MOM: Sally, this has been a wonderful Christmas.
SALLY: I'm glad you think so. It was all Butch's idea.
MOM: You mean Butch thought of this?
SALLY: Yes, it was good old Butch.
MOM: Well, when the door bell rang early this morning I didn't know what to think.
SALLY: I had to ring the door bell because Butch couldn't at the time.
MOM: When dad went to the door and looked out he yelled back for me to come.
SALLY: By the time you guys got there I had already come back in.
MOM: I looked out and here was this beautiful big box with a bow ribbon on top.
SALLY: That was my idea. I put the bow there.
MOM: It was so pretty.
SALLY: And Butch was so cold down inside that box.
MOM: I'll bet it was. It also was a big surprise for us when he got out of that box when dad opened the lid.
SALLY: The good thing was he wasn't out there that long.
MOM: And when he held up those signs I thought your dad was going to cry.
SALLY: I think he did. I know I was.
MOM: And when Butch cried out "Here I am. Merry Christmas" Then he said, "You always do so much for me, so I decided to give you myself for Christmas".
SALLY: And then he began handing out these special signs.
MOM: Yes, those signs were special. They said things like, "I'm your errand boy" and "I'll clean Tim's room and my own", and "I'll clean the garage" I just hugged and hugged him. He could hardly get his breath.
SALLY: I know dad said "It's the best present you could possibly give us. We love it."
MOM: How about you boys and girls? Did you think today about the fact that God gave His very best for you.
SALLY: That's right boys and girls. What have you given Him in return? What He wants most of all is the gift of yourself.
MOM: Will you give that gift to Him. Only then can He use your talents, time and service. Bye everyone. (Puppets down.)
