Christmas Eve 2014


It’s Christmas Eve and the house is now silent,
Leo is in bed after much adieu about going.
The excitement and magic is in full swing tonight,
and there is no way that it is going to be slowing.
The man in red is soon to be on his way,
and Leo is on the lookout for the one and only sleigh.
He’s gone off to bed full of hopes for tomorrow,
Knowing when he wakes all the magic that will follow.

The Night Before Christmas was the book he was read,
‘Santa’s coming Mummy!’ was all that he said.
The story finished and he lay in in my arms,
Cuddles and excited chatter as I succumb to Leo’s charms.
Whispers of magic and coos of delight,
It will be hours before he goes down for the night.


A mince pie and milk await old Santa Clause,
While he breaks for a moment and relaxes his annual chores.
For when Leo awakes in the morning he’ll know,
That Santa has been and put on a rather splendid show!
As wrapping flies and the gifts are unsealed,
The magic of the day is being revealed.
For one little boy this is a very big year,
For it’s the very first one that it all becomes clear.

The house falls still as everyone sleeps,
And in only a few hours Leo will peep.
So for now it’s time for bed,
To catch some shut eye for this sleepy head.

From Life Unexpected we wish you a Merry Christmas!
