Okay, everyone if you like this, post a review and I will post more good stuff on this.

Thanks you guys are great !!!

"If I had known me playing with kids was going to do this to you, I'd have done it a long time ago.", Edward smiled, feeling her kisses against his neck as they snuggled in bed that night.

"You were so cute, you were so great with them!", she smiled, cradling his face in both her hands, planting a small kiss on the dent in his chin, "I told you you'd be great. They all LOVE you."

"Oh listen.", Edward stopped her, "I had the best idea. You could bring all the kids over here for Christmas Eve, and we'll have the party then. That way, they have a nice party, and I get to be with you, and we have Christmas day together."

"Really?", Bella smiled, "You wouldn't mind having the kids all being here? Is it safe?"

"Absolutely.", Edward answered, "Jasper is going skiing with Alice that night. They exchange their gifts alone in private."

"Oh, speaking of presents.", Bella brought the subject up before she forgot.

"Oh no, Bella, don't.", Edward almost whined.

"The same rule is on about the buying of gifts.", she raised a brow, "No money is to be spent."

"That is ridiculous, Bella.", he complained, "This is the one day of the year it's acceptable for me to buy you something nice."

"No, I will feel bad.", she frowned a bit, "I can't buy you something super expensive, so it's not fair."

"Do you know how hard it is to come up with a nice gift without spending any money on it?", he almost yelled, "I have money, please, let me spend a little of it."

"You know," Bella felt a little angry now, "You guys have had money for so long you don't even think about it anymore. I'll bet you don't even know how much money you have."

"I'm not trying to be a snob.", he thought about it now, "I just want to spoil you a little bit. Come on, Bella, let me."

"I'll bet you've never even had a job before, a real job." Bella was just realizing it now.

"What does that have to do with anything?" Edward asked, ashamed of the truth.

"Have you?" Bella looked down upon him, frowning.

"I died when I was 17!" Edward almost squeaked, "There were no teenager jobs back then."

"And since then, no jobs at all?" Bella asked, "Not even one?"

He was thinking about it, laying on his back, "Well, no."

"Oh man!" Bella sounded jealous.

"Well, I might have, if I needed to work." Edward stated, "But it was never necessary, so I didn't see the point of it."

"Work isn't just to get money." Bella lectured, "It's to learn to be part of a team and it builds character and pride in yourself."

"Bella" Edward raised a brow, "Do you really think it'll bring me any pride to wear some polyester uniform and ask people if they'd like fries with that?"

"You are a snob!" Bella accused, "I have a job."

"And that's wonderful." Edward sat up a bit, wanting to end this argument, "I am proud of you, you're a good worker."

"Okay, here's the deal for gifts." Bella decided, "You can get me something, but you can only spend money you've EARNED at a job – a teenager's job."

"Bella!" Edward's eyes rounded in terror, "That's insane!"

"Case closed." She finished, refusing to listen to him anymore on this.

He pouted in silence, sighing as she turned off the lights.

"Did you ask the kids if they wanted to come see the horses tomorrow?", Edward asked, trying to get out of his sad mood.

"Oh yea.", she answered, "They are going nuts over that ! Especially your new girlfriend. She loves horses. She writes it down on her Christmas list every year."

"You are my girlfriend.", Edward was still sounding miffed about the gift-job thing.

"Not according to the whole orphanage.", Bella teased, "In fact, I hear you two pledged your undying love for one another."

"She said she loved me, what was I supposed to do ? She was so sweet and innocent, I couldn't hurt her little feelings.", he had already told Bella this five times now. She really understood and told him it was fine with her, but she laughed wickedly, anyway, unable to speak.

"I still can't forget you playing dolls with her.", Bella was crying she was laughing so hard, "That was the funniest thing I've ever seen."

"Oh God.", Edward breathed, "Bella, you didn't tell Emmett about that, did you?"

"Not yet.", she giggled.

"Please don't Bella.", Edward pleaded, "I'll never hear the end of it. Please?"

"I'll think about it.", she smiled, feeling his arm curl around her waist.

"I love you, Bella.", his voice whispered into her ear, "Thank you…for today. It was a lot of fun."

"You're welcome Cedric.." She teased. closing her eyes, asking, "What kind of job are you going to apply for?"
