'Twas the night before Christmas and all through "Sandy Toes" house

Not a creature was stirring , just Sandy Toes and her computer mouse.

The stockings were all hung waiting to be stuffed but Sandy Toes was typing the best post out of the bunch.

The kids were all nestled, all snug in their beds,

While visions of Christmas bliss danced in their heads.

As Sandy Toes was trying to keep quiet in the night,

The moon shone through the window telling of late...with a flash and a click...her blog could not wait...

More words of her kids, cupcakes in pans, minivan express and words of her daughter's Christmas dress

There were blogs to visit and comments to be made...a giveaway to enter before her sleepy eyes would fade...

With one press of the button...it was done! Sandy Toes wrote her last posting of the year

Wishing her blog friends "Merry Christmas and Good Cheer"!

Loved the poem!!! We're going to miss you here in Blogland. Of course, most of us will most likely be taking a break, too. I know I want to spend as much time with my family as I possibly can, so I don't plan to blog as often as I have been.

You HAVE to let us know what your hubby got you for Christmas, though! The suspense is about to put me right over! Any more clues? You haven't been peeking, have you? Don't be naughty now! :)

I truly hope you and your family have a wonderful, unforgettable Christmas! God Bless You, my friend!
