Twas the Friday earlier than Christmas and all by the home.
Everybody was stirring, however no less than there was no mouse.

Leaving David to roll his eyes at every matching pair.
Household can be arriving quickly and the children couldn’t wait;
There’d be cookie adorning to do in the event that they didn’t come too late.
Some meals had been prepped, most presents had been wrapped,
And now all I needed was a protracted afternoon nap.
However the children, oh the children, they wouldn’t depart me alone.
I’d begin drift off then they’d soar on me and I’d moan.
However what to my wandering eyes ought to seem?
My TV- loaded with motion pictures for the top of the 12 months.
