Christmas at our house

Lunch guests
Twas the week before Christmas
The presents all wrapped
Cold I am fighting
My energy's tapped

Since I am coughing
Christmas deferred
Children and laughter
Remains yet unheard

The end of the year
Nothing better than
watching bulbs grow!
It comes very quick
Where did it go?
Why'm I so sick?

Today I am grateful
For backyard distractions
(Not presents and parcels)
But daily distractions

It seems as if cats,
The deer, and the turkey
Have been out shopping
Seemingly quirky
Ollie's catnip banana

For Christmas and birthday
I had many treats
Sherry and gift cards
And even sweets

Me spoiled rotten is
How it has been
My hubby's the best man
That I've ever seen.

Mushing her stocking
Sady's Xmas mouse

Sady & JB watch football!


Who has been sleeping here?

 I know who!
Momma, you sleeping?

I love the poem :-) Good husbands are a real blessing. Cats....well, they think they are blessings and sometimes they are! Your deer shots are beautiful. What great gifts.
