Christmas Poem

My husband is very talented in many ways and this is one of them.  He wrote this over the course of an hour or two on Christmas Eve and I didn't even have to spell check it!  Hope you enjoy!

Twas the night before Christmas
As I write this letter
My family thought I couldn't get this done, 
But I'll show them better.

It still isn't Christmas yet
just a few hours to go,
I'm writing next to the fire
As snow falls out the window.

The kids are excited
As Santa's drawing near,
It's going to be a chore
Getting them to bed I fear.

The family's getting bigger
With a new puppy named Koko,
She's tearing up the backyard toys
And driving mom loco.

Kristy is running the daycare at home,
She loves spending time with the little ones
Joey's still working at SUU
Having fun and bringing in the funds (actually I think Kristy still makes more than me).

Kelley started kindergarten this year,
She really likes school.
Tyler spending the day playing trains and cars
And thinks he's super cool.

Well again we leave you our poem
On this most holy of nights.
Hope to see you soon,
We'll leave on the lights.

But if not, we hope this letter
Finds you and your kin
Happy, healthy, harmonious
And don't forget to grin.

For on this night the reindeer fly
And the fat man rides again.

Joey, Kristy, Kelley and Tyler

So apparently, I don't have the right address for you. The letter I sent came back. Will you email me your address, and I will resend our letter. Thanks!
