Twas the night before Christmas at our house

Twas the night before Christmas
and all through the house
Ms. Allie was playing
With her new catnip mouse.

"Go to bed!" yelled your scribe,
Who was trying to sleep.
"It's one a.m.,  Allie!
Now QUIET!  Not a peep!"

Ms. Mitzi was sleeping
All snug in her crate,
With visions of stealing
Some food from mom's plate.

The fridge, it was full,
And the tree was so pretty,
The house was quite quiet
(Well, except for the kitty).

The computer was off,
Facebook was dead,
Though some music played softly
From a CD by the bed.

The stockings were filled -
Santa was smart.
Canada Post is much safer
Than a flight in the dark.

As I drift off to sleep,
Cat now on my chest,
I wish friends and family
Only the best:

A day full of joy,
A year full of peace,
Good friends and good health -
May these gifts never cease!
