It was one chilly but sunny morning and Mrs Underwood has just finished her weekly shop at the Village Store.
But her brother, PC Bobby Roberts, is watching her with the big cake she got as a surprise for the children. "I've only had three biscuits and a jam roly-poly today! I wouldn't mind a slice of cake at all!!!" the PC thought to himself.
Beatrix had only just gotten back home when she got a phone call.
"Uncle Roberts has just phoned to say he'll be round for dinner! He said he would bring some nice yummy treats for us to have," announced Beatrix. "Yaayyyyy! Uncle Roberts is coming!!!" the children cheered.
"Ding-dong!" went the doorbell. It was PC Bobby Roberts himself, wearing his smartest outfit and carrying a hamper load of stuff!
The children welcomed him in.
Beatrix got the dining table set up while PC Bobby Roberts and Benjamin played with the kids.
They had dinner and chatted away!
"I have a brilliant idea!" PC Bobby Roberts said."We can write letters to Santa!!" Everybody thought it was a good idea. Benjamin looked out the pencils and paper. Byron, Bess and Hugh looked through the toy catalogue.
They sat with their Uncle Roberts and wrote the letters to Santa.
They gave them to Uncle Roberts.
They watched the letters go up the chimney all the way to the North Pole.
The letters swirled out of the chimney and up into the sky.
But as PC Bobby Roberts sat in bed that night, he had an idea .............
TO BE CONTINUED ON CHRISTMAS.....
