It's the Day Before Christmas

At the home of the Coopers
We've been quite busy
We've been troupers.

Daddy played Santa
With help from my Mama
While I stayed at home
In fleecy pajamas.

To an old friend's house
Santa Claus ran.
Because it is raining,
He traveled by minivan.

The Kindergatos are showing
Less attitude
And there's a shiny new collar
And tag for the Little Dude.

There are cookies galore
Of sugar and ginger.
Piled on plates,
Each one is a winner.

There's presents and cookies
The candles are lit
Lemon Drops mixed--
We're relaxing a bit!

The kitties in Sweet Spots
Are happily napping
And I've got a couple
Of presents needing wrapping.

But for the moment I'm sitting
And re-reading Twilight
So Merry Christmas to all
And to all a good night!

We're about to have tamales (it's a staple for Mr. Greenthumb on Christmas Eve), and then it's off to church for the 10:30 service; choir call is at 9:45pm. :P

Merry Christmas, Meg! :)

Oooh, Tamales. We had Hamburger Helper (Taco mix) and salad. Tomorrow we'll have a roast, potatoes au gratin, and ambrosia salad.
