Berdine's Five and Dime in Harrisville has been around since 1908. Even a hundred years later, he toys are still leaving kids of all ages with grins from ear to ear.

Erin said, "It's great."
"Have you ever been to a store like this?" Cebula asked Roy.
"No." he said.
Cebula said "So what did you think when you walked in?"
"I was like where are we," said Roy.

The manager gave this brother and sister, Roy and Erin, each a $12 gift certificate.

Afterwards Erin shouted across the room to Roy "Roy! Come here! I found a dolphin!
Roy replied "Dude, get it!"
"No you," she said.

It hasn't been easy for these two- moving a lot and now living in separate homes. Still they do make sure they spend time together.

One item on Erin's wish list for Santa is a bear with 1998 on it "Because I have a birth bear that has 1997 on it and I want a birth bear that has my brother's birth on it," said Erin.

Her big heart extends to loving others so much that she wants to become a doctor someday.

"I just want to help care for the people that has trouble and I want to help them," she said.

Fourth grader Roy isn't so sure about what he wants to be when he grows up but being the next sheriff isn't out of the question.

Now his favorite subject in school is recess. He likes playing video games and exploring the outdoors in general but there's something he's waiting to do. "No I haven't been hunting but I wish I have."

Roy like his sister also cares about taking care of four-legged friends especially one kind- "dogs, rottweilers, full blooded ones," Roy said.

However what he really wants for Christmas are some other items on his list. "Dear Santa- I would like PlayStation 2 PSP, WWE toys and a shirt, an alarm clock and a TV," Roy said.

Erin wrote "I want a porcelain doll that looks like me, a bear that has 1998 on it, earrings, a watch clock, an MP3 player, a sleeping mask, a key chain that says Dad, and a door doll."

They both want a forever home. "I just want it to be me and my sister," said Roy.

Erin said "I really don't care as long as my brother and two sisters are there I'm good."

A social worker said it's uncertain whether or not they'd be able to be live with their other two sisters.

Roy has thought about something else he'd like in a home. "My own room with a TV and a PlayStation 2."

For now they're enjoying each others company and waiting for that place to call their home.
