Snow covered the carrot fields and icicles hung from the trees. A cold wind swayed the bare branches and blew gusts of powdery snow into the valley. But indoors, all was merry and warm at the Hopps family household. Bunnies dressed in festive colours gathered around the tree to watch their big sister put the star on top, a tradition in the Hopps family.
"Okay, smile for the camera, everybody!" said Bonnie Hopps as she took a picture of everyone around the tree.
Standing out among all the bunnies was Nick, wearing a green knitted sweater that brought out the colour of his eyes. He stood next to Judy, dressed in purple, who had the star in her paws.
"Okay, now let's put the star up, Judy," said Stu Hopps as he filmed the moment with his camcorder.
"Alright, dad," said Judy. "Um...Peter, can you get the stepladder?"
"No need for that," said Nick as kneeled down and offered his paws. "Need a lift, my love?"
Judy giggled as she climbed up carefully onto Nick's shoulders.
