The Elves' Surprise

'Twas the night before Christmas when the elves came around

To leave gifts for the children where they would be found.

Home from church, Maeve and Ian were ready for sleep

In the hope that Kris Kringle would stop by for a treat.

Before heading upstairs something bright caught their eyes,

Their names on two packages wrapped up with green ties.

"Elves were here! Elves were here!" They screamed with delight.

"A pair of pajamas  to put on tonight."

Just a few years ago this tradition was born

To start the festivities that will come Christmas morn.

Daughter Trish and her Mike and my grandchildren too

Put the sparkle in Christmas, so here's  my love to you.
