‘Twas Four Days Before Christmas,

When all through the house,

Only Kramer was stirring, in hopes of a mouse!

The socks were placed in the dryer to dry, desiring warm feet, as we waited with sighs.

Daisy was nestled all snug on our bed, while visions of frolicking danced in her head.

Les in his boxers, and I in my Tee, had just settled in for some really good TV.

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, we sprang up to see just what was the matter.

The moon on the ground shown the drenching of rain, it’d been pouring  for days with much to be gained.

When what to my wondering eyes should appear,  a miniature sleigh, and two mechanical deer.

It all worked in sequence, with lights blinking fast, a Santa with presents, set up on the grass!

The names of the reindeer we couldn’t make out, as hard as we tried to figure it out,

One had to be Rudolph with his nose shinning bright,  the other was Comet sitting just out of sight!

Off to the kitchen to make us some tea, we’ll eat a few cookies, while we watch more TV.

Counting the days ’till we open the gifts,

In our heads we knew it was the right thing to wish,

Everyone,  “A Merry Christmas,” and a warm cozy night!

With Christmas right around the corner, shopping finished, and only a few presents left to be wrapped, it’s finally time to kick back and take a deep breath!  Every year I think I’m going to cut my shopping in half, and then I see things someone wants, or needs, and I just can’t help myself!

Tell me, Where did you shop?

This year I was really a bad girl, and all my shopping,  with the exception of two gift cards came from the internet!  I’m not proud, I thought I was incredibly clever to be able to pull this off – shopping without leaving the office, sometimes even in my PJ’s!   The only thing better than ordering from Amazon, is if Santa himself dropped them down our chimney all wrapped and ready to go.  Wait a minute, we don’t have a chimney!  Scratch that…  I would leave a key under the mat if Santa would do that for me!

You’d trade for what?

Have a wonderful, blessed Christmas.  May  the time spent with friends and family be magical, and let’s hope Santa brings us all the outrageous gifts we fantasized  about throughout the year – the fast cars, and diamonds!  They’re a girls best friend you know!   For me it would be difficult to give up, but I would trade all the diamonds, fast cars, and hot men for time with family and friends in a California minute!
