Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas From My Family to Yours

Merry Christmas 2014

Twas Christmas morning

and all through the house

were the sounds of laughter and glee

from me, to our new baby and even my spouse.

Of course we’d awoken

a couple times in the night

to cries from the little one

but nothing would keep us from smiling bright.

We’d invited some friends

to join us for a drink and a meal

and soon they’d be here

to eat, sing and squeal.

Ornaments were hung in the window with care

and a little tree sat on the table just there.

Our little babe was dressed anew,

got a massage and a clean diaper too.

We’d cooked the potatoes

and the meat was ready.

Hopefully everyone had brought a dish to share

or else we’d be eating spaghetti.

It was okay,

it was alright,

our friends would understand

it would be a good night.

Because I’d just had a baby in November

it was difficult to find time or even remember

to decorate the house and of course clean it too,

but isn’t that what babies do?

They’re just so cute,

even when they’re crying,

the time had gotten away from me,

it had really been flying.

I hadn’t been outside,

except to take short walks,

I was super excited

to see some my friends and have some talks.

The baby was awake all from 8 until 1,

which meant I hadn’t had time to get anything done.

The friends arrived

and easily understood.

They would help us prepare

and do what they could.Merry Christmas 2014

We scarfed down the food

with merriment and delight.

We played some fun games

and I showcased my competitive might.

We opened some gifts

and we laughed together.

It was truly a merry time

despite the cold weather.

Santa even came

to meet our newest little one.

He gave her a Rudolph keepsake

so that even she could have some fun.

It was a great holiday together

and even though they aren’t technically family,

it felt like it should

and went by quite happily.

We hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas celebrating however you celebrate with friends, family or pets near and far.
