Trimming the Tree

Two days after Thanksgiving,
so I need the step stool to get
last year’s Christmas tree box
from the garage to unwrap my
chubby-cheeked snowmen, red
birds with feet covered in tinsel
and ten or twelve post-a-notes
with addresses I never added to
the Christmas card list. You
put on some hot chocolate with
cinnamon and leftover berry pie
and I’ll get our pj’s and the
Elvis Blue, Blue Christmas cd
and meet you under the tree.

  1. this is full of excitement and promise…it is one of my favorite seasons to prepare for, though I will wait until the end of the second week of December before un-boxing a single decoration 🙂 ….mmm, now I want hot chocolate and Elvis 😀
