Marcia, why haven't you got a Christmas dress on? Emily asks.
I don't want to wear one! Marcia replies.
But we are all wearing one. Emily says.
Quite clearly we are not. Marcia states...anyway I have a red jumper and red shoes, oh and of course my red hat, so that has to count.
Emily looks down at Marcia's sandals. Well I guess so... she says doubtfully.
Anyway on to business...it was quite clear that nothing was going to persuade Marcia otherwise.
She looks for today's little door.
I can't believe it is the 19th December already. She says as she opens the little door.
This month seems to be going so quickly. I hope Santa has time to get our presents organised!
Well what do we have here?
It looks like a little case. Marcia shows Emily.
There was also a little music book.
Marcia puts the little case down by the tree.
What else do you think we will get? Marcia asks Emily.
Perhaps a Christmas dress for you Marcia! Emily couldn't help saying with a giggle.
The scene is set.
