The Night After Christmas

I wrote this last year, thought it would be fun to repost.  Hope you all had a wonderful day today!!




Twas the night after Christmas
And all through the house
Not a creature was stirring
Except for Mom's Mouse

The stockings were flung
On the floor without care
As the kids and St Nick
Had already been there.

The boys were all snuggled
Upstairs in their beds
New toys and new stuffies
Lay all 'round their heads

Dad on his laptop
Me on my blog
Had just fed the wood stove
another fat log.
.
When out on the carpet
Arose such a chatter
I hopped up from my laptop
To see what's the matter.

Away to the living room
I ran with a start
To see what had startled
The beat of my heart.
.
On the floor I had spied
Something small red and furry
A Tickle Me Elmo
Had awoke with a fury.

I shut the toy off
and picked the thing up
Then back to my chair
to my warm coffee cup

Long days filled with family, love
And joy we've been blessed
And now in good need
Of a long winter's rest.


We turned off the tv
Laptop and the lights
Merry Christmas to all
And to all a good night!!!
