T'was the night before Christmas[at church]

T'was the night before Christmas
and all through the house
the girls gathered round
pinning curls on our heads
to wear with a bow!

The boys bringing ties out to match with the girls
Must have a white T-shirt just like my dad
Our shoes we have brought out
which now need some shining
to match with those girls!

The clothes all layed out
each pant lay with its shirt & tie
while each shoe lay by our fancy black tights!

And all through the house the busyness of Christmas
brought aching thoughts of our 'Lijah
to all of our hearts!

As the children lay sleeping
Mommy & Daddy worked hard on that pressing & shining
preparing for day break
which soon will appear!

Daddy, Mommy, Kakie & 'Si
will have thoughts of you
as we listen for songs
You are sure to be singing
With all of the Angels
Like 'Hark The Herald & Glory To God'
Merry 1st Christmas
Little Angel


  1. Very sweet post... I love the curlers!!

    And thank you for your kind is so much easier to talk to someone who knows how it feels to get such crappy news (and again, I am so sorry that you have had to endure the pain and loss that you have)...but I'd love to talk to you via e-mail so we can communicate on a more personal level.... (plus I can say t hings that I don't want to blog because I don't want Joe to read it....)
