Santa's on his way?


Santa's on his way
But there's been a slight delay
The reindeer, tipsy with egg nog
Crashed ol' Santa's sleigh.
But "Do not fear, do not fret,"
Santa laughs and says,
"Ho, ho, ho, watch and see
"I ain't quitting yet".

Though he bumped His big ol' head
Upon his ol' red sled
And though his glasses
And his mind
Are just a bit awry
Santa will come visit you
He'll fly down from the sky.

The problem is that Santa knows
How you've behaved all year 
Hopefully, you've tried to be
A kind and gentle soul -
So you won't wake
On Christmas morn 
And find he's left you
One big lump of coal.

Santa needs some new glasses. Fun post.

No coal for me! (though with the power outage over the weekend, it might have come in handy!)

Merry Christmas to you.

No coal for me, I've been a good little girl. Well, that little part might be a bit of a stretch.

Cute poem---I hope you all have been nice and not naughty this past year. Coal can be so messy.

Did you notice that Kylee has on her Santa hat and her coat is covered in Christmas lights. She is a kooky girl. MB

I've been out delivering supplies to friends with no power so I hope for more than Coal. Merry Christmas to you both!

Happy Christmas to you and yours!

Thank God!
You're alive and still kicking.
I thought maybe you were off to 'play' that back nine beyond the golden gates.
Well, not really, but thought it might bring a big, pre-Christmas smile.

Ho ho ho, Lowell. I suspect I know which side of the naughty/nice ledger the old man has you listed on! Merry Christmas.

Santa found me all the way here in Berlin! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends. :)
