The Night Before Christmas

Tws the night before Christmas and all through the house not a creature is stirring except . . .
. . . me thinking and wondering if Santa Paws will visit me. I think I have been a pretty good kittie all the year long . . . well except I just cannot not help giving the mom love bites that are too strong (I cannot help myself as I love her soooooooo much) and getting on the kitchen counter . . .
. . . When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter . . . I sprang to the window to see what was the matter .
. . . The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below, when what to my wondering kittie eyes should appear . . . OMC can it be?! YES! A miniture sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer. He is here! He is really here!!!! . . .
And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof the prancing and pawing of each little hoof! . . . He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work and filled all the stockings; then turned with a jerk . . . he told me not to worry that I was a good kittie and my stocking was full! . .
. . . He sprang to his sleight, to his team gave a whistle and away they all flew like the down of a thistle. . .
. . . I heard him exclaim as he drove out of siegh . . .
"HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!"

Wishing everyone and their family a never-ending season of love and peace.

ps: Thank you to everyone for the beautiful Christmas cards via snail mail and email. I wanted to post the cards but time got away, once again. It was so nice of you to think of me. Mom has promised that she will soon visit with me again. Won't hold my breath until she does but hope to see you soon!!
