“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.
So they’re snuggled. And we’re immobilized by the stillness and quiet.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
Put lemon curd in youknowwho’s stocking. tee hee hee.
Merry Chee to the Nut family! and to you, a good night’s sleep.
LOL. I put a BBQ in his stocking, as per your suggestion, so next time there will be steak after a week of PB&J.
Merry Glitter and Puffy Stickers to you and to all whom you cherish a great night!
Here’s hoping your day turns out exactly the way you need it to!
Here’s wishing you safe travels and happy, smiling faces on Christmas morning….
Merry Christmas! It took me an entire evening hiding in the basement wrapping presents. I do not want to tie another bow this year!!!
Merry Christmas to you and you family.
Happiest wishes for lots of CHEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
I wish I had a Christmas Eve like that. Lucky! ;-)
OMG. I snorted my tea with “and we drank heavily while cleaning out the fridge.”
So THAT’S the secret!
You are too funny!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours!
Merriest of Merries to your household!
We enjoyed the last Christmas when we could purchase Tankbaby’s gifts right in front of him, knowing that he would be equally happy to open them or forget he’d seen them if we gave him a nice block instead. Or a set of kitchen tongs (he loves the tongs…we actually got a small pair to put in his stocking this year).
You had me at “and we drank heavily while cleaning out the fridge.” I knew there was a better ending for that poem.
PS Merrry Christmas and all that jazz!! Hope you are all enjoying your holidays. Miss you!
