Twas Bennett's First Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas, when in our little house
Only one creature was stirring, and it wasn't a mouse.

The child was nestled all snug in his bed,
While visions of Atticus danced in his head.

Bennett was dressed in an outfit from Mella, and socks from June on his foot,
And on Christmas Day his clothes from Ami,
...he was given quite a pile of loot
A baby bundle wrapped in a blanket from Aubrey,
And he looked like an elf in the hat from Amber.
His eyes-how they twinkled! his dimples how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
And his first Christmas brought a sprinkling of snow.
He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself!

Our first holiday season as a little family we wish you,
"Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!"
