'Twas the night before Christmas, and all throughout the week
the DuPonts had been playing and not getting enough sleep.
Since their return from the sunshine, there was plenty to do
to get ready for Christmas and decorate too!
A tree was the first thing they needed to find.
At the grocery store they picked one, 'twas one of a kind.
Uncle Jai and cousin Dalen stayed over one night.
to help hang the candy canes and string up the lights.
Then Isla and mommy made garland out of pasta one day.
and a family trip to the studio to make ornaments made of clay.
There was time for some outings to play in the snow.
Isla turns out to be a pretty good skier, wouldn't you know?
The evenings were busy with parties and friends.
And plenty of last minute daytime errands.
Tonight we read stories and put food out for the reindeer.
And toasted friends and family, those far away and those near.
Now the stockings are hung by the chimney with care.
Let's hope Santa Claus finds us in Utah this year!
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
