Christmas Part I - Twas the Night Before Christmas...

When all through the house
Every creature was stirring
Especially my spouse.

The children were dressed
in Christmas pajamas
that were sent to them
from their Papas and Grammas.

When out in the yard
There arose such a clatter
We sprang to the porch to see
What was the matter.

When what to our knowing eyes
should appear?
But the neighborhood teens
With fireworks, oh dear.

We hurried inside amidst
presents galore!
We stared with wide eyes,
What a site to adore.

We ripped through paper and
ribbons so quickly
We said thank you and moved on
To the next gift quite quickly.

Then on to dinner, what luck,
it was ready to eat.
We spoke and we pondered of
what made Christmas so neat.

Presents are wonderful,
Yes this is true.
But the real meaning of Christmas
Seems known by so few.

We spoke of celebrating Christ
And his birth
A miracle that helps us realize
What we are worth.

So this Christmas a wish
As Santa takes flight,
Merry Christmas to all
And to all a good night.

Now some pictures...
