T’was two days after Christmas when all through the house,

the children were playing with giggles and shouts.

Their fevers had broken but not before sharing

with daddy, for whom, mommy is now caring.

A few days prior, festivities abounded

pictures were taken, delicious food mounded.

At church we celebrated the birth of our King

with God’s message of grace and carols we did sing.

Twelve years it took, for all Shaffer boys to appear

at the same time together for this time of year.

Now here with their wives, (and two little ones!) in tow

Linda and Jed have ALL their ducks in a row!

There is still a lot of fun to be had

If we can lick this flu bug for good, we’ll sure be glad.

In the mean time, the healthy grown ups dispersed

in conference calls and various workouts immersed.

Movies and bowling, sibling outings and riding…

We’ll be busy for sure, in good times abiding.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year’s to you

from our family to yours (We hope you don’t get the flu!)
