A family poem.

Every year at Christmas, my dad writes a peom about the things the family did that year.
So far he hasn't, so here's my rendition. Merry Christmas!

Twas the night before Christmas, and in the Selover zoo,
Every creature was stirring- yes, even the Moo.

The presents were wrapped, the stockings laid out,
While everyone did last minute running about.

As always, Christmas is a time to reflect
On the things this year brought that we'll never forget.

Bob and Jan can be found in the ward on the reservation,
Almost daily they serve with no hesitation.

In fact, they spend so much time at the Papago Ward,
They're hardly ever home, there's no time to be bored.

Jeff still works away at good old UPS,
And he cut off his hair, every beautiful tress.

Jolene tends the bar at a local hotel,
She left Cosmo Prof, no more working in Hell.

Marley's growing so fast, and likes to bite.
But she's just so cute, that keep her, we might.

She answers to lots, but mostly the Moo,
We can't wait till October, when she'll already be 2.

Sam's almost finished with ultrasound classes,
When he's all done, he'll x-ray the masses.

Holly works at Jo Ann's, and makes a whole lot of crafts,
How creative she is will leave you aghast.

Heidi spends lots of time both at work and at play,
And has moved a few times, since divorce came her way.

The best news is we haven't killed each other yet,
Here's to hoping 2012 is a year free of regrets.
