Merry Christmas!

“The children were nestled all snug in their beds…”
and we drank heavily while cleaning out the fridge.

They went to bed and I want the poem to end there. Tonight we sat with glazed looks on our faces, excited for the weekend, Christmas, and big travel; but pretty much dreading doing the Santa work of wrapping and placing all the gifties.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

Or a set of kitchen tongs (he loves the tongs…we actually got a small pair to put in his stocking this year).

Okay, now your turn...
