Wanting the battery operated ones, too - that some kids had
Going to find and get the battery operated ones from an usher
I gave away these "for real" ones cuz the girls had gotten battery ones
Then Emily wants the real ones, too
I dropped mine and mom's (unlit) on the floor
Mary crawled around trying to find them
Then I crawled around looking for mine
All to the tunes of O Holy Night and Joy to the World
I moved over and sat next to mom.
There was almost more silly than sacred...
But it was all good!
We had a wonderful time -
One hour - eleven minutes
Then it'll be Christmas.
"Hope for the hopeless
Was born on that night."
