Twas the day before Christmas...

...and all through the house
all the children were stirring
and maybe a mouse :)
The oldest 2 cooked their own breakfast with care,
then even fed Sawyer, our little bear.
Mom and Dad lazed around in bed for an hour
but there's only so long a parent can cower!
Up got the mother to water the tree,
wipe someone's bum, maybe brew some tea.
Brew some tea?  Wrong house!  Get the Starbucks and hurry!
It's Christmas Blend time, this Momma can scurry
when there's coffee to brew
breakfast to make,
presents to wrap,
4 pies to bake!
For now though the house is so nice and quiet,
Mark's reading to Riker stories of Hobbits
and goblins and orcs and a bright shiny ring
and Sawyer and Trinity are into all kinds of things.
Later today though we'll sing Christmas songs,
read a great story and then go along
and celebrate Jesus' birth with our friends
then back home, eat lots of snacks and then send
3 little kids, hopped up on sugar, to bed
in hopes that all that food that we fed
them will not affect our precious sleep
and maybe, just maybe, they won't make a peep.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night
may all of your days be merry and bright.
May you understand the wonderful gift that God gave you
when Jesus, His Son, He sent here to save you
from all of your sin, FREE, CLEAN, made  BRAND NEW
and all that He want in return is just YOU!
He likes you, He loves you, He wants you to know Him,
Make this a great Christmas and leave your heart open
for His love to enter, to teach you, to change you
to hug you, to help you, to bless you and keep you!

Merry Christmas!

Love, The Westmans
