Rhyme time

Christmas 2011

Our Christmas was warm
in so many ways,
Not snow, but fun
has brightened our days.

The wish lists for all
were short and sweet,
"Have our cousins come over!"
they each did repeat.

Parties and family and games and fun
We spent time with family-
every last one.

This New Year's Day
 brought such a big change-
Our new ward boundaries
 have switched all the names.

Our family's been loved
and blessed through three years
We've shared laughter and fun
and shed very few tears.

Twenty-twelve is exciting
great fun will be had,
driving (Dallin and Landon) baptism (Benson) and a deacon (Austin),
turning 40 for dad!

Most important of all
we surely will tell,
our dear friends and family
will stay safe and well.

We hope you all had a Merry Christmas!

I hear the 13th ward had quite a few changes. Is it true that we would be in the Jerome Stake if we still lived at Shoshone Falls?

I love your poem!

Yes you would have been moved to Jerome. That probably takes some of the sting out of not moving back to that house!
