The Day after Christmas

Twas the day after Christmas and all through my home
Not a surface was uncluttered wherever  I roam.
The stockings were strewn all across the floor
The recycling was spilling out the closet door

The children were sleeping off their sugar high
“Too much egg nog and cookies and candy”, I sigh.

Mama wanders aimlessly wondering what to clean up
“I know!  I’ll put a new blog post up!”

The kids had a blast with all their new toys
Seeing them all play together brings us great  joy.
The grandparents have discovered the thrill of Wii bowling
But  rock band is what gets me going!

I hope your holiday was wonderful  for you
Filled with love and family and happiness too.
So from our family to yours, we say with delight,
“Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!”
