Twas the Night Before Christmas
Twas the Night Before Christmas and all through the house not a creature was stirring. Well of course not, we've seen Prep and Landing with the Jr. Sheep. We know how to clear a room for Santa without the elves having to have extra work. Please we are herding dogs. As for mice, don't even suggest to the Mama there could be a mouse in the house. That could really ruin Christmas.
Mom and Dad have been busy all morning prepping for our guests who will start to arrive in a few hours. Mom wanted a picture of us under the Christmas tree. This is the last year with Grandma's Christmas tree. Grandma bought this tree when Mom was still in Jr. High and it has done more than its time. When Grandma moved out of state, Mom inherited the tree and all the ornaments. Mom was thinking about getting a new one at the end of last season, but by the time she looked, this tree looked better than the ones left over. Yesterday, she found one online she liked that came unlit. Mom has a thing about prelit trees and most of the ones in the stores she's seen all are prelit. So, she was very excited to find a sale on a tree she liked that has no lights. However, she still is feeling a little sad to see her childhood tree's last season.
