Tis the day before Christmas and all thru the house,

Everyone is sneezing and sniffling and feels like a louse.
My eyes are so watery I hardly can see,
But the presents are wrapped and put under the tree;
One ear is plugged, the other is not,
My nose and sinuses are so full of sn__!
My Christmas knitting is done and has all been delivered,
Now I just sit in my chair by the fire and shiver.
We've seen all our family, both in Ottawa and Saint John,
This Christmas day we are going to be on our own.
We will drink lots of juice, and maybe even a toddy,
It's good for the soul, and good for the body.
We will take the cold pills, nasal spray and the rest,
Vitamin C, Cold FX we will put to the test.
We will rest, eat our dinner, and then rest some more.
This should fix up our darn colds, that is for sure!
Now I wish all my friends, from far and from near,
A very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

From our family to yours!

Have a very, very Merry Christmas, Donna (and please extend the same wishes from me to your dear Hubby, J!). I hope the cold is gone and you feel better in the a.m. -- Santa is sure to leave you exciting things under your tree, and it would be much more pleasant to be able to see them (minus the watery eyes!).

Best wishes, enjoy the holidays, and I'll see you in the New year, if I don't bump into you sooner!
(PS ... very good version of the Night Before Christmas -- you are sooo clever!)
PSS ... those are some fine looking family members you have there -- the little ones are getting so big!

Oh I love your little Christmas cards :) Sorry to hear you're under the weather. My constable is as well and my Hank seems to be suffering another bout of intestinal upset. Me? I'm just sleep deprived between the two of them.

Hope you're both feeling better before too long. Have a lovely Christmas just the same.
