To Stephanie & Stacey

I wrote this for my granddaughters when they were young. Now they are both in college.

Its almost Christmas and all through the day children are practising what to Santa they will say.

Mom is out looking in a decorated shop, she has been walking and shopping about ready to drop.

The tree has been bought and the cards are mailed, little twinkling lights on the porch have been nailed.

It is so quiet as the snow is drifting down, the carolers voice making a joyful sound.

The reindeer are prancing and pulling at the rein, just waiting for Santa to come down the lane.

The little elves have painted the sled a bright red, waiting for the children to get sleepy and go to bed.

The first stop will be at Stacey and Stephanie's place, sleeping with a little smile on their face.

Santa knows they will leave tasty snack, he can eat and drink while he adjusts his pack.

Then Santa will check his list to see who else has been good. The reindeer are ready as he knew they would.

Dad is yawning and stretching as he comes down the stairs. to have the best Christmas yet he really cares.

Santa and elves take good care of yourself, start making new toys to restock the shelf.

Groom the reindeer and feed them well. Goodbye until next year when we hear your bell.
