The children are nestled all snug in their beds
While the list of things to do swirls in my head.
Gifts to wrap, candy to dip, cookies to bake,
Sausage balls to roll and a fruit cake to make.
Last minute shopping, something new to wear,
Hot pink color for the teenager's hair.
Stockings to hang, toys to put together,
A quick glance at the news to check the weather.
One last stop by the mall, one more package to mail,
Find baby Jesus and locate the Christmas bell.
The list isn't too long, I'm almost there,
The anticipation of Christmas looms in the air.
So up from the desk and off I go
With a twinkle in my eye and a ho, ho, ho!
