Chapter 14: December 1st
Well it has been a week since Thanksgiving day and wow that was so much fun. Meeting new people and getting to know them, even tho some of them stink LOL! Anyways, Jake is now around a lot because he imprinted on my and Jasper's adoptive daughter Ava. I am so happy right now with my life the way it is going for us right now. I mean well other than losing my best friend Kim. I have a wonderful family, friends, and I am going to be marring the love of my life soon. Just in two months I get to marry Jasper and I so can not wait. Right now we are still planing and Alice has already sent out the invitations for our wedding. She keeps telling me stuff is coming a long just fine and she also has some things she is keeping from me. When I try to see, she keeps blocking them from me. Anyways we are going Christmas tree shopping to day and even some Christmas shopping.
“Honey, I am going to go wake Ava up so we can get her fed and ready to go with Alice and the family Christmas tree shopping,” I told Jasper. So I got up from his lap and we both walked upstairs to wake Ava up. When I got to her room and I saw her in bed still asleep it was just so cute watching her sleep. I wish some times I could still sleep like that. Me and Jasper walked to her bed and bent down to wake her. “Ava honey, its nine and you need to wake baby,” Jasper told her in a soft voice. She opened her eyes and saw us and gave us a big smile. “Good morning mom and dad. Are we going Christmas tree shopping today?” “Yes we are sweetheart, that is why you need to get up and eat breakfast that grandma has ready for you. Then I will help you get ready. Then well all go out and find a big Christmas tree,” I told her. She raised her hands for Jasper to pick her up and he did. We then all went downstairs and I saw Jake sitting on the couch playing video games with Emmett. “Good morning Jakey,” Ava yelled. I swear to you that Jake jumped five feet in the air when Ava yelled like that. We all laughed and he blushed a bright red and I was surprised to even see it under that dark skin of his.
Ava got down from Jasper and ran to Jake. Then I told Jake to take her to the kitchen to eat and he did. So that left me and Jasper time to get ready and to also pick out Ava's clothes for her. So we both ran upstairs and we stopped by Alice. “Oh Bella, can I please dress you and do your makeup and hair. Then dress Ava also, please, please, please,” Alice asked jumping up down like a rabbit. I rolled my eyes and then she got even more happier then. I looked a Jasper and he just laughed and then I was being pulled to Alice and Edward's room to play barbie Bella. I learned you never can argue with Alice, so when she sat me in the chair in her bathroom and started to do her work. All in the time I was being made looking more beautiful, Ava came in jumping up and down. “Mommy, you looking pretty,” she told me. “Thanks honey, you just wait tho, its going to be your turn in just a bit,” I told her.
30 minutes later Alice was done with me and I must admit I did look smoking hot. I had a t-shirt on that was black with a skull on it, then the skirt I had on was plaid red and black. Then the boots came just under my knee and we black. My hair was done up really pretty and well like I said I looked smoking hot. Jasper agreed with me and started to kiss me. Then Alice got Ava to sit in the chair I was just in and started to do her hair. “Bella, can I please put a little makeup on Ava?” Alice asked me. “Alice, she is to young for makeup but you can put some lip gloss on her and maybe just a light color blush on her and that is it OK,” I told her. She just smiled at me and then told me and Jasper to go downstairs to wait. So we did and when we got back downstairs the look on my family face was priceless. Emmett gave me a wolf whistle and Rose hit him in the back of the head and Jake's eyes were going to pop out of his head. I just laughed and was being pulled to the couch by Jasper. I sat in his lap and we watched Jake beat Emmett in a couple of games and then Alice came into view at the top of the stairs.
“OK ladies and gentlemen, I would like to present Ava Rose Whitlock Cullen,” Alice said. We all looked then and Ava was coming down the stairs holding Alice hand and was looking so very beautiful. Don't get me wrong but she is always beautiful but now she was very beautiful looking. She had on a purple dress that came to her knees. Then her hair was curled up and just looked so wow on her. She did not even look four then. She looked to be a very small six or even seven. “Oh Alice, you are awesome. I mean Ava is always beautiful but wow Alice just wow,” Jasper told her. “Thank you thank you everyone. Now are we all ready to go?” “I looked at everyone and they all looked ready and then we all went to get into our cars. Me, Jasper, Ava, and Jake rode in the van with mom and dad. Then Rose, Emmett, Alice and Edward rode in Edward's car. Then we were off to go get a Christmas tree. We followed Edward and we ended up going to Seattle. We found a tree farm and all parked. When we all got out Alice called for us to come into a group. “OK family, split up into groups and when you find a tree that is at least 10 feet or a little bigger than call for me and I will look at it,” she told us. So me, Jasper, Ava and Jake took off looking for the perfect tree.
