'Twas the night before Christmas and all thru the house
Every creature was stirring, yes even the spouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that our friends and family soon would be there....
The children were definetly not snuggled in their beds,
But visions of feasting was swirling in their heads.
And me in my apron and pa in his cap
Were dreaming of settling down for a long winter's nap....
