'Twas the weekend after Thanksgiving
And all through the house,
Elliot was talking about 'cwrissmiss yites'
and visiting Mickey Mouse.
The weather was sunny and calm;
Fred hung up the lights.
With lights on our house,
You can imagine Elliot's delight.
Inside we went when the night went dark
And in the morning rose to see
Another day that would prove to be perfect
For erecting the Christmas Tree.
Elliot jumped and Elliot screamed;
He even did a happy dance.
Ran circles around the tree -
I think he almost peed his pants.
Decorations went up with Elliot's help -
On bells, on garland and candy canes too
All hung at eye-level...
Except for a few.
With Christmas music on,
And the light's soft glow...
The only thing we're missing
Is some good Nebraska Snow.