After looking at just about all the trees on the lot Ava yelled and told us to come here. So I saw her hugging a tree and laughed. “Mommy, daddy and Jakey, I found this one and I like it. Can we get it please?” she asked us. “Well honey, let me call for Alice and then well see,” I told her. “Alice, family follow my voice. I think we may have found the tree,” Jasper called just loud enough for our family to hear him. A couple of minutes passed and then we were all looking at the tree that Ava found. Alice looked it over and then had a big smile on her face. “Family, Ava has found our tree for Christmas,” Alice told us. I looked at Ava and she had a big smile on her face. Alice went to look for a worker and then it hit me. “How are we going to get this thing home?” I asked. Just then Alice came back with someone and smiled at us. “Well family, this gentleman here said that they will deliver it to the house for us. So if the guys will show them how to get to the house and then set the tree up. Then us girls are going shopping for decorations for the tree and the house,” Alice told them. So the guys took the van and Alice drove Edward's car.
We ended up at the mall because they have a huge Christmas store with everything you needed to decorate you tree and house. “So Alice, what is our colors or theme for the house and tree?” Mom asked her. “Well how about all the colors of Christmas. Like red, blue, green, yellow, orange and so one but all matching at the same time,” she told us. “Alice, why are we decorating the outside?” its just going to be us seeing it,” Rose asked. “No Rose, its just not us going to be seeing it. You have the wolf pack seeing it and their family's and its more of because I want to,” Alice told her. So we all went into different directions to find stuff for the tree and house. Me and Ava were on our own looking around at all the pretty stuff. I found some stuff that would look really nice on the tree and even found stuff for her room and mine and Jasper's room. I saw Alice looking at something so I walked over there with Ava in the buggy. I saw what she was looking at then. It was a huge wreath that you can decorate the way you want. “Bella, help me carry this thing up to the front,” she told me and then winked. I just laughed and then I saw Rose and mom. “Rose, mom come here for a minute please,” I called to them. “Will yall watch Ava for a minute? I am going to help Alice carry this thing up front and then we will be back,” I told them. They told me that they will and then me and Alice grabbed the wreath and carried it to the front. We got to the front and told the person up front that we were getting this and will be back to get it when were done. So then we went back to the others.
We stayed in that store for two hours shopping and we got a lot of stuff for the tree and the house. So then we went up front to check out. When we got checked out it all came to $600. “Um Alice, how are we going to get this stuff home?” I asked her. “Well, let me call the guys and tell them to take out some of the seats in the van and to come pick up the big stuff and us girls will bring the stuff that will fit in the car,” she told us. So Alice called the guys and they said they will be here in an hour and I decided to do a little Christmas shopping for Jasper. “Alice, me and Ava will be back in a bit. I want to do a little shopping for Jasper. So call me when the guys get here and we will meet yall back here,” I told her. “OK Bella, we will see you two in a bit then,” she told me. Then I grabbed Ava and we went shopping. I found a shop that had all kinds of guy stuff in it, so me and Ava went in there. I grabbed a buggy and put Ava in it and then we went shopping. I found a world war two chess set that he has been wanting so I grabbed it. Then I found some books and some music he would love. Ava picked him out a mans bracelet that she wanted engraved with our names on it. It was a change bracelet that had a plate on it saying I LOVE DADDY. So I got it for her to give to Jasper.
We were in the store for about 30 minutes when I got a call from Alice. “Bella, the guys are here so get checked out and meet us here,” she told me and then hung up. So I pushed the buggy to the front and told the lady I wanted the bracelet engraved with mine and Ava's name and then we checked out our other stuff while we waited for them to get done with the bracelet. Ava also picked out something for Jake. It was a coffee cup with a wolf that looked like him and wanted me to paint her name on it. And I told her that I would do that for her. After they got done I payed for the stuff and made sure that Jasper and Jake could not see what we got them. Then we walked to the Christmas store and they we getting the stuff together. I helped them carry the stuff and loaded the car and van with all the stuff we got. Then we were off. It took us an hour to get home so we don't break anything.
We got home around one pm and Ava was asleep. So I carried her to her room and put her in bed and then I rejoined the family to help decorate the house and tree. It did not take us but two hours to decorate the whole house and it looked beautiful. We were all looking at the tree when Ava came downstairs rubbing her eyes. She saw the tree and ran to it. “Wow, look at the tree and the house it is so beautiful,” she told us. I picked her up and gave her a kiss. “Mommy, I'm hungry,” she told me. Then I saw mom got into the kitchen to fix Ava some lunch. While we waited for Ava and Jake's lunch to get done we all sat around talking about Christmas and then we talked about New Years. Then after we did some planing there we started to talk about the wedding. Then mom called for Jake and Ava to come eat. Jake grabbed Ava and walked into the kitchen to eat. Then Jasper got up and pulled me with him and we went to our room.
I laid on the bed and he laid on top of me and started to kiss me. “Bella, I can't wait till we are married and we can live together for the rest of forever,” Jasper told me. “Same here honey, I love you so much and can't wait to be Mrs. Bella Whitlock Cullen,” I told him. Then we went back to kissing.
