and all through the house...
were twinkling lights and mini reindeer. The stockings were all hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.
Ever since I received The Illustrated Book of Poetry book when I was 7 (my only one still to this day), this was one of my favorite poems to read. I treasured the book and have it on my bookshelf now for safe keeping. It's a bit tattered and torn, but that's ok.
I'm saving it for my grandchildren down the road!
Have a wonderful Christmas Eve!
