Twas Two Weeks Before Christmas (Abridged)

Twas two weeks before Christmas, when all through our house
Everything was stirring, but thankfully there wasn't a mouse
(I don't think mom could handle that . . . .)

These sockie things were hung by our fireplace with silver hooks,
Not sure what they are for, maybe just for looks.

I'm sleeping now all night in my crib,
with drips of rice cereal dancing on my bib!

The days are pretty cold, so I wear a cap,
and I'm even learning how to take a long nap.

Mom and Dad decorated the house really nice,
we've even enjoyed a nice fire once or twice.

There's talk of this dude who brings presents galore,
I don't know about all that, but I am sitting up more and more.

Mom is sending these cards full of happiness and cheer,
They bring wishes of joy, peace, and hope to friends far and near.

Mom and Dad show me this pretty scene,
I'm learning each day that this is what it all means:

A baby like me was born long ago,
and we want all our friends and family to know . . .

This season means more than hurry and fuss
Jesus came to bring life to ALL of us!

Merry Christmas from Callen!
