Merry Christmas!

Twas the day of Christmas and all through the house
no one was sleeping not even my spouse.

The stockings were hung down the bannister with care
so grateful that Grandma Webber's van had stopped here.

With Nate holding cocoa krispies
and Meg in a pose

Rach, Katie & Anna have smiles that are froze.
When all of a sudden there arose such a clatter
I really didn't bother seeing what was the matter.
The presents were opened as quick as a comet
and next thing you know our poor tree had to vomit.

So out to the backyard we ran like a flash
to turn boxes and paper into hazardous ash.

The table was set with my fine Christmas wares
and the sparkling cider that bubbles the nose hairs

So from the kids table that was without fight,
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

Thanks to our guests:Mom and Dad Webber, Ally and Wayland Williams, Wayland's mom and Grandma-LaNeeda and Jeannie.

What a fun way to celebrate! Cute idea to use poetry! It was so good to see you, if only for a minute, during the holidays! I miss seeing you as often as I used to...Happy New Year! (we just got back from your old stomping grounds:) and had a blast.
