Merry Christmas


This is the third and final installment of Christmas Rhyme Time with Caroline. I've written many others, but ya gotta know when to say when ;) Besides, I still have to get started on 2009's poem!!!
This poem I wrote in 2005 after I had my twins. They're almost five and sooooooo excited this year for Christmas. I'm not sure we are going to make it through the day...

It’s been a different year,
What, with twins and all.
No more “quick stops” at Target
Or long trips to the mall.

With the holidays approaching
I needed a better plan --
I’m not nearly as mobile
With two more kids in our clan.

I tried on-line shopping
A sort of “cyber St. Nick”
All of my gift shopping done
With just a few easy clicks.

JCrew, Amazon
Toys R Us and more!
All of my favorite dot coms
Delivered right to my door.

The postman, the FedEx guy –
They all brought my things.
Everyday was like Christmas
Each time my doorbell would ring.

The mall at my fingertips.
My shopping done in no time.
But the best part of all:
No crowds and no lines.

It’s amazing what you can accomplish
While your little ones take naps.
Who knows – maybe next year?
I’ll even get it gift wrapped.

Great poem! I love online shopping. And I didn't know you had twins! Are you the model in your pictures? If so, it's not fair that you have a waist like that after having twins! :) Have a great Christmas! By the way, I love your brown paper packages.

CAROLINE,
I'LL SAY IT AGAIN, YOU HAVE TO GET ALL YOUR LOVELY POEMS TOGETHER AND HAVE THEM PUBLISHED IN A BOOK. YOU WOULD BE THE FIRST IN OUR FAMILY. WELL, TODAY IS 12/26/09---REALLY TIRED, BUT HAD A WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS DAY. I HOPE YOUR DAY WAS JOYOUS TOO. WE ALL WENT OUT FOR BREAKFAST TODAY, IT WAS NICE. IT IS RAINING TODAY, EVERYTHING IS FLOODED, ALL THE SNOW IS MELTING. TAKE CARE.
LOVE, AUNT RIZ
