Transcription: "I'm glad we wore our galoshes," says Elizabeth to Harry Dog. Their friends Alice Rabbit and Hilary Cat are waiting for them when they get home. "We found a lovely tree," says Elizabeth. Then they get right to work because it is a big job to trim the tree and, you know, it isn't every little girl and dog and cat and rabbit who can do it. They work hard. "Ohhhhh" The tree is all trimmed but they don't have a star for the top. "I'll go get one," says Elizabeth. "Ho, ho!" he says. "Here we are!"
