Kramer Chronicles-Twas the Night Before Christmas...

and all through the house not a creature was stirring,
not even a catnip mouse!
 while on the prowl through the house a sound outside made my heart pitter-patter,
 so I sprang to the window to see what was the matter!

I retrned to my prowoling when nothing appeared,
when from the corner of my eye I noticed something with a beard.

Quietly I crept through the house like a spy,
 to see what lingered in the shaodws nearby.
When what to my feline eyes did appear,
 but monsters with teeth and hair near their ears!

I jumped in the air my heart beating fast,
 I must escape now before they get me at last!

But then it occurred to my fine feline senses
this was the night Santa Paws would leave presents!

Not wanting to miss him or lead him astray
I must convince him I'd been a good cat all day.
So I sat with the dogs watching and waiting,
with toys in our minds and much anticipating,

 As the candles threw shadows our hopes were alight,
 as we waited for Santa Paws to bring presents that night.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
What'd ya expect but a Charlie Brown Christmas tree when you only have Peanuts to spend:)?
Have a very Merry Christmas!


  1. Dear Kim, I chuckled at this post. Cute. Especially when all are napping.

    Your home is so lovely and decorated just for the occasion in a lovely manner.

    Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year. This year sure got away from me. I'm stunned it's almost 2011.

    Enjoy visiting your beautiful blog and having you as a blogging buddy.

    Those photos could be Christmas cards, they're so pretty. Especially the doggie with the light behind his head. The poem was fun, too!

  9. Kim, what a delight this post is! And your furry family members are adorable. Thanks for the smile. Hope you're doing well and ready for Christmas. I have a few gifts still to wrap and a few finishing touches to do on the decor, but I have family coming into town tonight, so what doesn't get done today won't get done! We're so excited about the baby's first Christmas, and it has been a joy to watch him stare in wide-eyed wonder at the lights and the trees and the shiny ornaments. I'm looking forward to visiting with you more, Kim, now that we have settled into routine days. What a blessing that is! Have a Merry, merry Christmas, my friend...
