The week before Christmas

'Twas the week before Christmas, and all through the house
Every creature was stirring, because school was out.
The stockings were hung by the chimney all neat,
In hopes that they soon would be filled with a treat

With mom in her footsies

And some cold arctic wind

We all settled in for three weeks with the kids.

When out on the road there arose such a clatter
It was all the cold cars starting up with a sputter

I zoomed to go plug in the car with no fear.
But wait, this is Oregon, they don’t do that here.

The fluff on the lawn, the house and the trees,
Swirled into my nose as it flew with the breeze.
When What to my wondering eyes should appear
But a white covered tramp, and three kids in snow gear

They played the day through in the neighborhood court.
Went sledding, threw snowballs, and built a big fort.

And I heard them exclaim, as they came in for the night.
Tomorrow let’s have an even bigger snow fight!

( I just realized that Camden kind of looks like Winnie the Pooh )
