Michael's Poem

I have a seriously talented husband. He wrote this little "poem" for me today. It's simply perfect! For anyone who doesn't know, Ajax is our dog, and we have a blow up Frosty in our yard.

Twas the night before Christmas when all through our house,
Not a child was sleeping not even a spouse.
The stockings were hung by the fireplace with care
In hopes that Ajax would not reach them up there

The children were all nestled all snug in our bed
While Mikey's snoring was echoing through all of our heads
Mama on her laptop and me on Farmville
Was just getting ready to get half a sleeping pill

When across the room there rose such clatter
Mama raced to Carter's Oximiter to see what’s the matter
Away to Carter's crib she went with a dash
Tripping over Jovie's My Little Pony stash

The moon on the breast of the new fallen snow
Made it so Frosty's blower would not blow
When what our wondering eyes should appear
A big smile from Carter which gave Mama a tear

With Mikey and Jovie wanting a drink
Dada was yelling get your cup from the sink
More rapid than Eagles the kids now run
Mama yelling your going in your own beds when done

Now Mikey now Jovie now Carter and Dada
Get Ajax and Bud get out of my bed
To your rooms you kids go and the cage for the dogs
Everybody to bed so I can finish the blog

With silence at last and all kids all tucked in
Mama and Dada could finally do some cuddlin'
When a knock on the bedroom door should appear
It was Mikey just wondering when he could sneak in here

Now after Midnight the clock shows
We can now finally rest our heads on our pillows
With Mikey, Jovie, and Carter now having sweet dreams
We can all rest and wait to see what Santa Brings

Merry Christmas!
