The Night Before Christmas

'Twas the night before Christmas
When all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring
Not even a mouse.

Even the kitties
Were snug in their beds,
With visions of Santa Paws
Visiting in their heads.

The ice storm outside
Over the past couple of days,
Couldn't dampen the spirits
Of the Cooks, or dismay.

Alexandra was busy
Wrapping all kinds of gifts,
Mike and Janice were shoveling
To get rid of snow drifts.

Robax was the rule
To remedy their sore backs,
A shot of Bailey's or two
Before hitting the sack.

The post office and stores
Where they worked were aflutter,
With last minute shoppers
All grumpy and a'mutter.

This December's been cold
With much ice and much snow,
More so than years past
Our sore backs, they should know!

But the happiest times
Of the season lie ahead,
Full bellies in their future
Long sleeps in their beds.

Presents wait to be opened
Strewn under the tree,
Even Crocky and Marbles
Wait in curiousity.

God knows we're all thankful
For all blessings bestowed,
By our reason for the season
Through the whole year, we know.

And may blessings be yours
Friends and family tonight,
Merry Christmas to all
And to all a good night!
