Tis 12 days before Christmas

... and here is our house. 
 Not a creature is stirring--except for a mouse

Sam noticed the tracks through the new-fallen snow
And quickly decided that old wall had to go

I busied myself and stayed out of sight.
Lest I say the wrong thing and start a big fight.

There was hammering and pounding mixed in with some sawing
He really didn't need my hemming and hawing

"I'm going to need you to help in a little while"
We took out the old window and I told him to smile


Visions of sugar plums (cranberries?)
Kept me occupied


Visions of  mouse holes
Kept Sam working outside

For me, I'm still cleaning and decking the hall
While Sam keeps on plugging away at his wall.
