Christmas Crunch

The gifts are all wrapped, except for the bows.
I’ve set all the ornaments out in neat rows.
The boxes are stowed for the next year’s gifts
I’m thinking that I could use a few fifths.

But we still have much more to do
We are having company -- more than a few
Nieces and nephews and kids and grands
I really could use several more hands.

There are groceries to buy; toilets to clean;
Our first Holler Holiday must be a big scene.
I’ve hired little Cassie to come over and help
She has impressed me as the perfect elf.

The house is dark; electricity has failed.
Thank goodness, most of our gifts were mailed.
We’ll wait until morning to complete our tree
Our first Christmas morning -- just my Santa and me.

MERRY CHRISTMAS! And to all a good night.
