‘Twas the Night Before Christmas

24 Dec

‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through mom’s house

Christmas movies were playing as we all lounged around

The stockings were hung by the TV with care

In hopes that mom would fill them with her usual flare

The family was nestled all snug on the couch

Eating ice cream and cookies like a common slouch

With mom in her sweats and I in my pajamas

We had just settled in for a night of laughs and dramas

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter

My dad and brother sprang forth to see what was the matter

Away to the four wheelers they flew in a flash

So quickly that we worried they would crash

With clouds rolling in and no stars up above

They couldn’t see anything to grab a hold of

When what to their wondering eyes should appear

But a raccoon setting the alarm off, or maybe a deer

When nothing appeared to have caused the alarm

They returned to the house for a little Arnold at the funny farm

So as I sit with my family on this Christmas Eve

I am blessed beyond measure for the gifts I’ve received

As I settle in for rest of the night

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
