautiful cardboard white and brown spotted cow. As an avid chocolate milk fan, Marty felt it only necessary to finish off the cow with a latex glove utter filled with freshly mixed chocolate milk.

White Pastures, Brown Puddles & Flat Rate Carpet

Feeling utterly proud of his creation, Marty brought his cow out to pasture on the white carpets of the living room.

While frolicking among the carpets, Marty’s Guernsey cow sprung a chocolate milk leak and the glove exploded. Before Marty could react, a giant chocolate milk puddle absorbed into the carpet.

Marty did the only responsible thing he could think of–he called his mom for help. Amanda looked from the chocolate stain to her disappointed son. She shook her head, smiled and said, “Thank goodness for Flat Rate Carpet.”

A technician arrived at her house an hour later and, while he cleared the stain completely, Amanda took a break from her book and thought lovingly to herself, “What will that boy of mine think of next?”
