Year in Review

Twas the night before Chirstmas, when all through the house
Not a computer was stirring not even its mouse
The stockings were hung on the bookshelf with care,
In hopes that the UPS man soon would be there.

The baby was nestled all snug in her bed
While visions of breast milk danced in her head
And baby in her jammies, and I in my G's  ,
Had just settled our brains for a long winter's zzz's

When out in the living room there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
David  had just slung some complex computer code
Enabling the internet to reach his computer nodes

The problem had only taken  a week
but that feels like forever when you're a computer geek
All the professors at Stanford will be so impressed
Maybe tonight he will finally get some rest.

And I tossed and I turned  stressing over my class
of 20 first graders that all had to pass
but soon I remembered I was on a year leave
Its no longer my problem I feel so relieved.

 Baby Aspen has been such  a fun new addition
That three in our family was an easy transition
Her early arrival was quite unexpected.
I guess she decided it was about time she ejected.

This year has been fun for team Erickson
I'm thankful  last Christmas we hit a homerun.
So, I exclaim to my friend on a private blogger site.
"Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!"

Hey Debbie! It's April. I didn't know you had a blog, but I saw you post on FB that you had done a year in review, so I checked it out. I hope you don't mind if I check in again :) Very cute poem, and I'm glad you guys have had such an exciting year.
