You’re running out of time. Tell us.

Marie’s Finishing touch:

Saving the Best for Last

In the quiet of Christmas Eve,
An empty manger beneath the tree
Receives the Baby King
As clock hands point heavenward.

Walt’s Last Minute:

For the sake of humanity
All I want is my sanity.
Wrapped up in a big red bow.
Even if I have to get it myself!
