Beautifully wrapped boxes surrounded the ten foot Christmas tree adorned with antique ornaments and crystal beads. The leg of lamb dinner had been enjoyed by the foursome and Sarah was wringing her hands, anxious to get at the presents.

Jackson stood admiring the tree and all the artistically wrapped gifts surrounding it. "That's a lot of shoe boxes."
