Finally, the tree had been decorated. Susie couldn't wait to put the angel on
the top of the tree.
"Ready?" asked Mr. Smith.
"Yes, Daddy, I'm ready!" said Susie happily. She took the angel out of the
box. The angel had long, white, silk wings. She had a white silky dress, hair
as gold as the sun, and eyes as blue as the sky. "She's beautiful!"
"She is lovely, isn't she?" agreed Mrs. Smith.
Mr. Smith lifted Susie onto his shoulders. Susie placed the angel on the top.
The tree was complete, and it was beautiful.
That night, the Smith family children
did not want to go to sleep. Susie
insisted that they needn't go to sleep,
because the next morning they could
sleep late. (It was Christmas vacation.)
