Christmas at the Collins is an exciting time, we’ll try to tell you all about it in this little rhyme.
Then the tree is bought and delightfully trimmed
The lights around are slowly dimmed.
Gingerbread houses and cookies are the fun
That delight the children as they
desire the eats.
The stockings are hung by the chimney with care
With hopes that Saint Nicholas would soon be there.
When morning arrived goodies were tucked in
The children awoke to find their secrets within
As gifts were unwrapped they tore off the bows,
Boots were the new gifts and excitement arose!
Grandma gets a watch to now know the time
Soup mixes, and cookies, help to save every dime.
Amy loves games and she opens one gift
To find the new LIFE is really a lift
Timmy, our farm boy, loves tractors and toys
John Deere is a favorite of every young boy.
Andrew, a college student, looks for useful things too,
A jacket, some pants, and even plaid shoes!
The best gift yet, goes to Bob, the Dad
His favorite movie, Hoodwinked, and a Coke poster make him glad.
A Christmas dinner of turkey and ham were enjoyed by each one,
Potatoes and gravy, dressing and even a bun.
So a Merry Christmas was had, yes it was had by each one.
Games followed the dinner and we had lots of fun!
