Disclaimer: I do not own any of the characters. They all belong to the wonderful Stephenie Meyer. I just grabbed them and drove them crazy for my own entertainment.

A/N: So I felt like doing a bunch of Christmas stories based off Christmas songs in some way or another. Welcome to the first one. Hope you enjoy. Don't worry, if you read my other stories, I'm not giving up on them. I just got in the Christmas spirit and this emerged. :D



I pulled up to the house in my unnecessary vehicle, although it was beautiful. The wheels screeched, as I turned into my spot in the garage. Edward was automatically at my door, opening it before I could even unbuckle.

"Hello, love. How's Charlie? Everything going well with Sue?" Edward purred into my ear, as he brushed his lips down my neck.

"He-he's fine. They're fi-fine. I just went to pick up some of my old Christmas stuff." I stuttered out.

I was amazed that he could still have that effect on me and grateful that my blush could no longer give me away. He smiled that irresistible smile at me and helped me out of the car, even though my clumsiness had been gone for a while.

"So what did you pick up?" he asked as he helped grabbed the bags from the trunk.

"Some old Christmas CDs, my classic Christmas pajamas, and my old unused Christmas cards." I said shrugging, as we walked into the house, greeted by a sweet, Christmas smell.

I walked into the kitchen to see my baby Renesmee making Christmas sugar cookies with Esme, Rosalie, and Alice. Renesmee immediately jumped off her stool and ran over to me. She placed her small hands to my temples.

Mommy, mommy! We're making cookies for Santa! Will I get to meet him? She thought, showing me a picture of the jolly man of Christmas lore.

"Maybe honey. Santa only comes for good boys and girls and only if you go to bed early on Christmas eve." I said smiling down at her.

She smiled a wide smile up at me, as she ran back to the kitchen, her bronze curls bouncing against her back, reminding of the lovely man, who I heard sneaking up behind me.

"Edward, this isn't Halloween, it's Christmas. You aren't supposed to scare me." I said turning around in the blink of an eye, scaring Edward instead.

He placed his hand over his still heart, as if I had put him on the edge of a heart attack. He regained his composure and continued the last few steps between us, pulling me into a loving embrace.

Behind him I could see Emmett and Jasper wrestling with a large, fir tree. Neither of them were balancing their sides, making it difficult to place in the holder, even for vampires. I snickered at them, as I pulled myself from Edward's arms and walked over to the tree. I straightened the tree into it's stand in one swift motion, earning myself a 'thank you' glance from Jasper and a glare from Emmett.

He left grumbling, as he went out into the garage to grab the boxes upon boxes of ornaments.

I took a walk around the tree, taking in the sweet smell of fresh Christmas tree.

"Where did you guys get this one?" I asked Jasper.

"We cut it ourselves. Right past the old clearing there's a path to a whole bunch of these trees." he said proudly.

"Impressive. Seems you forgot the wildlife though. There's still a nest in here. With an egg that was too wrapped up to fall out." I said, peering at the tiny gray, speckled egg.

I reached in and carefully lifted the nest out of it's spot. The egg stayed unmoving.

"Renesmee, come here a moment." I called to the kitchen.

"Yes, mom?" she asked, bounding up to my side.

"Can you take this egg to Esme and have her make an incubator while you hold it in your hands? Your hands are the warmest and will keep the egg healthy." I said, placing the nest in her outstretched hands.

"Sure mommy. But what's an incubator?" she said looking down at the tiny egg in her hand.

"It's a heating unit for hatching animals from eggs. Now run along, so we can keep the baby bird safe." I said, patting her on the low back to push her back towards the kitchen.

She carefully made it back over to Esme, while Esme pulled out a metal platter. The nest was placed on top of it, a clear plastic, rounded cover put on top. She added a small lamp next to the glass as a makeshift incubator.

"We can pick up a real one after we are finished with the cookies." Esme yelled over to me.

I nodded and turned back to the tree, seeing that Emmett had brought in the six boxes they had of ornaments and Christmas decorations.

"Jesus, you guys like Christmas?" I exclaimed, going over to the first box.

"Hey, don't make fun of His holiday." Emmett said in mock sternness.

"Well, when you have several Christmases to spend, you start to gather a collection, Carlisle said from beside me.

"Well, I guess that's true. Especially since you have all this money and can buy as many ornaments as you want." I said, surveying the several different Christmas themed ornaments.

"It may help that it's my favorite holiday." Alice said brightly from the kitchen.

I started to pull out a nice cobalt selection of ornaments. When I held it up to the lights, it cast a blue glow all around me.

