Its almost Christmas and all through the day children have been practicing what to Santa they will say.
Mom is out shopping in the crowded shops, walking and shopping about ready to drop.
The tree is decorated and the cards all mailed. Twinkling lights on the porch have been nailed.
It's so quiet and still as the snow drifts down (not in south Texas). Carolers voices making a musical sound.
The reindeer are prancing and pulling at the rein, just waiting for Santa to come down the lane.
Little elves have painted the sled bright red, waiting for the children to go to sleep in their bed.
The first stop will be at our grandchildren's place, they will be sleeping with a little smile on their face.
Santa knows they will leave a real good snack, he can eat and drink while he adjusts his pack.
Then he will check his list to see who else has been good. The reindeer are ready to go as he knew they would.
Dad is yawning as he comes down the stairs, to have the best Christmas yet, he really cares.
Santa and elves take care of your self, start making new toys to put on the shelf.
Groom the reindeer and feed them well, until next year when we hear your bell.
