Christmas Eve 2008

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the Pillay house
The pots were a cooking, with much of a rouse
The stockings were hung by the Chimney with Care
In hope that the Rowes and the Rules would be there

Then in not time at all the doorbell did ring
And who should be there the Rowes in their bling
When out in the driveway there arose such a clatter
we sprang from our chairs to see what was the matter

There opening the car door was the rules
with all of their tools

And then in a twinkling we heard with a boast
Come and get it said Carla, here is the roast

We sat at the table all hungry as mice,
Not a murmur was heard just the tinkling of ice
With all of us fed on Butternut Soup
With thought that Joe was going to jump through a hoop
The veggies & roast were just the best
And then we were told you have to wait for the rest

All Emily wanted to do was open some gifts
That Kris Kindle had brought and left with some sifts (?)
We all opened our presents with much glee
And oh wait a pity they weren't all for me
Next to the pudding we all did suppose
The Chocolate mousse was made all by Rose
But little did we know that Carla had made
A ginger pudding which was just the best -wade
We spoke not a word and went straight to our work
Our bellies were filled with o such a jerk
And Natalie, Malcolm, Jessica and Kirsten were all filled with glee
and said who is first to go upstairs and pee!
Then Derrick, Emily and Rose said oh my Jeeves
It is so unfortunate but we must leave

Joe & Carla did exclaim as we drove out of sight

Merry Christmas to all and to all a Goodnight!