"I always said blue looks best on you." Edward said from directly behind me.

"Really? I think it looks better on the tree." I said smirking, as I put the first ornament on a nearby branch.

Edward reached down and started grabbing several more of the delicate, blue bulbs, placing them sporadically among the tree branches.

"Why don't we put on that CD you brought?" Carlisle said from across the room.

"Sure. It's on the coffee table, next to my Christmas cards." I said, over my shoulder, pulling out some gorgeous turquoise ornaments to add.

I heard the radio CD drive open up. He placed both the CDs from the two disc set into corresponding spots so that they would play one after another.

The first song drifted through the room, giving me that fuzzy Christmas feeling. I used to love singing along to all these old Christmas songs, but feeling like I paled in comparison to the Cullen singing voices, I simply hummed along.

It was "Simply Having a Wonderful Christmastime."

The moon is right
The spirits up
Were here tonight
And that's enough
Simply having a wonderful Christmastime
Simply having a wonderful Christmastime

"This is such a perfect song to start off with." Alice cooed from the kitchen, where she placed another batch of cookies in the oven.

"Why do you say that, honey?" Jasper asked, while hanging wreaths around the downstairs.

"Because we're finally all a true family. We have everyone we need here. Well, minus one." She said, flashing a wink at Renesmee.

Renesmee's cheeks flared up in the blush that used to be all too familiar on my own cheeks. She had obviously been referring to Jacob.

Renesmee, now had the body of a seven-year-old and apparently had her first little girl crush, though we trusted Jacob not to act on any such feelings until she was fully grown. It still upset me that Jacob had imprinted on my daughter, but I couldn't deny my daughter the ultimate happiness he provided for her. I knew that he would take car of her when she was finally grown up and if she ever decided to go off alone with him.

"I'm just glad that I finally get to spend a Christmas with you guys." I said, smiling at Edward.

I saw pain flicker across his eyes for a moment, as he thought of that winter when he had disappeared, but it quickly disappeared and that familiar crooked grin took its place.

"Ooh! We should take Bella on our family tradition, back where we used to live before Forks!" Alice squealed.

Simply having a wonderful Christmastime
Simply having a wonderful Christmastime

The choir of children sing their song
Ding dong, ding dong
Ding dong, ding ohhhh

The Cullen men groaned, especially Edward and Emmett.

"Anyone care to explain?" I asked, totally clueless.

"Caroling." Jasper said with contempt.

"Esme used to make us back before Emmett, but we gave up that same year. We were good, but we scared everybody because we were so odd." Edward said.

"Then once the little one over here joined us, she decided to reinstate the caroling policy." Rosalie said, gesturing at Alice with a frosting tube.

"What's caroling?" Renesmee said, not looking up from the cookie she was decorating.

"It's when you go door to door, singing Christmas songs, and spreading Christmas cheer." Alice said excitedly, clutching the frosting bag to her chest, as she sighed in content.

"Yeah, well, singing and I don't get along." I said, pulling out a long stretch of silver garland for the tree.

I heard that the song had been restarted in the background, so I looked over to see who had done it. Alice was standing next to the stereo with a huge grin.

"This song was our favorite one to sing. It's always good to start off with since it's so happy and fun." she said in a bubbly voice, skipping back to the kitchen.

"Like you would ever let us forget." Edward groaned, opening up a second box of decorations.

"Why would you want to?" Alice huffed.

"Do we really need to go into this?" Jasper said, spreading a wave of calm around to avoid argument.

"Fine. But I still think we should go caroling now that we have Bella and Renesmee." Alice said in an indignant tone.

Everybody stayed silent as the song was finishing its final verse.

The moon is right
The spirits up
Were here tonight
And that's enough

Simply having a wonderful Christmastime
Simply having a wonderful Christmastime
Simply having a wonderful Christmastime
Simply having a wonderful Christmastime


"Let's go get that incubator." Esme said, ushering Renesmee towards the garage.

"I'll come with." Carlisle called from the back room he had run off to.

"We gotta finish decorating." Jasper said, grabbing the Christmas lights for the front of the house.

"I'll get the ladder." Emmett added.

"Bella and I have to finish this tree." Edward said, as I nodded along.

"Well, Rosalie. What's your excuse?" Alice said, turning on her.

"I have some last minute shopping to do." she blurted out running for her car.

"Ooh shopping? Count me in!" Alice said, running after Rosalie.

I let out a sigh of relief, as Alice disappeared out the door. This would be an interesting Christmas.
