Twas the night before Christmas in the year twenty eleven.
The house appeared quiet, at just half past seven.
The stockings were hung on the mantle with delight.
And the tree was adorned with ornaments and lights.
The twins were both sleeping, tucked in cozy and tight,
while dreams filled their heads of Santa’s visit overnight.
With Mama wrapping gifts, and Dada building an easel,
we were working so hard to make Christmas morning gleeful.
The twins still believe, at least for this year,
in the magic of Santa, the elves and reindeer.
They understand the importance of trying to behave,
in order to be rewarded with the toys that they crave.
Dozens of cookies were baked- sugar, almond, and spritz,
and with milk they were placed on the hearth for St. Nick.
We assumed the reindeer would, of course, want a snack,
so we also left carrots for Santa to bring to his pack.
Addy and Asher love the holidays; Christmas is great,
but the very best aspect is up for debate.
They relish all the parties, seeing family, and good eats,
the singing of carols, and giving friends treats.
The twins created wish lists, and tried hard to be good.
They hoped for cars and a bug, as we understood.
They took photos with Santa, and fed Blitzen and Dasher.
Such an amazing time of year for Adeline and Asher.
With an ear infection and staph, they were eager for St. Nick,
despite the fact that they were just getting sick.
No fever or malaise could stifle their joy,
there was so much excitement for the little girl and boy.
Finally ready for morning, I fell asleep for the night,
for a few hours of rest until dawn’s breaking light.
Like an ebullient child, I was eager to arise,
to experience the magic through Addy and Asher’s eyes.
Christmas day brought to us, such happiness and wonder.
we’re thankful for the gifts, but even more for each other.
And as I summarize this season with love in my heart,
There is one heartfelt message I hope to impart.
Thanks to our friends and family, for the laughs and the love,
you enrich our lives, and we can’t thank you enough.
Happy holidays to one and all, a happy new year as well.
From our family to yours, here’s to a great twenty twelve.
Welcome to Twinfinite Love. I hope that my periodic entries shed some light on the sometimes chaotic, but always joyful day-to-day shenanigans that come with raising twins. I can assure you, our life is never boring, and I have the blog to prove it.
