Twas the Week Before Christmas*

Twas the week before Christmas and all through our house
Is a hustle and bustle, but not from a mouse.

We've been wrapping, cooking, and running about.
Preparing for Christmas, everything on the to-do list marked out.

The gingerbread house and cookies have been made with great care,
The Christmas cards printed and sent off somewhere.
The gifts were nestled all snug under the tree,
Anticipating the family to gather 'round for some unwrapping.
This morning we went to the airport to get
Aunt Lulu and Uncle Jay Jay from out East, they'd been missed!
When it was all set and done we were ready for a nap,
In fact we might fall asleep on Santa's lap.

When out in the kitchen there arose such a clatter,
It was mom making dinner, nothing was the matter!
Running to the table, we all ran in a flash,
Pulled out our napkins, bowed our heads in a dash.

It was time for our big Christmas dinner you see,
We do it a day early, on Christmas eve.

We gobbled our food, our tummies now full.
We loaded in the car, come one, come all!!

To celebrate Jesus, His coming, His birth
The miracle of Christmas in a service at church.

With Molly on piano, and friends playing other things
The music was delightful as we worshiped our King.

The candles were lit as the congregation sang.
It was a beautiful moment as our voices rang.

Now we are back, snuggled in our house tight.
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

*I stole this idea from MckMama. Hope she doesn't mind :)
