'Twas the Month Before Christmas

'Twas the month before Christmas and all through the house
not a person was healthy (except for one spouse).
Outside was too windy to play in cold air,
And we were really too tired to go anywhere.

Those old winter blues were settling in
At the thought of being homebound again
for a whole season of snow and unfriendly ice;
We knew indoor diversion would be oh, so nice.

And so way before Christmas, before it was time,
We gave out a present (a holiday crime).
We didn't wrap it or stick on a bow
But Little Biscuit still knew the way toddlers know

That something exciting was on its way--
something was special about this blah day.
So what to his wondering eyes did appear,
A wooden parking garage with all its great gear!...
A car wash, toll booth, and a gas pump, woo-hoo!
Four levels of fun - an elevator too...
A pad for the chopper that came with the set,And bright wooden cars that are as cute as cars get.Roadways and ramps and street toys galore,
Hours of playtime, and maybe some more!Vrooming and beeping and such joyous tot chatter,
I sprang from my stupor to see what was the matter!
Boredom and brain fog had fled! Not in sight!
Merry Christmas (it's early!) and to all a good night :D

Wow is all I can say! What an awesome redo of "The Night Before Christmas"! Little Biscuit looks like he is having a blast with his parking garage. Merry early Christmas :)

I echo Vicki - Merry early Christmas! That garage looks awesome! I'm very impressed with your rendition of the poem! How long did that take you to write?

Thank you for the Merry Early Christmas wishes...we did have a great time! And you are all so sweet about the poem...but honestly, if I was really all that talented I'd have written a book or something by now lol :) But I'm glad you liked it anyway :D
