BooMama's Tour of Homes 2008

'Twas the Season of Christmas
And at a "A Gift Worth the Wait"
There lived a sweet girl
With a smile on her face.

My name is Sara Madalin
And this is my first Season,
To know joy and laughter
And God's Love is the Reason.

In my home, bright and merry
There lives quite a crew
There's Mommy and Daddy
And my dog, Taco, too.

But of all the residents
In this home so warm
I am definitely the one
Who has the most charm.

We'll start with a look
At Baby Jesus and His guests,
Mommy likes this scene
Above all the rest.

Now on to the stockings
They are different you see
One for Daddy,
and Mommy
and, Oh yes, one for me.

On a table in one room
Mommy is so glad
To hang her mini-shoe collection
Yes, her fetish is that bad.

Now on to the sight
That's the grandest you'll see
It's the lights, the ornaments - 
Why, it's our Christmas tree!

It's decorated with lights
Of colors so bright
And I've tried to touch it,
I've tried with all my might.

But Mommy says, "No.
That's not for you, dear."
But, as she has learned,
"No" I don't hear.

So I try and I try,
At last she steps in,
"Those ornaments are priceless.
You break them, I can't replace them again."

For you see, they are special
Because for many years
Each one they have collected
From places far and near.

So, for now I will listen,
As hard as it will be,
But someday I hope
A few of those belong to me.

That is my tour
For all who have come
To the online visit
Of our humble, sweet home.

Merry Christmas to all,
Come back as you can
And if you see Santa,
Please tell him, I'm a BIG fan.

With lots of love,
