Merry Christmas {de}Lights

No, this isn't my house.  But, it is on our annual Christmas lights drive!  (Actually, they do up a pretty spooktaculus Halloween themed display as well! :>)

The kidlets & I were late getting out on our eye spy adventure full of Christmas cheer this year.  Thankfully though, we did get to see many a twinkle & a glow.  And now...

I am sitting here in the quiet of my house
With only a clock ticking and oh my, I sure hope there's no mouse(!);
Handmade stockings are hung, above a gas fireplace with care,
In hopes that Kris Kringle will soon be there;
The children will be snuggled all quiet in their beds,
While images of a fat man & his reindeer flit in their heads;
And hubs sound asleep & me, here with you
Presents await pretty paper, tape, and tissue...

Oh me, oh my, there's still more to wrap?!
My goodness, what keeps me here,
May I ask that?!

Well, if I might answer my own question, the answer is YOU!  Thank you for visiting, reading, saying hello.  I can't tell you how much I enjoy reading your comments, connecting, & visiting so many of you!

To any & all who are celebrating, Merry Christmas!!  I do hope it is one of cheer, with a light or two, maybe some holly & mistletoe, and most of all, a smile.  And of course, if you're not singing carols, trimming a tree, or lighting a candle, I still wish you a most smile worthy day!
