~ Twas the week before Christmas and here on Cape Cod, Grandpa was reclining and giving a nod, to Grandma who was wrapping and trimming the tree, all bought with her shopping from an Internet spree.
~ The stockings were hung on the chimney with care, ready for Santa who would soon be there.
~ Cookies in the oven and pies on the sill.
~ Save some for Santa who undoubtedly will, arrive right on schedule with a splash heard by all, at the salt water's edge where he gives the call...
~ "Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! Santa is here...bringing you gladness and holiday cheer.”
~ Grandma & Grandpa raise their glasses high, toasting another year of memories gone by.
~ With thanks for their blessings and health and good cheer.
~ "Merry Christmas to all and a Happy New Year!"
