'Twas the Day after Christmas

'Twas the Day after Christmas
and I must confess,
The entire house
Is quite a mess.

There are wrappings galore
all around the tree
and dirty dishes abandoned
with disturbing glee

The unwrapped presents
stacked hither and yon
make an obstacle course
for tripping upon

And this morning in my jammies
with sleep in my eyes
I can only wonder
whose house do I spy?

It's obvious that we
sure had some fun
and worth all the clean up
that must be done

And Tidy Maid said
as she drove out of sight
I'm not cleaning your house,
It's too much of a fright.

So you know what I'll be doing
far into the night
Merry Day after Christmas
is not a delight!

Hope your Christmas was a good one and that Santa brought you all on your list!

love that lil' poem and it is so what my house looks like - i have been working all morning to get things caught up and i can finally see my kitchen counters at least... alas, the kids keep dragging out more stuff than I can pick up :O(

Cute it and bring it out in a couple years when the twins have "stuff" all over. Wes and I have a system now...we just love them, play with them and we both tag team the minute they leave to pick it all up...LOL It works and we are ready for the next time they arrive. Merry Christmas to you and your entire family.
