Christmas Dinner

Since I was young I never cared.
If christmas dinner was ever shared. 
Just wanted them presents and maybe a beer.
I'm not a grinch, but I've waited all year.

We used to have game hens and such fancy things.
But now chilli and potato soup is all sister brings.
I'm not complaining, I usually have two.
And I'm usually quite full when I am through.

Now out to the kitchen to clean up the mess.
You know that's the least I can do, I guess? :)
When the whole thing is over, it's really quite nice.
I just kinda wish we could celebrate twice.

December 17th
For Francine's contest
Thanks for looking out for me. :) Fracine and Andrea

    awesome your date is there!!! hey guess what? I got me a new cat today, named Razzmatazz. She is pure black. I never wanted a black cat but she was just so friendly. Right now she is hiding behind the tv stand. It will take a while for her to adjust . Wish me luck with her. Luv, Andrea
