‘Twas the night before Christmas and I was writing my blog,
When my husband distracted me with a glass of spiked eggnog.
Blogging aside there was much to be done,
Presents to be wrapped which was not going to be fun.
Abby was nestled all snug in my bed,
While visions of presents danced in her head.
I hoped she would sleep without causing a fuss,
Otherwise Chris and I were likely to cuss.
Stockings were empty waiting to be filled,
While I tried to drink my eggnog before it became unchilled.
Presents got wrapped, stockings got stuffed,
Chris watched football until I had enough.
Ready for bed we heard a clatter,
Chris ran to he door to see what was the matter.
A fat man in red ran across the driveway,
We thought it was Santa but said no way!
Thumping and stumping was heard on the roof,
Could it be the the sound of each little hoof.
Reindeers above pulling a big sleigh,
I said maybe it was really Santa, Chris said no way!!
I listened for awhile then finished my blog,
while Chris kept watch and finished his eggnog.
Slightly startled and tired we finally went to bed,
Sleep came quickly while thoughts of Santa danced in our head.
The next morning we woke to such a sight,
a morning so beautiful, so filled with light.
Before Abby awoke we dressed for a run,
and dare I say that the run was actually fun!!!
We arrived home in time to see Santa so near,
on his sleigh being pulled by 8 large reindeer.
I heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight,
“Happy Christmas to all and to all a good night!”
We watched as Santa left on his sleigh,
neither one of us with one word to say.
Abby and Angelica awoke to many presents under the tree,
while Chris and I sat and watched them with glee!!!
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!!!! HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!!!
