Christmas for the Grandparents

Twas the night before Christmas when what should appear but some boxes with jammies to last the New Year.
The boys settled down for Christmas story night than fell asleep to carols sung by candle light.
Papa with his Balvenie and I with my tea, had just settled down for a rest by the tree.
The stockings were ready, the parents were worn, so they went up to bed to sleep hard til next morn'.
The kids awoke early and snuck down the stairs to see if any presents awaited them there.
Imagine their delight when full weaponry awaited these Jedis under the tree.

Star Wars and Legos and a dump truck with dirt as well as Felix's new rumpus shirt ("Where the Wild Things Are" tee that he wore day and night for a solid week before I insisted on washing it.)
Jasper got into the action too; with all of his presents he knew just what to do.
He ripped and he tore with a gurgle and a coo.
The rest of the day was spent in delight, with putting together Legos and a light saber fight.
Thank you Grandma and Grandpa for all of our gifts. We love you and miss you and hope soon for a visit.
Merry Christmas!
