Excerpt: ...the hills. And I heard Dorothy and Dick saying yesterday that they were going to get up, even before the sun, to see what Santa Claus had brought them." "He certainly brought them a fine lot of presents," remarked the Jumping Jack, in a sort of rusty, squeaking voice. "I hope-" "Hush! Here they come, now!" whispered the Sawdust Doll. The door opened. In rushed two happy, laughing, shouting children. "Merry Christmas!" cried Dorothy. "Merry Christmas!" echoed Dick. "Oh, here is the set of dishes I wanted!" Dorothy exclaimed. "And here is my White Rocking Horse!" shouted Dick. "Oh, it's just the very one I hoped I'd get! Oh, what a dandy!" With a leap he was up on the red saddle and grasping the red reins in his hands. "Gid-dap!" cried the boy, and he beat a tattoo on the sides of the horse with his feet. But as Dick had on soft slippers, he did not hurt the White Rocking Horse in the least, nor did he chip off any paint. "Here I go! Here I go!" shouted Dick. "Oh, what a fine horse!" "He's lovely, Dick," said his sister. "Merry Christmas, children!" said Mother, as she came in to see the Christmas tree. "Merry Christmas!" they answered. "See what you have, Mother!" And there were presents for her and for Daddy also, under the tree. And Daddy came downstairs, rubbing his eyes and saying: "Merry Christmas!" The White Rocking Horse felt very happy and so did the Sawdust Doll, and even the Jumping Jack was as jolly as the rest. "You may have a ride on my horse if you want to, Dorothy," said Dick, as he slowly brought his steed to a stop. "Thank you," answered his sister. "And when I have a play party with my new Christmas dishes you may come and have some cake." And so Christmas came and brought happiness with it to Dick and Dorothy and also to the White Rocking Horse and the Sawdust Doll. For the toys were in a fine house and had a kind master and mistress. And that means more than you think to toys. I cannot begin to tell you all that happened this...
