'Twas the Day Before Christmas

'Twas the day before Christmas, and all through the house,
Not a creature is resting, from parent to mouse.

With work and with school and with choir gigs galore,
It hardly seems like we live here anymore!

The shopping bags are stacked in the preschool with care.
And we hope that our children don't sneak into there.

And food? Just the candies and cookies and bread.
We're hoping Santa brings some real food on his sled.

Neighbor gifts we delivered. More shopping? How merry!
Green salad and pasta and pies made of berry--

All ready for Grandpa and Grandma's to trek.
Mom's getting all stressed. In fact, she's a wreck!

But tomorrow's a day filled with family and fun,
As we peacefully celebrate the birth of the Son.

So we'll drop into bed with that sweet thought in sight.
Merry Christmas to you, and to you a good night!
