Here’s a little poem to hopefully brighten up your day,

“Snowball”

I made myself a snowball

As perfect as could be.

I thought I’d keep it as a pet

And let it sleep with me.

I made it some pajamas

And a pillow for its head.

Then last night it ran away,

But first – it wet the bed.

By Shel Silverstein

From our house to yours, we wish each of you a very Merry Christmas as we remember that Jesus is the real reason for this holy season.
