Day 357: 12 days of christmas :: twas the night before christmas

24 Dec

Twas the night before Christmas,
and all through the house…

There were at least four creatures stirring,
(hoping to catch some turkey before it hit the floor.)

We are nestled in pajamas all ready for bed,
While visions of Iron Man on blue ray,
dance through all the boys’ heads.

Snow is on the way.
The shopping is all done.
Presents are opened.
Songs have been sung.

Some gifts came from a boyfriend
In the form of a (right hand) ring
To replace the one that broke last year
That belonged to Mama Sling.

The holiday just started,
And now it is almost over.
But the best is yet to come,
Because it is the memories we’ll savor.

Gone will be the tree,
Off will melt the snow.
Down will come the wreaths,
A wassailing we won’t go.

But right now it is Christmas Eve,
A very special holiday.
So how appropriate it should be,
That it is also Lovemore Monday.

And that’s why…
I. Love. It.

Merry Christmas to you and yours.
(And …to all a good night!)
