I Have a Secret Christmas Mission

Yes. Secret Christmas Mission. SCM for short. Do you think it's a coincidence that it sounds like scum when you say it? I love Christmas. Especially on even years. Because my family from Colorado (remember them from the last post?) come every other year. (200, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010, ect.) So, back to SCM. My math teacher, Mrs. G (her last name is hard to pronounce/spell) makes these cool necklaces for 4$ each that you can personalize. You send her the picture you want, or, if it's a common one, you tell her which one you want, and she makes one for you. I decided to get some for my mom, dad, aunt, uncle, and two cousins. It's not as easy as you'd think. See, I don't want my parents to even know I'm getting them present, so I have to do it all secretly. Here's my plan.

  • Email Mrs. G with the links for the pictures I want

  • Give her the 24$ it cost for six of them

  • Get the wrapping paper from Jen, who's sleeping over Saturday

  • Get the necklaces from Mrs. G on Monday (hopefully)

  • Sneak them home in my backpack

  • Hide them somewhere I'll remember until I can wrap them

  • Wrap them without my parents finding me (probably at night)

  • Hide them until the stockings start getting full with presents

  • Wait for everyone to find them in their stockings Christmas morning

Yup. That's the SMC. It's not gonna be easy. Besides, my mom got a little suspicious when I started asking about Mrs. G's email, and where my aunt's favorite place to travel is. (it ended up not having anything to do with Mexico. Whatever.)

My uncle got the iTunes logo, (he loves iTunes) one cousin got a picture of Bob Marley, (he loves Bob Marley) the other cousin got a peace sign, (she has a tattoo of one) my mom got a flamingo (likes flamingos, yea, I don't get it either) my dad got a soccer ball, (he LOVES soccer) and my aunt got a Kokpelli guy. (she loves Kokopelli)

I realize most of you don't know what a Kokopelli is.

That's Kokopelli. He's a cool little guy, huh? Okay, well, wish me luck!

KOKOPELLI!!! I've grown up with that symbol, since my mom thinks that the're awesome. =P

They're deities of marriage and agriculture in Hopi and Zuni beliefs. (No, I'm not Hopi or Zuni, but I do have a small bit of Northeastern Native American blood in me.)

Also, your Voki's lips are seriously freaking me out, Donna. o.0
