Ani’s Christmas Alphabet

Reblogged from Ani’s Advent 2016

C is for the cheese she’s stashing in the fridge tonight

H is for the ham that’s going to make my breakfast right

R is for the raisins that I cannot have at all

I is for the icing, if I’m lucky, she’ll let fall

S is for the salmon that we have to start the meal

T is for the turkey that I share, or that’s the deal

M is for the mandarin, just like a little ball

A is for my antics as I chase it down the hall

S is you, dear Santa, and you’re coming soon to me….

…and I’m hoping I’ll find

some new tennis balls

beneath the tree for me!

  9. May all of England’s tennis balls soon come your way. May you be buried in bouncing and have someone you love to throw them for you!

    Ani, you’ve been a good dog this year (for the most part…) so I’m sure Santa will bring you lots of tennis balls and goodies to eat, at least a taste…
