Is Christmas Today?

Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one’s youth. Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them; they shall not be ashamed, but shall speak with their enemies in the gate. - Psalm 127:4-5
“Is Christmas today?” Melissa does say.
No not yet, it’s still four weeks away.
She’s on the computer in order to write,
But first she makes sure that the font is just right.
“I spend too much time on the computer says Mom.
But check out my website:”

“Is Christmas today?” Dalton does say.
No not yet, it’s still three weeks away.
Dalton loves cheese, and he loves it a lot,
But it has to be yellow and must never be hot.
With crayon and scissors he always does labor.
Are you ready to take on his paper lightsaber?

“Is Christmas today?” Elijah does say.
No not yet, it’s still two weeks away.
Elijah is still enamored with trains.
He drives them, he draws them, they fill up his brains.
The big green tractor he has a longing to steer.
He begs and he pleads till he’s on the John Deere.

“Is Christmas today?” Jessie does say.
No not yet, it’s still one week away.
Jessie likes dresses that swirl when you twirl.
Stockings and bows are the choice of our girl.
Everyone thinks she’s so quiet and meek.
Just try to cross her, and you’ll hear her loud shriek.

“Is Christmas today?” Abigail does say.
No not yet, but it’s just one day away.
Abigail has Velcro curls in her hair.
Is that hay and yesterday’s pizza in there?
She hops in the van whenever she’s told,
And the first thing she says is “What can I hold?”

“Is Christmas today?” the children do say.
Yes, it’s finally here, and the kids say “Hurray!”

This was our family's Christmas letter this year. My wife and I wrote it to give everyone a glimpse at our children's personalities.
Have a very merry and blessed Christmas. - Jeff
