Alice: I'll hand you the ornaments to hang on the tree, Mom! Mom: Thank you, Alice. Alice: Ew! What's this wad of stuff? Mom: Petey made that in preschool out of five rolls of aluminum foil. Alice: Ha ha! What's this one? Mom: That's the wacky Christmas elf that I made! Alice: Ooh! Mom: You made that! Remember? Alice: Oof! What's this brick on a string? Mom: Daddy made that. Mom: We hang it on the back of the tree to counterbalance all the other ornaments. Dad: Can I have the brick?
