I'm ready...now where is Santa?

Just seventeen days til Christmas.
Just seventeen days to wait.
I can hardly wait to see what I get,
on this Christmas day.

My stockings are hung,

in the window with care

cause I don't have a chimney...

and I don't think he cares.

My gingerbread man is dancing with glee.

He's happy he's out of the closet & free.


Daisy, our cat, is keeping watch

for the fat man in red,

who arrives with reindeer

pulling a sled.

The tree is lit and all aglow...

and all that is missing

are new shiny toys.

My table is set,

waiting for guests.

Just bring out the fudges

and the banana breads too.

Christmas cookies, roast turkey & ham

are just a few of the delights,

that will be on hand.

And of course...

We must'nt forget the REAL reason we celebrate Christmas!

I loved seeing all your decorations!
Daisy will be the first to stop the man in red from her vantage point!

Absolutely, we must remember 'the reason for the season'. Such a sweet nativity. Your decorations are so pretty. I especially love the cute stocking. Do you suppose Daisy will invite Santa in, or hiss at him?
You're quite the poet
sandy dear :)
Since you're all ready could you come and help me? I'm way behind!

I love that elf! You have just reminded me that I did not bring out any of my elves this year. I might have to go dig a few out this weekend.
