Poetry Friday: Grandchildren Rhymes

I had a lot of fun shopping for my grandchildren's Christmas presents!  I can't wait to see the expressions on their little faces when they open their gifts! This is Victor's first Christmas so it's all brand new to him. Evie is a two and a half  and an old pro when it comes to unwrapping presents. She'll show her brother how it's done!  There is just no greater joy than experiencing the magic of Christmas through the eyes of a child. Here are a couple of quick rhymes (really just an excuse to share photos with my Poetry Friday friends). I tried to imagine what they might be thinking, and this is what I came up with.
I wish all of you many magical moments this holiday season!

                                                   I don't care about Santa
                                                   or what he thinks of me—
                                                   'cause I'm on Grandma's Good List
                                                   and that's where I want to be!

Bright- colored sprinkles
adorn cut-out cookie dough
Oh, how beaut-i-ful!


Merry Christmas!
Heidi is our Poetry Friday holiday hostess this week at my juice little universe.


  1. Your grandchildren are beautiful, Linda! Cute poems, too.
    Happy Holidays! : )

    1. Thank you, Sheri! Happy Holidays to you too!

  2. Look at those little lights shine! Delicious. Thanks for joining us on the Solstice, Linda.

  3. Darling! (both the grandbabies AND the poems!!)

  4. Aw, these are wonderful! Love your poems and your pictures. So glad you shared both! Merry Christmas, Linda!

  5. Linda, your grandkids are beaut-i-ful! Great little poems too. Have fun with them this Christmas.

  6. Linda,

    Happy New Year! Aren't grandkids the best? I had one of my most memorable Christmases ever. We slept at my daughter's on Christmas Eve and spent Christmas morning with Julia.

  7. Being on Grandma's good list is definitely more important than being on Santa's -- Grandma's a lot more generous at our house. :-) I love your poems.

    This is the first I have seen these and they are adorable. We need to make a book of all your poems for the kids.
